Grabbing Hold and Hanging On

By |2016-06-22T04:30:11+00:00June 22nd, 2016|Uncategorized|18 Comments

Oh, hello, Blog. It's me, Hannah. I've been away for a bit. Sorry. I blame summer. Summer tends to steal things, like my schedule. And my children’s bedtimes. And my clean-ish bathroom. And my desire to blog. But in case you were wondering, we are quite well. And thank you for asking. Josh is growing a beard stout enough to shame a lumberjack, and I still love him in spite of it.

When Our Lists Look Like THIS:

By |2016-06-01T05:00:32+00:00June 1st, 2016|Uncategorized|7 Comments

I’m back from a writer’s conference in the lovely Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina this week. He's cute. But very, very sticky. I came home refreshed in my mission and inspired to write beautiful words to the glory of God. I came home loving my writer friends and praising God for the non-writer friends who prayed for me while I was away. I came home ready to be [...]

On Finding Balance (It’s Not at Chuck-E-Cheese)

I'm writing over on a sweet friend's blog this week. It's all about balancing being a mom and working and life and how I finally figured out the key to never being overwhelmed again. Heh. Just kidding. But check it out anyway, please. I pray God encourages you as you read it here... P.S. Also, Annie's an amazing women with an amazing story. Check out her blog and her new book while you're [...]

Bubbles, Books, and I’m Finally Back

By |2016-05-04T08:25:11+00:00May 4th, 2016|Uncategorized|50 Comments

So, I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus. It wasn’t intentional, but sometimes things happen, right? Let me catch you up. There was a trip to Nashville. I spent time with some amazing people. Josh played some expensive guitars. And the kids will remember only the bubble baths. Then there’s been sickness. I was afraid it was hitting me like it did this time last year. Remember the pneumonia? Two [...]

For the Mom Who Can’t Stop Worrying

By |2016-04-14T08:51:22+00:00April 14th, 2016|Uncategorized|2 Comments

I’ve seen my children kidnapped more than once. I’ve watched predators stalk my daughters and seen my sons run into busy streets. I’ve stood helplessly by while tornados destroyed our home and wept inconsolably over the mangled remains of our minivan. I’ve been through a lot…and yet none of it is real. Join me over at TheBetterMom today, would ya? I'm guest blogging about how I fight those invisible fears that keep [...]

Holiness, Sin, and Tapered-Leg Jeans

By |2016-03-30T07:40:24+00:00March 30th, 2016|Uncategorized|10 Comments

I suspect God had to chuckle at himself a bit when he gave me two daughters right off the bat.  Payback would be sweet. My mother especially deserves a good stern handshake for surviving my teen years. Clothing was a major issue. In my 14-year-old brilliance, I was certain that those high-waisted pants and tapered-leg jeans she wore would never, ever in a thousand-bazillion years be in style, and therefore she [...]

It’s Impossible.

Have you seen the video?  (That sounds like the subject line on a nasty spam email, but I promise you, this one's legit.)  Because I am a dork and can barely operate our toaster oven, it is almost pointless for me to even attempt to figure out how to post videos to this dadblamed blog. So you'll have to follow the link to view it. But do it, please. You'll [...]

The Picture I’m Not Supposed to Post

By |2016-03-02T05:04:05+00:00March 2nd, 2016|Uncategorized|6 Comments

Some weeks you just don’t have it.  Posted it anyway. Oops. (And I like that it looks like he's wearing a hair net. Just voted, Josh? Or just served some meatloaf? Either way, well done.) This is one of them.  It’s a normal week with normal things, but a feeling is heavy in the pit of my stomach. It’s worry or fear or maybe it’s just a general [...]

Cleaning Toilets One-Handed

By |2016-02-24T05:31:42+00:00February 24th, 2016|Uncategorized|16 Comments

I was cleaning the bathrooms one day last week as I often do (okay, as I occasionally do), and Christian came in to see what I was up to. My mind was elsewhere and I gave him a quick rundown, wishing, honestly, that he’d just leave me alone. I wanted to get this done and preferably without the help of a three-year-old.  But he stayed. “What are you doing?” he [...]

(Don’t) Believe in Love

By |2016-02-10T05:25:40+00:00February 10th, 2016|Uncategorized|4 Comments

Some months ago, I had had a rough day. I can’t remember the specifics, but by the time I crawled into bed that night I didn’t have much left. Thankfully though, I married well. Turning to Josh I asked him to pray for me. “I’m feeling discouraged,” I explained.  At least he's terribly handsome. He did. And what followed will surely go down in Hall folklore forever. “Lord, [...]
