Being a LadyCategory
When “Relationship Goals” first became a thing I thought it was pretty cute. There are images of couples doing really cute, funny things together with the caption “relationship goals”. They are quite popular with everyone it seems. From pictures of couples kissing and holding each other, doing cute poses, to being super awkward and funny together. While the idea is cute and the sentiment is..
Hi everyone, my name is Lisa Hallahan. If you don’t already know who I am, I am the author and founder of this blog. I started writing and posting regularly on the blog (then called Young Keepers of the Home) in March of 2013. It was a small ministry then and I enjoyed sharing my thoughts and what God was telling me to write. Soon, the ministry quickly grew and grew. It came to a point where I..
I knew a girl once who was worried that she wouldn’t look like the perfect Christian girl to whoever she met. She was worried that the older women in her church wouldn’t think she was as mature or as wise as her own mother. She was worried that the younger Christian women would think that she was not “relatable” enough-meaning she had to get with the modern flow of Christianity.
A little while ago, one of my friends went on a date with a guy. He was attractive, fun, loved the Lord, passionate, and she loved spending time with him. As her best friend though, something about this guy rubbed me the wrong way. He had this long list of qualifications necessary to be his girlfriend.
The many qualifications on this list ranged from “sexy,” to “passionate woman of God”, to..
I’m in my early twenties with many friends in serious relationships, getting engaged and getting married. I’ve been to 5 weddings in the last 2 years. In that space of time, I’ve been on a small handful of dates and tried to test the waters with a few guys. I may have lain in bed imagining our lives together after the night we met. I may have placed them on a pedestal, creating high..
Do you ever think about how fairy tales seem to have the perfect ending? Now, think about everything that has to happen before the ending can take place. Many events happen between the beginning and the end. In just about every story, there are high and low points, just like in our everyday life. We have all been given a unique and beautiful story. I am going to share how God has turned the..
I have been allowed the honor to watch new life come into this world. For the new mother it is a painful process, for some it is long and hard, for others it is quick and easy. Each person experiences the labor process differently and it cannot be compared to another’s experience. But no matter how much pain the end result is the same. All that pain is forgotten once that new mom is holding..
Every new year, I’m encouraged to prayerfully choose a characteristic of Christ or a single verse to meditate and unravel throughout the coming year. For 2015, I chose to seek out examples of STRENGTH and how God’s divine power strengthens us when we are weak.
My “year verse” for 2015 has been 2 Corinthians 12:10
“For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships,..
I always wanted to be a doctor when I grew up. But not just any doctor, the best doctor. I had it all planned out by the time I was fourteen. Undergrad, Medical School, Residency, etc. It was going to happen. The best schools in the country were going to accept me because I was going to have that 4.0 g.p.a. and countless recommendation letters in the bag. This was my one and only plan. My life..
I grew up reading (and rereading) the insanely popular relationship books on courtship and dating. Titles like, “When God Writes Your Love Story,” “When Dreams Come True,” “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” “Boy Meets Girl” and several others were well worn books on my bookshelf.
As a 14,15,16 and 17 year old girl I was gung ho on board with the idea of “leaving the pen in God’s hands.”
I trusted God..
