About Me

Welcome! My name is Hallie Lord. I’m 35 years old and have been married to Dan since October of 2001. We have six children including a baby boy born this past April, a three-year-old girl, a six-year-old girl, a seven-year-old girl, a nine-year-old boy, and a ten-year-old boy. Simply put: we’re crazy blessed.


I am the co-founder of the Edel Gathering; editor of (and contributing author to) Style, Sex, and Substance; my writing has appeared in a variety of online and print publications; and I’ve been delighted to have been a guest on several television and radio shows.


I believe that the purpose of all creative endeavors is to better come to know God and I am tickled pink that He has given me the time and desire to do so. I am equally grateful for vintage dresses, fresh flowers, Ella Fitzgerald, Margaritas, and coffee (all of which–in my humble opinion–also point directly to an all-loving and merciful God).
