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).


I would *love* to hear from you! You can email me at MoxieWife (at) gmail (dot) com.

Sadly, though I try my best, I’m not always able to respond to each and every piece of email I receive. Forgive me! And please know that I’m positively tickled pink by any and all correspondence that finds its way into my inbox!

I’m just in one of those crazy busy seasons of life right now…

Thank you for understanding!


So, welcome again, new friends! I’m so happy to “meet” you! Do stick around. I try to keep things positive and uplifting around here and I treasure your contributions to the conversation!
