Welcome to Hallstrom Heart & Home!

Hey, I'm Jess

A few years ago I was in my quiet time with the Lord when this dream for a blog began to bloom in my heart. I spent a few months praying about it and seeking His face. Through many trials and errors, this blog came out of those prayers.  

If you were in my home, I would make you a cup of coffee or tea, and we would sit down at my kitchen table and get to know one another.  

Since we're apart, grab your favorite beverage, put your feet up, and read on. May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him. I pray the eyes of your understanding are enlightened, and that you are filled with hope. My prayer is that you leave my blog feeling more refreshed and inspired than when you came.



Stay awhile

“Our tendency in the midst of suffering is to turn on God. To get angry and bitter and shake our fist at the sky and say, "God, you don't know what it's like! You don't understand! You have no idea what I'm going through. You don't have a clue how much this hurts."

The cross is God's way of taking away all of our accusations, excuses, and arguments.

The cross is God taking on flesh and blood and saying, "Me too.”

Trust The Lord In The Wilderness

Trust The Lord In The Wilderness

But what happens to our faith when we go through a wilderness season or dark period? That's what God wants to know. He wants to know if we can follow Him in the valley. He wants to know if we'll remain faithful to Him when things get hard. The truth is, our trust tends to wane when we are led into a wilderness season.

Mourn The Loss

Mourn The Loss

When we mourn things that have happened to us, we work through our sadness and grief. As we mourn, a healing work begins in our hearts and our bodies won't take on our pain.
