1st Interview... Halea

1. Choose five words to best describe yourself.
Shy, Adventurous, Funny, Reader, Modest

2. What is one thing few people know about you?
The way my name is spelled, H-A-L-E-A (instead of Hailey), means "love"... and my Hebrew name, Dodi means "My Beloved."

3. Please tell us a little about yourself and your family. 
We are a simple family living in the Sunshine State =)
We love YHWH, and are trying to walk in His perfect ways.
We have been homeschooling for almost 5 years.

4. Do you have a blog/website? If so, what is it about?
Yep. =) It is called Halea's Refuge, and it is mainly the chronicles of my Torah Observance as a teenage American girl =)
I hope it is an encouragement to others on the narrow path, and peculiar to those seeking Truth.

5. Do you play any musical instruments?
Do bongos count? (he-he) I love to play them during worship! =o)

6. What do you think it means to be set-apart?
I think it means to follow YHWH's instructions (Torah), and that it is apparent to all those around, because you are untainted by the world... like Yoseph!
I also think being set-apart is about what you do once you realize you sin, not never-ever sinning... like David!

7. What is your idea of modest dress?
I can tell you how I try to dress modestly. When I am wearing a skirt, I make sure it is below my knees, with either tights or pants underneath. If I decide to wear pants, I make sure my shirt or skirt reach at least to mid-thigh, if not longer... and they are loose fitting. I wear sleeved shirts that reach to at least the middle of my upper arm. Also, I always wear undershirts, that are also loose fitting. And I do wear my head covered when I go out of the house, as well. I don't always wear my head covered in my house, unless I am studying Torah, or doing a bible study of some kind. Nothing too form fitting. =)

I've talked with my mom about it, and she approves that I can start interviewing other women {and girls}... :) YAY!! So, my first interview should be soon, I'm just waiting for an email with the answers! :)

Here's another video from Shawn McDonald... I really like his music, how about you?

Have an awesome day!!


I Need YOU


Shabbat Shalom!!



Sweet Miss Rosi made some buttons for me!! Thank you sooo much... :) I have been wondering how to make them, but could never really figure it out... So, they are all on my sidebar, and you can pick whichever one you want to use {if you want to use it} since I couldn't decide on just one. {Wow, I sure did use quite a few yous in that last sentence... lol ;)}
Thanks again Rosi, they are all so pretty... ;)

<3 & Blessings,


Perfect Peace

He always gives us Perfect Peace!

“Open the gates, let the righteous nation which guards the truth enter in.
“The one steadfast of mind You guard in perfect peace, for he trusts in You.
“Trust in יהוה forever, for in Yah, יהוה, is a rock of ages.
Isaiah 26:2-4

May you have a peaceful Sabbath!!
