Wow! That looks like a wonderful book. Thanks for sharing it with us :). I hope that I'll be able to read it some day. The Bible gives us plenty of inspiration regarding hospitality, but it is also great to have books on it which give further encouragement and practical advice.

What a great book!
Deb, thanks for always being an example to me of a godly woman who shows hospitality. Your home is a joy to visit!


Looks like it might would make a good read. Today it seems everyone is too busy to visit back and forth. I grew up with a big front porch and we always had neighbors swinging or just "sitting" to visit and I didn't grow up in the country. I also remember our year spent in the Chicago area as newlyweds. We always set an extra plate for Sunday dinner just in case we found someone to invite to stay for the afternoon. It was a great experience for a "new cook"! :) WIll be interested in your book review. Jane


This looks like my kind of book...thanks for the recommend


Thank you for sharing this book recommendation with us Deb!

I have another very good book on hospitality to recommend..."Open Heart, Open Home" by Karen Mains.

And as a complement to books on hospitality, Edith Schaeffer has a book called, "The Hidden Art of Homemaking". In it she shares some examples of reaching out to strangers.
She also brings some thoughts to presentation of food and using one's gifts of art, music, etc in the home, that could be used in hospitality as well!
