  1. Hi Jen,
    Having read your posts for many years, I consider you the “anti-Martha Stewart” lol. Nothing against Martha, but your brand of hospitality focuses on who is coming to visit, not showcasing your home or your talent. I’ve pre-ordered my book…looking forward to a good read!! How do we get the coupon code? Would love to get a “freebie”….so many pretty things to choose from 🙂 All the best to you in your book launch.

  2. Congratulations, Jen. What a worthy message. I’m so looking forward to reading this book. I have a bunch of books I plan to read on my porch over the summer, and this is one of them! (Summer + Porches + Books = One Happy Brenda. 🙂 ) I pray God blesses this new release with His favor. ((hug))

  3. Jennifer,

    Congratulations on the book release. I pray this blesses women everywhere. You bring new meaning to hospitality. It isn’t about a perfect clean house, but about who is there & why. I love the idea of taking hospitality on the road. I think we just need to take the first step & invite someone to dinner or out for coffee/tea & conversation. I’ve been the recipient of hospitality & try to extend it when I can.

    Blessings 🙂

  4. I just caught the tail end of your live feed on Instagram. I’m Hilda and I talked about feeling abandoned by family and friends after the loss of my granddaughter. I loved hearing about your new book and pre-ordered it! I will be praying for your son on his missionary trip and for you love. ♡
