  1. (in)courage,
    I’ve ordered and am anxiously awaiting for my copy to arrive! I agree that if we make are homes hospitable to the One who made our home possible, and seek to serve Him first, everything else (including the awkwardness of opening our door) will simply fall into place.

  2. I enjoy opening the doors for others because it makes me feel good inside. We try during the summer months to invite family and friends over for a nice picnic and to be together. I also enjoy the fact that they claim all had a good time and plenty of food for everyone a long with deserts. My door is always open to anyone . I just wish they came a round more often.

  3. Jen & In Courage,

    I believe hospitality is about friendships. Don’ worry about your house, decor, or the food. If that is the focus then your concerned about hosting & making an impression. God wants us to make friendships that last a long time. Invite that neighbor or friend over for tea/coffee or what ever & have a few snacks & just chat. You can make it a pot luck & have a few over just to talk & be with each other.

    Blessings 🙂
