In Just Open the Door: How One Invitation Can Change a Generation, author Jen Schmidt has set out to reframe how we think about hospitality and to equip us to walk a road of welcome in our daily lives. Jen knows that every time we choose open-door living — whether in our homes or by taking hospitality on the road just like Jesus — those we invite in get to experience the lived-out gospel, our kids grow up in a life-lab of generosity, and we trade insecurity for connection.
Discover daily rhythms of kindness, generosity, and presence at home and on the go. Learn to view welcome as worship, and become a woman of influence through hidden hospitality. Create spaces of welcome in your heart, home, and beyond, and learn to do so as Jen Schmidt guides you through this 7-session Bible study book Just Open the Door: a Study of Biblical Hospitality.
Jen Schmidt’s Just Open the Door Bible study leader kit includes one Bible study book, two DVDs, and video downloads of the teaching sessions. Within the Just Open the Door Bible study, you will be given opportunities to look to Jesus as your model for hospitality — discover how He lived a life full of interruptions, yet always welcomed people and invited them to follow Him, and learn to replace cultural expectations with biblical hospitality to create a legacy of invitation and reflect Jesus through simple acts of service.
Open-Door Living is a gift book inviting you to replace the expectations and anxiety of hosting with encouragement and easy ways to welcome people into your home and point them to Christ. Jen Schmidt starts with an invitation to the heart of hospitality, then shares her best practical ideas to remove stress from four aspects of hosting: food, cleaning, atmosphere, and connection. Featuring beautiful graphics and devotional reflections, Open-Door Living will give you the confidence you need to share the gift of your home.
While we are all hungry for friendship, it’s the fear of feeling awkward and being rejected, left out, or hurt (again) that often keeps us from connecting.

Starting with that guarantee from the most faithful friend who ever lived — Jesus — this book is a step-by-step guide to friendships you can trust. It answers the questions that lurk under the surface of every friendship — What are we afraid of? What can’t we change? What can we change? And where do we start? In Never Unfriended, Lisa-Jo Baker shares personal stories and practical tips to help you make the friends and be the friend that lasts.

Pull up a chair and join Lisa-Jo and the (in)courage friends as they unpack what it takes to be a friend in this 7-session Bible study book called We Saved You A Seat. In today’s busy world, we’re wired to be “fine,” warding off authenticity for pleasantries, shielding ourselves from misunderstanding or judgment, hiding in the shadows of our busyness to escape intimate friendship with the women God places in our lives. Learn what Jesus meant when He invited us to love others, and see what it takes to do “the hard work of getting along.”
Lisa-Jo Baker’s We Saved You A Seat Bible study leader kit includes one Bible study book and two DVDs. The Bible study book helps the leader to guide questions and discussions within small groups. Through this book and its accompanying video series, you will be given opportunities to explore your relationship with Jesus as a model for friendship, debunk the myth of effortless friendship, overcome the fear of knowing and being known, and stop running from friendship and find the courage to connect.
We Saved You A Seat Bible study book for teen girls by Lisa-Jo Baker takes girls deeper into Scripture to learn how to create, invest in, and keep up lifelong friendships. Jesus is the role model for our friendships and Scripture is the foundation. Over the course of seven weeks, girls will learn that true friendship takes showing up and being willing to go first, being vulnerable and knowing that real friendship is messy, encouraging rather than competing, and much more!
Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real Life Engagement is a journey with (in)courage writers sharing real-life inspirational stories, practical Scripture application, and connection challenges that will encourage you to embrace the desire God has given each of us for connection, to invest in meaningful relationships right where God has you, and to become the friend you wish you had. The (in)courage community invites you to grab a cup of coffee, pull a chair up to the table, and commit to creatively and prayerfully fulfilling your cravings for connection.
Each reading begins with a passage of Scripture, then dives into a woman’s story with detail and depth that illustrates exactly how much she was loved and cared for by God. It ends with an encouragement to apply the day’s lesson in your own life and a personal prayer that gets right to the heart of the matter and the heart of God. Prepare to be inspired and moved closer to the God who gives you strength and courage by spending time with some incredible women in His Word.
