A Great Hospitality Book...

I love reading books on the topic of hospitality. Probably because I LOVE providing hospitality. However, I will admit that sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying to impress that I tend to forget the Biblical reason for why I'm to show hospitality.

That's where this book comes in. This book has both convicted me and inspired me greatly! This book offers some wonderful tips on offering hospitality from a Biblical perspective.

I've included some of the chapter titles just so you can get a taste of what this book is about:

Family First
Cleaning and Clutter, Dustballs and Dirt
The Myth of the Too Small House
Decorating on a Shoestring
Sure, Stay for Supper!
Hospitality on the Road
And more!

I'm definitely not getting paid for this little advertisement, but I know a good book when I read one! And I definitely think this is an excellent book to provide a well-rounded approach to Biblical hospitality. I've definitely been motivated, and I think that it can be a big help to other Christian women out there. That's why I'm sharing it!

Here's an excerpt from the back cover of the book: "A Life That Says Welcome helps you make others feel refreshed, rather than impressed, in your presence." Sigh. That's what I want. I want my presence to make others comfortable and refreshed.

Amber, I love reading about hospitality, especially from a Biblical perspective. As a pastor's wife I have a lot of people in my home each week and it's always good for me to recenter and make sure I'm doing things for the right reasons. Even if I don't win the drawing, I will probably buy the book! Thanks for doing the drawing!
