How to Practice Hospitality as a Family

Most days, the thought of opening our house to people takes a back seat to the task of keeping our house in one piece.  Hospitality?  Like most moms, the thought is almost humorous!   I know it almost seems impossible most of the time, but it doesn’t have to be!!  Today I am honored to be guest posting as a part of Karen Ehman’s study based on her book,  A Life That Says Welcome: Simple Ways to Open Your Heart and Home to Others.  

I would love for you to join me at her site, as I share How to Practice Hospitality as a Family.  I also have a fun giveaway that you will love so I will see you there!

    This is something that makes me sad. I agree with you about the importance of hospitality…we even included a snippet about it in our marriage vows! But, I feel like in today’s society, people are too busy for such things. I am constantly inviting people over, making it as low stress as possible (don’t worry about bringing anything, just let me cook you dinner!) But, people always have other things to do, or even would prefer to eat out than to do the old-fashioned thing of eating at a friend’s house (maybe that’s just my area?) It’s really bothersome to me, and has made me feel super insecure about it…maybe there is something that people just don’t like about me, you know? So now, I feel like I am more hesitant to try because of the fear of rejection. It’s a constant battle, because I do feel hospitality is important, but just not sure how to get there.
