HIGHLY recommend this podcast!
You guys, I highly recommend that you download this podcast and that you make it a point to listen to each episode starting from the first episode. Prior to listening to the podcast, I did go out and purchase the book... I just could not get enough of the book – it’s a very easy read, filled with loving inspiration, recipes, and very encouraging! Kristin Schell has a heart for the Lord, and this is truly her calling! (ministry and hospitality).
I love hearing how simple Kristen and her guests make building community. I have been able to implement some of her ideas and already feel very comfortable in my new neighborhood with the connections we have made by spending time in our front yard.
