Hospitality of the Heart examines how true hospitality extends beyond furnishing your guest with food and drink. It involves making them truly at home, comfortable with their surroundings and meeting their needs--both the stated and the unstated. True hospitality doesn't criticize, condone, or cut short. We share our souls and our stories and are no longer strangers. It offers us the gift of another's presence. We weep and laugh together, holding hands and touching souls. True hospitality of the heart is not about impressing someone, but rather about caring for someone. This little book will change your life as well as those around you.
