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.
