just open the door (summer study announcement)

love this sweet reminder (c/o Jen Schmidt)

There are no coincidences in God's kingdom, and I felt all the more certain of that fact when my blogging friend Jen from Balancing Beauty and Bedlam kindly sent me a copy of her new book and study released this month called Just Open the Door(*affiliate link profit from this post goes to missions).

It seems the Lord has been pulling on my heartstrings over the last several months to increasingly offer up my home and table as a way to love others and tell people of His wonderful invitation for them, and then these books with this very message show up in my mailbox. Chance? I think not. :)

I've only scanned a few pages and already, I'm seeing the truth and love of the Gospel!

And I love how she dives deeper into why hospitality is so difficult:

The Bible study takes you into the Scriptures yourself, and the book has even more of Jen's own story and practical tips for hospitality:

I want my vision of hospitality transformed through the Scriptures. It is such an important part of Biblical homemaking, and I want to be better at showing His love using what He's given me. :) I am going to be doing this 7-week study on my own from May 9- June 27 and posting my thoughts each week here on the blog and Facebook if you want to study it along with me!! :)

I also have some exciting giveaways for you coming up in the next couple weeks as we round the corner into summer- the perfect season for being hospitable and sitting down to a meal around the table (that's a hint, by the way!)!! :)

Here is the link to the Just Open the Door Bible study book I'll be sharing about here on the blog in two weeks! I hope you'll join me as we learn how to use our homes to proclaim the wonderful news of our redeeming Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! :)
