31 Days of Hospitality: Day 1


I am joining The Nester this year for the 31 Days series.  A challenge to write a post a day for the month of October on the same topic.  Definitely a challenge, right?  I had a list of things I considered writing about but finally decided on 'hospitality'.

As the month goes on I'll write about different aspects of hospitality from making your entry way a welcoming area, to weekend guests, to party planning, to teaching your children the art of hospitality and more.  I am by no means an expert at hospitality but I might be by the end of the month!

While researching hospitality I came across quite a few different definitions of the word.  I'll leave you with a couple that I liked:
  • the friendly reception and treatment of guest or strangers.
  • generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests.
I hope you'll check back each day for more on hospitality. 
How do you define hospitality?

Definitely a neat idea to focus on 31 days of hospitality. God has taught me so much about that over the years. I'll be popping in to learn more with you.

I need some hospitality tips! It is a lost art and I'm trying to reach out to neighbors in a new neighborhood. I'm doing 31 days of autumn inspiration if you want to check it out ;).
