    Absolutely! We love to have guests. We go through all of the same things you described and it's worth every bit of the effort. 🙂

    Amen! Well said! Great for your kids to see your hospitable heart and learn what a blessing it is to have a home where guests feel welcome and comfortable!

    As missionaries, I truly believe hospitality is part of the gifting you 'take on', or, shall I say, that God forms in you! Little did I know that as we began so many years ago! Christian, our youngest, gives up his room for guests…and we have them continuously. We have talked with Christian about the great sacrifice he makes in giving up his room, and what God says about that, and like you mentioned, the 3 of our children are learning to be gracious hosts, learning to serve, learning to make guests feel comfortable. We regularly receive ppl literally from around the world, ppl we don't know. The most recent has been the dear Cretzman family – whom had the tragic accident with their precious daughter. What a joy it has been. Our family challenge is this: Luke 6:38…Really love this post, Julie! May God prick our hearts continually to be givers as moms and dads…our children are the ones who will be onlooking, learning, observing, and our prayer is….that they be much more than we ever were! Blessings to you and your sweet family!
