I lean toward minimalism, but didn't want the stark, unwelcoming atmosphere that total minimalism can create. This book is the perfect balance! My favorite part is that the focus is on people and not things. A wonderful, practical guide on how to create a cozy, minimalist home! Thank you Myquillyn!!

For many of us women, inviting people into our lives and homes feels like inviting judgement of our entertaining skills and stress on our already maxed-out schedules. But what if you knew that opening your front door was a simple and radical way to change the world? Jen Schmidt is determined to prove it to you. She has set out to reframe how we think about hospitality and to encourage us to walk a road of welcome in our everyday lives. She aims to shatter the image of model homes and model lives, replacing it with relatable, everyday invitations.

I love the heart of this book. Down to earth, relatable, yet it challenged me to go farther. that's what I like and need, and that's why I read books - to grow as a person. This book pushes me, but gives me the tools I need. I enjoyed it very much, and now I have all kinds of ideas I want to try.
The narration was not my favorite. A little too much inflection for a self-help book in my opinion. It was distracting at first, but it got easier to listen to.
