blissdom 2013 is just around the corner! it was 4 years ago that i was surprisingly blessed with 2 fantastic roommates: kristi and edie. i didn’t know either of them before going to the conference, and was so freaked out by being outside of my comfort zone. but both of these women were so warm and welcoming that they eased my fears and blessed my time at blissdom.
putting others at ease is edie’s gift. she loves on people and welcomes them into her life.
and if you don’t have the pleasure of meeting edie in real life, you must meet her through her blog!
her home is a feast for the eyes: all that color! she has a knack for blending unexpected items, and making them work! i could spend so much time pouring over all the pictures of her home. actually, i did! edie’s home was recently featured in better homes and gardens!
a couple years ago, edie’s home was burnt to the ground. she blogged through the process of grieving and rebuilding. and she did it gracefully. she designed her new home with the purpose of serving others in mind.
edie has just released her ebook, 31 days to a heart of hospitality!
she includes all the fun stuff: the recipes and tips, but what she starts with is even bigger. she starts with the heart. there’s no fluff, she goes straight to our real barriers with hospitality: us. our selfishness gets in the way of our ability to welcome others into our lives. and being hospitable doesn’t just mean to our neighbors, but starts in our home, with our kids, with our husbands.
i am not quite through the book yet, but it is so good, you guys! i am looking forward to finishing it up this week, and putting into practice what i’m learning!
get your own copy of edie’s ebook here for only $5!
and sweet edie has offered up 3 copies of her ebook for me to give to you!
