From the Back Cover:

It’s not about a spotless house...

Does the word hospitality sometimes sound like just another chore? Something you can’t possibly squeeze into your busy life? Do you ever wonder why you should bother with hospitality at all?

Jo Ann Janssen knows hospitality is not about gourmet food or a gorgeous house--it’s about a warm, open heart that welcomes guests. Like all women today, Jo Ann is busy, but her everyday ideas will help you make your home more hospitable with a minimum of fuss. By sharing ideas that have stood the test of time in her own active household of five, Jo Ann provides a fresh look at the benefits that come from following God’s leading and instruction to show hospitality.

Whether you’re an accomplished hostess or a hesitant hostess, this book is for you. From a 15-minute tea party to a big-party planning guide, Jo Ann’s tips will make entertaining simpler and more rewarding. You’ll find:

  • Easy ways to feed a crowd
  • What to keep in a well-stocked kitchen
  • How to stretch a meal for unexpected company
  • Ideas for all occasions, including kids’ birthday parties, Christmas, and showers
  • How to make overnight guests comfortable
Armed with the ideas in this book, you, too, will be able to relax, smile, and enjoy your company. And you’ll be using one of the resources God has given you--your home--to bring joy and encouragement to others.
