About the Book

Are you afraid to have people in your home for dinner? Overnight? The Bible tells us to offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.

In the early years of marriage and ministry, hospitality wasn’t Judy’s strongest gift. But over the years, she practiced and became good at hospitality and entertaining. There have been some funny and edifying times around the Russell table. As well as times that were somewhat nerve racking.

This book is full of stories about hospitality and entertaining. Everyone is real. Included are lots of little tips, tricks and recipes to make entertaining more pleasurable and hopefully to erase the fear one may have about extending hospitality.
