Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointed  Jul 3, 2007
I was immediately disappointed in this book when I unwrapped it because of its small size and flimsy cover. It has an appealing picture on the cover, but I don't think it fulfilled its promise of "simple steps to cultivating a welcoming heart". Thea Jarvis talks about her dead grandmother's website, her famous decorater cousin, Chris Madden,Fr. Mychal Judge who died in the 911 attack, but I'm not really sure what they have to teach me about hospitality. I sensed I was reading a long, long, long article in a women's magazine that had been padded out to fill a word count.

So far my favorite book on hospitality is The Rule of Benedict for Beginners.

An Accessible Virtue  Apr 27, 2007
Thea Jarvis is a mom, grandmother, and professional writer known widely for her family life column carried by more than a dozen diocesan newspapers. In her latest book, Jarvis addresses hospitality through scriptural references and stories and quotations from the likes of Henri Nouwen, Mother Teresa, and Fred ("Mr.") Rogers. At the same time, she shares an impressive array of examples of hospitality practiced by her family and friends over the years.

The book is organized in four story-filled chapters: a definition of hospitality, common everyday practices, growing in hospitality, and hospitality as part of the Catholic tradition. In "growing in hospitality," Jarvis lays out a plan with real-life examples for each of its five steps: (1) cultivate a hospitable heart, (2) emulate hospitality in others, (3) embrace the hospitable moment, (4) enjoy solitude, (5) seek the grace of hospitality. Each chapter closes with a short summarizing reflection, as, "Hospitality is an accessible virtue, meant to be studied and practiced in the school of real people and everyday events."

These elements and the straightforward style make Every Day Hospitality an ideal resource for individuals, families, and small groups.
