Hospitality has always been an important value to Dani and her husband, but since buying a new house she has been more excited about perfecting her home than welcoming others to it. In this post, she comes clean about her perfectionism and reluctance to welcome others, and shares how Jesus’ teachings have opened her heart to a more honest and unselfish hospitality.
