The Living Table: Recipes and Devotions for Everyday Get-Togethers
This practical devotional, hospitality book and cookbook equips the most intimidated hostess.
Hosting doesn't require food that takes all day to prepare. It’s also not about being perfect; it’s about offering care to one another and building community.
What is on your dining room table right now?
Bills, laundry, maybe your kids' soccer cleats? In this fast-paced world, it's easy to start trading our dining tables for sofas and televisions, but what would happen if we started to see the table as the most important piece of furniture in our homes?
Just picture it: No TV. No cell phones. Just your family enjoying one another over a nice meal.
In The Living Table, Abby Turner shares easy-to-recreate recipes and fun, DIY projects that take 15 minutes or less. Each section starts with a first-hand account of the miraculous ways God has showed up at Abby's table-how deep conversations have led to deep spiritual growth, how a new friend has become a forever friend, and how tears and laughs and mishaps have become treasured memories.
With each section focusing on specific tables (dinner table, coffee table, outside table, etc.), you'll discover fast and easy ways to liven up any moment, whether that be Tuesday night home with family or a well-thought-out Thanksgiving. God is asking each of us to open our homes and prepare our tables-this book gives you the ''easy button'' to do just that.
