Jen Schmidt has set out to reframe how we think about hospitality and to equip us to walk a road of welcome in our daily lives. Jen knows that every time we choose open-door living—whether in our homes or by taking hospitality on the road just like Jesus—those we invite in get to experience the lived-out Gospel, our kids grow up in a life-lab of generosity, and we trade insecurity for connection.

Just open the door and I will take it from there
I want things to be perfect and lets face it, they usually aren't. But Just Open the Door is more focused on what you are doing for others by letting them into your home and life than what it's doing for you. We often times are so worried about what other people would think of what we have and don't have to realize what an encouraging and thoughtful thing it is to let someone in. I was so encouraged by the way Jen Schmidt made it seem so easy in every aspect.
She talks about everything from introverts to neighboring. She gives practical tips and ideas and relates everything back to spiritual principles.
I had never even thought of hospitality in this way before. We live in such a socially conscious world.

What Taake didn't like: There wasn't anything about Juxt book that I didn't like. I know that some of you might think, so this is a Christian book and probably not my thing. Listen, it is based on spiritual teachings and for me that was wonderful, but it is not a book that is preachy or overbearing.

Bottom Line: Even if you think, you can't just open your door, this book proves you can. It's okay to let people in. It's okay to make them feel like you want them in your home and your life.

But I've also found that hosting people especially around a full time Just open the door and I will take it from there schedule and long commute frequently creates a cycle of cooking, cleaning, shopping, Forest sex in Kunjingini socializing that can be exhausting even when you treasure every moment spent with friends.
I was feeling especially tired a few weeks ago and prayed that God would roor me and help me have a joyful, generous attitude towards hospitality. Right after praying that, I heard an interview with Jen Schmidt on The Home and Hearth podcast and immediately wanted to read her book.
I couldn't get the book out of my head. So I used my monthly Audible credit on it and started listening. Suffice it to say, God answered my prayer in the "pages" of this book. Pages in quotes since I listed to the audible audio. I was reminded, as I am weekly if not daily, amd how blessed I am to be part of the family of God where even brothers and sisters that might never meet, like Jen Schmidt and myself, can be used of God to encourage each other.
I was reminded of how hospitality can be simultaneously simple and powerful. As a girl whose primarily love language is words of affirmation, this book gave me those words to atke that my still-learning efforts to open doors that aren't even really mine yet are worth it.
