On "Philoxenia": Hospitality and Welcoming the Stranger
After the isolation of the last two years, it seems like a good time to brush up on the subject of "hospitality"! But welcoming people in goes beyond the fun of planning and an eye for detail. This week, Michelle and Lindsay explore the virtue of true hospitality through the lense of "philoxenia", a Greek concept that encourages care of and service to neighbour and stranger alike... and how it's deep roots can find their way into our own homes and families.
The Wonderful World of Comfort Creators
It’s a big world out there. But it’s also a big world in here… in our phones, in our computers and laptops, and we access and connect to so much through social media and the internet!

This week, Michelle and Lindsay wax poetic about a corner of the internet that IS wonderful and it is on the rise: the world of comfort creators!

Sick but feeling Wonderful.
Whenever I am sick the house feels like a bad camping trip.There are clothes everywhere, the food is from cans, and no one really has a good time. I had a friend that recommended this podcast to me a while ago and I started to play it when I was climbing mount laundry. I am so so glad I did. For the last year it has been a life goal for me to start loving domesticity, especially since i am now homeschooling, and this podcast brought some dry thoughts and in-the-dark efforts to real life. I am feeling so great even tho I am so sick, and the house is a joy to be in. Its so wonderful to hear the encouragement and wisdom that you ladies give in every podcast. God Bless!
