I love hearing the wisdom and practical tips Rachel has. God used her to challenge my heart and mind and it was so refreshing.
Rachel excellently addresses the home with a gospel perspective that delivers encouragement to all women!
So much practical and theological encouragement towards hospitality packed in this course. Totally worth $35!
I love Rachel. Her friendly wisdom and exhortation in Christ is the kind of thing that I need in a godly Christian best friend. It’s who I want to be to others. I so appreciate that she takes the time to help us through this medium and means for His glory!
It was lovely to hear someone speak honestly about the beauty, the challenge and the glory of doing hospitality from a Christ-centred, Biblical worldview. The slogan, "All of Christ for all of live", has gained a very practical foothold in my heart. Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your wisdom.
I have difficulty watching live webinars. Being able to listen to this content and really chew on it at my own pace has been a wonderful blessing. When I have been able to catch up on the recordings the Spirit has used them to encourage, challenge, and grow me in ways I didn't imagine. His timing has been perfect.
I truly enjoyed this and the messages have impacted my thinking and actions about hosting. Well done!
