Letters to Women (airing 9:54-10:38am EST) is a letter to the woman apologizing for her home. If a friend asks if she can swing by on short notice, do you spend the short window of time that you have before she arrives cramming papers in the kitchen cabinets, panic vacuuming, yelling at your kids to clean up their piles of stuff? Then, when your friend walks in the door, do you apologize for your home? People don’t come to your home to critique the laundry pile, the dirty dishes, or the undusted baseboards, but to visit with you. Being truly hospitable (not clean, not perfect, not Instagram-worthy) is the antidote to home apologies. Amanda Weeder is the creator of Clare and Colette Home, and is the guest welcomed back for a conversation on hospitality, which is perfect for the upcoming holiday season. If you welcome people into your home with an apology for the mess, this letter is for you. Topics include ehat Amanda calls “Dignity of Home” and how it impacts hospitality; the advice Amanda would give you when it comes to preparing our homes to receive guests well; what does hospitality look like during the event itself; how to receive hospitality this holiday season; the hospitality and friendship Amanda has received in her life; the tip she’d give the woman who’s listening who wants to take the next friendship step and invite someone over; growing in hospitality to our family; and Amanda’s tips for a simple Advent.

Poco a Poco (airing 11:14am-12:11pm EST) is Part 3 of a 4-Part series on King David, who sinned when he wasn’t doing what he was supposed to be doing; when he had pulled back from God’s calling. We have to be careful of comfort and of being distracted, because it leads to a place of being unfaithful. Instead, we have to keep moving forward in God’s will, which can regularly take us to less comfortable places. We’re called to lay down our lives—to endure the crosses of life and get to heaven. It’s not easy, but God’s faithfulness far outweighs our unfaithfulness. Remember, there are certain things the Lord does that he doesn’t take back, like free will. The same is true with anointings. Keep choosing to do what you’re supposed to be doing, and be faithful to the Father who is always faithful to you.
