The Cultivating Jewels Podcast Episode 001 Show Notes

Rebekah Hargraves is a wife, homeschooling mama of two littles, blogger, podcaster, and author whose passion is to edify, equip, and encourage women in their journey of biblical womanhood, particularly with an emphasis on the gospel and its implications for everyday life. Rebekah’s first book Lies Moms Believe (And How the Gospel Refutes Them) released the fall of 2017, and the Lies Moms Believe the Companion Bible Study came out the following spring. Since then, Rebekah has written Advent and Lent devotional studies for women, co-authored a book on walking by the Spirit and living the Spirit-filled life, and most recently co-authored a book on friendship. When she isn’t busy homeschooling, writing, or podcasting, you can find her with her nose buried in a book, drinking copious amounts of tea and coffee, and listening to Celtic music. You can reach out to Rebekah on her website Hargraves Home and Hearth, on Instagram @rebekahhargraves, or on iTunes via The Home and Hearth podcast. She would love to hear from you!

The ripple effect of blessing people through hospitality.

The ability to simplify hospitality and the truth that we can practice it no matter where we are in life.

Praying for a heart of hospitality.

Quotes from our Chat:

“Our God is a God of initiation. From Old Testament to New Testament He is constantly initiating relationship with people.”

“There is a ripple effect in being able to bless people through hospitality.”

“We can make it too hard. It’s as simple as inviting a neighbor over to dinner, the whole purpose is loving people.”

“God did not say ‘go and be Martha Stewart to the people you know and love’. We are to love the STRANGER”.

“The Triune God is relational and we are created in His image.”

“I think we have our ideas of what hospitality is but when you study Scripture – it is then that you understand a better picture of what hospitality actually is. That we are to be loving strangers.”

“We need to pray for a heart of hospitality, because it is so easy to make excuses.”
