Hospitality can be a blessing to both the host and her guests, but for many women today, it simply doesn't happen. Feelings of inadequacy, unrealistic expectations, fear of failure, lack of time--all conspire to steal the joy that comes from opening one's home and sharing fellowship with others. In The Reluctant Entertainer, Sandy Coughlin relates to people in real ways about real meals that mortals cook, during which real conversations draw people together. Would-be hostesses will discover that true hospitality is not about being perfect, cooking a fancy meal, or spending a lot of money. Rather, it's about an open door and an open heart.

Real entertaining for real people -- Joy busters and joy building -- Overcoming the pitfalls of perfectionism -- Simplifying entertaining -- Discovering your inner Martha -- Engaging the five senses -- The heart of hospitality : conversation -- More than dinner parties : deeper connections -- From reluctant to gracious living -- Pantry talk -- Recipes.
