It’s episode 84 and my guest is Jen Schmidt. I have been a long time reader of Jen’s blog, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam. I also recently enjoyed reading her book, Just Open the Door about Biblical Hospitality. I knew I had to have her on the show! Jen is a wife, mom to 5, blogger, writer, and speaker; On her blog, she shares all about beauty, home, and finances. She feels that home is a place to embrace both the Beauty and Bedlam or the everyday. I was very inspired from our conversation and enjoyed asking questions about Biblical hospitality.

Their desire is to encourage kids, equip parents, and empower families who struggle with a variety of concerns from anxiety, attachment issues, behavioral and attention struggles, and possibly even trauma. Children enjoy a variety of fun, age-appropriate activities that integrate principles of cognitive developmental therapy with behavioral,emotional, and sensory interventions. The program is driven by the power of the gospel and extensive research, offering a bridge from frustration to hope.
