My guest on the podcast this week is Kristin Schlle.  Y’all.  She’s kind and welcoming and incredibly generous, not just with her time, but her encouragement too.  I hope you take a listen because she’s also incredibly practical on the topic of hospitality which is the practice of Shalom she’s most passionate about.

You may know Kristin as the “Turquoise Table Lady”, she’s the founder of the Turquoise Table movement. She put a picnic table in her front yard, painted it turquoise, and began inviting neighbors, friends, and even strangers, to hang out and do life together at The Turquoise Table. A new concept of hospitality unfolded in her neighborhood, and before long The Turquoise Table led to a movement of Front Yard People—ordinary people who long to create community right where they live.

A gatherer at heart, Kristin brings people together for delicious food and stories at her table and online home

She also shares with us a recipe for this amazing dish which she says is a crowd-pleaser and what she’d cook my husband and me if we visited her in Austin. I haven’t made it yet, but I am going to the market today so maybe I’ll grab the ingredients for Chicken Marbella:



Shalom Steps:

Every episode, I ask our Shalom Sista to give us 2-5 practical next steps to help empower us if we feel inspired to share in her Shalom Practice.

Here’s Kristin’s:
