Publisher's Summary

A simple way to connect your neighborhood and your community and build friendships.
Are you consumed with a busy life but unsure how to slow down? Do you desire connection within your community and think, Absolutely, but I don't have time for that or I can't create that? What if there was another way through it all, a way to find those moments of peace and to create a time for honest, comfortable connection? What if meeting neighbors and connecting with friends was as simple as showing up and being available?
Desperate for a way to slow down and connect, Kristin Schell put an ordinary picnic table in her front yard, painted it turquoise, and began inviting friends and neighbors to join her. Life changed in her community, and it can change in yours, too. Alongside personal and heartwarming stories, Kristin gives you:

Stress-free ideas for kick-starting your own Turquoise Table
Simple recipes to take outside and share with others
Stories from people using Turquoise Tables in their neighborhoods
Encouragement to overcome barriers that keep you from connecting
New ways to view hospitality

Today, Turquoise Tables are inviting individuals to connect with each other in nearly all 50 states and seven countries. Ordinary people like you wanting to make a difference right where they live.
Community and friendship are waiting just outside your front door.

Meet your neighbors like the old days

This reminds me of my childhood! I knew every kid in my neighborhood. I would like to help create a sense of community right where I am. I would truly like to connect with others right where I am. Also the art of hospitality doesn’t have to be expensive, stressful or hard!

An Amazing Read of Love, Faith, Community

I love that this is an idea that span not just your immediate neighborhood, but the community at large. I have been thinking for sometime about ways to get myself and others together on a regular basis to share our stories, joys or pains. This book gave me the courage to go forward with my idea of putting a bench in my Church yard, as I live in an association development, where people can sit and talk after worship or whenever the want.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

What did you like most about The Turquoise Table?

I think the generosity of the author, and the confidence she installs through her own example.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author! She had generosity of spirit, a desire to not just be blessed but to bless others with what seems a simple thing but became so much more.

What does Ginny Welsh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Reality... it was like I was sitting at the real turquoise table and hearing the story from the author over long cups of coffee in all seasons.

Any additional comments?

Loved it. Honestly inspirational.
