FoC 035: The Sacramental Table: Food, Hospitality, and God’s Love with Emily Stimpson



Today we’re happy to have Emily Stimpson on the show. Emily is a renowned Catholic writer, speaker, and author who has recently begun sharing her wonderful recipes, hospitality tips, and home decor ideas on her new blog, The Catholic Table. We thought she’d be the perfect guest to discuss the importance of food as a sign and symbol of God’s love and it’s inherent connection to the Eucharist.

We also have a great time talking about hospitality; why it matters and why we should make it a priority in supporting the community around us. Emily talks about her 100 year old home and how she’s discovered her own style and why bringing beauty to your home is a spiritual practice.

We have a lovely conversation that’s perfect for this time of year when we think of hosting, cooking, and taking time to treasure our loved ones, we hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hi guys! Like the podcast a lot, however, Haley often talks over Christy and it is really distracting.

    Maybe turn the volume up on your computer Haley!!
