My guest for The Happy Hour # 195 is Amy Hannon. Amy is the owner of Euna Mae's, a kitchen boutique that is not only is a special place to locals, but has also become a destination shop for many around the country. You can also find Amy on her cooking show on Northwest Arkansas' NBC affiliate, a food blog, and her recently published “Love Welcome Serve” cookbook.

I know many of you are familiar with Amy's super cute shop Euna Mae's – and don't worry if you thought her name was Euna Mae (she gets that a lot)! Amy and I begin today's show talking about the bittersweet emotions that come when your kids begin to leave the nest. Amy is momma to three and she shares about her youngest graduating just this past weekend!

We then talk about what hospitality means to her. Amy has never met a stranger and and that “hospitality is making people feel like they matter” – I love the way she describes that. Amy and I also discuss how in our culture we can get the meaning of hospitality wrong and shift the focus inward instead of serving others from the heart.

In the last part of the show, Amy shares how she never intended to be a shop owner, cooking show host, or write a cookbook. But, when she asked herself what her God dream was, God answered her prayer in big ways!

I had so much fun talking with Amy today. She shows that we all can show hospitality to anyone and everyone, and her story is an encouragement to ask ourselves what our dreams are and not be afraid to go to God with those dreams.

{You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends. Just use the FB & Twitter links at the end of this post!}
