Rebekah just launched an online course focused on helping new moms with “everyday hospitality”
**COURSE DETAILS AND DISCOUNT CODE BELOW**
We got started very late. 11:00pm…because we had a hard time getting both boys to sleep!
Ryan took Liam out to Trader Joe’s for groceries and the cashier gave him some candy (She asked first, which was awesome!) and the sugar rush added a couple hours to the bedtime routine. Bummer.
Finally after Liam did fall asleep, Ryan came into the living room and Ari our 10-month-old decided he did not want to go to sleep. So we decided to go with it, watched some TV shows, and made some pop-corn.
But the big topic of this episode is the LAUNCH of Rebekah’s brand new online course, YOUR GENEROUS HOME.
This project is several months in the making. Bekah has been putting this together for the past 6 months.
YOUR GENEROUS HOME can be found at www.yourgeneroushome.com
Your Generous Home is a course that teaches "Everyday Hospitality" for busy moms with limited time, space and resources. Rebekah started this course for moms like her who want their homes to be a generous and welcoming place for family and friends without going crazy in the process
The course is a video course about what Hospitality is. How we think about it and approach it (Perfection, expectations, and performance).
Rebekah has taught and spoken around the world to many different groups of people, but this is the first time she has done a video course.
The course dives into issues like, the things that are stopping you, and practical lessons like having dinner guests with children in the house. Rebekah breaks down the tasks in the course to make it easier for moms to get things done without having a melt down.
Checklists are provided to help you think through what needs to be done before, during and after guests come over.
Self assessment test: Questions about your specific stage in life to evaluate where you are at as an individual to give you a better picture of what your capacity is and what you are capable of in the moment.
Ryan asks some interview questions…it gets awkward for just a minute…
Ryan asks why this subject matter. Why everyday hospitality?
Rebekah: At the core…we all want to connect. As a young mom it’s harder to get out of the house and build connections and the easiest solution is to make your home the place that people come to.
We live in a 1-bedroom apartment, so we are very limited on space. We have also lived in a variety of situations and spaces where we have had to be creative with how we bring people into our home. Rebekah is no stranger to this and developed a sense of “Creative Hospitality” and learned to use what she had to make connections with people over food, coffee, or tea. Each place gives new ideas. Mainly, it’s all about your heart of generosity. This resonates with people who come to visit.
Ryan asks how this works while having kids:
Rebekah: It’s more complex. Things do take longer. More planning.
Even though we live in a 1-bedroom, we have not let that stop us from having people stay with us. Family and friends…including a guest who stayed with us for 6 weeks.
Rebekah begin to realize that people would be surprised and what she would take on. Which is part of what drove her to create a course to show how limitations are not disqualifies, but opportunities to get creative.
Focus on what you DO HAVE not on what you DON’T HAVE. Hospitality is one the ways you can foster community and connection and battle against lonliness. As a mother, you can make a difference in the world through fostering connection through hospitality. It’s so accessible to everybody!
Ryan asks what the most surprising thing for Rebekah in the process of putting this course together.
Rebekah talks about how self-disqualification was a major struggle, because of the amazing people she has around her who are also doing such a great job. But on the other hand, when looking at the material and the potential, it makes her very excited.
Ryan: What are the next steps for the course?
Rebekah: This is the first part. Next we are going to build out additional audio lessons that are focused on specific areas of interest (issues, problems, topics).
