Sometimes we think we have to travel to another country to help people in poverty. But we forget there are different kinds of poverty. In this country, loneliness and isolation have become official epidemics.
Mother Teresa said it best, “Loneliness is the Leprosy of the West.”

- Invite two couples to your home and grab this free resource called 10 One Pot Meals Perfect for Gatherings. I’ve made a list of super easy meals to pull together when you have people coming over! Don’t worry about entertaining, simple is best when it comes to making people feel comfortable in your home!
