White Chocolate Peppermint Bark Ice Cream Cake

Friends, we practice hospitality because it shows our appreciation, and an overflowing sense of gratitude for others. It’s even sweeter when dessert rolls around, and this Peppermint Ice Cream Cake is pulled out of the freezer—a delicious way to end the night!

Opening our home means that we extend ourselves, our time, our budget (it can cost a little extra to cook for others!), listening, empathizing, and loving the people that we invite in.

What warms my heart the most is when we gather with friends, and our kids are around the table. When they engage in the conversation, which sometimes goes deep, they’re learning all about grace, from a more unusual perspective. I say unusual, because I think it’s less the norm now to open our homes.

Hospitality just isn’t something that comes naturally to people anymore, so it seems.

But those times that it is, and our guests feel at home, and our kids keep learning about hospitality, it’s like that first bite of a rich dessert … it tastes so good.
