Broken Hearts Open Doors: The Art of Welcoming Others
Ever suffered from a broken heart, felt like you were a stranger in your own home or business, or experienced being an outsider in school or at work? In this heartwarming account you will learn about one father and son’s discovery of healing broken hearts. Tom captures the incredible journey of his thirteen year old son and himself as they realize they have become outsiders to each other and to their congregation, and must rediscover themselves as dad and son by recognizing each other’s otherness while sitting six and one-half inches apart, eight to ten hours a day for fourteen days, welcomed into strangers and friends lives, while covering over 4,000 crisscrossing miles from Texas to the Eastern Seaboard and back. You will laugh at the hilarious distance between middle age and middle school while being inspired at their amazing field trip into the fascinating life changing stories they encounter along the road of hospitality.
Welcome to a story encouraging you to create positive relationships and a love that heals.
