"Morgan does such a beautiful job helping us discover that we are all wired for hospitality and that there is no one way to be hospitable. Her book felt like the enneagram meets the host. I loved discovering more about what type of hospitality personality I have, and Morgan made me feel understood and confident with her practical suggestions to show up, host, and make others feel seen."

"Knowing we should be hospitable and actually being hospitable are two different things. This book shows us that no matter our hospitality personality, people tolerance, or giftedness, we all can open up our lives and homes to others in a way that complements our everyday lives. This is perhaps what I love the most about Morgan's writing. She is able to take a big idea, like hospitality, and apply it to real-life examples, modern schedules, and doable actions. Loaded with practical ideas, this book will inspire you to open the door and open your heart!"
Krista Gilbert, author of Reclaiming Home, speaker, and cohost of The Open Door Sisterhood podcast
"Hospitality is near and dear to my heart. Yet I know that I'm wired differently than others in how I approach opening my home. Extending hospitality doesn't have to fit a particular mold, and Morgan helps us all to understand and embrace our natural differences. We can relax and enjoy opening our homes and do it in a way that fits with our natural strengths. Your Hospitality Personality is filled with practical advice and how-tos for hosting that will make any reader feel more confident in practicing hospitality."
Kristi Clover, author of M.O.M.=Master Organizer of Mayhem and host of the Simply Joyful podcast
"I am always fascinated by looking at different topics through the lens of personality types, and hospitality is no exception! Morgan does a great job of making hospitality feel accessible to everyone, no matter where their individual strengths lie. So often we feel as if hospitality has to look one certain way, but Morgan proves that hospitality can have many faces and that nearly everyone can find a way to incorporate it into their lives!"
Abby Lawson, author and creator at Just a Girl and Her Blog and Abby Organizes
"As someone who claims a multi-hospitality personality, I was motivated to fully embrace who I am in terms of hospitality by Morgan Tyree's gentle enlightenment, encouragement, and practical tips. No longer do I get overwhelmed by trying and doing and being all things; instead, I'm a more relaxed and enjoyable host because of this book. I recommend The Hospitality Personality for the person who wants to open up their life, just as it is, and connect more deeply with others."
Kristin Funston, speaker and author of More for Mom: Living Your Whole and Holy Life
"This book is an open-door invitation on how to naturally connect with others. Morgan reminds us that hospitality isn't reserved for dinner parties. It can look like meeting friends for coffee or bringing someone a meal. I love how Morgan identifies four unique hospitality styles and offers suggestions and examples throughout the book of how to use our unique gifts to serve others. It was such an easy read that I felt as though I was having a conversation with a girlfriend!"
Laurie Palau, founder of Simply B Organized, host of the weekly podcast This ORGANIZED Life, and author of Hot Mess: A Practical Guide to Getting Organized
"In a world where taking the time to show hospitality seems like a lost art, Morgan reminds us what is truly important--connection with other people. This book hits right at the heart and teaches you to host without fear and with confidence, no matter what the occasion!"
