Bringing Home More Than Groceries
Sometimes hospitality is flinging the doors to your home and life wide open for others to enter. Other times it means accepting invitations elsewhere because God has something for you there. Like everything in life, hospitality has seasons. What we do, what we eat, what’s on sale at the grocery, where we go, who comes with us all vary depending on circumstances and seasons – and through it all hospitality is love in action.
In Bringing Home More Than Groceries, you’ll also hear stories of hospitality and community from twenty-one of Kristin’s real-life friends. Come on into the grocery store, in the kitchen, and on the porch where we learn how hospitality heals, nourishes, celebrates, and supports.LEARN MORE

“This gift of a book surprised me with several unexpected forms of hospitality. In expanding my view of what it means to gather, Kristin has nourished my own heart while encouraging me to keep what matters most in my changing season as I forego what doesn’t. Linger in this book’s stories and be encouraged in your own story as you see God’s story throughout.”

She shares stories that remind us hospitality is less about presentation and more about a simple, purposeful invitation into each other’s lives. After reading this book, you’ll want to be more intentional about finding opportunities to practice hospitality right where you are.”

Peace in the Process
In September 2017, I self-published our family’s story in a book called Peace in the Process: How Adoption Built My Faith & My Family. It’s an updated, expanded version of the ebook I self-published in 2014. Available in paperback and Kindle versions, it’s a memoir about how God made me a mom and a story of God’s faithfulness.
This second edition of Peace in the Process includes contributions from other adoptive moms, my children’s birth moms, and resources for families who want to grow through adoption and the people who support them.
Writing Peace in the Process was therapeutic for me. Reliving the hard days wasn’t easy, but it was worth remembering what God has done for us. Peace in the Process is available on Amazon.LEARN MORE

“In Peace in the Process, Kristin Taylor peels back the veneer from her family’s journey through infertility and adoption, uncovering the beautiful truth of God’s faithfulness. Thank you, Kristin, for your courage in sharing your inspiring story!”
– Randall Goodgame, singer/songwriter and founder of Slugs & Bugs Family Music
“Peace in the Process is one woman’s unexpected journey toward motherhood, but more than that, it’s the story of anyone whose life didn’t go according to plan. Kristin Hill Taylor shares a beautiful story of how God made a family – her family – through the beauty of adoption. Reading along, I imagined all of the adoptive families who would be richly blessed by reading these words. Even more, I prayed that this book would fall into the hands of many young women who might be weighing that difficult decision about how to handle an unplanned pregnancy. This book tenderly illustrates how God writes the most beautiful stories out of our deepest heartaches.”
