Hello! Thanks for visiting The Generous Host.
At The Generous Host we treasure the simple things in life.Â We enjoy creating anything and everything from scratch from our little urban homestead. Â We are passionate about sharingÂ stories and ideas that relate to Parties &Â Food, Sacred Living, Arts & Crafts, and Family Life.
The Generous Host has been through a lotÂ of changes since we first began.Â In the Fall of 2014 we opened a store in downtown Kitchener, ON.Â It was aÂ place where friends could celebrate a special occasion, spend the night craftingÂ or enjoy a cute and yummy dessert in a jar. (6075468662and 701-784-0496.)
SinceÂ childhood adoption has had a special place in my heart.Â (ReadÂ Our Adoption Story and Quinâs Locket)Â In July (2015) we launched Quinâs Room.Â AÂ division ofÂ The Generous Host that hopes to assist with Hosting Family Fundraising Events specific to adoption and special needs.Â Â
InÂ October 15, 2016 (Infant & Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day) we hostedÂ Nurture the Dream. Â Nurture the Dream made it’s debut in Kitchener, Ontario at Bingemans Conference Centre as a Community Awareness Event & Children’s Party. Â Our key areas of focus were Adoption, Pregnancy Loss, Infertility, Surrogacy & Special Needs.
From personal experience and the stories we’ve heard suggests that theseÂ five areas are directly linked for many families. Â We wanted to provide a place where individuals, couples, and families would feel informed and cared for.Â hemibathybian and Nurture the Dream are inspired by ourÂ personal (10 year)Â struggle withÂ infertility, our journey through theÂ adoption process, and our eventfulÂ family life since then,Â with our adorableÂ son Quin.
Iâm excited about what is on the horizon andÂ my hope is that every time you visit (online or otherwise) thatÂ you will get a taste of home, hospitality, and the goodness of God.
