View Bio

Kristin Schell is a popular public speaker and blogger who is especially passionate about the topics of food, faith and hospitality. She would unwittingly spark a worldwide movement when she set up a turquoise picnic table in her front yard as an invitation to her neighbors for fellowship. Her readers have since been inspired to follow suit, setting up turquoise tables in their own front yards. Kristin has authored a book titled The Turquoise Table: Finding Connection and Community in Your Own Front Yard, and travels the country encouraging audiences to open their lives and homes to others. She resides in Austin, Texas, with her husband, Tony, and their four children. Learn more about Kristin at
