Ohhhhhh Myyyyyyyyy Goshhhhhhhhhh!!!! I could not be more excited to introduce this month’s “feature gal” in Yep, She’s Shiny!!! You are going to literally fall head over heels for this love mission and the precious father and daughter duo behind it! They have taken God’s Word to heart and they are inspiring people all over the country to gather friends, family and neighbors around the table to share their personal stories and love each other well. I had the privilege of visiting with her for the first time a couple of years ago over lunch and still can’t get over the amazing storyline of what they do! So grab a creamy cup of coffee and get ready to be smitten as you learn more about the PRECIOUS AND BEAUTIFUL,
Miss Sarah Harmeyer!
Sarah Harmeyer – Neighbor’s Table Founder | Chief People Gatherer
“There is deep joy in sharing stories.”
Sarah is the Founder and Chief People Gatherer at Neighbor’s Table, a concept born from her personal passion for gathering people, and her desire to get to know her own neighbors. She has personally witnessed how lives are transformed when people gather around the table and share their stories.
Sarah asked her father to build a cedar farmhouse style table big enough to seat 20. They placed it under the oak tree in her backyard in Dallas Texas, dropped chandeliers overhead, and started inviting. Sarah set a goal to serve 500 that year, one dinner party after another. The 500th guest walked up her driveway on Thanksgiving Day! Now five years later, more than 2500 people have celebrated at the original Neighbor’s Table. The power of community that now regularly happens at the original Neighbor’s Table has spurred a desire to launch a movement – a love mission, if you will.
Sarah’s vision is to have tables in backyards across the US, placing them in every state by 2020. Together, Sarah and her father are building more than custom handcrafted tables. They are growing a Neighbor’s Table family nationwide. The heartbeat of this mission lies within her ability to connect with anyone she meets—and her passion to take those initial visits and connect others through their stories.
Outside of gathering at her own table in Dallas, she loves spending her vacation days delivering tables across the country. Sarah’s love for Neighbor’s Table goes alongside her full-time job of stewarding relationships for a nationally recognized children’s hospital. She also travels the country sharing the story of Neighbor’s Table as well as encouraging others to tap into their own God-given passions! Whether it’s at a church, college, luncheon, conference, or even garden club, Sarah shares her story with authenticity, gentle candor, and joy. When she’s not working, Sarah gets weak in the knees for Twizzlers, monogrammed shirts, and a good road trip.
