About the Book
Jessica Rood lives in Chicago with her husband John. She graduated from Moody Bible Institute and desires to incorporate her love for hospitality, photography, and children by opening up a community center to provide a place for youth to participate in creative workshops, such as photography, theater, and music. It is her desire to practice hospitality by giving the youth in her community a sense of family and to be a voice in their lives to encourage them to step into their creative passions. She wants this community center to be embodied by the love and hospitality we receive from Jesus. He came to dwell with us, suffered and served us, and has offered us a place at His table. Jessica desires to offer a seat at her table for children who believe there is no seat for them at all and point them to the hope and love they can find only in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
