Virutal Author Event with Sarah Jackson

Join Sarah Jackson on Tuesday, July 14th at 7pm for a virtual event for her new book The House That Love Built, written with Scott Sawyer. Please email events@bookbardenver.com to RSVP, and you will be sent a Zoom link ahead of the event.

About the Book: “The House That Love Built: Why I Opened My Door To Immigrants and How We Found Hope Beyond a Broken System” is the quintessential story of one woman's questioning what it means to be an American--and a Christian--in light of a broken immigration system. Through tender stories of opening her heart and home to immigrants, Sarah Jackson shines a holy light on loving our neighbor.

About the Author: When Sarah Jackson visited the US/Mexico border in 2012, it changed the course of her life. She spent time with people who’d been deported, listened to their stories, and learned about their reasons for migrating and the dangers they’d faced. She also witnessed families being separated. 

Her own family is super close—the kind of tight-knit family that looks forward to every minute together. They also believe in treating others compassionately. So, when Sarah saw families being torn apart, she couldn’t look away. She returned to Colorado, but there was no going back to normal. 

Back home, Sarah took stock of her resources: a one bedroom apartment, a love for volleyball, and a belief that families belonged together. It wasn’t much but it was enough. She began hosting families separated by immigrant detention and launched Volleyball Internacional, a volleyball league that donates 100% of its profits to pay for operating expenses of the hospitality home. She’s been hosting and helping to reunite families ever since.

If you ask Sarah how she does it, she’ll laugh and say it’s not rocket science. For the thousands of people whose isolation has been eased by the Casa de Paz community, it’s something even better. It’s love.
