Why is it critical that we learn to better connect with our military service members? Our guest today shares first-hand what it means to protect and care for others and why it is so important. Shelly Rood served in the United States Army Reserves for 16 years as an Intelligence Officer and now is a small business owner and ordained minister, advocating for selfless service in action.

Her military awards include the Shield of Sparta and the St. Joan D’Arc. A Distinguished Military Graduate from Western Michigan University, Shelly graduated in May 2022 with her M.A. in Ministry Studies at Moody Theological Seminary.
