Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.
galatians 6:9

Melissa + Jessica

Jessica + Melissa are best friends and cousin-in-laws! For years they dreamed of opening a business together but nothing ever came of their dreams until they both walked through loss. The Lord inspired them to find purpose through their tragedies by creating items that comfort those who mourn and point to the One who sustains us in the valley of the shadow of death.

Melissa lost her daughter, Audrey Lynn, at 24 weeks gestation. Audrey was born on February 13th, 2014 and passed away on Valentine’s Day. Melissa now has a son named Asher, who was born on May 1, 2015.

Jessica lost her first baby to miscarriage on November 15th, 2015. Ten months later she lost her second baby girl to miscarriage on September 2nd, 2016. Jessica now has a daughter named Ella, who was born on August 30th, 2018.

Carried + Loved Collective’s Mission

Through our own experiences of loss we feel compelled to help carry others' burdens as they walk through their own seasons of grief, loss, and illness.

Often times during tragedy, words feel so insignificant. We all long to be that friend that steps into a loved one’s grief and knows exactly what to say, but oftentimes there are no words. Although there is often nothing we can do to fix a tragic situation, we can offer support to make the journey of a grieving friend just a little bit easier.

As a result of their own losses, Jessica + Melissa felt inspired to create bereavement gifts that can be sent to comfort a grieving friend. It’s just like sending flowers, but the gift is more intentional and will last for a lifetime and point back to the One who sustains us in the valley of the shadow of death— Jesus!
