Madison lost both of her parents. She is an amazing example to me of strength and perseverance. Her words are heart wrenching. She is so supportive of our business, and we love that we could make a necklace that has so much meaning to her.
“When my mom died in a car accident in 2017 I went to a dark place. I had been through this already when my dad died of a stroke in 2010 but this time my faith was faltering and I was flat out furious with God for doing this to me again. I was also pregnant with my third child so hormones made grief even uglier. I couldn’t pray, when I would kneel and open my mouth I only wanted to scream. Instead of praying, the best I could do was sing, alone in my car, “Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders. Let me walk upon the water, wherever you would call me.” Anytime I was alone that song was playing and I was ugly cry singing with everything I had. Since then I have been looking for something to give me strength in the ongoing journey with my grief and when I saw this necklace firstname.lastname@example.org I knew that was it. I opened that little box and was right there again, alone in my car singing “Oceans” by Hillsong United. The memories are still dark for me but I can feel the light starting to filter back in.” 🌥
