Always in Our Hearts 2017

On February 4, 2017 we held our first live event called Always in Our Hearts. The purpose was to raise awareness for child loss and our ministry, as well as collect donations for our care packages. We were so blessed! We have several storage tubs full of items for our packages now, plus money to purchase books about grieving. If you were able to give, volunteer, or attend, we thank you so much! You're making this ministry happen!
Both of us shared our stories of child loss and hope, which you can also read by clicking on our tabs at the top of the page. We shared lots of things about our ministry, including why we started, what we have accomplished, and our future hopes. Each of these subjects will be expanded upon in other posts.

We were blessed to have April Gibbons with Thrive Life set up to make jar meals. Fifteen jar meals were made by people who attended! These are easy meals that you just have to throw into boiling water for 10-15 minutes. They're very much appreciated in times of difficulty.
We had lots of amazing desserts donated by several people. We didn't have any shortage in dessert. Everyone got to sample several! They were all beautiful and delicious! Thank you to our dessert donaters! We couldn't have done this without you!
Finally, we had a beautiful memorial wall. The hearts are in memory of children lost, and the suns are the hope or encouragement found after the loss. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking to look at.
