Journey For Jess

UPDATED: The local newspaper has run an article HERE.

ORIGINAL POST:

In just 3 days a family will be taking an important journey. Two years ago Jason and Amy lost their sweet little 3-year-old girl Jess. She fought against epilepsy for most of her short life. Now, with their older son Noah, they are taking a trip that will use Jason’s talents as a photographer to raise awareness and money for the Epilepsy Foundation and the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. Starting July 10 they will travel to several National Parks around the western United States and take photos. The photos will then be sold to benefit these two groups. This is an important and healing journey for the family. I urge you to check out Journey For Jess as well as their blog (which will be updated as they travel) to see the story thus far and to keep up on their Journey. Also, I ask for your prayers for their safety and health during the trip!

Trying to do my part, I offer in my Etsy shop a pendant dedicated to Jess, and of which $4 goes to Journey for Jess.

Mel,
You're heart is so big, it makes me cry. I can only hope that I can do as much good as you do...
My prayers are with everyone---you included. God can do great things!
