our story.

hi friend, i'm jenna.

I'm a Florida girl longing for a Nashville world, Wife, Mama of four {two here to hold & two we long to see again in Heaven}, Content Creator & Founder of The Color Blue & Hope & on a mission to spread God's Hope, Love & Joy to women who are grieving the loss of their baby and women who are fighting for their baby while on bed rest. Here you'll find all the pieces that make me, me. A little of my family, my grief journey, my work-life, our home & all things color blue. I'm a lover of coffee, laughing & embracing the chaos. This life is messy & loud, but it's all about grace.

 In 2014, my world came crashing down as I was placed on bed rest four hours away from my family to fight for our twins, Grady and Ryder. We fought hard. Jesus fought hard and even though our outcome wasn't exactly what my heart hoped for, I can honestly testify that He still fights for me daily. Our boys were born prematurely while I was five months pregnant. Ryder was born sleeping & Grady lived for three hours and while they are in Heaven, I have found that their story still continues on. It begins with the color blue and it ends with hope. A hope only God can provide through His gift of love & joy in mourning.

 

While missing our boys hurts me to my core, I can assure you living life after loss has become more about being intentional and living life to its complete fullness. My hope in sharing our story is to remind other sweet mothers they are not alone and we're fighting for them, praying over them and loving them from afar. 

 

Through our bed rest and grief journey, I've learned there’s a need in our hospitals and community that is lacking; Support for mothers on bed rest and comfort for the ones grieving the loss of her infant. 

 

Enter Boxes of Hope, Love & Joy that are designed to encourage, care and love on mothers in whatever season they find themselves in.

On the blog you'll read excerpts of our story and just like the Big Daddy Weave song, you'll find life but it isn't mine. God's story is the one to be told. I'm just the one sharing it. You'll also find stories about a day in the life of The Dails, and all about finding the blessings among the chaotic mess, that is an Officer, a working mama, two loud children and one crazy pup.

 

PS. If you are a mother on bed rest or share the same broken heart as mine, journeying life after loss, hear me when I say, you matter, especially in this. I know the battle and/or grief can leave you feeling unworthy, unable and misunderstood, but I hear you and I'm praying over your tired and aching heart. Please do not hesitate to connect with me. We all have a story to be told, and I'm longing to hear yours. Sending love from one Mama to Another.

why 'the color blue'?

The color blue is the boys. G & R are boys and when I see blue, I see them. We weren't supposed to find out their gender and to my surprise the day of our laser surgery, the day everything changed, our ultrasound tech said, "Well, he's definitely a boy!" My heart began racing and I yelled, "You weren't supposed to say that!"

A couple days after they were born, two friends came to visit and gifted me two bracelets. On the bracelets were Sapphire stones. They asked me if I knew why they chose those and I said, "Because they are blue," and then they reminded me Sapphire was their birthstone. Ever since that moment, the color blue stuck. Blue was our boys, our boys were blue.

a day in the life.
