MEET JORDAN

I'm a national bestselling author (still feels weird to say!), keynote speaker, podcaster, and educator. In college, I started a small Etsy shop and blog from the storage closet in my sorority house. Fancy, I know. A few years later, that small Etsy shop grew into an internationally recognized sweatshirt brand & that dinky little blog led to bestselling books and publishing career. Now, I'm obsessed about helping other women pave their own path and work from home in their pajamas, too.

    Jordan, I am so sorry for your loss. We lost our third baby at 2 months on November 8th, I thought it would be my undoing, but God has been my comforter and is healing my heart day by day. Cling to Him. He is our refuge. Praying for you.

  2. Channon says:

    Thank you for sharing. I’m thankful someone spoke out about this. Losing my baby is the hardest thing I’ve ever been through.
    But she’s perfect in heaven with Jesus. He’s raising my child 💙 the quote was beautiful! Thank you again! I’m praying for you and your husband! 💙

  3. Blakney Verkamp says:

    Jordan thank you so incredibly much for sharing your story. I have lost 3 babies and have gone through this tragedy really struggling. I haven’t shared much of my stories with anyone because I’m embarrassed and don’t want to hinder other people with what I continue to grieve for. Your story shows me that mine is important and that my babies should be celebrated. Thank you again for telling your intimate story. Praying for you and other mothers who have gone through the loss of children and infertility.

    Jordan,

    Thank you for allowing us into your journey. My heart breaks with you and the pain you’ve been walking through these past weeks. I wish I could do or say something that would make everything better, but healing is a process. Thank you for your vulnerability and courage. You are a precious and loved member of the Body of Christ. I’ve been regularly praying for you and Matt and will continue to do so, especially in this next season of healing and adjusting.

    Big hugs to you, sister ❤️

    I absolutely loved your story. My supposed due date was July 30, 2020. My husband and I lost our precious baby between 9-10 weeks. I found out January 7 that there was no heart beat. I was by myself when I went to the appointment and hearing that news, I’m glad I was by myself in a way because I needed that alone time with God on the way home. I found it strange but awesome that our pregnancies were about a week or so off and I had Noel written down as a name I wanted to use for our baby if it was a girl. God revealed to me that our precious baby was a boy. God works in awesome ways and I couldn’t more grateful for how he’s used me through this experience. I’m praying for you and your husband!

  9. Sam Manns says:

    Thank you for putting it all in words, I can so relate to your story. We lost our baby and it felt like my world ended. There is hope and today I have my rainbow baby almost turning 1..
    The time after the miscarriage was such a hard but precious time, a time to heal and prepare me for ‘now.

  10. Kim says:

    Jordan,
    Thank you for being so open and vulnerable about your experience. I lost my baby right around 8 weeks, too, back in October. Like you, this was my husband’s and my first pregnancy, and we were so excited. The night after I miscarried, I remember laying in bed with my husband and letting out this huge wail. It was so hard. It continues to be hard. Much love to you — you’re not alone.

  11. Beth says:

    My husband and I had a very similar experience in August of last year (2019). We lost our little one at 8 weeks. It was our first pregnancy as well, after trying for about 7 months. I just wanted to thank you for the words you’ve said. It is such an isolating experience, even though it is so common, it is so lonely. I know it was hard for you to share, I’ve had a hard time expressing it all myself. I just can so relate to a lot of the details you described. It was a far worse experience than I could have ever prepared for as well.
    We are in the process of trying again which has been a strange mixture of frustration and hope and fear. One of my friends said to me that after she miscarried, she had to pray against fear. And that really stuck with me. That’s what we are doing and I will pray the same for you two.

  12. Susie says:

    Thank you for sharing your story so that women can know that they are not alone and that others have the same thoughts and feelings after such a loss. We lost our baby 18 years ago this past January at 10 weeks. It was the most painful experience of my life to date. No one really talked about miscarriage back then so you felt very alone. You described every emotion that I went through at the time. We were blessed with our rainbow baby 11 months later one week before Christmas. He is a believer and will graduate high
    school this May. Know that we will be praying for you!

  13. Sara Divine says:

    I listened to your podcast on this and read the post too. I am so sorry for what you went through but I want to thank you for speaking out on miscarriage since it is something I have never heard talked about much in Christian and non-Christian circles. I have heard that each women’s experience is different with how they miscarry but I had no idea that it can take up to two weeks for everything to come through. I also never knew the causes and so that was very informative for me on that it can be caused by a chromosome but there are also other causes too. I had a friend who went through a miscarriage in September. I believe she was at six weeks and since then I have heard from a few others who have miscarried. My heart hurts for everyone, however it has been a reminder for me that as I long for deep friendships, that there is never going to be an arrival point and there will always be other longings or losses that we never expected. It reminds me to look at the bigger picture beyond myself and pray for women who have gone through miscarriages and/or who have wanted and tried having kids but couldn’t. Again, thank you so much for sharing Jordan and you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I just found this post after miscarrying this week and last night being the most physically painful as my body passed the baby. The added sting ks what we were surprised to even find ourselves pregnant, after 6+ years of “unexplained secondary infertility” that followed a ruptured ectopic. The past 6+ years was spent working to restore health and we found the “reasons” fertility clinics all missed. Despite hardwork and health healing, God didn’t answer our prayers for another baby & a year ago we stopped trying. So, we were VERY surprised to even become pregnant. We feel the added sting of our prayers answered long after we thought possible, being ripped away from us (like all miscarriages). Totally devastating.

    Thank you for sharing this – it is speaking to me almost in real time. I pray God heals us and redeems these losses.
