A Mother-Daughter Duo Spreads Happiness With Their Amazing Creation

"There's something about words that are so powerful, that can touch something inside of us, that can shift our perspectives." Those words, which are powerful themselves, are how Pam Robertson explains the rapid success of a simple idea that she and her daughter came up with, an idea that was inspired by their personal experiences with the emotional power of beautiful strings of words.


The inspiration for their business came about after a fallout between Meredith and her childhood best friend left her heart-broken. Pam, being the loving mother she is, wanted to help!

Using a simple, spiritual practice, Pam placed a big glass bowl of inspirational quotes on her daughters' desk, in hopes that she would read one each day, but they sat untouched for over a month! But after much reluctance, Meredith eventually obliged and... it changed her life! "The words that I read were exactly what I needed to hear in that moment, on that day!" declares Meredith.

With the knowledge of how much the quotations had lifted Meredith's spirits, the mother-daughter team decided that they wanted to spread that feeling to more young people in Meredith's school. They created a whole batch of jars, each filled with Meredith's 30 favorite quotations. Meredith started handing the jars out to her classmates, thinking they could all use some inspiration—but the jars became so much more!

Pam and Meredith started getting letters from all over the country, from cousins and friends of kids in Meredith's school who had heard about the jars and wanted some for themselves. And so "Meredith's Jars of Joy" was born. Today, the mother-daughter team sell and ship the jars all over the USA, and they donate a portion of their profits to a nonprofit called Family Promise.

In explaining the success of her mom's idea, Meredith emphasizes the power of positive thinking and hope: "If you read a quote and you want it to help you, I believe that it can."
