Jennifer Carson

Glory Babies Tyler Facilitator

Jennifer Carson founded and facilitates our Glory Babies Tyler Support Group. After losing her son, Braden, in 1999, she needed a place to process her grief, a safe place where she would be supported and encouraged to continue growing. Out of her own grief journey has grown a passion to come alongside others who are hurting to share the comfort she has received.

Her greatest treasures are Jesus and her family, consisting of Braden, her husband and two other precious children.
