Have you ever been driving with your child asleep in their car seat, and their poor head is bobbing up and down? Have you then had to endure a long, noisy car ride with your child crying from a sore neck? If you have, you know exactly where I’m coming from. I frequently took those car rides with my daughter, and I know from experience how parents begin to dread them.
I also understand how parents will try anything and everything to make their child comfortable! For example, I tried rolling up a towel and putting it beside her head, but it would fall out every time. I also tried the donut-shaped product which also resulted in her head flopping forward. I have even tried to hold her head up with my own hand! (This I do not recommend because it is very uncomfortable, not to mention unsafe while driving.) I would constantly look in the mirror to see where her little head would be next. It really started to drive me crazy! I kept telling my husband “There has got to be a way to fix this!”
In the following months, my husband and I developed several prototypes until we finally found the perfect design. My daughter began using it, and those car rides became a lot more peaceful.
As time passed, I started hearing God’s voice in my spirit, “Other children have the same problem. Other parents are saying the exact same thing.”
This marks the beginning of the Sleepy Time Headrest Company! Once I started making the headrests, there were many orders to fill.
My prayer from the beginning has been that God would continue to bless this business and bless other children through it. He has placed multiple people in my path and, through them, has helped me get the headrest crash tested, into the special needs market, and in the catalogs of many great companies.
We started out making it as a comfort product, but God has turned it into a blessing for so many children. We had no idea that we would be able to help so many, but He did. We are truly blessed by God!
O Sovereign LORD,

who shields my head in the day of battle.
