Melissa Bernstein, Melissa & Doug Toy Company

“Growing up I was consumed with the purpose of life, why I was put on this earth, what I was meant to do and if we were ultimately bound to die, what does it matter?”

Melissa Bernstein

Melissa Bernstein, Founder of Melissa & Doug Toy Company and Author of Lifelines: An inspirational journey from profound darkness to radiant light, shared the story behind her title with us on Sunday, September 26th, 2021.

In her latest book, Melissa mother of six, married 30 years, and entrepreneur shares her inspirational journey and the LifeLines that enabled her to triumph over anxiety, depression, and despair, a story she hopes will help others find their path to meaning and inner peace.


From a very young age Melissa had deep and dark thoughts about the meaning of life.  Not knowing consumed her, and left her feeling alone and severely depressed.  It was not until she discovered her purpose of creativity through the creation of her toy company that she was able to live a truly joyful life.  Now her purpose is to help others arrive at the same place.
