Welcome! We are so glad you found us!
I want to share our story, because our life has been dramatically changed for the better over the last (almost) five years.
Our journey began in February 2014, when I had been recently diagnosed with the BRCA-2 gene. For those that are not familiar with that term, it's the breast cancer gene. Anyone with the gene has a higher risk of breast cancer and the risk of ovarian cancer doubles! Yikes...I know! I had some major decisions to make, but in addition, my son, whose dad died when he was 12, was a senior in high school, missing his dad and thinking about college, the anxiety was epic!
Enter in my friend, she listened to my 'crazy' life and had shared about Young Living Essential Oils. I wanted to try and find products that would support our health in our home. Face it, I can't do anything about my gene pool, but I can find ways to support my family through plant based products and getting rid of 'yucky' chemicals. After researching, like a crazy mom, I jumped in and honestly we have never regretted the decision. The health of our family and our home has dramatically changed for the better. Friends are the best, aren't they!
We were blessed to have a dear friend share with us and we have continued by sharing with others. We can speak to the heart of other families. We have cried, cheered on and hugged our friends as they have had successes. We won't keep silent, we will continue to share. This is our mission. We ENCOURAGE, EDUCATE and EMPOWER other families to begin the journey of wellness with us. We love what we do. We are passionate about making sure others can have the same opportunity that we were given.
We are blessed to be leaders of the Breeze and Lavender team (a part of the SHINE team). We focus on education and have hundreds of families sharing and caring! We host weekly online classes on and off Facebook, we host classes in our home and in the homes of others (gather your friends for a great time!), educational materials can be found within our team pages, text programs on various topics and even some UTube videos! Honestly, I took many classes in my pj's with a cup of hot cocoa and learned absolutely everything I could possibly learn on my time. We have a team that's worldwide, so learning on your own time helps so many near and far, and families that have busy schedules!
Let us encourage you to look through the site. We teach about using Essential Oils and Essential Oil Infused products straight from Young Living. Through our site, you can browse and order the specific oil and/or product you know you want. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or help with your choice of what oil and/or product that best meets your health goals.
In addition to being blessed leaders, Steve works in Boston at a bank full time. When Steve has some free time, you will find him working around the yard or taking a ride on his Harley! I am a Reiki Master and volunteer at our local hospital providing Reiki services. I knit, crochet and scrapbook in my free time with an awesome group of friends. Talk to me about my 'Creative' blend I make with my Young Living Oils...it definitely helps with inspiration! We have 3 boys between us and a 'crazy' jack russell mix named Brady who keeps us on our toes!
We are passionate about helping you discover what you and your family need, how to use essential oils and the oil infused products and what will help you and your family.
Blessings to you and your family,
Donna and Steve Venning
Silver Leader with Young Living Essential Oils
