I am a Christian woman who has been married for 33 years raising two children while working full time as a teacher. I love reading, crafts and cats (I currently have three). Recently, I made the decision to actively share my love of Young Living Essential Oils while also sharing my faith. I hope you enjoy my site!
A fellow teacher introduced me to Young Living about a year and a half ago. I had explored a few oils from other companies and wasn’t impressed. After about a month of listening to my colleague continually tell me how wonderful this company’s oils were, I ordered RC. I loved the product and began looking into some of the other products, researching their benefits. Putting together an order of the items I wanted to try, it quickly became apparent that it would be much less expensive to order a starter kit. That decision changed my life!
As I started using the various oils in the kit (and seeing results), I began to focus on health and wellness in a way I never had before. I began to exercise a bit more and make healthier food choices. Natural products slowly began to replace toxic cleaners, fragrance sprays, and scented candles. I even started creating a few DIY beauty products! All this has been great and my overall health has improved, however, the most important change in my life has been the refocusing of my faith. I have always been a Christian, but in the last year, my desire to fully trust God and live a life that is pleasing to Him has grown so much stronger.
Has all this been the result of using oils? Of course not, but oils have definitely supported this lifestyle change. I believe that these changes are the result of much prayer (my own and by others), reading scripture, and God working in my life as I struggle to trust Him more. But I also believe that just as God has provided doctors and medication to heal us, He also gave us many gifts in nature that are beneficial to maintaining our health and well being. We take advantage of the wonders of medicine so why not use the elements of nature He has also so graciously provided.
