Two Major Concerns about Network Marketing with Young Living– and Their Answers

As a Christian — a conservative Christian — I had to tackle with a couple of major concerns before I felt free to jump into a home-based business: one about network marketing in general, and the other about Young Living Essential Oils in particular. What were those concerns, and what answers did I find? Continue reading

New Essential Oils Video with Me!

Okay, so this is the condensed version of the Essential Oils 101 classes I just gave in my house this past weekend. So far, I have given six presentations — whoo hoo! I’m still a beginner at this, but I feel like I’m learning so much, so fast! This is an exciting journey that our family started more than a year ago when we first started using Essential Oils from Young Living, and the momentum is growing!

Why Test God? Finding an Alternative to Chemicals

Thieves Home Cleaning Kit

Cleaning out my cupboards — and my life — can feel so overwhelming! As I look around our house — the food in our cabinets, the stuff under our sink, the shelves over our washer — the enormity of what it means to live a more healthy lifestyle begins to sink in.

In my last post, I talked about not letting your dreams die. Now, old dreams might change and have to be reinvented into new ones; but, the passion that fuels those dreams–both old and new–remains intact, and THAT is what we do not let go of. We simply redirect it into another conduit. Let me tell you about one of my dreams that has had to change, but which I refuse to give up on. Continue reading
