We have a unique lifestyle that has taken us on a new adventure from a state of un-health to a state of victory. What we’ve experienced is like so many of you, who are struggling to find a way to overcome so many of the burdens in this life, but I want to tell you we’ve had victory! God had a purpose for me and our family and we walk in it everyday. We can choose to be affected by the world or we can start to do something about it – TODAY. It is my passion to help you explore a lifestyle that centers around balance, restoration, abundance, and purpose. I’d love to chat with you! Send me a message 🙂
About 2 years ago my son was at preschool and it was just like any other day until this therapist messaged me to say that he wasn’t acting quite right. Back then he was only in school half days, so around 11:30 I went to pick him up and immediately knew something wasn’t right.
I grabbed my video camera and began to document what was going on. After much investigation and some lab tests, we found out that he suffered a chemical sensitivity from the cleaners used in his school.
The ewg.org (Environmental Working Group) website helped me to understand just how harmful many of the cleaners we use today are. Just check out the rating on some of these common products we all use:
I don’t know about you, but I don’t want those products in my home any longer! No wonder so many children/adults have chronic illness! What are we doing to our bodies?
It was 2 days after that dreadful day that I attended the AutismOne conference in Chicago for the second year in a row. While there, I listened to a profession talk about toxins in our everyday products and was just floored! Even before we had proof that my son had a chemical reaction, I knew in my mommy gut that THIS is what happened to him.
I met with her following the presentation and listened to her story of victory in going non-toxic and I wanted to do it too! I met with a few other friends and several of us signed up for our very first Young Living Kit together. She shared such a powerful message and that is what I try to do today as well.
There is hope in a healthier living and there can be sweet victory in it too. My life is forever changed and this is my Young Living Story.
My kids were always waking up in the middling of the night with those – you know – growing discomforts that a lot of kids go through. It ALWAYS happened in the middle of the night – ALWAYS. Especially when I would go to bed really late. It’s like they knew how to time it so that I would have just fallen alseep, to wake up crying.
One of the very first benefits I saw, was to try to use an oil called Panaway, especially formulated by Gary Young himself, to see if this essential oil would help decrease their discomfort and get my kids back to sleep faster. I was anticipating their next nightly waking.
Sure enough, that night came shortly after I received my Premium Starter Kit. When my youngest son woke up, I grabbed the panaway (I had already put my aromaglide fitment on it for easier application of the oil) and I rubbed his foot where he said it bothered him. In 5 minutes………………F I V E minutes, he was back to sleep and slept the rest of the night. That – my friends – was my very first testimony that there was something special about these oils. Something I loved – because I wasn’t dumping chemicals down their throat and waiting 20-30 minutes for those chemicals to work. I had a new found sense of empowerment! It was healthy, it was good and MOM helped them! It was a proud moment for me.
Did you know there are over 600 references to essential oils and/or aromatic plants from which they were extracted in the Bible? WOW! Even the people in ancient times understood the power and importants of plants and how they could benefit them and their families.
Proverbs 21:20 reads: “There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise.” I am a believer and I believe God knows exactly what we need and gave us tools right at our fingertips.
