As I look back now I see how everything in my life has led up to this point. Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always been concerned about the things we put into our environment. The way our oceans take in so much garbage. Recycling. Logging unnecessary trees. All of the chemical components in cleaners and what that was doing to the atmosphere as well as ourselves. I’ve never been one to take a lot of medicine (however, I do believe in modern medicine and that it has it’s place!). So when I started my own family, I became naturally curious. So many do’s and dont’s. And when I hit a point of nothing helping Talyn as a baby, I finally turned to essential oils for sleep and teething issues.
I did my research and went with the best I could find – Young Living. Little did I know that these tiny bottles of oils would flip our lives upside down in more ways than one, and over the last 2 years I’ve been trying to figure out just what that means.
As a family, we have been trying to get back to the basics. In our Christian lives, with Jesus Christ as the center, finding just what our purpose in Him is. In our mental lives, getting rid of the junk that doesn’t need to be there. In our physical lives, watching what goes into our bodies and on our bodies and trading those toxic things out for a better way.
It’s an ever-growing and ever-changing process that has evolved and will continue to evolve. But I will never stop shouting from the rooftops all that Young Living has done for us, and continues to for us, in hopes that we can help others get back to their basics.
