She rises while it is still night

Being a mother is the most difficult ministry I’ve faced yet.

Sleep is something that is so important to my mental and physical health and I find I sacrifice that all the time for my children.

I strive to be the Proverbs 31 woman and pray constantly for wisdom and strength... and grace for my mistakes.

One thing that helps make this role as mommy easier is that I can be home. I don’t have to rush out the door at 6am to go work an 8-12 hour desk job or some other job I hate when I would really be desperately wishing to be home with my babies all day.

If you feel the same way and you are working a job you hate or that isn’t beneficial for your family, please message me. I’d love nothing more than to help you earn an income from the comfort of your own home.

God has a way of making His desires known in our hearts... and I believe that deep longing that lies within each of us “mommies” to be home with our children is truly from Him.

Don't be a dead fish

I’ve never really gone with the flow...

During the dark years of my addiction/mental illness I was in a constant state of inner turmoil because I never felt at peace. I was striving and striving to try and get better (or die) in my own strength and I always fell flat on my face. Doing things my way always brings chaos, confusion and discontentment. And consequently, separates me from God and His ways.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
-Romans 12:2 | NKJV

Doing things God’s way and against the ways of the world is sometimes very difficult... like we’re swimming upstream in an ocean of wavering and weary people who live only for themselves.

The Good News is that Jesus has overcome the world! And He lives within us so we also can overcome. On days where it’s extra hard to go against the flow of the world, He carries us through the overwhelming waves and pressures.

When we don’t conform and when we renew our minds, THEN we will be able to discern God’s will for our lives!

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were DEAD in trespasses, made us ALIVE together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus...
-Ephesians 2:4-6 | NKJV

Dilemma with Certain Governmental Agencies

I read alot about the chemistry and health benefits of essential oils and it is SO sad to me- like I want to cry- that because of certain government agencies and because I am a distributor; I am not permitted to. Their speech laws say that I cannot allude to the fact that essential oils can prevent, treat or cure any disease. 

So. With that said, please do your own research on oils. Make sure the company you are buying from is legit and that they have their hand in the beginning stages of the growth of the plant- all the way to the harvesting and distilling. Make sure they own their own farms and distilleries too. ALSO make sure they test their batches with at least a dozen different kinds of tests. Not just GCMS... that's very important. 

Are you aware of the miracle of essential oils?! I'd love to hear from you!
