I feel like through all my 8 years of blogging, I have always been transparent with y’all. I’ve poured my heart & soul out over my spiritual battles, shared some of my most scariest times, and giggled over those super fun moments. Y’all have always been there, supporting and encouraging me every step of the way. My prayer is that it continues with my newest journey of wellness.
You see, several months ago, when I parted ways with a company, I literally sat in a depressive state wondering how in the world our family would survive with well over $2000 a month of my income gone. I had no desire to do anything. I felt betrayed after giving them all I had through blogging, and on several occasions, even my heart. I just didn’t know how the bills would get paid and just wanted to curl up and cry. And I did. But I also prayed. Fast forward to a few months later when I was approached with the business opportunity through Young Living Essential oils. When I first joined Young Living, it was a business decision. In all my 22 years as a stay-at-home mom, I had NEVER sold anything or been apart of any network marketing company. The thing is, I had been praying for so long and even getting upset with God and demanding an answer to my prayers, that when Young Living entered my life, I felt nothing but peace & confirmation.
Two weeks into using the essential oils, I quickly realized that this was God’s clever way to get me on a path to wellness. With no insurance, I needed something new (to me anyways) to try and maintain my health. Within the third week, my ‘why’ was no longer focused on the business aspect, but instead focusing on keeping me and my family well. A couple of months in, I knew God’s intent was for me to also help others through essential oils. Recently I attended a Young Living convention and shared this on facebook.
Most conferences I’ve attended are usually like 90% business and 10% personal so it was refreshing to attend one that was the complete opposite. And it was even more refreshing to hear so much praise and thanks to our good Lord. That alone was even more confirmation to me that I’m with the right company. I’m so thankful that the Lord heard my prayers for those months and put Young Living in my path. While I am doing this as a business, I have clarity that His ultimate path for me was a path of wellness. If He sees to bless me financially, that’s just a big ol’ bonus. People have no clue how amazing these oils are and so I just pray that I can help change a life through YL’s essential oils. Thank your Lord, for giving us one of the most sustainable things possible to You.
There are very few things, if any, that make me feel confident but Young Living is one of them. 5 months in, I still have peace about the decision and I see confirmation through Him constantly. Please know that while I am pursuing this as a business, that does not drive me. The Lord will bless me as he sees fit. As always, what I share with you about essential oils, is from the heart. I truly want your family to experience one of the closest sustainable things we have to God and living a life of wellness.
