Hello World!

I am new to this whole blogging thing! So new that I am not really sure what I am doing but I am muddling my way through, hoping that at least one person will read my blog. If I get one person, then my efforts will have been successful!

A little about me: I am a wife, mother to 6 children, and grandmother to one granddaughter (so far!). My husband and I have been married for 19 years (on Feb 7th!). My husband and I blended a family together when we decided to get married. We both walked into the marriage with two sons from previous marriages who were all between the ages of 2-8 years old. Blending a family is not easy, we had many struggles, joys, triumphs, and successes. All of our sons are now wonderful adults. Two of the four sons are married and, like I said above, I have one beautiful and fun little granddaughter who is 3 months old. My husband and I adopted girl/boy twins when our older four sons were all in high school or college; the twins were 3 years old when they came to live with us. That presented a whole new chapter in our lives, and opened up a whole new avenue of challenges. My husband and I are believers and have had to lean on our faith in Jesus to, some of the days, just get us through each day. Thankfully, our God is faithful and has definitely walked with us on this journey.

I started down the path of living naturally with essential oils about a twelve years ago, using different essential oil companies than what I use now. I like the idea of using what comes from the earth. I believe that God created everything under the sun and that he created them with medicinal and therapeutic properties that benefit us. My two stepsons both had different forms of ADHD and depression and were on medication for it. I began looking into essential oils to see if they could help my sons with their attention and focus issues and to help emotionally balance them, as well as help enhance our immune systems to help our family be healthy.  I had some success here and there until I found the essential oil company I use now.  I was introduced to doTERRA over a year ago and I fell in love with the company. I love their mission of sharing life-enhancing benefits of therapeutic grade essential oils with the world by discovering and developing the world’s highest quality essential oil products. They produce their essential oil products to the highest standard of quality, purity, and safety used in the industry-CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. This is why I have chosen this company for me personally, and for my family. I use these essential oils and their essential oil infused supplements every day! I put them on my children’s feet, neck and body, my grandbaby’s feet, my feet, and anyone else’s feet that I can get! I ingest the oils daily either in my water or in capsules and I do all of this to enhance our health and quality of life! My husband and children ingest these oils too! This is how safe they are! I love that I can give them to my 10 year olds! I love to share what I have learned. I love to share what has worked well for me or my family and friends and I love to share success stories! This is what I will be doing in this blog, so come along on this journey with me! I would love to have you!
