There is Always Hope

When times get hard, it is important not to climb in your shell and hide from the world. Don’t isolate yourself. Don’t let those feelings of guilt, self-doubt, or feelings of not being enough to run your life. Instead, look to God for support and guidance. He is your rock. He will always be with you. Stand tall with your head held up high, because you ARE ENOUGH! God created you to live a life of abundance. He created you to be treated as royalty when you reach Him in Heaven. It is up to you now to make the changes in your life and your relationship with God, and to grow and move forward so you can achieve and receive everything He has stored up for you. He wants you to receive all that you have waiting for you!

When I am going through these difficult times and even when I’m not, I continually talk with God and look for His signs of reassurance that I am on the right path. Just recently, going through an extremely tough decision process, God has been with me the entire time. So much so, that every time I recognize another sign from Him it truly blows my mind. He is so in tuned to my needs and the pieces all seem to come together. I’m sure I’ve missed some signs, but I have recognized way more than I have missed – I am certain. These messages, signs, and His soft voice all come in different ways; yet, the come at the perfect time.

Just the other weekend, it was as if He went on a weekend get-a-way with me because every time I turned around, there was yet another sign.  He told me ‘Change was in the Air’, and before that, that ‘I needed to be willing to go it alone’. He told me to “trust in Him’ and ‘To Be Still’ because ‘He has this’. He pointed me to scriptures, such as John 29:11 over and over again……..

“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future”. ~ John 29:11

Be Still

Once I started to give in to His messages and believing He was in control, that’s when I started to come to terms with the idea that everything was going to work out. Then i started recognizing even more signs of reassurance. He put me in contact with a new friend that I met who even helped me think through my next plan of action. That friend just so happened to have personal first hand experience in what I was working through. I truly believe everything happens for a reason and we just need to trust in God at all times. He wants the best for us. He wants the best for each of us. I’ve said it before, I will continue to say it, but God brings people into our lives for a reason and/or a season. That friend I met, I haven’t spoken to since, but I believe she was that seasonal friend and she helped me with exactly what she needed to and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Don’t give up on your situation. Don’t give up on God, and don’t give up on Hope! Your circumstances can change in a split second. Keep your eyes on God and He will keep His eyes on you. Feel His presence as he holds you with his right hand. Feel his arms around you as He lovingly cradles you, and as you do, you will feel peace enter your very soul!

Remember though, your situation may not turn out the way you planned, but it will turn out better than you expected. You see, God knows all, sees all, and takes us all into consideration. He may even use us to help someone else. God places the light in us to shine onto others. He uses us for the good of all. Simply hold on to Hope that tomorrow is going to be better. Take one day at a time and trust in the Lord.

Be Still!

We Are the Branches

We need God as much as He needs us to be the light for others. This world is a crazy place, but if us believers shine our lights and stay focused on God and His path for us we will will be able to help so many people see past the dark clouds and recognize the blue skies.  They’ll be able to look past their pain and begin healing. They will begin to recognize the Signs from God and hear his soft whispers, just as we hear Him whisper to us!

For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.

As the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways

and my thoughts than your thoughts.

~ Isaiah 55:8-9

Do You Pray For Yourself?

This is a question that I was asked just this week, and I couldn’t help but to respond with a heartfelt, resounding, “YES!”

It is ok to pray for our own desires. After all, there are atleast 100 bible verses about praying for yourself. We shouldn’t be afraid to ask God for what we want, because He wants us to be happy. He wants to please us.

“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find;

knock, and it will be opened to you.”  ~ Matthew 7:7

I was then asked, “How do you do that?”  It then dawned on me that we are all different in our spiritual growth and our own journey with God. I never grew up as a loyal church goer because of my mother’s illness and struggles. I actually felt deprived in this area. Though she certainly has made it up to me in my later years and I have learned so much. There isn’t though, to my knowledge, a right or wrong way to pray.

I have learned, or shall I say,  practiced in my daily quiet time with God to always thank Him first for everything He has given me and allowed me to be blessed with. I thank Him for His continued increasing presence in my life and bringing me closer to Him more and more everyday. I thank Him for all of the small blessings and especially those larger blessings. Then when I am done praising Him for His works in me, I pray that He recognize other areas of my life I need help with, so that I am able to do His Will. I ask for guidance and patience. When it comes to my business, I ask that He sends me all the right people that I am able to bless and share my story with. I pray that they have open minds and a willingness to look outside of their comfort zone and at their own overall wellness needs.

You see, I truly believe God’s Will for me is to share about stress, anxiety, depression, and how I have learned to manage my stress levels and emotions using essential oils for emotional balance and spiritual grounding. God answered my prayer that day I prayed for a way to make money so that I could eventually quit my corporate job and do His Will. He placed a dream in my heart years and years ago to be an author and I am.  He also placed a dream and continues to keep lighting the flame within my mother and I to tell her story of her miraculous healing back in 1980. Though as we have all heard, everything comes in His timing and not our own. Certain circumstances and events have had to happen in order for His Will to come together. For my mother and I, we feel we are getting closer and closer to that time when her story will be written.

We also feel that our following has increased and our journey has taken a slight turn. This slight turn though, has helped us learn how to live a healthier lifestyle. It has introduced us to so many amazing new friends. It has helped us remove the toxins from our lives, and it has helped us help so many families do the same thing. These families will continue to be blessed as a result of Young Living essential oils and our ability to be vulnerable. These families will be the ones that seek out our book, “A Mountain to Climb” and these families will be a part of our lives for a very long time.  How do I know this, you ask?

I know, because I pray to God every day asking for him to bring me all the right people that will help make our dreams come true, and He brought me YOU!

Matthew7-7

DO YOU BELIEVE?

Just like building our business, we all grow differently, we all have our own beliefs, we all find God in our own timing. Whether you believe in God, or a higher power, we still believe in something so much greater than us. For me, it is all about God and He has been calling on me for a long time. I’ve believed all my life, but it hasn’t been until I’d say these last five years where I’ve noticed my spirituality really taking off.

I’ve learned to recognize His Signs and hear His small voice in my head whispering what I needed to do. I am here today to tell you, that when I listened and did what I was asked to do, my world started to change. And not in a little way, but a big way! The more I do for Him, the more He does for me.

This year, OMGosh, at times, I feel like I’m flying so high I can’t stand it! I am getting so involved in my church, that I will be up on stage Tuesday night. That has been a dream of mine, ever since I walked in that church five years ago! Jesus is calling us all, we just have to be willing to listen!

My mother for many years always kept bringing up God and trying to get me more and more involved with the church and the Bible, etc. But you know what, it has to come naturally, just like building our following, our books, our Young Living business. I can’t force anyone to share or do the business with us. You have to WANT it for yourself, you have to BELIEVE in what you are doing, and why you are doing it, and most importantly you have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!!!

I’m here today to share this with you because God is the one who placed this opportunity in my lap after I prayed and prayed for a way to make money so that I could do His Will, so that I would be able to retire from my day job and continue to share my love of Him with all of those who struggle with stress, anxiety, and depression. And now, I get to do all of that, but I also get to tie it back to essential oils and how all of the emotional and spiritual oils have helped keep me focused and grounded to my purpose. He is the one I have to thank for ALL OF YOU!

HE IS CALLING YOU TOO, AND I’M SO GLAD HE BROUGHT YOU HERE!!!!! xoxoxo

Jesus Calling

GET OUT OF THE BACK ROW!

Get out of your comfort zone. Get out of the boat, and dance on water with God! 

Last night at Bible Study, I met an amazing leader and I know that she will play a role in my success in making my biggest dream come true! In fact, she already has! She and I have alot in common and I know once we find time to meet and get to know each other, the similarities will grow. How do I know this? God brought her into my life for a reason!

You see, the first day my best friend and I decided to check out this new Church called Lifepoint, and we sat in the audience in awe, the music and the people drew us both in. I felt the music in my very soul, I felt His presence in my heart and felt as if my heart was beating stronger as a result. I knew in that moment that this Church would become a part of me. I told my friend, Karen, that one day I will be standing on that stage.

This is basically the same message that this amazing leader spoke about last night!  She talked about how she sat in the back row of this very same church when God spoke to her and gave her the same dream and she followed His every move to be that leader on stage speaking for God! I had to meet her! I didn’t hesitate, not even for one second, to walk up to her and introduce myself. Years ago, I never would have done such a thing. I was too shy, too intimidated, too scared.  But ever since God directed me and placed that desire in my heart to write my first book, “Signs from God”, He has constantly urged me to get out of my comfort zone and put my faith in Him!  I’ve taken that chance every time and I know that one day, I too, will be on that stage dancing with God!

Everyone has a life to live; everyone has a job to do in this life. So live your life, but take some time to really think about what your purpose is in this life. How can you help other people? How can you help spread God’s Love?  Is it through healing? Is it through your music? Is it through teaching? Is it through serving? There are so many different ways we can do God’s work. Spend time with God and He will lead you. Ask for His help and He will guide you. Believe in His timing and know that He is with you and loves you unconditionally, all the time. He will help you get out of your comfort zone. He will bring the people into your life, at the right time, to ensure you have everything you need to be successful. God wants you to step out of that boat; out of your comfort zone; away from safety, and put your trust in Him! He not only wants you to walk on water like Peter, He wants us to Dance on Water with Him!

Start speaking life and purpose so that you feel it in your soul! You are meant to make a difference in this lifetime! With God’s help you can do anything you set your mind to! Here’s a picture I had taken after a Young Living conference when I knew that one day I would be up on a stage, bigger than this one, speaking about stress, anxiety, depression, and Miracles and how Young Living and the Lord changed my life!

See It; Dream It; Believe It – It Will Happen!

ONSTAGE

If It Feels Right, It’s Right!

I’m pretty sure we would all agree that decisions are very difficult to make at times. I know personally I was in a very dark place and so distraught trying to make a life-altering decision.  The tears I shed were almost never-ending. Finally, God stepped in and realized I had had enough. That’s because I was begging for His help because I couldn’t decide what was best. I couldn’t understand what His Will was for me, and it was His Will that I wanted to follow. Finally, I was prepared to make a decision based on what I thought I wanted, and then literally minutes before the decision was communicated, that decision was totally flipped the other way. His Will was relayed to me, and the next steps were revealed. What I learned during that time was that if it feels right, it is! If you are struggling with the decision then that’s your answer. Stick to what feels right!  When it feels right in your heart find a way to stick with it and make it work, whatever the issue is. Once you make that decision, just do it! Be strong, be committed, make the change and be done with it so you can and move on! If you dwell on it too long, you will change your mind and drive yourself crazy!

Only you can change your life; only you can change your destiny!

Feel good about the decision and move forward!

Don’t Wait! Take Control Now!

I can only imagine what life would be like if only I knew what I know now! How many times have we all said this?  Let me help you because the time is NOW! Don’t Wait!

i can only imagine

I’m sure you’ve heard the scary stories about all the toxins in our lives these days. Do you know the average woman puts on over 300 toxins before she even leaves the house in the morning? It’s crazy, and don’t even get me started on all the chemicals and by-products that are in our foods, or the difference between organic, all-natural, therapeutic, etc. etc. It’s time we all do some research because we are killing ourselves slowly. I so wish I knew years ago what I know now! It could have changed things so much more for the better. My kids could have had a much healthier head start in life had I known what I know now!  I have learned that there are better alternatives, we can live a toxin free life, and you know who taught me? That’s right Young Living!

Essential oils support every system in our body, including our emotions, and spiritual grounding. These oils touch every cell within our body within twenty minutes! With Young Living essential oils you can use them, aromatically, topically, and even through ingestion!

If there was ever a better time to become a Young Living Member, it is NOW!  Essential Oils are on the rise big time. There are so many companies introducing essential oils into their products, but people it is so important for everyone to realize the importance of Quality essential oils.  I’ve been a member of Young Living for almost the past two years and I have learned so much through my research and everything that their doctors and scientists and those Royal Crown Diamonds who have been around much longer than I have.

Young Living is the founder when it comes to essential oils. Gary Young had over 30 years of experience in the field of essential oils and he and his wife founded Young Living almost 25 years ago.  They will be celebrating 25 Years in Business next year and I am so excited to be a part of that team of builders sharing the love of what Gary and Mary created all those years ago!

GradeAOils

Young Living is the only company with the Seed-to-Seal guarantee that we are receiving the purest form of 100% Therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils and they stand behind that committment and reinforce how important quality is to them. The culture, vision, passion, and everything they have built eminates the love they put into Young Living and all of their members who join in their passion for sharing their own love of Young Living essential oils and natural plant-based products!

It is important to note that true Grade A oils can’t be found at Walmart or other general stores for $5! It is critical that you learn to read your labels. Look for warning signs saying do not apply topically, do not ingest, call poison control, etc. These types of companies are able to price their essential oils at a more economical cost because they are adding carrier oils and synthetics (which are cancerous) to fill their bottles and cut costs. Young Living does not cut corners or quality for the sake of cost. Nothing is more important to Young Living than Quality!

When it comes to giving back to their members, it is especially obvious this month just how much they give back.  I have never seen so many promotions going on in one month before. The promos though, they aren’t all just from Young Living. The support that the members give each other is extradorinary too because everyone wants to help each other grow.  It is the best MLM Company I have every worked for and am so very proud to say will be the last company I ever work with. I am now my own boss growing my own business thanks to Young Living!

Don’t delay, get on the oily band wagon today! Start taking control of your own health and wellness. Start ditching the toxins from your life! And if you decide this is a great business opportunity for you too, I would love to support you and help grow your business!

The time is now! Let’s do this together!  Look at all the ways you can get more this month!  First you want to become a Member http://www.believeinessentials.com

Let Go and Let God!

Everyone has there own way of praying and talking with God, and one of my favorite ways to communicate with God is through Journaling. This morning as I was sitting in my quiet place at the lake, I started thanking Him for getting me to the Lake this weekend and for the rain we heard as we were lying in bed before we got up. It was as if God were raining down on us and the peace I felt was so comforting. I then started thanking Him for his presence in my life and in that moment. I’ve been struggling lately with letting go of worries and asked Him to help me trust Him and not worry about anything or anyone else for my peace. It was then that it dawned on me, that God has my back and all I need to do is turn it over to Him and stop stressing about the things that I cannot change or control.  Then the phrase ‘Let Go and Let God’ entered my mind. I knew this all along, shoot I tell other people, so why do I need to be reminded all the time? I guess it is always easier when you are living in that moment, but now whenever I start to regress in my worries, I will remember and repeat this phrase, “Let Go and Let God”!

After all, God is the only one in control of our lives and it is in His timing when we will recognize the rewards and all of the puzzle pieces of life will fit together and we will realize the importance of His timing!

Let Go and Let God

IT’S ABOUT TO GET REAL!!!!

Let me tell you a little story and do my best to keep it short because if you’ve been following me, you already know most of this! But what I’m about to tell you could change your life too!  In fact, that’s my whole purpose in life right now…..to help people become a better person; help them live a better life full of abundance and purpose; help people remove the toxins from their life so they can live a healthier life; help people become their own boss!

ABUNDANCE

Right now, you are probably saying, Oh No! I knew it – another MLM, but people this is REAL and it’s about to get even MORE REAL!!!  Young Living just announced that, effective August 1st we can now enroll our Spouse in the business under us!  This company gives back in so many ways it’s actually hard to fathom at times. I’ve worked for several different MLMs, but I have never felt this strong about a company, their products, passion, culture, sense of family and how much they give back to all of their members! This passion and culture has been passed down to everyone in the company I have come in contact with and it reinforces my love for this business more and more every day!

If you aren’t yet a member and user of Young Living Essential Oils and natural products, you need to stop what you’re doing and start your own research!  Where can you do that?  www.believeinessentials.com   These 100% Therapeutic Grade A Essential Oils support every system in your body, including our emotional balance and spiritual grounding.  They got me through my heart attack and all the stress that went along with that. They now allow me to manage my stress levels, my digestive system, cardiovascular system, etc.

If you are a member, but are not yet sharing with your friends and family….I ask you why not?  Afraid you aren’t a salesman, don’t have the time, not enough friends? Trust me, I’ve heard all the excuses, in fact, I had them myself when I first signed up.  I quickly learned though, that we aren’t salesmen and don’t have to be, because these oils and products practically sell themselves. All we have to do, is share how we use them!  And when you love a product, it just comes naturally.  Sharing from the heart is easy!

Commission Pic

Today, before this huge announcement from Young Living today, I was going to post how I was able to pay our boat payment and have all of my oils paid for this month! Yeah, I’ve been a member for about 1.5 years, but now I am starting to recognize the larger your team grows, the larger your organization grows, and the larger your paycheck grows! Next month, I anticipate I’ll be able to pay for all of my oils, sign up my husband as a Member and Business Builder, pay for our boat payment again, add to that our camper payment, car payment, and start another savings account for him and his new business!

I expect to get a big promotion within the next couple of months, and when that happens my commission is literally going to quadruple!!!  Today, the possibilities of our income actually doubling as we both grow this business is literally unbelievable to even fathom! I can’t wait to strategize together and build each other so that we can live an amazing life of FREEDOM and so can our children one day….it’s residual and willable income!!!

Kids you are welcome!

You see, God gave us what we needed to survive a long time ago. That’s right. On Day 3, God created the trees and plants that cover our ground with abundance!
