Some people are shower people & some people are "die hard" bath soakers! I will confess up front. I am a soaker! My bath time is, to me, more about relaxing, balancing my mind & washing off all the day's stresses. I just want peace & tranquility~not so much about being physically clean~which is just another side effect of soaking! 

I am about to give you some hints on making a few, simple, inexpensive changes to your bathroom to completely cheer up your bathing mood!

1) Clean the bathroom~if you have time. That way, you won't be in the tub looking around saying to yourself, "I really need to clean this bathroom! If it's clean, then you're mind is going to ease with one less worry. 

2) Have a focal point. BE SURE to have something in your bathroom that you love to look at. It may be a beach scene, a flower garden or just a family portrait. Personally, I have a cottage & garden scene in mine, because I'm from the country & that represents peace to me. NOTE: I don't like people staring  at me~even if it is a photograph! lol

3) Candles. I personally don't like to burn candles. I really don't know what the ingredients in the candles are. So I like to use battery operated candles. My favorite ones are the ones that look like they're flickering like a real candle without all the "off gases" from a real fragranced or dyed candle. Here are some tricks that I use to create a relaxed atmosphere without burning candles but still use some of the gorgeous designer candles you might find on sale.


4) Pretty towels or just clean fresh towels. Folded pretty on the side of the tub. Most of us can't get away to a spa & hot tub~BUT we can pretend. Make our body & mind believe that we're being treated to a special occasion.

5) Music. I love to have a little music or sounds on that do NOT make me think. That "soothe the soul" so to speak. You can get on www.pandora.com & create your own station. Nature sounds, soft jazz, classical or anything you like that brings happy, relaxed memories. I have the free version & I really don't get that many commercials thrown in. I have the app put on my phone so I can access it at any time. 

What you may not realize is the brain responds continuously to what you see, hear, touch, taste & smell. So far, we have calmed & soothed 3 of the 5.

6) Create your basic bath water by adding 1/2 to 1 cup of Espom Salts or Living Clay. These will allow you to add any fragrances to your water without them stinging the skin.

7) Aroma. I like to add 5-10 drops of essential oils to my bath water~but ONLY therapeutic grade oils that I have knowledge & confidence that they have been raised & distilled so as not to add a toxic load to me body. (Hey! I'm trying to get rid of stuff NOT soak in something that is going to add to my burden! ) Lavender, Release & Transformation are incredible oils to help you process your emotions of the day. Helps the body to let go of negative feelings that have stored in your body & taken so much of you energy.

Now, get in. Breathe deeply. Relax & let the worries of the day just melt off into the bath. Rejuvenated Don't you feel like we've taken the right steps to Cheer up your bathing mood with aromatherapy essential oils?

Here is an amazing kit to help you process your emotions & become more balanced.

A Wrinkle in Time? Wink! Wink!

A Wrinkle in Time? Wink! Wink! Wait! Don't wink too much, it'll cause more wrinkles!

I usually concentrate on essential oils. I realized that I haven't been fair to you by keeping this one particular subject virtually to myself! 

I want to talk to you about skincare & using chemical laden cosmetics.

I decided I needed to do this for you, when I heard my daughter say, "Mama, I had "suggested" some things to my boss for skin care & just didn't bring it up again for a while. When the subject did come up again, then her boss said, "Well, I just went to (mall) and spent $300 to get my skincare." " Well, that was a bummer, to say the least! Not only was this a disappointment, but to know that she more than likely is packing in the chemicals through her skincare, toner & mask! Let it SOOOOOOAK in…

art beauty set

Young Living has a skincare line that is fabulous! Why? Because these were created to emphasize your inherent beauty in a safe, natural way that doesn’t compromise your long-term health! 

You really don't stop to think about your skincare products affecting your HEALTH did you? Do you know that reports all on the internet report that women could be absorbing up to 5lbs a year of chemicals in their bodies? It would make perfect sense, since we use skincare, masks, foundation, eye shadow, hair spray & on & on. PLUS the way we use our cleaning products (which is a different subject for a different day!) 

 It's time that we paid attention to what we're putting on our bodies & not just what we're putting IN our bodies! The ART Skincare system is based on botanicals & essential oils! 


Here is a partial list of ingredients to give you a little insight,  since I don't have time to go into every ingredient of what you can look forward to in the lART Light Moisturizer:

 Betaine, Theobroma grandiflorum (Cupuacu) seed butter, Glyceryl stearate, Olea europaea (Olive) fruit unsaponifiables, Sodium stearoyl lactylate, Squalane, Lecithin, Lonicera caprifolium (Honeysuckle) flower extract, Lonicera japonica (Honeysuckle) leaf extract, Glycine soja (Soybean) sterols, Cyamopsis tetragonoloba (Guar) gum, Dipotassium glycyrrhizate Opuntia ficus-indica leaf cell extract, , Santalum paniculatum† (Royal Hawaiian™ Sandalwood) wood oil, Boswellia carterii† (Frankincense) oil, Quillaja saponaria wood extract, Leucojum aestivum bulb extract, Orchis mascula flower extract, Polygonum aviculare extract, Tocopherol, Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Benzyl alcohol (natural) †100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oil Opuntia ficus-indica leaf cell extract, Sodium phytate, Xanthan gum, Santalum paniculatum† (Royal Hawaiian™ Sandalwood) wood oil, Boswellia carterii† (Frankincense) oil, Quillaja saponaria wood extract, Leucojum aestivum bulb extract, Orchis mascula flower extract, Polygonum aviculare extract, Tocopherol, Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, Benzyl alcohol (natural) †100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oil.

Young Living goes to great lengths to make sure that the ingredients come from botanical sources.

Now, I have to present to you MY FAVORITE product of them all! 

cream mask

Young Living has brought the age-defying and Wellness benefits of the world’s finest spas directly into your home with the A·R·T Creme Masque. This formula is designed to deeply moisturise and fortify your skin’s natural defenses using our exclusive blend of hyaluronic acid and pure essential oils. The Creme Masque targets the effects of aging to help you maintain wellness, younger-looking skin.

All-natural botanicals such as cucumber extract, aloe vera, vitamin C, and green tea are added to soothe, protect, and tighten delicate areas of the face, leaving skin feeling more youthful and radiant. Use this product daily with any of the A·R·T line of products to discover the lasting benefits of essential oil-infused skin care.

I have been a country girl all my life! I've ridden horses, raked hay on a tractor, love mowing the yard & of course~out on the four wheeler chasing cows when needed! Then, soaking up some rays on the pontoon! And yours truly, wasn't the best in the world at taking care of her skin. I know. I know. That was stupid, but as usual~hind sight is 20/20! So now, I've had some discolorations, & some creaping wrinkles coming on& with the winter months & dry heat in the house~well…need I say more except: I LOVE THIS PRODUCT! 

When I apply this cream mask, almost immediately my skin feels so soft and smooth. I apply a little extra in my "special" places. Under my eyes, around my mouth and my frown lines. You can't see it because it's cream & your skin absorbs so much of it! I love to wear it all night & even under my makeup with the regular moisturizer when I feel like I need more hydration & I like it that I have a barrier between my skin & makeup with these natural products!

It leaves my skin feeling soft & smooth. I actually catch myself running my hand across my face because it feels so smooth. 

Do you know that reports all on the internet report that women could be absorbing up to 5lbs a year of chemicals in their bodies? It would make perfect sense, since we use skincare, masks, foundation, eye shadow, hair spray & on & on. PLUS the way we use our cleaning products (which is a different subject for a different day!)

Where do I Start my Men to get Healthier?


Where do I start my men to get healthier? One of the first things that clients ask me when they come into my office is "what is a good supplement to support good cholesterol?" or "what can I take as a good all around daily vitamin?" I want to help you get started on a couple supplements to cover as much area of your health as I can.

When they ask me those questions, I begin to tell them the usual: that I'm not a nutritionists, neither can I diagnose or claim to cure! Then we go into the conversation that one IMPORTANT thing that I've learned is, that "whatever you take, your body HAS to be able to recognize the ingredients in that supplement in order for your body to use it!" WhatEVER it is!

Before we concentrate on our TWO for this blog, I want you to understand WHY it's important to pay attention to some very important qualitites of any supplement that you take.One of the first things that I learned when being groomed for my journey of becoming a natural healthcare practitoner is, that your body HAS to be able to USE the vitamin, herb or mineral that you're putting into your system or you're just "flushing" your money down the toilett! Literally.

Think about the tablets or capsules that are full of "processed" ingredients that the body DOES NOT recognize. When the body doesn't recognize or KNOW what to do with these supplements, then it does one of two things:

1) Get rid of it or

2) Store it back "somewhere" in your body until it can get the right information as to what to do with it.

In all actuality, you could be doing more harm than good taking a load of supplements that your body has to work overtime to figure out what to do with it. That's why it's important that the cells be able to carry good ingredients through your body & put them to use in building up you up & not wasting your energy.

Did you realize that your body operates on frequencies? According to Bruce Tainio of Tainio Technology in Cheny, Washington~who developed technology that can measure these frequencies of the human body found that the human body during the day operates at an approximate frequency of 62-68 MHz. That "very common bad disease that everyone fears" (FDA Censored that word) begins at around 42Hhz. I tell you this because you want to be using supplements that have as high a frequency that you can use because if they don't then you're wasting your money!

This is why I support using supplements that are infused with Essential Oils & Wolfberry. You see? Plain dried herbs average around 12-22 Mhz. An essential oil ranges from 52-320 Mhz! So why would you NOT want to include & essential oil into your dried herbs to enhance their effectivess for the GOOD of your body. NOT side effects!

Even most medical doctors agree & recommend that a patient use a cholesterol supportive supplements, bone & joint support, Vitamin D3 and a daily multivitamin.

Here is basic examples of essential oil enhanced/infused supplements that are recommended by doctors to their patients. We just want you to get some "bang for your buck"!

ONE of your Calcium choices:

1) Super Cal: (120 count)


Has the needed & added Magnesium to it.This activateds more than 300 enzmes in the body! Also with potassium & zinc. It's infused with therapeutic grade essential oils :

Majoram-supports the cardiovascular system, muscles & bones.
WIntergreen- suppors muscles & bones
Lemongrass-supports muscles, bones, Immune system & healthy cholesterol levels
Myrtle-supports hormonal, respiratory, muscles & bones

GREAT News! Super Cal comes in at: 78Mhz! A "little higher" than our 68-72Mhz for an average healthy body~don't you think! Did you realize that the common cold hovers around 58Mhz?! Hmm…..

Men seem to be the worst about taking care of themselves! Most of the time, we women worry more about their health that they do! Another bit of good news! There is a product called:

2) Master Formula HIS: (120 Count)

Master form his
This one supports their male reproductive organs, emotional balance, immune system, nervous system, bones, joints & teeth,  too! It has your D3 (400 IU's) per dose unit:


master formula HIS
This comes in at a whopping 86Mhz! That should give him a little energy!

Well, I hope this has given you a starting place to help the men in your lives feel better. (Which automatically makes YOU feel better! *wink *wink!)

You can get these supplements HERE & purchase Retail Or Wholesale at a 24% discount AT LEAST.

Blessings to you all with Hugs & Hugs!!



Four Steps to Beating “The Blues”

Are you serious? This has happened to me? What next? Then "The Blues" set in…

I think we all have been there for one reason or another! For example, someone hurt your feelings, the job offer didn't come through or the car broke down and you don't have the funds in the bank to take care of it! The list can go on and on. 

4 Steps to Getting Out of the Blues

Let's take a look at what can cause the blues? When the immune system perceives a “shock”, it literally doesn’t know the difference between physical or emotional. The immune system is designed to protect our body from damage whatever the cause.

In the energetic health realm, you don’t know what comes first, the physical or emotional . The immune system will still turn off switches if it becomes alarmed that too much is being put on your system. It will manifest in one of two ways. Hence, physical or emotional When your “switches” have been kicked off because of that shock, then “dis-eases” will be forming in you body. Whether emotional or physical, because the immune system has to “store” it somewhere until it can determine WHERE to send it! And I don't care what situation you're in, storing clutter will suck the energy out of you! 

I don’t care who you are. We’re all susceptible to “THE BLUES”. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a man, woman, saved or unsaved. Things can be going good for you this week, but then next week…who knows?! We’re going to talk today about 4 steps to help prepare us for the bad times & controlling the blues as much as possible.

First of all, take a look around you. If there’s one thing that is consistant in life~ it is: Nothing stays the same. Life is GOING TO HAPPEN. It is a good idea to make up your mind to open up 2 emotional savings accounts. One for feast (good) & one for famine (bad)! This is just life. It’s guaranteed good things are going to come & bad things are going to come, too. The Bible tells us this in is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven”.

We don’t like to think about the hard things that we all may have to deal with. But since we will inevitably have to, we need to build ourselves up so that it won’t be such a shock on our systems when something bad happens like losing a job, losing your home or God forbid, losing someone you love. All which can easily end in what we call “The Blues”.

Here are 4 steps to help deal with “The Blues”.

1) Avoid faulty thinking & rest in God. You can’t make people do what you want them to! Only God can do that! Read Phillippians 4:8 “…whatsoever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, and of good report….think on these things. “ (Modified by me  ).

2) Know God is with you. Stay in the “now” & just take it one hour at a time to work through it. Don’t spend your time blaming other people for your problem. Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Whatever “this” is~ may not be about YOU! It may be to change something in someone else’s life! It may hurt like everything & you may just have to give it up & tell God He will have to handle it because you’re too weak. Then let Him.

3) Memorize your Bible verses ahead of time. Be prepared. This means to get your toolbox ready before the car breaks down. John 14:1 “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”

The only way we can know God is to know HIS WORD. So get in there & read your Bible! The Bible is your sword to fight our everyday battles! Don’t wish you knew what to repeat in your heart AFTER the attack has hit!

4) Don’t blame yourself for what you perceive as a “weakness” in yourself. Like:

               a) “Why am I not stronger?”
               b) “Why does it seem as if everyone else handles this better than I?”
               c) “If I have questions, then that must mean my faith is weak!”

Simply put. No. It doesn’t mean all these things! In I Kings 18, Elijah was victorious in proving that Baal was a false god! He demonstrated the boldest, wildest demonstration of impossible things while God rained down fire from heaven completely burning up a water soaked alter! Next thing you know, a little ole’ peaved Jezebel woman told him she was gonna have some big bad men find him & kill him and HE RAN FOR HIS LIFE! From HER!! NOT from hundreds of Baal prophets! Then told God to just kill him. He was tired of life!

So, don’t think that God still isn’t walking with you right by your side the whole time you’re “down in the dumps”. The promise is: “This too shall pass”. Next month or next year may be your “feast time”! Just get through your valley right now until you reach the other side!

Here is outside help with some oils that may help you reach the other side of your valley.

Oil Option #1:Young Livng Essential Oil Blend Release: Beating the Blues: Release Essential Oil

To help you to “release” the stress, drama, grief & hurt. I have also known people who use this for "supporting"  a healthy blood  pressure.Well duh, most people don't rush to work on something that's already working right. 😉

Oil Option #2: Present Time. Another YL Oil Blend to help your mind that can be stuck from things in the past~all the way to the fear of the future. May help you get back to"the here and now" so you can make sound decisions.Beat the Blues: Present Time essential oil

Oil Option #3: Lavender. An adaptogen. Which means it is used by your body to help it adapt to every situation. Very balancing energetically whether you need sleep OR whether you need an energy boost. Your body will know what to do with it!4664222439_a115102ac5_m

To review: Avoid faulty thinking, don’t blame others, memorize your Bible verses & don’t waste your time questioning your faith. Just hurry & run to The Lord! He’s always there!

Your Alternatives to Antibacterial Soaps


$5 billion of soap, bath and shower products were sold in the United States last year. According to Mintel Group a market-research company, two-thirds of these consumers were looking for anti-bacterial hand soaps.

Soaps and body washes with an “antibacterial” label may cause more harm than good. According to Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the potential risks outweigh benefits in antibacterial soaps. It continued by quoting Colleen Rogers, Ph.D, a lead microbiologist at FDA:

In fact, there currently is no evidence that over-the-counter (OTC) antibacterial soap products are any more effective at preventing illness than washing with plain soap and water. New data suggest that the risks associated with long-term, daily use may outweigh the benefits.

If you are thinking these products will keep you cleaner and reduce the risk of getting sick or passing on germs, think again!

FDA said it is not necessarily keeping you away from sickness or germs because the benefits were never proven. Antibacterial soap products contain triclosan and triclocarban. In the same FDA report, it says that laboratory studies have raised the possibility that triclosan contributes to making bacteria resistant to antibiotics. It also shows that triclosan and triclocarban will affect human hormones.

In addition, some of these cleaning products that are marketed as hand sanitizers that do not require water are heavily laden with alcohol.

Here are four alternatives if you are looking for safer way to wash and clean-

Thieves Foaming Hand Soap – cleanse, defend and condition the skin with the therapeutic-grade essential oil blend Thieves, lemon and orange essential oils, aloe, Ginkgo biloba and vitamin E. These natural ingredients won’t dry the skin.

Young Living Thieves is a proprietary blend of clove, lemon, cinnamon bark, Eucalyptus radiata and rosemary essential oils. It has been documented to be highly antibacterial and antimicrobial in nature. (Source: Reference Guide for Essential Oils).

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 5.04.37 PMThieves wipes-when you are out and about and are concern with hygiene, bring along Thieves wipes. These wipes are ideal for cleaning door handles, toilet seats and any surface. It is safe to use as a hand wipe in the kitchen, car, office, while shopping or traveling.

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 5.05.59 PM

Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier– is an all-natural hand purifier without the alcohol. It is designed to clean and refresh the hands when water is not available. Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier’s natural ingredients includes denatured ethanol (denatured with peppermint oil), water, aloe barbadensis leaf, vegetable glycerin, clove flower bud oil, lemon peel oil, cinnamon bark oil, eucalyptus radiate leaf oil, rosemary leaf oil and hydroxylpropyl cellulose.

Screen Shot 2014-06-06 at 5.07.57 PM

Lavender Foaming Hand Soap– this is a gentle cleansing soap that soothes and rejuvenates even the most sensitive skin. You only need a small amount to clean and condition your skin. Lavender foaming hand soap contains natural ingredients of lavender oil, green tea leaf extract, myrrh oil, Vitamin A, aloe vera leaf juice, lemon oil and more.

Manufacturers have until 2016 to pull all the antibacterial products from the shelves because of these reasons (Read more here)-
1.    They are no more effective in killing germs than the regular soap and water.
2.    They have the potential to create antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
3.    They may act as endocrine disruptors because triclosan will interfere with thyroid hormones, lead to infertility, artificially-advanced early puberty, cancer and obesity.
4.    May lead to developing allergies like peanut allergies and hay fever.
5.    They are bad for the environment.

War on Debt – Enemy of the American Dream

War on Debt


We’ve been self-employed for 30 years of marriage. Most people think that being self-employed means that you’re “rollin’ in the dough” & you can come & go as you please! A little slice of heaven. But what MOST people don’t know~is that when you own your own poultry farm, you’re responsible for EVERYTHING. I won’t give you a tax lesson here, but it will suffice to say, that it’s TOUGH being self-employed.

We also had 6 children-which isn’t cheap raising them, but we were still OK! We pretty much had everything mapped out for our lives. We had plans to remodel the old “homeplace” that was to be my husband’s part of the inheritance~which was ideal BUT THAT  didn’t go the way that we thought it was going to go!  So,  we ended up having to build a house for our family of 6 ~ and BAM we’re in our LATE 40’s in debt for a home!

Things have really changed in the last 4 years for us! NOT ONLY the debt of the house~ but one got her license, another her permit, one starting school in July…I probably don’t have to tell you all about this, because you may know someone with a similar story! My husband & I really don’t have THAT long until retirement coming up!

Recently I was introduced to Dani Johnson. She is a successful and sought after business trainer that went from homeless to millions. Just like you and I, she has a unique life story to tell. She overcame hardship, failure and challenges –from being broke to earning millions and impacting lives with her program – War on Debt!

She said 69% of Americans carry some type of debt every month. Debt has become the modern day slavery. Time Magazine reported that our overall debt levels rose at the fastest rate since 2007 and we are still in debt despite the economic awakening of 2008.

The Federal Reserve Bank of New York shows a $11.52 trillion consumer debt. It is increasing by the day. These debts may include mortgages, auto loans, student loans and credit card debt. The article continued by quoting that debt level increased in the last three months of 2013 by 2.1% ($241 billion).

Has it changed?

Not at all!

What are we to do about our own debt?

Dave Ramsey who has helped millions of American get out of debt said this:

Debt is so ingrained into our culture that most Americans can’t even envision a car without a payment… a house without a mortgage… a student without a loan… and credit without a card. We’ve been sold debt with such repetition and with such fervor that most folks can’t conceive of what it would be like to have NO payments.

Are you looking for ways to learn how to get out of debt?

I would like to share with you Dani Johnson’s War on Debt Home Study Program. This program comes with a workbook, audio and video that has helped thousands to pay off debt, keep track of where your money goes. It also shows you
•    Step by step instructions to bring your debt to zero
•    Shows you the difference between wise and foolish spending
•    How to control your money and direct it to the places you want it to go
•    Identify where money is wasted and use it towards paying off debt
•    How to have the mindset to fight debt

The Dani Johnson’s War on Debt Home Study Program gives us all the tools we need to gain control and be set free from the modern-day slavery.

If you are sick and tired of working hard and seeing your money disappear every month before you can even enjoy it, I want to speak with you. We can gather online or offline and learn together- on ways to eliminate debt and take charge of our hard earned money.

Either purchase the War on Debt Home Study Program at $99 or if you are in the North Carolina area join me to learn about War on Debt. You can purchase your own home study program and learn it at your own pace in your home, start your own group in your community or use it as a home education tool to teach your kids the truths about money and modern day slavery.

Spring is here & I am absolutely thrilled! It's on of my favorite times of the year. "Out with the old & in with the new." THAT is my motto! That's why I want to clean like Martha Stewart: the natural ways to spring clean your home! 


This was right outside m back door! How much cleaner can you get than right after a good rain. But have NO FEAR! We're on a mission to do this inside our homes with good ole' natural products!

I was thrilled when I discovered a free PDF on Spring Cleaning 101by Martha Stewart. Instead of showing what to use, she provides readers like you and I a checklist and tips for spring cleaning.

Why spring clean?

A report by EPA states that the average American spends about 90 percent of their time indoors. They indicated that indoor air pollutants is two to five times higher than the outside. The sources of air pollution includes wet or damp carpet, deteriorated building materials and furnishings, toxic household cleaning and maintenance products, personal care products and may I add – dust mites and dirt from the outside. (Source: EPA)

Are you ready to spring clean?

Instead of adding on to the toxic and bad indoor air quality, how about using natural ways to spring clean your home?

I have three cleaning solutions that will help you breathe and live healthier this spring:

One: Window cleaning solution
I add 1 cup of water, ¼ cup of white vinegar, 6-10 drops of grapefruit oil to a spray bottle. Spray the cleaner onto a microfiber cloth and wipe the window from top to bottom. Or spray the cleaner onto window and use the microfiber cloth to do the same.


Did you know that most household cleaners contain ammonia, formaldehyde, 2-butoxyethanol, glycol, monoethanolamine and many more chemicals that are toxic to your body?

This solution will leave your window squeaky clean and non-toxic. In fact you can eat it!

Note: Grapefruit oil can be replaced by lemon oil

Two: Most powerful all purpose household cleaner

The only thing you need to clean your house. Thieves Household Cleaner is safe and contains ingredients from renewable plant and mineral sources. It is a vegetable-based surfactant that is compliant with the Green Seal and EPA Design for Environment standards.

It is my go to cleaner for everything in my home. You can use it for degreasing, carpet cleaning, and fabric cleaning, carpet spotting, stovetop, counters, bathtub, shower stall, toilets, pots and pans, oven cleaning and more.

Here is the dilution ratio given by Young Living:
Dilution ratios: light degreasing 60:1; medium degreasing 30:1; heavy degreasing 15:1; floors 100:1; walls 30:1; upholstery, fabrics, carpet spotting 40:1; carpet 100:1; glass 320:1; pots and pans; 100:1 hand cleaner 1:1.
Notice: Before cleaning upholstery, fabric, or carpet, perform a spot test in an inconspicuous location. Discontinue use in the unlikely event of staining or skin irritation.

A testimonial on carpet cleaning:
While I shampooed the living room carpet with the dry carpet cleaning shampoo recommended for the machine we have, my son said he was feeling increasingly sick from the fumes. He left the house and I got out the Thieves Household Cleaner. The Thieves cleaned the carpet much better than the pricey, brand name cleaner and left a wonderful, fresh scent.

Old spots, which remained after repeated attempts to remove them failed, succumbed to the Thieves Household Cleaner! – Beth W.

Three: Oven Cleaning and Microwave Cleaning with Thieves Household Cleaner, baking soda and lemon oil
For extra cleaning power add lemon essential oil to your Thieves cleaning solution. To clean the oven, spray Thieves Household Cleaner onto surfaces followed by baking soda. Scrub the surface and wipe it off. Add three drops of lemon on stubborn spots. You may have to let it sit for a few minutes before wiping it off.

If you only have $60 to spend for cleaning solutions, here are three recommendations:

1.    Thieves Household Cleaner
2.    Lemon Essential Oil
3.    White vinegar
4.    Baking soda

Use either of these products alone or combined. Young Living has a few recipes for cleaning bedbugs using Thieves Household Cleaner and essential oils. Here is the link to Bedbug treatment recipes.

Kids’ Stress

It's that time again! It doesn't seem like it could be time for the kids to start back to school! KIds' Stress. This is a quote from one of my neighbor girls ("my inherited ones" as I call them):

"First day of high school. Lord help us." Lanna B. LOL! (She's so funny). But I remember being scared the first day of high school & I remember how it turned out to be a great thing!

My subject today is much more serious than kids being nervous about starting school. I want to talk today about kids in trouble. Children who literally have been~technically~abandoned or betrayed by an adult.

               three kids and pumpkins(these are my munchkins from about 5 years ago! Aww….memories…) 

(CNSNews.com) – Only 45 percent of American children have spent their childhood in an intact family, according to a survey produced by a conservative advocacy group.

Dr. Pat Fagan quotes, ""American society is dysfunctional, characterized by a faulty understanding of the male-female relationship," Fagan said in a news release. "Our culture needs a compass correction, learning again how to belong to each other when we have begotten children together."

Luke 17:2 " It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones."

I have experienced a high level of exposure this past summer of kids coming and going from my home~which to me~is a blessing. It's something that I feel like The Lord is using my home for, but here is a list of comments that I've gathered from children & their "friend's friends" in the last few years.

a) I didn't know that things (parent's behavior) would get so bad when I (the child) left

b) Yeah, my stepdad doesn't want "us" around

c) I think my parents are going to get a divorce

d) I feel "nothing" for my parent because of the way they've betrayed me for _____________. (Can be person or thing)

e) Yeah. I don't trust my parent anymore because of _____________________. (fill in the blank)

My first though is: WHAT is wrong with these people?? Why aren't they taking care of & loving their children?! This isn't natural.

WHEN did people start thinking that our children aren't valuable~ OR HUMAN?

Let me clarify what I'm NOT saying. These things are NOT abuse:

1) That kids shouldn't be made to do things that are hard

2) They shouldn't be corrected if they do things wrong

3) They shouldn't be taught that there are consequences for their choices (and let them experience it!)

4) Having a "normal" argument in front of them

I'm talking about "unnecessary" stress for our kids. Circumstances that influence (notice I didn't say guarantee) how they will become as adults.

What is unnecessary stress for our children:

a) Being used as a weapon in the war of divorce or relationships

b) Being used as a weapon in the war of divorce or relationships

c) Being used for: _______________________________________. (spite or revenge)

Fill it in.

I talked to a counselor & nurse this weekend who informed me that in their businesses, that it's a common "disconnect" between~what's supposed~ to be grown adults & their children. The nurse told me:

1) It's a common thing to see parents/ex's fighting in the same room as a 3 year old~all but stabbing each other!" In front of that child.

2) Family members to get angry with one another & call "sexual abuse" or "child abuse" to get revenge on one of the parents. Usually the man in this case. They are WILLING to subject that child to "invasive" examinations, KNOWING the whole time that child hasn't been abused. JUST FOR REVENGE!

3) Her practice has to testify, almost weekly, in a court case for children….WEEKLY.

Note: I am not referring to cases where you really DO suspect abuse.

The counselor told me it's so common for the child to feel the responsibility of taking care of the parent instead of the other way around. Feeling like it's their job to take care of the adult & "help" them not to make the "wrong" decision again.

On the flip side of using kids as a battle tool:

I have saw with my OWN eyes, people who haven't "checked" on their children in over a month! Allowed them to move in with strangers without even meeting them. In an array of different circumstances, choose OTHER people & things OVER their kids.

(IF this will help ONE situation, I will be thankful.  I'm sickened watching adults choosing their "wants" over what should be their responsibilities. Using kids as a "thing" & not as a person is wrong. If this were ME, I would feel as if I wasn't of any value to a person. Especially, if no one cared enough to even check to see if I'm OK or how I'm feeling.)

We, as Americans~ as Christians~ need to get ourselves in gear and start coaching, mentoring & praying for these adults in the range of 20-40 year olds. WE HAVE to teach them HOW to not be selfish & care for their children as much as we can get them to listen. BETTER YET! We need to let the children of these adults know that they have someone there supporting them. Letting them know that they don't have to bear this burden alone. Be there for someone. Pray for them. Offer to just sit and talk with them. Just stop & look them in the eye like they're a person! This is an epidemic.

Another angle on this is, parents & grandparents of this situation! Having to stand, watch & grieve as this happens to your own family & can't do anything about it! That is a most frusturating position to be in! Parents of grown children & grandparents have to make some HARD decisions sometimes. My heart breaks for you, too.

My advice to you is: keep yourself as healthy as you possibly can. Don't give in to the grief. You have to stay healthy & strong in order to be there! Take a moment to have some sanity time for yourself. Pray a LOT.


If I can help you  pray.  I will be happy to.

Blessings & hugs,


How NES Scans Can Benefit You

Family sitting in hammock

Things happen for a reason. NES Health came about because of Harry Massey. In 2000 he successfully healed himself from severe chronic fatigue syndrome. Mr. Massey was bedridden for seven years and had tried all sorts of conventional and alternative healing techniques.

Just like Dr. Gary Young who researched and discovered the power of essential oils for his health challenges, Harry Massey did his own research and finally found his answers when he met Peter Fraser, a scientific visionary thinker. Mr. Fraser was an acupuncture expert and had the expertise in ‘human body-field’. He had developed remedies based on this concept. Both men founded NES Health – the NES ProVision Scan and Infoceuticals.

NES is short for Nutri-Energetics System. The NES Total WellNES system is designed to read, communicate with and stimulate a change in the energy of the body. We find that NES Health has benefited clients with the following issues-

•    Stress
•    Low energy
•    Chronic fatigue syndrome
•    Fogginess
•    Sleep problems
•    Skin problems – eczema, dermatitis
•    Blocked or suppressed emotions
•    Irritable bowel movement
•    Nerve problems
•    Allergies
•    Food sensitivities
•    Chronic pain
•    Metabolic problems
•    Digestive and bowel issues
•    Hormone imbalance
•    Weight management problems
•    Blood sugar problems
•    Low immunity

The Total WellNES System may allow us to quickly restore a client’s health with the four step process of
•    (Re)Assess
•    Rejuvenate
•    Re-imprint
•    Rebuild
To effectively benefit from these processes, clients are encouraged to have ongoing refinement. Every month you will reassess the body and find out what the immediate needs are and make necessary measures to support that need. Our body systems change with the environment, the food we eat and the circumstances of life.

Here are a few testimonials taken from NESHealth’s website:

Katie S. suffered from chronic fatigue syndrome:
“Within two weeks I wasn’t tired all the time and I keep on seeing improvements every time I see my practitioner.”

John F. suffered from insomnia:
“NES is very accurate, I could feel a shift immediately. I’m a lot happier and it’s a lot more fun living my life this way.”

Ann L. suffered from high levels of stress:
“I’m normally a highly strung person but NES Health helps me to get into balance a lot more quickly. I’m not so stressed anymore. I feel comfortable now and I am a much calmer person than I used to be.”

As a trained Master NES Practitioner, I’ve done the following analysis for my clients on their first visit:
•    Energy Analysis to identify energy blockages in your body’s muscoskeletal system and energy channels.
•    Informational Assessment and Correction: Exploring your body’s entire biofield and highlighting distortions.
•    Energetic Analysis: Identifying energy blockages in the body’s systems.
•    Nutritional & Environmental Analysis: Highlighting issues in your current diet and making recommendations on supplementation.
•    Emotional and Mental Analysis: Pinpointing conflicts and developing effective resolutions.

Everyone is different and each visit is different too. We tailor-make each analysis according to your NES Scan.

If you are looking for ways to achieve wellness and health – I’m here for you. Either contact me for an office visit or send me your hair sample for a hair analysis. That’s the first step to achieving the optimum health you deserve.
