About Me

I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ first and foremost.  After that, I am a daughter, wife and mother of three beautiful children. 

As an individual I love to get lost in a good book, especially Biblical books, Christian fiction and prophecy.  I LOVE the great outdoors and could go hiking or fishing all day long, but since I live in a concrete jungle I throw myself in growing our own food in our little backyard garden.  I have always had a passion for science and seeing the connections of that science and biology to our Lord.  One of the ways I get to enjoy science and biology on a daily basis is in the amazing chemistry of Young Living Essential Oils.  I could talk about the oils and God's amazing goodness through them All Day Long!

As a mother I have enjoyed homebirth, cloth diapering, using baby slings, making homemade baby food and even homeschooling!  Our life at home is a continual learning and growing process that we get to explore together.

My journey of life began when I was born, but my journey to health truly began when I survived Guillain-Barre' Syndrome and even more when I had my own children.

I would like to take just a moment to share my story about how my family and I got started with Young Living Essential Oils.

At the age of 19 I found myself in a very unexpected battle for my life, and that experience has helped to take me on a journey to health and wellness.  Young Living is just one of the God given gifts I have found along that path, and I am so grateful to have the oils today.

What happened?  Well, at the age of 19, I woke up one morning paralyzed; completely unable to move.  My health quickly spiraled downhill, and by the time I was finally properly diagnosed with Guillain-Barre’ Syndrome, I had lost almost 30 pounds and was in a wheelchair.  Although I did not have the oils until the end of the healing process from that battle, God DID heal me completely, and today I am a strong and healthy wife, mother, daughter and friend.

Even though I was supposedly ‘healthy’ before that journey; the syndrome and healing process did take me on a quest to find ways to build up my body, remove toxins from my life and to seek God in every situation.
Later, as my husband and I found ourselves expecting our first child, we wanted to give her the best start to life we could, and in my opinion that meant eliminating as many toxins from our home as possible.  That is when I was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils.  A family friend gave me some sample oils and the Gentle Babies book by Debra Raybern as a baby shower gift.  I devoured the book and found a home party as fast as I could in order to learn more.  I bought a starter kit that day, and have never looked back.

Today my husband and I have three kids, and all five of us love the oils so much that we use them daily.  Even the kids know what oils to use when!  We even use the oil infused products (like shampoo, toothpaste, bar soap, lotion, ART face care, hand sanitizer and much more) instead of store bought and over-the-counter options that often contain harsh chemicals.

Today we live a life full of joy and abundance, thanks to the Lord, and to Young Living Essential Oils.  Once you try the oils, I think you will be amazed by them too!  So go sign up today by clicking HERE; then contact me to schedule a home party, FaceBook party, webinar or other oils class so you too can’ Share the Health’.



By-the-way, if you are looking for insurance and you live in the Greater Houston, Texas or Katy area, give my husband Wayne a call.  He is the best agent ever!  www.sherwoodinsagency.com

    1. Hey Cyria, Yes, this blog is still up, but I go through waves of posting and not doing anything. It is more for fun and sharing info than anything else. At the bottom of each blog post you will see a small grey strip that contains a pencil icon. To the right of the pencil icon and to the left of the G+1 icon you will see the small p with a circle around it. It is grey in color, but that is the pinterest icon. It should work, so let me know if you have any trouble using it.
