I joke all the time that by the time my five kids are grown and out of the house, I might have a future in medicine since I already have so much real-life experience. Keeping my family healthy is important for every mom. I love sharing what we do in our house to stay healthy. I will admit, I'm an essential oil enthusiast. Yes, I drank the oil infused Kool-Aid and now am hooked. So, I love talking about how I use oils in my home and in my recipes.
Your Health is Important, Too!
My health is integral to the health of my family. I've been so convicted of this over the years. You've probably seen this acronym before:
JOY = Jesus & Others & Yourself
As much as I believe that we experience more joy when we don't keep ourselves as our primary focus, I also believe that keeping myself healthy helps me to serve others better. When we put ourselves last in every area of life, then we risk poor health, depression, and frustration. I will say that I do believe that this J.O.Y. acronym is right. But we often get stuck on the “O” and forget to ever get to the “Y.”
As we've grown our family — and the fact that I had my last two babies in my late thirties — I've had renewed enthusiasm for getting healthy and staying healthy. Coupled with the fact that we had a really hard summer in 2016 with lots of health issues with our parents. It made me want to do all I can now to have a healthier future with my family — and their kids.
What This Looks Like…
Well, I'm making healthier choices for our whole family and our environment. Personally, I know this starts with losing the weight that has been creeping on. So, I'm using a program called Optavia (formerly called Take Shape for Life) to get the weight off. I'm also using Young Living essential oils and essential oil products to enhance our health more naturally. So, I share these things here and there online.

I'm just crazy about my new weight loss program, Optavia (formerly known as Take Shape for Life). So, excited that I'm doing a weight loss series on YouTube. I'll be setting up a page with all the details on the program soon. I'm actually a coach for the program now. If you are interested in learning more about the program and getting my new Simply Joyful Health book, then you can sign up below and I'll send you more information.
As I already mentioned, I LOVE essential oils. It took me a while to figure out how to do more than just put them in a diffuser. I share my everyday tips for essential oils in my Best Everyday Uses for Essential Oils book. If you are interested in using essential oils, it's a great resource. Sign-up below and join my Essential Oil Journey community. I try to share what I'm using and how I'm using it — and I keep you up-to-date on sales that Young Living is having.
