  • What happened after they sat down ROCKED my life & is one of the greatest examples of gratitude I’ve ever seen:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
After a dinner in a town in Rwanda, Africa we gathered our left over beans & rice. We found a group of street children near the restaurant asking for food. As we handed over our leftovers, the group of children sat down in a circle. These kids, in dirty clothes, who lived on the street, who were very hungry, I imagined would devour the food. I thought they might get in a fight of who could have more. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But as they sat on the dirty street, about to eat someone’s leftovers, with dirty hands (no utensils), what they did next forever has changed my life & perspective. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The oldest boy (who didn’t look any older than 13) folded his hands & bowed his head. All the other children in the circle followed his lead as he lead a prayer giving thanks to God for the meal they were about to eat. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Thankfulness. Gratitude. To God. Giving Him thanks for His goodness. WOW. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
How many times have I been quick to complain. To think about what I don’t have. To look at what the situation is missing. But every time I think of these children, my heart & perspective are forever changed. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
They had a choice. They could have dug in, fought over the food, been ungrateful. But these kids knew a secret that many don’t. Although certain circumstance in our lives may not be what we would choose, we can ALWAYS have the ability to choose gratitude. NO ONE & NO circumstance can take the choice away from us. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And when we choose to give thanks, our outlook on life changes. Joy fills our hearts. We begin to see the good & light even in undesirable circumstance. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
God calls us to: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances.” 1 Thes. 5:16-18. So let’s honor these kids today & follow their example. Let’s give thanks for each thing & situation that comes our way today. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
What’s something you are inspired by about these Rwandan children? Love hearing from you!

  • 16 years ago this morning I lost the best man I ever knew. Not a single day goes by I don’t think of him still.  My own kids don’t really remember much about him, and that definitely adds to my sorrow. 😢  But even still ... God is good!! 🙌🏻 I know that today my dad is in heaven, AND, while my kids may not have had my dad around growing up, they certainly have had another extremely wonderful and very involved grandad (my FIL), who really has done the job of 2 grandads, and become a father figure to me. 💙💙 #thankfulandblessed #daddysgirl

  • Living in this boy world that I’m in definitely makes me appreciate girl time when I get a chance to hang out with friends. 💕But I am always glad to come back home to my awesome guys! There’s no way I could have made my trip to Michigan this weekend without this man. He is such an incredible dad to our boys and he is my number one fan and supporter! I am forever grateful for his encouragement and for the way he pushes me to believe in myself when I begin to doubt. ❤️

  • Recipe - Day 16 of #30daysofthankfulness 
Yummy breakfast!

Recipe: 
1/2 cup of Einkorn flakes cooked in 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup almond milk. 
Mash 1/2 a banana in bowl and mix together with 1Tbs. Almond Butter.
Add the cooked Einkornmeal plus 7 drops Stevia(or to taste). Slice the rest of the banana on top. Add some unsweetened coconut flakes and a couple tablespoons of Almond milk. Enjoy!

Oh yeah, make a Almond milk latte with a drop of Peppermint Vitality while the Einkorn flakes are cooking. 😃

  • Have you ever wanted to be your own boss?
• 
I think a lot of people wish for this. They feel like if it were possible to do something they loved, work when and where they wanted to that would be ideal...but few are brave enough to give it a try.
•
If you are one of the brave ones... hats off to you🙌🏼. If you are brave but just haven’t taken the leap yet, or are looking for the right opportunity... good for you! • 
Don’t just sit there dreaming though.  Eventually you have to get up and put those dreams to work.
•
Being your own boss is tough sometimes, no one is there telling you, “Hey, get back to work.” You have to want success bad enough to teach your self discipline, to grow your skills in all the areas your business requires, to work when it’s not fun, when it’s hard, when it’s frustrating (yup, cookie coating coming off y’all)... but you know what makes a true entrepreneur persist through all of that? They know it’s worth the effort.  They have a vision of what being their own boss can do for them, their family, the causes they are passionate about.
•

Fun fact I have personally had 2 other businesses before I started with Rodan and Fields. Those experiences taught me lessons that I’m grateful for. I didn’t just give up on being an entrepreneur because those 2 business were not all I wanted them to be...I took what I learned and tried again. So glad I did.
•
Maybe you have been an entrepreneur and it didn’t turn out so well the first time, or you are ready to give it your first go. Either way I would be honored to help you.
•
We are in business for ourselves but not by ourselves...I have got an amazing team of ladies that encourage, help, train, and pray for each other. If that sounds like something you want more information on just DM me. 
No pressure, just info.

I am grateful for so many things, but this week I am feeling extra thankful for dōTERRA.

I am also grateful for the sweet, kind, and loving people that are now part my my life because of this company. I am grateful that each day I have an opportunity to help others, to live healthier and happier lives. dōTERRA is a beautiful company and I am so grateful!
