On November 20, 2009, I attended a class in Arapaho, Oklahoma, where I learned about Young Living Essential Oils. I received a Raindrop that day. Y’all!!! It changed my life!
In July, 2010, we made the decision to eliminate grains and sugar from our table. November, 2010, was our first sugar free Thanksgiving. I must admit the pies were rather experimental that first year and we had some texture issues although they tasted great.
Over the past 9 years, we have ditched candles and cleaning products and replaced them with diffusers and the Young Living Thieves line of cleaners. We switched to YL shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, mouthwash, skin care, and well, everything Young Living! It was a gradual process, but we use it all.
We have felt better and our home is cleaner and smells wonderful! Our young adult children are all members of Young Living and have transitioned their homes, too. Our grandbabies are oily babies and they are adorable and healthy!
The turkey is in the oven as I type and the pies, which now have good texture and taste good are waiting for the crowd. This is our 9th sugar free Thanksgiving. My husband proclaimed my cooking good as he ate a sugar free coconut cream pie last night.
I am stronger and healthier now than I was in my 40s! God has blessed our efforts to clean up our “temple” and our home.
I am thankful for my relationship with Christ!
I am thankful for my family and our overall great health.
I am thankful for my church family.
I am thankful for every single person in my Young Living team.
I am thankful for each of you who read my blog.
I am thankful for beautiful weather today.
I am thankful for the Godly heritage and history of our nation.
I am thankful we are still free and can have this day to ponder all of the LORD’s blessings!
