Love not in words but in actions and ...

Love not in words but in actions and truth. 

All summer our family focus has been “love is an action word”. I really had in mind stopping the bickering between the children. Then, when I ran across this meme the Lord convicted me how easy it is to say things and much harder to live them out.   Listen without interrupting. Proverbs 18 Speak without […]

Karate kids and Nana

Karate kids and Nana

I never imagined that I would start learning karate when I am well settled into my 40s. Just never saw that one coming. I am not in shape (evidenced by my noodle arms). I have been sick for the last 8.5 years. Not like a little sick…more like “I am seriously struggling to live and […]

My husband left: a lesson in prioriti...

My husband left: a lesson in priorities

The title is a little too dramatic. He left on a 12 hour trip to pick up a new truck. Well “new to us”. He milked early this morning and quickly had to leave so he can be back before milking tomorrow morning. I hate when he’s gone.   Every time we are separated by any […]

I Can’t See Where I’m Goi...


I have lived through various seasons and trials in life. Sometimes you can see the end result like finishing college or birthing the baby. This weekend, my life took an unexpected path… I do not know where it leads. It’s a bit scary.

Winter wonderland


Today we got to go sledding with our good friends. Everyone had such a great time. Afterwards we had hot cocoa and chili. Then we played to the very last minute before we had to leave. These are the moments we remember for years to come!

The struggle you are in today…

The struggle you are in today…

Friends, we all have struggles, difficulties, problems, hardships, in life. All of us do. One time I was informed by a friend that “If I had everything handed to me on a silver platter like you did then I would be just fine, too.” But the reality is that money does not make any difference […]

Live in Peace

Live in Peace

It is strange but I do not remember bickering incessantly with my younger brothers. It was easy to live in peace. I was right; they were wrong. I don’t remember arguing the details with them. I bet they had different memories of a bossy older sister though.  Earlier this year, our 12 year old son […]

Trials and Blessings in Our Everyday ...

trials and blessings

Have you ever read the book of Job in the Bible? His story is of trials and blessings. He suffered greatly with one trial, then another, then another, then another, then… you get the drift. It was the devil’s attempt to get him to turn his heart from and blame God for all his problems. […]

Boosting immune system

Boosting immune system

One of the really cool ways that we use the essential oil’s is on the feet. The pores on the feet are quite large and so it is especially easy for essential oils to enter the body. According to everything I’ve read, it takes 20 minutes for the oils on the feet to be everywhere […]

Unwelcome company lurking around my h...


I would love to be a great housekeeper. I am not. Never have been. Several years ago, my husband was bit by a brown recluse spider. It was a wild adventure that propelled us into a new business helping others get started with essential oils.  Along the way, we learned brown recluse spiders like quiet […]

Last two UNINTENTIONAL days in Texas

Now that the convention was over, we did a big of shopping and site seeing and we headed back to the hotel for our early morning departure (4 am) when the car stopped running. Literally 1/2 mile from the convention center (not even out of the driveway technically).   Naturally it was on a curve inthe […]

Convention Days Three and Four


We had such a great start we were eager to see what the days ahead would bring.  First, a tribute to all the different countries present.  Then Mary Young, CEO of Young Living, sang the national anthem.        Then, finally I got to hear Gary Young, founder of Young Living speak. I was eager […]

Convention arrival 

Convention arrival 

Our trip was almost uneventful. We had to tend to the car rather specially to keep it running smooth but that was a minor glitch. We checked into the hotel And realized I forgot a big with the diffuser cord, my toothbrush and other items! Disappointment! We then set out to adventure. We wanted to […]

How feeding calves reflects family me...

Every visitor enjoys watching them when they are here. Likewise, mealtime at your home should be a wonderful event that all look forward to. There […]
