Everyone has a story, a why, a path that brought them to where they are; So here is a little about me and how I got to where I am!
I'm Lori. I'm married and have 6 children, 2 girls and 4 boys ages 27, 23, 21, 16, 12 and 10.
We live in Southern Indiana. All of my children were born here as was I and my husband. I work from home sharing ways to be toxin/chemical free, sharing healthy recipes I make for my family, sharing ways I'm healing the broken parts of me and growing as a woman and mother. I also love sharing about essential oils and I'm a Certified Integrative Health Coach -- plus I homeschool my kids and work as a DSP for my son Landon who is diagnosed with Autism.
I love to read and watch movies. Gardening is something I'm getting into and learning about as well. I have three Tower Gardens and am also doing some container gardening this year! I'm very excited about this new endeavor to grow my own food and save some money too! I love to cook and come up with new ways to make a favorite dish even better...and healthier. I'm also working on my very own recipe book!
Before I changed my lifestyle, I was really struggling to have more energy, feel good, sleep well and I had a lot of mood swings and headaches. I felt fatigued a lot and just BLAH. My kids had various issues, none serious or severe, but definitely annoying and it effected the quality of their life to some extent.
I also didn't feel like I had any purpose or direction for my life outside of raising my family -- which is very rewarding -- but I wanted something just for me, that I could feel good about, help others, contribute to my family finances and and community as well. I wanted some news goals for my life and have something to do once my kids were all grown! I was introduced to Young Living by a friend. It was the start for me -- I eventually attended online school for my health coach certification, got trained to do Raindrop Technique and also got certification as an aromatherapist. My first goal with essential oils was to help my son Landon who was suffering greatly with seasonal allergies -- it was awful! He was miserable. And we had already tried LOADS of things; None helped.
and guess what??? THEY WORKED!! I tried a combo of essential oils for him and in just a few days he was much improved and it was easy to tell he felt a lot better. I do lots of other things for him to support his body but the essential oils were the cherry on top for him! I can't imagine not having them now or what our life would be like without them or without the other changes I've made over the years. Each one added to our health and well being: body, mind and soul.
Every member of my family has benefited from the changes I've made. Healthier, sleeping better, strong immune systems, healthier than average eating habits and happy.
I can't wait to share with you over the next few weeks!! There are so many things I want to tell you!! I really can't wait to dive in! How about you?
Tell me in the comments: What is ONE health goal you hope to accomplish in the next 3 months?
