Well Hello, Gorgeous New Premium Starter Kit

new-box-psk (1)

When I first signed up with Young Living essential oils, I didn’t know they would impact our family’s lives so significantly. I remember opening my box of oils with some excitement and anticipation, but mostly just confusion on where to start and what in the world to do with them. I remember passing them around the dinner table for the boys to smell (they were not so impressed) and trying to figure out what a diffuser was and why I could want to use it.

Fast forward over a year later, we use Young Living essential oils every single day. We take them with us on trips and when we are out and about. My boys use them without hesitation.  My husband the naysayer uses them and tell his buddies about them. We love that they’ve helped support every system in our bodies, and feel significantly better than we did over a year ago.

I’ve loved learning more of the science and studies behind why they work, becoming all the more confident in the brand of Young Living and their outstanding quality and standards, and most of all hearing how they’ve helped others.

I just can’t imagine NOT sharing them when they’ve done so much in our lives and so many others that I know.

Especially now. 

Because it just got SWEETER.

A New Beutiful Line-up

Young Living JUST updated the Premium Starter Kit with 3 new oils, new diffuser options, and with a GORGEOUS new look.

I think you could almost justify just buying it for the pretty factor, but it’s so much more than just the beauty. 

The three new oils in the kit are 3 of my absolute favorites DiGize, R.C., and Copaiba. DiGize goes with us wherever our tummies go. R.C. helps support the little dudes respiratory systems, and Copaiba is one of our favorites to add to other oils to intensify their qualities. And because you can’t mass manufacture plants and because Young Living has stayed true to their quality and integrity of their products, there are new flex oils that can be substituted when/if there is an oil unavailable due to plant constraints (Orange, Lemongrass, AromaEase, Tea Tree, and Citrus Fresh). I love that Young Living doesn’t ever sacrifice quality over production demands – especially when their growth is off the charts! (Over 100,000 new sign-ups in one month!) 

And they’ve kept the ones I go back to time and time again: Peppermint, Lemon, Lavender, Panaway, Thieves, Purification, Frankincense, and Stress-Away.

I couldn’t have picked a better line up if they would have asked me! (Which is why I purchased a new kit myself!)

Summer Beginnings



We are just a little over a week into summer and it already feels so full. We finished up soccer on Saturday and baseball last night with a disappointing loss in the tournament. The boys have been attending a Bible school this week in the mornings.  My dad is making a fantastic recovery from his knee-replacement and will most likely be released from the nursing facility this week! A HUGE praise! 

In the midst of a busy season of serving my parents {what a joy it has been to have them in our town}, we’ve managed to have pool parties, pick 10 lbs. of strawberries, consume plenty of ice cream, and enjoy a house full of ruckus once again!

Usually if I’m quiet it’s a reflection of a struggle, but this time I assure you all is well. Sure we are trying to find our stride in the busyness of this beginning, but it’s been full of good things. We’ll figure out how to juggle our work from home responsibilities and making the most of these summer days with our eight year olds in due time.

It’s going to be a celebration to get my dad home, but we will greatly miss my mom living with us, and our daily visits with my dad. I’m so thankful for precious time with them, and this time for the boys to spend loving on them. It’s truly been a gift rather than a burden. Brad has been such an advocate for my parents and willing to serve in every area – I’m so thankful for his leadership and willingness to serve my parents like they are his own.

It’s been a beautiful opportunity for our boys to see my parents faithfulness to each other and how they love each other so well. Hopefully it will impress their hearts on how to serve us one day if that’s ever a need.

Our plans for the summer are for the simple pleasures – pool days, stacks of library books, snow cones, hitting some trails, a canoe trip, lazy pajama mornings, and other outdoor adventures.

On The Last Day of School Eve…


It’s the day before the last day of school, and like many mamas it’s with mixed emotions. They have had SUCH an incredible year and I honestly wouldn’t change a thing! (Okay so in the perfect world I would have no homework.)

Overall, their teacher couldn’t have been a better match, their classmates have become their closest friends, and their school has been a phenomenal fit.

To go from getting ready to homeschool another year to enrolling them in a private school the day before the first day of school, it’s hard to believe it’s coming to a close.

It’s been so good for us (Brad and I) and for them.

It’s almost been so good that I don’t want it to end. 

These boys have grown up so much this year. They’ve become better students, but better people too. They’re leaders in their classroom and instead of wanting to separate them in different classrooms, we’ve gotten tons of comments about how they are independent yet do exceptionally well together. Keeping them together is what they actually recommended for next year. (This is absolute opposite of most educational opinions to always separate multiples. I’m so thankful that our school agreed to try it out this year and look at them as individuals not as statistics.) 

I’m looking forward to the BEST SUMMER EVER with these little men!  The house will be much more boisterous and rowdy with them back, but that’s what the backdoor is for. Can I get an Amen, Mamas? 

Sing with me (Teachers Sing it Loudest)…
