Yes, this is a weight loss journey, but even more importantly, this is a journey of faith and spirituality. We are all on a spiritual journey and that looks different for different people. I personally believe that God created the heavens and the earth, and sent His Son Jesus to be our savior from our sin, which separates us from God. My faith (complete trust or confidence in someone or something) is in God.
That being said, I stopped working as a nurse and began my essential oil business on a huge leap of faith. I didn't leap before I did some research, though. I researched the Young Living company and other companies that sell essential oils. I also researched this with God. I did a whole lot of praying about this big life shift. I asked that doors be opened for me that I am to walk through, and that doors be decidedly closed for me that I should not walk through (I pray that one daily). Let me tell you, that's a good one. I have clearly seen which doors are closed for me lately. I was very fortunate during this business-beginning process to have found a completely awesome tool called 21 Days of Prayer for Your Business. Oh. My. Goodness. The series was so incredibly helpful. I was able to take a deep look at my faith journey and learn how to best proceed on my business journey. I encourage you to go through these videos as well! There is a workbook that goes along with the series, but the author, Monique McLean, always says that if you don't have the book, just grab a notebook and pen. I read through my notes of this series daily during my prayer time.
One of the topics in the 21 days is "Be Still". It is so important to spend that quiet time with God. I have put together a cozy "prayer nook" on the 3rd floor of the house. This floor used to be an attic back in the day (I live in a circa 1910 farmhouse), but I affectionately refer to it as "hippie heaven" now..haha. In the prayer nook, I have a couple of nice, big beanbag chairs, a couple of small stands, a prayer board so I remember who all I need to pray for (plus to physically mark off requests as they are answered), and a few bibles. Well, I also a lava lamp, a 70's tablecloth, a 70's rug, and some other cute décor. Have to have my flair going on in the prayer area too! If I can pray for anything specific for you, please let me know! You can fill out the contact form on this site and I will absolutely pray for you!
