I am writing this blog post to set the record straight because too many are giving credit to the wrong things for the freedom they receive.
It is NOT the network marketing model of doing business (though it’s certainly an amazing model) nor is it the company with which we choose to affiliate ourselves (though we MUST choose that
company wisely) that grants us that freedom we all desire.These things are only vehicles that God may choose to use to grant us personal freedom, time freedom and financial freedom, though He may choose another route all together if he sees that our trust
is placed in the wrong things, not in Him.
In the end, all the credit, all the honor, MUST go to God, not to ourselves,nor our team members, nor the “universe",
for the freedom we receive from humbly following the plan Christ has revealed to us, without ever quitting the journey. He is the one who grants us true personal freedom, time freedom, and financial freedom
(meaning we no longer need to trade our time for money; we will not have to worry about where money will come to pay our monthly bills ever again). It clearly states in Deutoronomy 8 that it is God who grants us the ability to produce wealth (v. 18). I encourage
you to read that entire chapter.
I'd like to tell you my personal story.
God granted me time freedom back in May of 2002 when I got remarried. I had a two-year-old boy at the time, and when He granted me this freedom,
He also gave me the responsibility to care for my husband's two boys (who were 9 and 11 at the time). As I learned to take proper care of all the household affairs, God started molding me into the leader He wanted me to be. I've been a work in progress ever
since then and, though I'm not a "perfect person" or leader by any means, God has granted me that personal freedom I needed in order to walk confidently by faith, regardless
of what my team members did in the network marketing company He wanted me to be affiliated with as a business leader. He has been my support as the challenges have arised; He has empowered me to keep going, following HIS simple plan of action that involves
simply living a healthy lifestyle and swapping out many of the products we use at home with products that Young Living offers.
God granted me financial freedom by trusting Him to provide work to my husband as he set out on faith to build his own plumbing, heating and air conditioning company in 2007. Never has he
lacked work, and he can choose not to work on the evening or the weekends. We have always had enough money to pay the bills and even go on family vacations to places like Europe (Latvia and England), Colombia, and Hawaii, as well as to visit family in Maine
and in Colorado. We have even paid off our home; we did so about a month before my husband turned 50, so about 6 years ago.
will grant financial freedom to my husband as well, but at the "appointed time", since he does not have any belief in the network marketing model of business and, sadly, mocks those of us who invest in it, though he has never stopped
me from investing into it since he sees that the products are excellent and help keep us health physically, mentally and emotionally. God will one day show him (and all the others who don't believe) that HIS way of doing things works that He alone will keep
His promises and the money will flow like never before, without him having to work so hard every day to provide money for his family.
I trust God's timing! I trust God's plan.
All honor and glory goes only to God for the freedom I have recieved. Once the money starts flowing in from Young Living,
when He rises me to the highest rank of leadership (Royal Crown Diamond), most of the money will go to cover the expenses of the "Blissful Have" project, a vision that He has placed on my heart to bless many, not just my family. I will simply continue to follow
His simple plan of action - living a healthy lifestyle by following 10 healthy lifestyle tips, using many of Young Living's products in my daily life, and sharing about Young Living and this simple
plan of action with others around the world, via social media. It is an amazingly peaceful way to live.
