Story Kate | Our First Broken Bone

I’m in the process of getting all caught up and recapping the highlights of our last couple months, and I’m going in completely random order.

A while back, Story broke her arm on the trampoline.

The place we were referred to was lame and only had two color options for casts, so we picked light blue and then the next  morning I painted her cast sparkly purple.

My Story-girl. I am zero percent shocked that she was our first broken bone. Wild and free, that little fireball.

When we got back from the emergency room in just her temporary sling, her first words were “Can I go jump on the trampoline?” ; )

Oh man we had a broken bone this summer as well and the first thing my kid said after he ER (with a splint not a cast) was “I am going to go ride my bike” his feet don’t even touch the floor

Happy Belated 4th & Other Happenings

I fell off the blogging wagon and then the wagon basically ran me over… oops. But I’m back now, and I bring eye candy!

We had an amazing 4th of July filled with friends, fireworks, water slides, kitten chasing, buggy rides, and corresponding patriotic clothing, because #AMERICA.

Two days later, we hopped a plane to Navarre, Florida for a week in absolute paradise. Clear blue water, white sugar sand, jetskiing, paddle boarding, inflatable waterpark dominating (mostly Ty), dolphin seeing, crab eating, pina colada sipping, sandy little bottom pinching… pure goodness. It was just what we needed.

We are so blessed that Young Living has afforded us so many opportunities to travel this year! If you would have told me when we signed up that we would have hit Diamond in 10 months and been able to pay off $60,000 of adoption & NICU bills in just a handful of months, plus do all the traveling we’re able to do and give so freely to causes God has laid on our hearts, I would have thought you were crazy. I’ve said it before, but I continually stand in awe of this whole thing! Ty being home and adventuring with us 24/7 is the cherry on top! We truly want this type of freedom for everyone.

(We add about 1,000 new people to our YL team each month, and we’d love to send you some info if you are curious! Just message me via the contact tab.)

More photos from our beach trip to come in another post! We were able to have photos done by Melissa Wilson, Florida’s most talented & celebrated photographer. Huge bucket list checkoff!

Essential Oils | Medical Studies

Cool things I learned today:

The Bible references healing oils over 180 times.

People who are jazzed about essential oils besides Jesus? Doctors. Here are some medical studies on the many properties of essential oils and how they’re being used in hospitals all over the world, and in homes to prevent the onset of many types of sickness.

STUDY 1

STUDY 2

STUDY 3

STUDY 4

And obviously, these properties are just one reason to use essential oils.

Matthew 6:30: “And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?”

It makes perfect sense that God gave us what we need to heal our bodies in nature.

Something else! Essential oils are effective against some strains of illnesses that modern medicine is not.

If you’re nerdy like me and into peer-reviewed medical studies, check these out:

STUDY 1

STUDY 2

Our family uses essential oils for just about everything. We have also used them to make items that replace toxic (and known to be carcinogenic) things we were using around our home, like toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen, baby creams, cooking ingredients, dryer sheets, cleaning supplies, and the list goes on. Here’s a post I wrote outlining some of our daily essential oil use.

 

PS – How cute are the honeycomb shelves Ty built for me?
