I have taken a long time off from blogging…. that happens in the world of Autism. Life is busy. Lack of Sleep Exhausts you. IEP Meetings Consumes you. Therapy. Advocacy. And, Oh, the list goes on…… But some amazing things have happened I want to share and I am feeling a huge pull to start writing again. So I am back!!
I want more than anything to help inspire other families on the autism spectrum to know there is hope!! That was why I started this blog in the first place. (Aside it was free therapy in those early years….)
I have been all about Natural Approaches to health and wellness… and of course AUTISM. And One of the things I have been really embraced over the years is the integration of Young Living Essential Oils into my home and with my daughters on the Autism Spectrum (classic infantile autism and aspergers)… what an amazing journey this has been!!
It has been 1 week since I came home from the Young Living Convention in Utah… and I am still on a high!!! For those of you who don’t follow me on facebook… Over the past year I have been collaborating with the founder of Young Living, Gary Young, about autism!! (Amazing, huh!?!?)
Last year he heard about our story through the YL grapevine and called ME (wow) and asked what I needed… I told him to help to me help Sahara and we would take the information to the masses and help other kids on the spectrum!! And he said OKAY.
So, Over the year I have gained so much respect for Gary and his team.. their brilliance, compassion and dedication not just to Essential Oils… but to the Autism Community… My Community… My Daughters’ Community!! And that means more than anything!!!
This past year has been the year of milestones for autism in our home… we were on essential oil blends that Gary specifically blended for Sahara … they were not yet available to the public. I kept it quiet partly because I felt bad we had something others couldn’t access.. but now you can!!
I swear I want to go on roof tops and tell everyone what these oils have done for us…. and other kiddos who were able to also try these oils over the past year!!!
Last week, I told 9,000 people at the YL International Convention our Autism and YL story… I guess that is a good start!!! I cannot wait until Sahara is old enough to understand how she has impacted this community and how that is going to ripple out to the masses!!
I am so excited that the RECONNECT COLLECTION was released at convention and now everyone can have access to the oils we are using!! God is so Good and has definitely had a hand in this journey… I am so full of gratitude. I know we have a long way to go… but we are on the right path!!! xxoo
It feels good to be back!!
Next Post… What is this Reconnect Collection and How can it Help your Family too!!
