Consistency Tips

… and $2000 in Essential oils for 5 Bucks plus a WIN RECIPE for your house

How was Easter? Do you celebrate Easter or rather Resurrection Day we like to call it in our house. Our daughter Sarah Grace’s birthday was this weekend so we had fun making the whole weekend special for her. She wanted a cake with pink flowers so against my better judgement I bought a Rainbow sprinkle cake and this chemical filled, artificially made pink cake writing stuff. Here is my results.

Vomit

You can laugh at my art work if you want. The cake was over the top sweet and she couldn’t even finish one piece. My son on the other hand had too many pieces and the next morning woke up with an awful belly ache. He was really hurting so I rubbed some of my natural remedies on his belly which helped a little bit, then he was really hurting so I gave him a capsule full of my natural remedies and within 10 minutes he threw up once. Within 30 minutes no more stomach pain and 3 hours later he was out riding his bike and back to his old cheerful self. Puke gets a bad rap but I think it is the body’s way of getting rid of poisons. I believe my capsule of natural remedy helped the body wake up to what it had to do.

$2000 in Essential oils for 5 Dollars

Sounds too good to be true, but that is only because of two amazing women. Kathy Kouwe and Regina Pruitt. Kathy donated some very rare and precious Out of Stock Essential oil Kits to Regina Pruitt’s fundraiser. Regina has lived a miralce life with Cystic Fibrosis for 40 plus years and now is ready for a lung transplant.

BOOTCAMP – Life, Business, Health, Homeschool

This week starts the beginning of my Homeschool Bootcamp. I am grateful for this inexpensive resource. I really struggle with consistency in many areas of my life. My business practices, my health habits, parenting, and now homeschool. I am a good starter, get a plan, even organize and then something happens to get me off track and boom I am behind, off course, or feeling too overwhelmed to do anything. Does that happen to you? Or do you get distracted by the next new shiny business program or trainer, new curriculum, new eating plan and never do anything enough to see if it will work. Here is my tip to you from this week’s Bootcamp Message:

“Until you have tried something consistently for a period of time in a consistent way you have no idea if it works….. “

Consistency and sticking to it will allow you to gather enough data not only to see if something works but to solve problems too.

HOMEWORK THIS WEEK:

Pick one thing from one area you struggle in and do it consistently all week. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Health:
    • Drink ________ oz of water every day.
    • Walk 15 minutes everyday.
    • Bring your lunch everyday this week.
    • Diffuse and breathe in your favorite Essential oils 15 minutes a day.
  • Work/Business:
    • Eat the Frog and do the one thing on your TO DO List that is the hardest.
    • Set your work hours this week and stick to them.
  • Finances:
    • Do a menu plan for the week and grocery shop those foods only.
    • Skip getting coffee, sodas, or drinks this week.
    • Have a budget meeting with your spouse or loved one this week.
  • Parenting or Homeschooling:
    • Smile at your kids a lot this week even when they frustrate you.
    • Encourage your kids 10 times more than you correct them.
    • Speak words of LIFE over them daily… (even if those things are not true yet) YOU ARE BRILLIANT READER, YOU ARE SO KIND, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD, GOD MADE YOU SPECIAL

Now remember pick one thing… don’t overwhelm yourself. Just one DO-ABLE thing this week and let me know what it is in the comments.

RECIPE of the WEEK

If you follow me on Instagram drmarystarr you might be able to tell I like to cook. I do my best to cook healthier options and get my kids involved too. This week we had a epic Failure of gluten free Bananna Bread (which still got eaten) and an EPIC WIN.

Here is the WIN Recipe Video it’s a Delicious Egg Frittata (which is like a quiche without the crust)

The actual recipe and measurements will be in the Description of the Video. I used Chicken Sausage and it was great. Also go light on the Basil if you have kids, it’s a bit spicy!

Here is mine:

Spiritual Life

Lastly let’s talk about your Spiritual Life. How is yours? Do you have one just on the weekends but the rest of the week forget about it?

This Easter Sunday we went to our new church we finally decided on here in Silicon Valley. We have been attending regularly for about a month and God has really spoke wisdom to us each week. This week we were shoved into the pews as our church was maxed out with people. About 30% of those attending were here on this special and important Holiday. But I also felt something else in my spirit. I also felt that many are searching for something greater than themselves. In an area of the world where some of the smartest, wealthiest, and most successful people live these individuals are recognizing that they will never be enough. They will never have enough, be successful enough, give enough to be fulfilled. Because true Joy, PEACE and FULFILLMENT don’t come from our WORKS but from our Father in Heaven.

Are you searching for that Peace, Joy and Fulfillment in your life? What if I told you that all those are possible to have in your life no matter what your life circumstances are. It’s true… You might enjoy this message from the New Year by Steven Furtick http://elevationchurch.org/sermons/good-morning-midnight/

Word of God Weekly Verses

I would like to start learning a Bible Verse weekly because I know the power of these words especially when spoken and prayed. They give us life, protection, healing and so much more. Even when we don’t believe in our conscious minds yet for something like healing, peace, restoration just praying/saying the Words can change and ReNEW your mind, heart, and life. So here is this weeks. Print it out, write it on sticky notes, write it with dry erase markers on your mirrors.

This verse is said a lot of different ways depending on what version of the bible you read. I am going to keep things simple for me and my kids to remember. You do what is best for you.

“The Lord is my Strength, my Shield from every danger. I trust in Him with all my Heart”
Psalm 28:7 (NLT)

I pray that you have an amazing week, month and year. Until we talk again you are in my prayers. God bless you mightily;

Creative Fundraising With Young Living: Fundraiser for Payton

creative fundraising with young living

I want to give a shout out to my friend and colleague Christi Daugherty. Christi is a wonderful person and friend and I am so proud of her on how she is handling a very stressful time in her life. Her son Payton was just recently diagnosed with a very serious condition in which he will be needing surgery several states away.

The family is blessed to have insurance but not with extra funds for travel and lodging for that long of a stay. She, in her resourcefulness, put up a page to help raise money but at the same time staying in her mission of health. Please visit her page to learn more and donate if you feel led to: http://misschristi.com/fundraiser/
So many times when someone is ill and doesn’t have insurance or the funds for treatments their friends and family resort to fundraisers including Spaghetti Dinners, Lotteries, Silent Auctions, etc.  Those things are fine but they usually will raise money only for a short period of time.  Many cancer patients and those struggling with CHRONIC DISEASE without insurance will usually have some lifelong financial struggles. What if there was a fundraiser that could provide income for a person for years or decades? I believe there is.

Every time I see one of these fundraisers I think what if we could start a Young Living Home Business for this person. Instead of a Spaghetti Dinner it’s a GIANT Young Living Introduction Party or PARTIES… There are still some Silent Auctions, Giveaways etc. but at the event everyone learns about some Young Living products and has 3 opportunities.

1) Purchase something at Retail and the fundraiser recipient will receive the 24% commission.

2) Get a Wholesale Membership account with the Premium Start Living Kit and those who order get over $300 worth of product for $150 and the recipient will earn $50 from that purchase.

3) Get a Membership and Enroll in the Essential Rewards. Those who want to help their friend or family member can choose some health products they personally can use or they want to donate to the recipient every month and the recipient will earn anywhere between 8-25% of the orders.

I mean seriously if you think of the hundreds of people who usually want to support their friend if only a dozen of them fell in love with Young Living, got some results from the products, used them every month like option #3 that could mean more than a couple hundred dollars MONTHLY for the fundraiser recipient. If 40 or more ordered Young Living consistently every month that could mean up to $1000 of extra monthly income.

My point is that Young Living has health products that can help a person struggling with chronic illness and they have an income opportunity to pay for their needed therapies. I strongly believe we need to open up our minds to this process of helping people more than a day, a week or several months but for a lifetime. I believe if structured correcting and presented correctly Young Living could be an answer to financial challenges and health challenges.

Let me know what you think.
