I met a Quintessential Woman last week. She is an embodied Jewish Priestess who exudes joy, grace, mirth. She lives and breathes her faith without pretentiousness. Her faith is her life; her life is her faith. She carries out her best practices without any show or need for attention. In fact, if I didn’t know what she was doing softly in the background, it would not be obvious she was doing anything. I believe most people didn’t even notice her actions.
I even heard her daughter ask her ‘mama, would you bless me?”
I didn’t even have time to ask her what that meant? Is it a daily practice for a Jewish Mama Priestess to bless her children?
How utterly delightful. And holy.
The world needs more women like this.
There were other women there who were the exact opposite — forcing their faith on the group as a whole. At the very least it was inappropriate. At the most …. well, I have lots of...
I met Young Living Essential Oils about 20 years ago at an outdoor wedding at a park near a city lake. A little bottle was passed around the group — there were just a handful gathered — not more than 20 people or so. I recall asking what is this, but I don’t recall the answer.
Shortly after that I attended a Women’s Expo in downtown Minneapolis. Cherie Ross had a double booth at the end of a row. I remember being intrigued and somewhat mesmerized by all the different things. I stood looking at all the tiny bottles and she said “Go ahead. You can choose one and try it.” Well, I had no idea which way to turn or how to make a decision. In the end she suggested White Angelica.
I recognized the yummy-ness of it immediately because it was the same essential oil blend that had been passed around at the wedding.
I was hooked, although I didn’t know it yet.
I still have my first order copy.
What I remember most about Gary Young is how he made science...
