We’re all struggling

Hi, my name is Brently and I miss people😭⁣⁣I haven’t posted anything really in regards to COVID-19. Partially because it still doesn’t seem real. Partially because it’s affected me more than I care to admit. ⁣⁣The reality is, this hurts. I’m an extrovert, an enneagram 2, and I feel called to serve others. Dustin oftenContinue reading “We’re all struggling”

Still.

I’ve held on to this for a week now… ⁣ ⁣ “The Lord will fight for you, and you must be quiet.” Existed 14:14 ⁣ ⁣ “Now, therefore, present yourselves and see this great thing that the Lord will do before your eyes.” 1 Samuel 12:16 ⁣ ⁣ “To seek to lead a quiet life,Continue reading “Still.”

Stop instilling false fear

I was you. I laughed at the thought of using essential oils to support my health. I thought it was silly that someone could be so concerned about what they’re putting on their skin. I thought it was unnecessary to worry about what you clean with since the goal was to get rid of germs.Continue reading “Stop instilling false fear”

We chose what we saw fit…and still do

I don’t know why after 22 years I still struggle with how others see me. I don’t know why I constantly apologize for the things I do and I don’t know why I feel like I always have to explain myself to others. But I do…even after 22 years. You see, nearly a year andContinue reading “We chose what we saw fit…and still do”

I miss it, but I don’t…

There’s nothing quite like being sick and spending days in bed to drive you straight into a reminiscent state. ⁣⠀⠀⁣The truth is, I miss it. ⁣⠀⠀⁣I miss the long naps cuddling together. ⁣⠀⠀⁣I miss our long hours together that required nursing and changing diapers and lots of learning on both ends. ⁣ The truth is,Continue reading “I miss it, but I don’t…”

Starting the new year strong

It’s funny, isn’t it? How we build up the end of the year to this one big moment where the clock strikes twelve, you kiss your love (or dog…), shout out “Happy New Year” and then go to bed? You have family traditions like black eyed peas and cabbage and a day of relaxation. YouContinue reading “Starting the new year strong”

Take the journey

We let fear talk us out of doing crazy, exciting things. Sometimes, we even let fear talk us out of doing the small, little things. I want to own my own business. Psh..that’s not a real job. I’m going to take control of my health. Yeah, but why? You’re not intelligent enough to do so.Continue reading “Take the journey”

Elizabeth Biles: Sixteen hours of worship

Miss the first part of her story? Hear about Elizabeth’s decision to choose natural here.  As I neared my last few days of pregnancy, I packed my bags (obviously including a separate bag just for my diffuser and oils) and stayed with my in-laws as they lived significantly closer to where I would be deliveringContinue reading “Elizabeth Biles: Sixteen hours of worship”

Elizabeth Biles: Choosing natural

I have put off writing about this for over a year now and I am not even sure why.  I use the typical excuses; I don’t have the time, I don’t have anything to say, my story isn’t special.  Then, finally, I grabbed my bottles of Frankincense and Orange essential oils, turned on my birthContinue reading “Elizabeth Biles: Choosing natural”
