"May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed." - Psalms 20:4 -
God has given us more than 800 Scriptures about money. Our family's financial journey has had many twists and turns, dips and valleys over the years; however, through it all we have come to realize that learning more, taking time to plan and implement proven strategies, based on God's teaching, will make the difference in our future financial freedom.
As we all become healthier with natural solutions and build wealth together, it makes it more fun and significant if we journey together, taking baby steps towards leaving a legacy of financial wellness. I am committed to be on this path, not only with my family, but with those Wellness Advocates that, like us, want to honor the gifts that God gives us. Being committed to such a road as this will require important steps. Having mentors, experts in their field, is critical when you're taking on a journey you have little experience in; therefore, having come to appreciate the knowledge Dave Ramsey has created in the journey to financial peace, we have implemented many of his topics mentioned below. Also, nowadays there are many classes offered regarding these topics and they will definitely be a part of our future steps together toward financial freedom.
There are many locations and course topics that we can attend to assist us in learning the key principles; however, much like learning about essential oils, I know this takes time and commitment; thus, why the thought of baby steps forward is exciting - we must decide that we CAN and WILL do this!!! Also, doTERRA offers a FREE to Give program that encourages Debt Free Living! Another great reason why I love all things doTERRA!

As we earn money, we will save and as we give and help others we will teach them to do the same! Oh how wonderful it is to know that our BELIEF becomes REALITY with ACTION!!
