I was blessed to meet Orville & Heidi Thompson – the founders and amazing owners of Scentsy Family!

When I joined Scentsy 7 months ago (in June of 2012), I already knew my WHY – and I was ready to hit the ground running!  What is my WHY, you ask?  My WHY is my daughter.  My daughter is a huge blessing for both my husband and me, I never knew that she was a miracle baby until we ran into a rough time from April of 2011 to May of 2012.  We always knew we wanted to have at least two children, but never knew we would have to question the feasability of more children until I became pregnant in March of 2011 and started having complications.

That being said, I ended up going through my first miscarriage in April of 2011, during my daughter’s 2nd birthday.  The doctors said it was probably just a fluke, and that there was no reason I couldn’t try again soon.  I became pregnant again in October of 2011 and did everything I could to PRAY for this to be a successful pregnancy.  Unfortunately, even after seeing a heartbeat on ultrasound, things went awry yet again and I went through my second miscarriage.  This time, however, I knew there had to be a reason why this kept happening.  I went through a multitude of blood tests, including DNA tests, which finally showed that I have a DNA mutation called MTHFR Heterozygous.  This is a fairly new found DNA mutation, and there is relatively no research or perfect treatment.  One thing that doctors do know is that these mutations create an inability of my body to process Folic Acid, which leads to a buildup of a byproduct which can create small blood clots.

Armed with a diagnosis, we trudged ahead and decided that it was finally time to try again. In March of 2012, we were expecting again – and we were prepared with supplements and medications from an amazing doctor who was willing to work with me even though not much is known about MTHFR mutations.  Prayer and bedrest were my treatments, with hopes that everything would finally work out of the best.  Unfortunately, when I went in for my ultrasound, there was no heartbeat or blood flow to/from the baby and I had to endure my third miscarriage – full of disappointment.

Through this entire year of hopes and loss, my daughter was ALWAYS there for me – being my shining light and standing as proof that God is great!  After enduring three miscarriages within a year, I knew that I needed to devote as much time as possible to watching my daughter grow up and being with her as much as possible.

Being an Independent Scentsy Director, I am able to spend more time with my daughter, she is able to “help” me with my business (because we all know that little helpers are the BEST!), and I am able to grow from within!  I have always had a full-time job, thanks to my college education in Marketing & Management, but I’m looking forward to being a full-time Scentsy mom sometime soon!  Once I can be a full-time Scentsy mom, I’ll be able to spend even MORE time with my daughter – which I can’t wait to do!!!

PLUS, I have now gained over 50 new family members (already – I can’t want to see how many more family members we add in 2013!), all over the world!  My Scentsy team, Global LumineScents, is full of the best guys and gals around – and I am *so* blessed to know each and every one of them!  My nurturing nature and love of teaching are highlighted in the way that I train and mentor my team.  They may not be blood family – but Scentsy is thicker than blood! 😉

Scentsy is paving the way for me to follow my WHY – to spend more time with my daughter, before she is all grown-up! (I can’t believe she is almost 4!)  And, I am so excited that I get to help others follow their WHY!  What is your driving force, the reason you get up in the morning?  Would Scentsy help you acheive your goals?!  It has for me!  I’d love to visit with anyone contemplating a Scentsy business, let’s see how Scentsy can help with your WHY!  There were SO MANY new and exciting products announced at Spring Sprint – solidifying Scentsy Family’s place in the Direct Selling world!  If you thought our past products were amazing, you are in for a huge treat in March and April of 2013!  Knowing that we are continually coming out with new products, I *know* that the Scentsy light in me is going to continue to shine brighter and brighter!  THANK YOU Scentsy, and especially Heidi & Orville, for the amazing opportunities you have given to Consultants all over the world!
