Sometimes we forget how to dream.
We become scared to step out a little further because we've felt the sting of life's disappointments... and so we just stay where we are.
But we all start out with beautiful dreams.
What if there's a way to get them back?
My name is Melody Lyons and this is my story of hope...
God has blessed me with everything a modern princess really needs: a large and beautiful family, a lively homeschool, much healing after two decades of chronic illness, many creative outlets, and a strong faith in Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church. My cup is full! What more do I need?
In the last few years, I began to notice that the sweetness was marred by one missing piece: my faithful husband. He was working so hard to support us that he had to sacrifice being with us. I thought there had to be a way to find better balance.
But there is no such animal as "balance" in busy family life. We never truly multi-task, we simply prioritize quickly, one thing over another. When we do things for fun or profit or necessity, we simply decide that the investment will pay off somehow in service to our family. Bills need to be paid. There's always something breaking or needing my husband's hard earned pennies.
His service to us has been heroic as he has traded his precious time for money; and we've always dreamt of that "someday" when he wouldn't have to burn the candle at both ends anymore.
When a close male family member died unexpectedly at a young age, I knew I was ready for a change. Life passes quickly.
I decided to enter into business in order to help bring my best friend home again where he can bless his children and maintain a close friendship with me. I miss him. We all miss him. And when I discovered that I could earn an income serving others and my family, I knew that I had to look more deeply.
Simply... DoTERRA's message, leadership, and products echo that desire of my heart. I could not put my name behind a company I didn't believe in. I was not surprised to learn that doTERRA was named by Forbes in their top 10 "Best Employers of 2016." I seriously love what I do.
My doTERRA business is first, an act of service to my family. Homeschooling is an almost impossible task in this culture of double income frenetic insanity. We've tried to step outside of the crazy. We've tried to be frugal. We've tried to make it all work when we haven't an ounce of energy left. The formula isn't working. After setting aside my decade of blogging, my addiction to social media, and various other distractions, I'm giving my time to something better...
Bringing my husband home. A restoration of our family. A renewal of our homeschool. Applying my gifts of writing, speaking, and my passion for faith-based natural healing to work directly for my family.
My doTERRA business is second, an act of service to all women (and men) out there who need hope in times of desolation, healing in times of illness, encouragement in times of trial. After finding relief after 20 years of chronic pain and illness, I need to testify to others that healing (or at least peace) from any of life's struggles is possible... and to give you permission to accept it and take the next step, whatever it may be; and that joy is always an option, even in the midst of pain.
