Summer Hosting a Eastern European Orphan

Many of you know we hosted a sweet orphan boy last Christmas from Eastern Europe. We continue to keep in contact almost daily and can’t wait to see him again. This maybe his last summer opportunity to come as he will age out of the system soon. As of now the summer hosting is still not forsure happening, however if they get the OK we will have only days to get the funds together to bring him back. ($2,600) Originally we planned on doing fundraisers at local restaurants but with everything closed down, we were unable to do that. So we are asking all of you to come behind us and help support us bringing him back. If for any reason they do not allow them to come this summer, all hosting money raised will be transferred to the Christmas hosting. All donations are a tax write off as well. Here is the link if you can help. Thank you for your support and prayers as we continue to build this relationship with this young man that we hope will help him in the future.

April Promos


Are you ready to transition into spring with a tidy, toxin-free home? Get started with your green-cleaning kit in April’s PV promo. Featuring chore companions like Purification, Lemon, and Tea Tree, this promo helps you get every surface smelling fresh.

Plus, you can snag exclusive swag, including a branded spray bottle and premium dryer balls. These dryer balls are handmade from 100 percent wool by women in Nepal. Not only are the balls free of chemicals and dyes, but they provide a reliable source of income to Nepalese women, so they can provide for their families and become self-reliant.

• Banish bathroom odors. Moisten a cotton ball with a drop or two of Purification and stash between the trash can and liner.

Premium dryer balls

• Go green in the laundry room. Unlike single-use dryer sheets, this set of four wool balls can be used over and over again to reduce drying time and static cling. Any essential oils added to the balls must dry fully before the balls are put in the dryer.

• Support someone’s fresh start. These dryer balls and the cotton bag they come in provide fair wages to women in Nepal, many of whom are single mothers, widows, and survivors of trafficking.

Cinnamon Bark essential oil, 5 ml

• Make stuffy spaces feel cozy. Add 4 drops of Cinnamon Bark to a glass spray bottle filled with water and use as a room spray to refresh stale air.

• Make bad smells a memory. If your towels still smell after washing, spray them with a mixture of 1/2 cup water, 1/4 cup witch hazel or rubbing alcohol, and 30 drops Tea Tree.

Branded spray bottle

• Dabble in DIY. Instead of compromising on iffy ingredients, blend your own botanically based cleaners in this spray bottle.

• Clean with confidence. Thanks to the dilution chart on the back of the bottle, you can ditch any doubt when using Thieves Household Cleaner.

Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil, 15 ml

• Kick out kitchen stink. Diffuse Eucalyptus on its own or with Lemon and Rosemary to get that clean kitchen scent—even if you still have dirty dishes in the sink.

Our Journey to You


I wanted to share the story of how we came to host a child from Eastern Europe.

From the beginning God was working in ways we never knew. It all started when I saw a post on Facebook about a friend needing another family to host 2 boys from the Ukraine. I contacted her to learn more about it.  It turned out the hosting program she was working with didn’t work in our state.  However, God put on my heart we needed to open our home to a child from the Eastern Europe. I looked on Google and found New Horizons For Children- NHFC. This organization did hosting of children over winter and summer in my state. I contacted them and they sent me an email with a list of kids that were available to host.  I talked to my husband and he said he was not at all interested in doing it.  I started to pray that God would change his heart.  A month or so passed and I recieved an email from NHFC that only a few children were left to be hosted and we had 24 hours to pick or they would not be left behind. I went and asked my husband again and showed him the picture of a young boy. I felt God told me he was the one we were suppose to host. I want to state that again to HOST! We NEVER even considered the idea of adoption

Well, God had been at work on his heart and he said YES!! I ugly cry because I was so happy we were going to be able to open our home for Christmas. We got all the paperwork done and waited for the day he would arrive.  Oh, did I mention it turned out the young boys who picture I saw was 16 years old. We have a 12 year old daughter that looks 16 and were VERY nervous, but we continue to trust God.

As we waited for him to arrive, our friends would say to me ” Just wait, you’ll be adding him to your family.” Which ofcourse I would say “no we have always only wanted 2 kids and we already have that”. But God was working on our hearts again.


The day came when he arrived and we finally got to meet him.  God was working on our hearts again and over the next few days as he started to open up and it felt like he was always meant to be a part of our family.  Like he was always meant to be ours. God changed our hearts and we knew we had to do everything we could to make him a part of our family.  I now know that God has a plan and even though we don’t know what it is, I am trusting that He will finish what He started with him becoming a part of our family. I don’t know how or when, but I know He is at work on it and there is no problem to big that He can’t handle.


I hurts so much to not be able to have him here with us right now. To not be able to hug him good morning or do our best part and worst part of your day before we say goodnight. I am having to trust God is at work behind the scene to make it all happen. So until we get to have him here again with us, we will just get to see him when we chat and let him know each day how special he is and how much we love him.

If you have adopted from Eastern Europe and have any tips or ideas to help us, pleas recommend below or email me at livingyoungcountrygirl@gmail.com . We are needing all the help we can get.

If you are interested in hosting yourself and want more information, please go to their website http://nhfc.org/ to learn more.

Monthly Promotion

JANUARY PROMOS 2020!!!

It’s 2020, friends!! I am beyond excited for this brand new year and Young Living sure is helping us start it off right with some AMAZING promos! This month’s freebies are all about cold weather essentials and I’m totally in for all of it since I’m just trying to survive this chilly time of year. 🥶 Before we get to all of the awesomeness, here are a few tips to make sure you’re getting the most out of your Young Living orders:

✅ If you’re not yet enrolled in the Essential Rewards program, take a peek at this short video to see how you can earn points back and additional exclusive promos just for ordering each month! https://youtu.be/2ThONHudUOY

✅ If you haven’t already, I highly encourage you to sign up for YL Go shipping. It’s like Amazon Prime for Young Living and allows you to get your orders shipped faster for less! Learn more here: https://www.youngliving.com/en_US/opportunity/essential-rewards/ylgo

Ok, are you even ready for this, you guys?!? Here are the fantastic products you can earn for FREE this month with your qualifying order:

🌿 Peppermint 10ml (100 PV ER Exclusive): Yep, you read that right – an exclusive 10ml bottle of Peppermint!! This is one of those special promos that you literally can’t get otherwise, so I always get a little extra excited for things like this! We love Peppermint around my house and you’ll find it in our diffusers pretty often to help perk everyone up on gloomy winter days. It is a great oil to use with a few drops of carrier oil for muscle massage after a day on the slopes (or the less glamorous version of shoveling your driveway 😝). Don’t forget Peppermint is a Vitality oil, so it is awesome to add into seasonal recipes, teas, and hot chocolate!

🍂 Cinnamon Bark Vitality 5ml (190PV ER exclusive): Mmmm Cinnamon Bark. This oil just smells so cozy, especially this time of year! It’s an important ingredient in many popular products like Thieves, Inner Defense, and Abundance. That’s because it is a powerhouse oil when it comes to a healthy immune and digestive system. You can substitute Cinnamon Bark into any recipe that calls for ground cinnamon and it is awesome mixed in hot cereals. It’s another one that’s wonderful to add to your warm drinks as well! Feeling a little frisky? Add a drop or two to your NingXia Red for a “hot shot” to start your day and freshen your breath at the same time! 🔥 This smells amazing in the diffuser with warm oils like Clove, Nutmeg, and Orange. Oh and a little fun fact – apparently the Cinnamon Bark aroma attracts wealth. While I can’t promise dollar bills suddenly flying in your face, I think it’s a great oil to use when setting intentions and goals for the new year!

🕊 Roman Chamomile 5ml (190PV): If you are a mom, know a mom, or have a mom, chances are this is an oil you’ll want to have in your life! This is a fabulous oil for all things calming because it helps to relieve stress, dispel anger, and release negative emotions. If you love the Tranquil Roll-On, this is why. 😉 Roman Chamomile is also a wonderful addition to your evening skin care routine to leave your skin glowing and healthy while helping to relax your mind before bed!

🚺 Clary Sage 15ml (250 PV): This amazing stuff is about to become your best friend when it comes to female hormones, friends! Clary Sage contains phytoestrogens which are natural plant-based estrogens. It is grounding and comforting which makes it perfect to support your body during less-than-awesome times of the month. It is great to diffuse with Orange and Patchouli to help your mood on those dreary cold days. Pro tip: add a drop or two to your favorite conditioner to help tame dry, frizzy winter hair!

🧤 YL-Branded Mittens and Beanie (300 PV): But seriously, are you kidding me right now?!?! How dang cute are these??? 😍 I am sooooo happy to see something like this in the monthly promos since it doesn’t happen very often, especially when we’re talking things that keep me warm! #saynotothecold I can’t wait to get these on my order this month and may not take them off until spring!

What are you most excited about this month?? I bet you can’t guess what I’m looking forward to the most… #givemeallthecozybeanies Don’t forget that you can earn the promos twice each month – once on Essential Rewards and once on a regular Quick Order. I really hope your 2020 will be full of wonderful, amazing things and can’t wait to share this new year with all of you! ❤️
