A Guest Post from: Carrie Raab

Carrie, owner of Young Living Oil Lady, loves people and desires to listen and help them whether it is a spiritual, physical, mental, or emotional need. Because of her love for people, sports, fitness, health and overall wellness, she decided to go back to school, after she received her degree in Psychology, to become a Physical Therapist. Upon completion of her degree, she worked at a Sports Medicine Clinic, mainly treating athletes. She worked until the Lord blessed her and her husband with their first child. She left her role as a career woman to stay home with her newborn son. She has been a stay at home mom ever since! This “stay at home” path led her down the road of homeschooling her now two adorable sons. She uses the word of God as her plumb line and is very passionate about her Lord and Savior. She believes God created everything in the garden for our good. She uses all natural products, loves raw whole foods, and prefers Young Living essential oils versus popping pills. She shares her passion for healthy living on her blog.

“Teens feel vulnerable about everything. They worry about their appearance. They feel insecure about their bodies and their personalities,” says Tedd Tripp. Since we know this to be true, we, as parents must pour into them the love of Christ and what He says and speaks over them. Our children need to gain their identity in Christ.
