I truly don't even know where to start with describing to you what happened in Utah.
My heart, and the heart of our team, was changed forever.
I suppose I should just start at the beginning......
For the last 2 years, we have been privileged to attend doTERRA's convention with our team.
Year one, we had 13 girls with us and were beyond excited! That was a huge number for first timers, what a blessing!
Year 2? Our Dorothy team had 49 there!!!! WOW!
We had so many husbands join us too! You guys, we love our team so much! The family culture, and the heart of these beautiful people.....just moves me to tears.
What an honor to call them not only team mates, and business partners, but FRIENDS!
So, lets back up a bit....
Before we left home for SLC, we enjoyed time with my BFF and her kids, got hair cuts and just generally ran a BAZILLION errands. Nana took the kids to the State Fair day one, so we could pack and get ready and then we were off.
We decided not to take the kids with us to convention this year. Our PRECIOUS friends in Kansas agreed to care for them, alongside 6 of their own kiddos. Our families get along great, and our kids lived together for months when we parked at the Bible Camp they help run, in our RV while we waited for our home base to be done. They had all kinds of adventures planned, including the state fair with TEN children, hiking and more! I LOVED getting these photos during the week....
On Thursday, Papa Clay drove ALL the way from Florida, to the midwest to pick up the kids and drive CROSS COUNTRY with them alone, before meeting up with Grammy in AZ, and us in LA, California after convention was done, for a really cool opportunity.
I can't blog it until the show is about to air, but let's just say, when we prayed for the Lord to expand our territory, we had NO idea it would include a TV show feature.
I can't wait to share more with you later, but for now, stay tuned and watch TD Jakes new talk show on the O network!!!!
Dale and I made Diamonds with doTERRA in November, praise Jesus! This is the 3rd from top rank in the company and we are so honored to get extra training and together time with our leaders in the company now, before everyone else starts to arrive.
The trip over there started with a BANG, a literal bang of a HUGE rock from a farm implement shattered our windshield and would have gone through had it not hit half of the rubber lining around the GIANT windshield.
SIGH. We were not going to be detoured so we kept going while I made calls to see who could fix it. It was driveable as it was clear at the top, but as we went it split downward about 4 feet windshield. Thank you Lord for safety!
It's a pretty dull drive, but we did get into some STUNNING scenary as we got closer. It sure is quiet traveling without our 4 little Fergusons!
We arrived at got settled and headed over to a lunch time luau at one of our up up up up uplines beautiful backyard. They are the most generous, salt of the earth, good people.
We also had dinner with several of our amazing up up uplines and sister legs, and even squeezed in a date night for some Indian food that rocked our world.
WOW, I am so in love with Veggie Samosa, Chicken Tikka Marsala over butter rice, the chips and chutney on the tables, the gorgeous colors, the rich spices. OH MAN! I am hungry!
We found a beautiful RV park to stay at just outside of Salt Lake. It was ideal!
Dale and I were able to use this time to prepare for our team, get gifts ready and slip over to doTERRA for a tour of their campus. All built debt free, and all amazing!
This is when our team started arriving! It was like seeing your kids anticipate CHRISTMAS!!!
We were GIDDY for the amazing experience to begin for them.... :)
Much more to come....
