My entire life I always dreamed about being a wife & mother. My dream partially came true in March of 2010 when I married my wonderful husband, Joshua. After a struggle with infertility due to Stage 4 Endometriosis, we were blessed with the miracle of our son, Connor David, in March of 2012. My dream was complete.
Connor was diagnosed a couple of years ago with Childhood Apraxia of Speech. He is extremely intelligent and knows everything he wants to say, but his brain can't properly tell his mouth how to form the words. It also causes some severe sensory issues. We drive him an hour each way to a special Therapy Center twice a week, and he has home therapy once a week. He still only has a handful of short words, most of which can only be understood by family, but he is slowly and steadily improving. We still have a long journey ahead of us, but God will help us to our destination.
I have always WANTED to be a stay-at-home mom, but due to Connor's special needs and therapy I now NEED to be a stay-at-home mom. However, I felt guilty not helping to financially contribute to our family's needs.
I originally joined Scentsy in April 2014 after purchasing an item for a fundraiser from a friend who was a consultant. I have always loved smell good stuff, and the warmers were so pretty! I didn't really know how it would work out. I was nervous about being a salesperson and annoying people. However, my Scentsy team has become like a second family to me. I have made wonderful friends who inspire me not only on this Scentsy journey, but also through life in general. I have customers who have become friends as well. My business is so much fun and gives me a break from the stresses of everyday life. And, most importantly, my business allows me to stay home with my son and give him all the attention he needs while also bringing money in. Heck, Connor is almost more obsessed with Scentsy than I am! He loves smelling every last bar and tester that comes in, and he has become my little Scentsy Assistant!
All in all, God has blessed me greatly, and I wouldn't trade this life for anything.
