Scentsy - a safe alternative to the common candle

Hi! I want to let everyone know that I am now a consultant for Scentsy wickless candles. Instead of worrying about an open flame, Scentsy candles use a 25-watt bulb to melt the wax. There are over 80 fragrances to enjoy and several unique warmers. There are also car candles and room sprays and plug-in warmers that are perfect for bathrooms and other small spaces . Check out my web page at where you can browse the catalog and place an order if you would like. Feel free to e-mail me with any questions. I look forward to working with my family and friends with this awesome product.


P.S. To have the product before Christmas, orders need to be in by Dec. 15th!

Or should I say welcome back? Sorry that I took my original blog down. I was having a bad day. But today is a new day and it's time to move forward. This blog is exactly for what the title says, a blog for Christian parents. I think it's important to write on issues that Christian parents face in todays world. There are so many negative things going on all around us. This blog is to focus on positive things and to push through those negative things that come our way. When we keep our eyes focused on the Lord, He will get us through any circumstance. He's definitely brought me through many rough seasons. The Bible says there is a time for everything. Right now, through His grace, I am enjoying the many blessings that He's given to me. But I know not to take this time for granted because it's just a season and I know life won't always be this easy. Not a day goes by without me thanking Him for our blessings. May this blog be a blessing to your life in some way!
