When Life's Lessons Come Together and a Vision is Embraced...
I am extremely excited to share with you all that has taken place over the last several months...good things, new opportunities, doors being opened, dreams coming to fruition! When I look back to when everything started, I am at a loss for words. It is then that I truly see my Heavenly Father's hand at work through it all. When you are going through challenges, sometimes that view is distorted. You are solely focused on the circumstance in front of you - and miss the BIG picture. If you haven't read my story from the beginning, I pray you do - http://www.simplynutrilistic.com/blog/our-healing-journey.
The last several months have been nothing short of amazing. And again, the Lord has orchestrated it all - He always does. To back up a little, I had been operating from the office at Frazier Nutrisearch in Lake City since April, when I purchased the business. But my heart was in Live Oak and I longed to be back in that community. I longed to be closer to my family and all that was familiar; to be close enough to my daughters' school that I could often participate in their activities again. At the end of May, that opportunity opened up...and I almost missed it! It wasn't until the second person told me of the same office space for rent, that I realized this was the answer I had been prayerfully seeking. When I walked into this office space, I KNEW this was of the Lord. It was absolutely perfect! If it is one thing I have learned over the last few years as I have sought to walk closer with my Heavenly Father, it is that when he says to move, you'd better cling to Him tighter because it is going to be a ride! Suddenly, we had to figure in a move among my husband's crazy work schedule and our previously scheduled vacation! Needless to say, we moved and settled in before the perfectly timed vacation to the beautiful Smokies! That was a much needed trip by the time we left!
It still blows my mind that 'Simply Nutrilistic' is on a building in Live Oak. That was the furthest thing from my mind when our daughter's skin issues sent us down unconventional paths. But you know, this path began long before that. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a Chiropractor because I wanted to help others feel better. As I grew, that changed to something in agriculture.
In college, I began growing culinary herbs and learning about their uses. My first job after college was working in customer service for Purina Mills - a national livestock feed manufacture, learning computer skills and much needed customer service skills. After sometime there, I worked at a feed store in Live Oak learning bookkeeping and the ins and out of a retail store. During that time is when our healing journey began - my understanding of animal nutrition really helped me understand the basics for human nutrition. And the Lord uncovered my passion and purpose. As we prayed for ways to share and help others, He began to open doors, in His perfect time, that have led me to where I am today.
When my path intertwined with Dr. Bill's, I realized our passions were quite similar. And I love that I can continue his legacy, while adding my own. He will forever be a part of Simply Nutrilistic and who I am. He often talked about opening a store in Live Oak again...now his dream has come true as well.
I love to educate and empower my clients to be in charge of their health. Some ways I do this is through individual wellness consultations, and monthly classes. I also offer quality, professional supplements and personal guidance for you to achieve optimal wellness. No matter your location, you can take advantage of the services I offer, thanks to the advances in technology! So take a look around my website, and if you are in Live Oak, come in and say hey!
