13 Reasons Why: Hope & Deep Blue


Have you watched this show!?  I never felt compelled when this show came out to watch it….mostly because I have been disappointed by every Netflix original thus far.  They ALWAYS have content too explicit for my taste.  I absolutely DO NOT like watching sexual scenes. It is such an affront to how beautifully wonderfully made we are.  It objectifies us and reduces GODS beautiful gift to us to something that is deemed as entertainment by the film/tv industry.

I will try to stay on topic….lol….

I watched this show for 2 reasons:  a friend of my daughters watched it so I thought if I watched it I would have a way to continue to connect with her and have meaningful conversation.  And I knew if anything it would be something to blog about….lol.

Oh my goodness gracious.  I had NO IDEA what I was instore for.

This show rocked my world in a very good way.  Now I am truly not advocating to watch it.  As a matter of fact I think the writers and producers got a lot of things wrong….but I think they did get some things right.

So let’s cover what was wrong first:

Besides the beyond over use of language…..especially F***, it was sexually graphic.  It made me VERY uncomfortable especially the TWO RAPE SCENES!!!

There was NEVER an option or choice of hope portrayed for these kiddos because faith was NEVER mentioned…not even to mock Christianity.

What was right…..and why it rocked my world…

This young girl becomes the target of sexual abuse (touches, pats, leers, groping, comments, and rape) all because of a terrible picture taken in the wrong “light of angling” that portrayed her as “not a good girl”. 

This show was able to eloquently show how continual layers of being treating like a sexual object impacts a person profoundly to finally feel like nothing….to feel unworthy….to feel shame….to freeze in moments when we should fight or flight…..to question our own worth.

It showed how well intended adults sometimes don’t think about their wording and put blame on the victim, which causes even more doubt and shame.

My best suggestion to parents if they are curious about this show is watch the extra episode which is 30 minutes it explains the show and why they developed it the way they did.  I think these topics are important to address with our kiddos I just think that this show really missed out on the Christian element!

Now… this is why I loved and hated this show….and why it rocked my world She was me!  And if it weren’t for my faith….I may have felt the same hopelessness she felt.

By the time I was this girls age I had already endured so many pats, leers, and more that I was numb to it all.  After all the 70’s and 80’s were all about sexual expression, freedom, revolution right!?  So it was believed a girl should feel flattered that men and boys “noticing” her right?!

This show not only provide great research for me but it also provided continual healing.  But I am an adult.  My concern for some young girls who watch this show is it could re-traumatize them or even scandalize them.  But that is just my opinion. And that is for their parents to hopefully get involved and decide if it is something they should watch, watch with them, and discuss especially if their teen has already watched it.


It seems like I use the HOPE oil a lot….lol…..but I really love how it can truly lift a person out of feelings of overwhelm, loss, and so much more.  I paired it with DEEP BLUE during this time to soothe the wounds (the flash backs) it was provoking.  I was very grateful to have the support of these 2 oils….and many others!

Hurt turns to Hope

The frozen, numb, zombie look on her face stopped me cold with my meal prep.

File Jan 24, 11 31 33 AM

I looked at my darling daughter and I asked her what was wrong.  She looked at me and said, “I didn’t know”.  I asked her what she meant.  “I didn’t know that’s what an abortion was.”  Now I felt sucker punched.

Ugh….you see I just assumed (huge mistake here) since we have always participated in Pro-Life marches, events, presentations, etc…..and I talk openly about the topic that my 14 year old knew and understood what it was all about.

I asked her what she thought an abortion was.  She stated she knew it was taking of a life but she had never really processed or thought about how it was taken or that it was painful (for both involved: the child and the mother).


How this even all came about was we were visiting about  my excitement for our family to have the opportunity to participate in the Rally for Life this Saturday in Austin.  And then to hear Abby Johnson speak on Feb 1 about her conversion story.  She once upon a time had worked for Planned Parenthood.  Her testimony is about having had to assist and watch on the sonogram an abortion procedure.  This is what forever changed her world.   What I had read on Abby’s website opened my daughter’s eyes to the reality of it.

This broke my heart because I realized it was another layer of innocence she no longer has, yet I am also glad it was me who she had the moment with, so she could process it out.

It has given us some amazing conversations and profound moments.  She sees how ugly it is but is still too young to truly grasp that these beautiful women are just as much a victim as their child that was taken from their womb.  They are victims of the lies the enemy whispered in their ears, their heads, their hearts…convincing them this was their only choice.

File Jan 24, 11 48 04 AM

We have had the chance to really discuss the different types of lies the enemy may say to these precious women of God to convince them to take a life.  It has been tough but it has also been good, because I can see in my daughters eyes how deeply disturbed she is about it, yet also how very concerned and compassionate she feels toward the women.  And that is important.  Too many times we get caught up in the fight to save a life that we forget to love these women who are hurting too!

Highlight Oils: CONSOLE AND HOPE

 I chose console and hope to support my daughter through this.

Console: Comforts and eases burdens; guides a person toward rest within our emotions.

*My daughter really needed to be unburdened by this traumatic awareness of what an abortion is.

Hope: Even though Console also has Ylang Ylang and Frankincense, as well, Hope has Bergamot.

*My daughter really needed to feel the optimism of this oil.  She feels so deeply for others.  Hope oil helps her feel connected to God in knowing that HE DOES REDEEM ALL!!!

That was my week of reality…what about you!?

Sit…pray….journal….tap….and oil up!

Essential Disciple

I’m back!!!

And Oh my goodness gracious God has given me some focus and vision with this blog that I am super excited to share with you all…..so forgive me if this one ends up being a bit longer than usual…lol…

File Jan 17, 3 01 51 PM

It’s so interesting to me all the different ways this simple blog has changed, grown, developed and rippled.  How the theme, the direction, and content has changed over the years.  But one thing remains: It is a personal account of my life journey.  God definitely purposed me so many years ago to start this blog to create hope, to spread good ripples.

Whether it was sharing about my losses, my challenges, my health, my joys, simple topics, or complex topics….it has always been what is currently going on in my life, how it is effecting me and my family and how I can maybe help someone who is wrestling with similar experiences.

With all that being said…..I have always shared with you all what I am thinking…even when it comes to changes with this blog….and why.  It’s funny because I know some bloggers are about content and information; they don’t share the process of their changes, their format, etc….they just do it!  But since I am here about my journey and building relationship with you well I’m going to share what’s going on in my thoughts even about this blog…lol.

File Jan 17, 3 02 18 PM

I am feeling very called to have several sections so to speak… to bridge and connect what’s going on in my life…to scripture, essential oils, etc.  I am wanting to be an intentional disciple for and with you on this amazing life journey.

Because this is the thing…for every personal account I share…

There IS a scripture I find that draws me closer to God.  There IS an essential oil or two or three or more…..that support me and my family.  And for every situation I see more and more more how our physical and emotional and spiritual health are connected.

I am hoping that by my continual sharing of my personal life here with you and connecting it to God’s word and God’s gift of essential oils (as well as other sources and modalities) that you too will desire to be an intentional disciple in your faith walk, your WHOLE life, YOUR WHOLE HEALTH: mind, body, soul, spirit!

Finally, hold on for a ride because the things I have been journaling about, healing about, and life experiences of recent has me really going deep.  Which means I am going to be taking you all on an amazing journey if you’ll join me for 2018!

Let’s just say….TOB (Theology of the Body), our beautiful sexuality, sexual healing, what’s been going on in the media and many tough topics are going to be addressed here.  I am super excited to share!

So hold on tight cause the conversation I just recently had with my darling daughter was deep, sad, and truly amazing.

Today reflect on what do you need healing from?  What are you wanting to really dig deep into for 2018?

Sit…pray….journal….tap….and oil up!
