About the Purdys

24231891_1971089786489055_5928254444363437680_nI am first and foremost a Christian. In all that I do as a wife, a mother, a journalist, a businesswoman and a person on this earth, my priority is to show my love and appreciation for Jesus Christ by my actions.

My passions include writing, homeschooling our younger children, being active with friends in our church, running and fitness in general, cooking and music.

I am also a Wellness Advocate for the world’s foremost essential oil company, doTERRA. After several years of using essential oils in my home and on my family, I discovered three major areas of life that were being drastically affected for the better- the mind, the body and the spirit. Our family’s passion for doTERRA’s essential oils led me and my husband (also known as “The Oil Honcho“) to launch our own business as educators for essential oils.

Our Story

We met on the internet. Yep- ChristianMingle.com- and our story is so glaringly a God-thing that we can’t help but testify to His goodness just by telling about what He’s done for us. We’ll do that some day- maybe ….we’ll write a book! LOL.

From there, our sweetly blended family has grown and after spending our first 9 years in Utah, we relocated to upstate NY in 2017. Best. Decision. Ever. God has given us a solid vision for our role in seeking first His kingdom, and we are pursuing that upward call with excitement and a passion for Jesus Christ.

What you’ll find at TheEssentialLife.Us

In a word- us. We’re every bit as real as you are and we want to share what we have learned, experienced and weathered with you- to encourage, support and strengthen your faith, and enrich your life in Christ.
