What's the big deal about Young Living

An Apology

From the very beginning, I have always wanted this blog to be a blessing, something to help others, and never to hurt. I wanted to make people laugh, even in the midst of parenting trials.

It has become evident that I have not achieved that goal. I have unintentionally caused hurt and pain and for that I am truly sorry.

When I described a situation I observed recently, I was seeing in my mind and describing on my blog behavior that I have witnessed dozens of times in my own seven children and hundreds of students during my eight years as a school teacher.  The behavior I described was nothing more to me than childishness and impatience, but I can see now that the words I used were viewed as symptoms of autism and many people were offended.

The most grievous part, for me, is that this has brought dishonor to the name of Christ, and that is wholly the opposite of my life's mission.

It is my sincere hope that this apology will bring healing and peace.

Given the nature of many of the emails I have received, please understand why I feel it is necessary to close the comments on this post.

  1. I view your blog as a blessing and I’m so glad that you share your life with us. You are an awesome mother and wife, and a good Christian. Don’t be too hard on yourself. I’m not sure what post your talking about but I’ve never read anything offensive. Regardless, if you did put something slightly askew on there we all make mistakes. Keep on being incredible!


  2. I am so thankful for your post. I am going through a tough situation at my job and realize that what is really, I mean really, bothering me about it is that I don’t feel like I have brought dishonor to the name of Christ. I appreciate your honesty it helped me through a rough day.
