Amanda Collier-Hardin – Young Living Essential Oils

Amanda Collier-Hardin I help people learn to use essential oils. I have been with Young Living since Feb 2015. Before trying Young Living oils I had never considered being in sales. When I started using the oils and seeing the many ways my family used them I felt like they could help my friends and family! Helping others learn to be an advocate for their families health and their own. It is important that we look into all the ways we can help improve our health. This can be by using Young Living oils for immune support, to calm the mind and body, relax after a workout, or help our skin after a day in the sun. I love learning new ways to use my oils and being a person to help others. My wife and I have been married for almost 2 years but this will be our 12th year together. We have a 16year old son who has just started driving and is in the 11th grade. We are a foster family for Newnan Coweta Humane Society cat program and love playing with our animals and the fosters. We have also been enjoying our pool and gardening lately since we traveled a lot this summer. I like my spirit most about myself. I am flawed and perfect at the same time, as I believe we all are. I know my heart guides me and I have to learn everyday how to be better than the last.

Thanks for sharing Amanda!

Cindy Watson – G.I.T Fit – Girls in Training

Cindy Watson I have been in children’s/family ministry for 20 years as a volunteer and as a member of a church staff. I started my own ministry in 2013 called Impress Family Ministry with the intention to help parents raise children who love God and hide His word in their hearts. Our first program is called G.I.T. Fit-girls in training. It is an after school club for girls that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual fitness. We have clubs at 6 schools in Fayette County and 1 in Coweta County. We also have a club that meets at New Hope Church on Saturdays. This summer, we have a group meeting on Monday mornings at The Bridge Community Center in PTC. During our time, we run working up to a 5K, prepare a healthy snack and have a Bible devotion time that focuses on issues girls struggle with during the preteen years. This summer our focus is fear, worry, anxiety, and stress. We recently held our first ever 5K to raise money to continue to offer the club for free to all girls. I love being with the girls and talking about what brings them joy and what worries them. I enjoy listening to their stories, their songs, and their opinions. Sometimes they make up dances they just have to show me. They help keep me young! My husband and I have been married for 33 years. Until 8/16, we lived all of that time in Fayette County. We have three children. The two oldest are married and the youngest in about to start his second year in college. I like to run, hike, and ride my bike. I like to visit my parents and sisters who all live in PTC. I like to smile and make other people feel good about themselves.

Thanks for sharing Cindy!
