As a child and even as a teenager I remember my parents telling me, "Be nice to everyone and treat them the way you want to be treated. You never know when and where you'll see them again." I'm so thankful for this philosophy in life because it has brought many blessings to me. They range from a hug at just the right time to invitations since I started this new journey as author and speaker.
One such blessing and friendship is with Dr. Mary Starr, the Total Wellness Doc and Mom. (To Visit her Facebook page, click on the above photo) Mary and I met years ago through one amazing person...my sister, Heidi Allen. I continue to be amazed and encouraged by Heidi's friends. Instead of saying "Heidi's friend....", I'm proud to call Mary and many others, MY friend too.
Mary is only one of many friends I'm blessed with in my life and only one who shares her gifts and love of the Lord to encourage me on this amazing journey. There isn't enough blog to list them all, isn't that an amazing thing to be able to say? I think so.
Although Mary started as Heidi's friend in high school, Mary and I connected after Heidi's kidnapping when I attended a Young Living Conference with my friend Laurie. I am avid user of Young Living's essential oils and I like their supplements too. I signed as a distributor and Mary Starr was one of my mentors and a friendship blossomed quickly and comfortably.
After a couple years of Mary's insightful and educated training, I decided to take a break from selling the oils in order to dedicate more time to my writing. Mary remembers me sharing this with her, to learn more, you'll have to watch the video below. God works in such cool ways.
Mary's marketing know-how helped to prepare me for the world of marketing my first book, Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey. Only God saw this coming. Mary and I haven't seen each other in a few years yet thanks to social media, we have kept in touch.
I was humbled and grateful for Dr. Mary's heart to help me share hope and Where's Heidi? with a broader audience. Once again God placed an angel in my path, thank you Mary. We enjoyed an afternoon of laughter, marketing pointers, taking turns snuggling her beautiful baby girl, visiting with my beautiful teen girl, and making a video. We're thankful for Mags willingness to assume the role of videographer. Not only did she run the camera, she captured an assortment of still shots to highlight our time together.
