My Review

I have really enjoyed this book !  One reason being that it is something I have longed to learn about and the other is that it is filled with a lot of educational thoughts and facts.  I have enjoyed the history of essential oils and also learning how they are made.  I have been taking notes as I go through each section as there was much I wanted to retain in memory for future use. Also the links to the websites of reference I will be checking out in the near future.

I have been looking for a in depth book to learn about essential oils and their uses, I have found this book to be just that book I was looking for !  If you also would love to learn about essential oils, I hope you will look into this book for your library at home or your kindle.  I love kindle as it allows me to take my books with me everywhere I go.

30 Days of Gratitude Adventure !


As I think back on this past year, I have so much to be thankful for and if your following me at faithfulacresbodysoulspirit on instagram or Linda Marie Finn on FB, or @FaithfulAcresBk on twitter  you have been reading my things I am thankful for !  If not you might want to go follow me on one or both ! If you are going to friend request me on FB, I suggest you message me first as I rarely approve anyone who I don’t know that well. Or leave me a note here and then friend me , be patient and I will get to approving you.

On the 20th of this month I have been in business for myself, working from home.  I have been sharing health and wellness with others as I share my story of how I so far lost over 64 lbs !  How I regained my health and am living my life more contentedly !

I truly was in a state of unhealthy living and needed something to change. I was afraid I was so sick I would die and so overweight that I couldn’t do much of anything or myself.  So your saying what changed right ? That’s what I was saying to myself, what do I change first and how do I make things better or me and for my family…

You know I have tried for most all my grown up years to lose weight and get healthy. Each time I would get pregnant I put on more weight and never seemed to loose more then 25 lbs, then I would plateau and never lose anymore.  So went the roller coaster ride and I was miserable and always sick and tired.

I decided if I was to get healthy I needed to change my diet !

I cut out a lot of breads, white sugar and started drinking smoothies for breakfast !  I would use yogurt, bananas, pineapple, strawberries and even used Green Powder Max in them.  I lost 10 lbs !!!!  I still felt awful…..

So then I got an herbal cleanse and used it daily for 3 weeks straight as prescribed by the maker.  I used it faithfully and although I knew I was doing something good for my body I started feeling sicker and weaker and my body was reacting to something I was doing.  I dropped another 5 lbs. Well that was the end of that detox as I just couldn’t deal with feeling like my BP and my sugar levels were going wacky !

I was ready to give up and then one day a lady on FB said Linda have you ever tried these products I am selling ?   Nope never heard of them, never have tried them , but ya everyone says their stuff works and will help me…. I was so skeptical and just said Ya Ya, when I have money to try it maybe I will do that ! The whole time thinking No I won’t , It won’t work !

Well, Diane mailed me a catolog and a sample of a product called Greens to Go ! One orange and one berry !  So the next day I got my bottled water that was chilled and poured in the powder and drank down this drink and in an hour or so, I was feeling pretty good !  I was perky and had more energy all day !

” Thought to myself, Ha, there has to be more to this

, it can’t be this easy to feel good “.

So Day 2, I got my water that morning and Drank the Orange Greens to Go and once again I had energy all day….Well Diane had sent me a sample of Thermofit also and on the bag wrote take two daily… ok I thought, so I was sitting at my desk and thought I will do that and I took two that morning…. !!!!

I couldn’t sit still, I felt like I was bordering on an anxiety attack, but decided well I will get up and go do the dishes , well for several hours I was singing, dancing, cleaning the kitchen !  So much energy that my kids thought I had lost it…

After all  only daddy sings and dances in the kitchen !

Got done and went to my computer and said Diane, you didn’t tell me this would make me feel this good, I cleaned the whole kitchen this morning and was singing and dancing !  She laughed and said, How many Thermofit did you take ?  I said you wrote on the bag to take two daily and I took two this morning ! She laughed and said well I would have started with one in the AM and one at Noon, not two at a time !  But Linda I am so glad your feeling better !

(Truth was I was still skeptical)

But being true to my nature, I jumped in with both feet !  I was sick and tired of being sick and tired ! And I was also sick and tired of being in debt and never having money to do anything in life….

I said well Diane if I am going to use this stuff I am going to sell this stuff !

November 20th, 2015

Bought my Business Building Kit $99 and Ordered my Greens (value size $79) and a bottle of Thermofit ($39) !

My first month I lost 25 lbs , got my first 4 Loyal Customers in a week, earned 2 wrap rewards ( 2 boxes of wraps at $25 a box) and $120 in free products !  I was commissions qualified by ordering my kit and I made $52 in commissions in less then 3 weeks !  Actually in one week as that is when I got my first 4 Loyals ! I was rocking, excited and thrilled as I had never made that much money in that little time with any company I worked in before. By month 3 and 4,  I was making $500 to $700 a month in commissions and bonuses !

(just so you know I had in my lifetime worked in Avon, Aloette, Amway, Shaklee, Cameo and Petra Fashions )  I had done my share of direct sales and MLM !

I learned two  things,  Not all businesses are alike !  and Not all products are alike !

I was faithful to use these products and still am today !  I have lost a total of 64 lbs ! and  I share My Story, Hope and Health with everyone who wants to hear about my testimony !

I love helping others find a healthy way of living for them, that includes clean eating, excersize ( not the kind that kills you) , how to decrease or rid your life of stress and just find happiness !

The nice thing is we have not gone a single month since I started my business without any income, we have always had an income now and that is one thing I am very thankful for !

Praise the Lord !  For without Him I am nothing and this would not be what it is today !

If you would like to talk about you health , life or your in need of an income, please feel free to contact me, I would be happy to listen, share with you and help you find an answer to your life’s issues…

Garcinia Cambogia Review


Triple Your Weight Loss With The Strongest Garcinia Cambogia Formula Available

Experts agree, the higher the percentage of HCA, the better the results. Our 80% HCA Garcinia Cambogia Extreme Weight Loss Formula is the strongest and highest quality formula available anywhere today.

Clinically Proven To Work

Revolutionary research has shown that Garcinia Cambogia provides the following benefits:

– Increases weight loss by 2 to 3 times what a person would lose with just diet and exercise alone
– Blocks fat production and turns fat into glycogen, which helps burn fat
– Suppresses appetite and curbs cravings
– Increase lean muscle mass
– Increases serotonin, leading to less emotional eating, improved mood, and better sleep
– Reduces cortisol, the stress hormone, leading to decreased belly fat
– Decreases bad cholesterol and promotes healthy cholesterol
– No side effects

Formulated For Maximum Weight Loss

Doctor recommended guidelines specify that HCA is absorbed better with mineral salts such as Potassium, Calcium, and Chromium.

Some manufacturers are saying that Calcium and Chromium prevent the absorption of Garcinia Cambogia, but it is actually the opposite that is true. Our formula is specifically designed to increase the bioavailability and efficacy of HCA.


My Review

Well as you know I have been testing serveral brands of Garcinia Cambogia.  I like this brand. This month alone i have lost 6.2 lbs and that makes a total of 11 lbs lost for me. So this is exciting as not only did I loose the weight I also managed to eat less carbs and sugar and lowered my A1c test to 5.4 down 3 points from 5.7 ! This product helps to curb your appetite so that you can loose the weight. Give it a try !

Premium Garcinia Cambogia with Green Tea – Weight Loss Formula and Weight Loss Plan Review


Why Our Garcinia Cambogia Product is Different ?
This unique formula contains natural non-stimulating ingredients for improved metabolic activity for healthy weight control and improved body mass. The ingredients work together for improved results.

There is a lot of misinformation and claims made about Garcinia Cambogia. Our product was formulated after reviewing the data and is intended as a complement to a proper weight loss plan.(To help our customers we provide a 23-page diet and exercise plan with this product so our customers succeed)

Why our product uses Garcinia Cambogia with Green Tea and Chromium for Weight Loss ?
– Hydroxycitric Acid(from Garcinia Cambogia fruit) helps block liver enzymes in the body from converting carbohydrates into fat and works as a natural appetite suppressant. Also helps with glycogen formation(highly usable form of energy for muscles to burn).
– Green Tea extract has natural flavonoids called catechins which can help increase fat burn and promote the release of fat from fat cells to help muscles burn fat more efficiently during exercise (Many overweight people experience difficulty in naturally releasing fat from fat cells).
– Chromium plays a vital role in the metabolism by decreasing the conversion of carbohydrates into fat. Assists in insulin response and lower insulin levels which can reduce the conversion of carbs into fat after eating.*

Why Choose Apex Natural Garcinia with Green Tea Formula?
1. Unique Formula with Specific Synergistic Ingredients.
2. 100% Quality, Standardized Ingredients for Optimal Results.
3. NO Fillers, NO Stimulants, NO Other Ingredients. Manufactured and tested in the USA.
4. Purchase includes diet and exercise plan to help customers achieve long term results.
5. Better Value: 50% More than Most Brands & Unique Formulation.

Finally something that helps me stay on track to help me loose weight and feel better.  I can brag a bit and say I have already lost 5lbs ! I think this is helping me to burn fat and have more energy.  I am loving this and the weight loss plan included with it. If you want to loose weight and need some extra help, try this !
