    I thank God for people like you Mary, that inspire me, I have a college education but I had several part time jobs and chose to devote a major part of my life to be a stay home mom. Even when I became a widow because I don’t have family here and my 2 sons need more of my presence rather than extra money. So while I start my work journey with YLEO, I will be delighted to be more inspired by your lives.

That was so awesome to see in person – so exciting to see him in action and living his dreams. Thank you for building this company so WE distributors can too live our dreams! I love yours and his story! I am proud to be a part of YL!

  • Stanlee Palmisano March 12, 2016 - 9:18 am Reply

    I’m blessed and highly favored because I entered Young Living the company, during the time when we could sit, have dinner and hear some of these stories. I must say, those times were like listening to a fable filled with the most unbelievable incidents of hardships and victories. The results I’ve seen with my own eyes, regarding the unfolding of the farm from Ecuador, seemed impossible to have been able to be done within the time frame I saw it happen. I heard Gary say that he himself didn’t understand how wonderfully the farm developed into the magnificent farm it is today in such a very short time. I think I know how. Inspiration, Vision, Belief, Dedication, and then he doesn’t sleep! This recording of how Mary’s love inspired her to write these stories. Mary wants all readers to experience some of the inspiration that Gary’s spirit brings to all that he does through his successful farms all over the world, to help fulfill his mission.
    I visited 3 farms, and am looking forward to visiting all the others in the world. This is a slice of an almost not believable but true depiction of Gary’s journey to fulfill his destiny in this life.
