About Jim and Joyce
Jim is the Creator of Dream
Let me tell you something. I can write the socks off telling people about
Young Living, their products and the home business opportunity they offer. But when it comes
to writing something personal about ourselves, it isn't easy. However, at the same time
we understand you want to know something about us. So here goes.
Joyce and I are now in what some call our senior
years. We live outside Palmer, Alaska in the deep woods, on a mountainside, in a beautiful log
home. We love the incredible spicy, sweet air here, and enjoy the wildlife that hangs out around
our homestead (moose, bears, porcupines, wolves, robins, nuthatches, chickadees, etc.) We are
blessed to live in a wilderness paradise, where life is as it always has been. I mean exactly that.
Life here remains pristine (Click here to see some of our photos).
Joyce and I are so much alike it's downright
scary. We enjoy our free time prospecting for placer gold, and metal detecting. We are what the
modern world calls Preppers, although we have never thought of ourselves that way. We simply enjoy
the old ways of doing things. We enjoy salmon fishing, vegetable gardening, picking berries, keeping chickens and such, to keep our larder
I found Young Living back in 1995, and quickly
enrolled as a distributor. My member number is 20032.
interest in essential
oils comes from Bible Study, and from serving as a missionary inside the old Soviet
Union (Russia and Ukraine). While in
country, I stayed in various homes where people invited me. In doing so I noticed every home
had dried herbs hanging on the wall, and small dark jars on shelves containing something they
called healing oils. I had never heard of them.
It turns out there were no pharmacies like we enjoy here in the states, so every family was required to go
out into the country to cut various kinds of plants, and bring them to a place in town where
the plants would be distilled. For this effort, each family received a portion of the oils to
keep. This is how people at the time attended to their health and aches and pains.
I found this fascinating. So when I returned home,
I began researching healing oils, and studied their mention in the Bible. I wanted to know the
context they were used in and why, by the Israelites and early Christians. From my two year
study, I eventually wrote and published a book called "The Miracle of
Healing in Your Church Today." I also began a teaching
ministry called God's Healing
The first time I wandered onto the
Internet, it was for me like stepping out of Jurassic Park for the first
time. In doing so I realized the entire world was
like a theater, and I could be one of the players on stage. As a result, of the large numbers of
Young Living Members in our downline, we have yet to sponsor our first distributor
face-to-face. Each one came to Young Living as a result
of my marketing over the Internet, and follow-up by phone.
Young Living has been a blessing
to Joyce and me for many years. I am
speaking financially now. As our income grew from Young Living, it freed us to follow our
dream, to do the things we enjoy, and to buy our home. Young Living even put me on the road one
year to present Young Living Business Workshops across the country.
Although Dream Builders was created for
the benefit of the many Young Living members in our down-line, all Young Living Distributors are
welcome here. Our purpose is to help you attain your goals and enrich your life through Young
Living. No matter where you live, or your circumstances, the opportunity to free yourself from the
demands of time is right here before your eyes.
