Healing Broken Vessels, a nonprofit organization based in Lebanon, held its A Season of Elegance Fashion Show on Saturday afternoon.

More than 35 people modeled nearly 70 outfits provided by Bloem Kind Boutique, also in Lebanon. The event kicked off with a praise and worship performance by four young girls known as Angels in the Garden.

There was also a special dedication to Helen Catron, who was a grant writer for Healing Broken Vessels.

Diantha MeLeod, founder and director of Healing Broken Vessels, was happy of the turnout and support from the community.

“We are a non-profit 501c3 organization, and we help women in Wilson County,” McLeod said. “We equip, empower them and encourage them by offering classes such as basic computer skills and Microsoft Office. We also involve everyone in the community to come and teach women different courses on things like how to buy a house, budgeting their money, how to set goals and anything that would empower women to help them and would allow them to improve their lives.”

The women come to Healing Broke Vessels through “various ways. Sometimes, we get referrals from other organizations within the community. But it’s usually by word of mouth. We have a Facebook page and a website, and we are really trying to let people know we are here within the community,” McLeod said.

The fashion show benefitted the Grace Project, a five-week program that includes computer skills.

“We also have career assessments We also involve the community as much as possible with some of the curriculum that we have. Upon completion, we give a piece of clothing to the participants to help them with their job search,” McLeod said.

“We are here in this community, and we will make an impact and a difference not only in the lives of women, but also in the whole community.”

Healing Broken Vessels is at 311 S. College St. in Lebanon. For more information, visit Healing Broken Vessels on Facebook. The organization’s website is at hbvessels.org.

Ways to Stay Healthy for the New School Year

Don’t go back unprepared

Chances are, your kiddos have gone back to school. Unless you’re like us and still have a good three weeks to go … But still, the time is coming. Which means now is a really good time to guard yourself against those Back-to-School surprises by boosting your immune system.

There are several simple, natural ways to support a healthy immune system (that are safe for the whole family) and today I wanted to share the top methods my family uses. Our kiddos miss very few days of school and it’s not on accident.

1. Improve sleep

Sleep is a vital time of healing and restoration for our bodies.If you’re not getting enough, create a bedtime routine. Try going to bed a bit earlier. Say no to screens well before bed. Use calming essential oils before bed. Your body will thank you.

2. Reduce sugar

Sugar inhibits a healthy immune system response which is why I recommend avoiding processed sugars. I recommend making the switch to natural sweeteners (raw honey, pure maple syrup), but still eating them only on occasion because your body doesn’t differentiate between the two.

3. Use essential oils

Certain essential oils promote healthy immune function and protect against environmental and seasonal threats. Apply or diffuse immune boosting essential oils before school and/or before bed to support the immune system.

One of my favorite essential oils for supporting the immune system is a doTERRA blend called OnGuard. We use this oil like it’s going out of style (well, not that much, but everyone gets a good application before they head out the door in the morning) and it’s a favorite among my friends because it does such a good job at protecting against those threats that lead to missed school days.

Guard Your Family

For the next week, we’re offering a Back-to-School enrollment special: purchase any doTERRA starter kit of $100 or more through my special link (can’t be current doTERRA member) and I’ll send some #happymail your way.

Specifically, a roll-on bottle of On Guard Touch essential oil blend (pre-diluted) and On Guard Protecting Throat Drops($47 value).

These are some favorite go-to items for staying happy and healthy, whatever season it may be.

The GRAYCE Project

In order for us to develop into well-functioning adults, it is critical that adults learn key life skills. Usually this takes place during childhood, but this can be a constantly developing process. Life skills include critical and creative thinking, decision-making, effective communication, as well as skills for developing healthy relationships and a positive self-concepts. Life skills help people make responsible and informed choices and can promote healthy lifestyles as well as career skills. Life skills may be defined as “abilities for adaptive and positive behavior, that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life.”

Our six-week program is an integrated approach that helps to develop personal, interpersonal, dealing with procrastination, and alcohol and drug resistance skills. The program is designed to strengthen abilities in the following areas:

  • Career Development
  • Personal Management Skills
  • Time Management Skills
  • General Social Skills
  • And more…
