    Why Our Family Uses Essential Oils

    Pendleton Family Farm September 16, 2021

    Our family has been an avid essential oil user since 2013 when I joined Young Living.

    Our Favorite YouTube Channels

    Pendleton Family Farm August 15, 2021

    YouTube has become something of a common name around our home. The reason? Not only do we utilize the platform to learn anything and everything about farming/homesteads, but we started our own YouTube channel recently. I wanted a way to document our lives starting our very own farm, a place where our children could watch themselves grow up, and provide some kind of service/hope to others.  Without the families we’re…
