This year’s Young Living Convention theme was “Light the Fire.” We couldn't have chosen a better name! The speakers, meals together and oily classed ignited the Tree of Life team’s passion for wellness, purpose and abundance! If you missed out on the convention, no worries. Our leaders took the time to share their 2015 convention highlights. Read on and don’t forget to join us next year!
Highlight #1: Heartfelt Sincerity & Passion from our Founders and Team
All the oily talk was interesting, and it was good to hear how differently everyone uses the oils.
I enjoyed each of the inspiring speakers, but mostly I enjoyed hearing from Gary and Mary Young. Each time they spoke they did so with heartfelt sincerity. It seems apparent that their desire is to maintain the high standards that have already been set and truly want the best for Young Living and its members.

Highlight #2: Inspirational Humility from Gary Young
Kyle Maynard and Jon Acuff were amazingly inspirational and recharging for me, as well as many other presenters. But the main thing that keeps blessing me is the talk Gary Young did on the last day. I have heard him speak numerous times over the past 4 years. He has always been humble, grateful and passionate about his work. But this year, he went WAY beyond!
His humbleness really just burst forth…which I am sure sounds like an oxymoron….but seriously, he exuded the gratitude he has for his Father God. He was passionate about his desire to be found worthy of all the things God keeps showing him that His People need, and, amazingly, God has protected Gary SO many times as he has pursued his Young Living vision.
I am so honored to be a part of a company, and wider family at Young Living that has such respect for mankind, vision for the future, generosity for those in need, and a line of products that enables all that to happen! My life would not be as blessed as it is now, without Young Living!

Highlight #3: Time with Awesome Team Members
What an amazing two sessions that I was blessed to attend this past week at the Gaylord Texan! This was my 12th workshop to attend and I must say that it was the BEST ever! They just keep getting better each year. I believe that the two highlights for me was having either lunch or dinner with each of my AWESOME team members and getting to know them better and hearing Kyle Maynard speak. What a remarkably inspiring talk he gave at both sessions!

Highlight #4: The Story of Black Spruce Oil
I was truly inspired by the speakers, but I got goosebumps when Gary, introduced as The Modern Day Father of Distillation (love that), shared the struggles and obstacles that had to be overcome in building a new farm and distillery so we could have Black Spruce. Located in Ft. Nelson, BC, the new farm has a special ingredient: the electrical charge from the Northern Lights. It comes down to touch the trees. Yes. Really.
I also loved getting to meet, hang out and learn from my upline.

Highlight #5: Learning How to Make Small Changes with BIG Impact
I had many things I loved at the convention. I think the biggest thing I took away was about how to spend regular, even if small, amounts of time to connect with people. I also loved the YL fit exercise and nutrition class. I learned how to make small changes to control appetite, as well as not making excuses when it comes to making exercise a daily habit.

Highlight #6: Encouraged and Rebooted
I was so blessed to attend Young Living's ‘Light the Fire’ Convention. I was rebooted, encouraged, and got to meet many inspiring dedicated people. Seeing how not only the oils have changed and blessed so many, but the business of helping people has too!

Highlight #7: Focusing on a Life of Wellness
As a first-year attendee to the Young Living Convention I was both very impressed and a bit overwhelmed! I loved the classes and the speakers who seemed very knowledgeable about various topics. I loved learning about the oils of course, but even more so I loved seeing our founder, Gary and CEO Mary interacting with both their family and others. It was inspirational to hear that it is not always about curing diseases or treating ailments, but to live a life of wellness accompanied by the oils to achieve wellness, purpose and abundance!

Highlight #8: Annual Revitalization
I look forward to attending Young Living's convention every year because each year it seems they outdo themselves from the year before. Convention has been consistently a great place to revitalize and inspire yourself to be better in every area of your life. I loved hearing from Kyle Maynard, what an amazing speaker and the perfect person to tell me, "No More Excuses"! I also loved getting to reconnect with Gary and Mary Young and hear their passion and love for the oils and their distributors. They truly speak from the heart and it shows each time!
