In 2015, Lynette had a life-changing experience with Young Living essential oils, and now she enjoys sharing her story while helping others find wellness. What started as a journey to chemical-free living has become a thriving business with a community of wonderful friends. Lynette truly believes that the Lord has created the oils and that everyone can benefit from them!
As a graduate from two Bible colleges, Whitney landed her passion for ministry through her gifts of writing and editing. She later stumbled on the life-changing world of essential oils through Young Living that gave her an unexpected healing in her body. She now owns her own company as an educator in the health and wellness space and continues to offer her freelance writing and editing services to clients throughout the US. Getting to share stories through the gift of words and watch God’s “medicine” heal others are two of her favorite things.
In her younger years, Mo Isom was an All-American goalkeeper for the LSU Women’s Soccer team and the first female to train with and try out for an SEC men’s football team. Her life was riddled with great personal tragedy – including battling an eating disorder, overcoming the suicide of her father, struggling with promiscuity, and surviving a horrific car accident. But by the grace of God, alone, she encountered the love and mercy of Jesus – the Great Deliverer and the One who makes all things new. She is now a Holy Spirit-filled daughter of God who isn’t afraid to speak bold, raw, courageous Truth to a generation being crushed under the weight of their sin, their circumstances, and the lies of the enemy.
She has the incredible privilege of communicating by authoring books and blogs, speaking all across the country, developing creative content, and engaging the masses on social media. Her three books Wreck My Life: Journeying from Broken to Bold, Sex, Jesus, and the Conversations the Church Forgot and Fully Known: An Invitation to True Intimacy with God have reached tens of thousands of people worldwide and her messages of hope, transformation and timely, Holy Spirit-led revelation have been featured on countless other platforms.
She is a wife to Jeremiah and a mom to two spunky daughters, Auden and Asher, and two sweet sons, Ronan and Elijah! Atlanta, GA is home base for her family and for the incredible team God is building around them as they carry out ministry in Jesus’ name. Learn more about Mo at moisom.com or on Instagram @moisom.
