about me
Laurie Thompson

Howdy, I’m Laurie, and welcome to Essentials of Wellness. I’m so happy that you’re here.

I am a transplanted Texan blooming where I was planted in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I am wife to my gorgeous hunk-of-a-man Canadian husband Peter for twenty-six years, mama-bear to my daughter Madison, and three boys Grayson, Malcolm and Kevin, mama-in-law to Steven and Courtney, and grandmother to my grand-sugars Clara and Caspian. I am also the devoted custodian of our fur-babies Olive and Elliot.

I have been a long-time believer in the mind/body connection to health and wellness, and I fully believe that God brought it all together for me by giving me the privilege of being an educator with Young Living Essential Oils. If I were going to give myself a title, it would be Wellness Coach. I do not have a formal education in health and wellness, but my life has been my classroom. It has had its share of ups and downs, and it is those life experiences that have taught me tremendously about the value of frequent self-evaluation and inner healing work especially when our physical health has been affected. My passion is to educate people on living healthier and more vibrant lives through the use of essential oils and toxic free health, beauty, and cleaning products. It is such a privilege to run my business for God’s glory and through that provide finance to give to the Legacy program at our church. I am living the dream, and I can’t wait to wake up each day to pursue the opportunity to change people’s lives by perhaps opening their eyes to a new way of thinking.  I spent a great deal of my life fearing that I was too much and yet not enough. Thankfully, I have been liberated from that lie and am now victoriously living out this season of my life unafraid and unapologetically with an incredible sense of purpose.
