The Beginning of my R + F Journey

I first heard about Rodan and Fields, probably about 3 years ago. I would see it occasionally on Facebook through my friend Katie and think, "That's cool, but those sort of businesses aren't for me." I also didn't have the extra funds for skin care. Duane and I had just moved from Georgia to Tennessee and we were trying to get his musical career off the ground and trying to find our place in Nashville. We had left the comfort of our church family and we were desperately searching for community. 

For the next three years, I watched Katie grow her business and have a lot of successes. All the while, I was busting my butt as an RN and wondering if I could really work as a nurse for the next 35+ years. At the same time, my longing to expand our mini-family was growing and I couldn't wrap my head around how I would be able to 1. leave my baby at home all day, and 2. afford child-care. I was praying for God to show us his path, to guide us and to provide a way for us to move forward, out of this weird limbo-rut that we seemed to be stuck in. And for the icing on the cake, I was missing out on my nieces and nephews as they grew up far, when we could only afford to go see them once or twice in a year. 

Fast-forward and I decide to give Rodan and Fields a try. Just the products though, because I have a full-time job and I'm not a sales woman. I gave in and tried the Unblemish regimen for adult acne. I have suffered from blackheads, breakouts and cystic acne for as long as I can remember. It seemed like I had tried everything, even prescription products, and nothing really helped. It only made my skin irritated and dry. With the money-back guarantee offered by R+F, it really was a no-risk last ditch effort before trudging back to the dermatologist office. 

So I placed my order, and patiently waited
 to be disappointed yet again. 

To be Continued!
