What is Your Passion?

Both Gayle and I recently finished a book called The Passion Test, by Janet Atwood.  It has given us lots to talk about and think about concerning what we consider to be our passions in life.

Obviously, Glynne’s Soaps is a passion for both of us, but not just because it is our business and livelihood.  There is a reason that we are passionate about all natural soaps, and if you spend any time with us at all I’m sure you find that out fairly quickly.

There is so much stuff out there that people take for granted.  ”If it wasn’t safe, my vet wouldn’t be selling it”  ”If it was harmful, you couldn’t buy it at the grocery store.”  But that isn’t always the case.  Topical flea treatments are concentrated pesticides.   Soap (actually most of it is detergent, not true soap) that you buy at the grocery store is full of harmful chemicals.  We’ve discussed the whys and hows many times before, so I won’t repeat all of it.  But it is the reason we are passionate about all natural.  It is safer for you and your pets.  We want to make sure that you and your pet live long, healthy and happy (and clean!) lives.

Of course, we have other passions.  We are passionate about dalmatian rescue and participating in agility with Wrigley.  Gayle is passionate about social media, and Jenn is passionate about participating in triathlons.  But our main focus is on creating a quality product that is safe for you, your family and your pets.

What are you passionate about?  Leave a comment and let us know.  Everyone that leaves a comment, letting us know at least one thing they are passionate will be entered into a drawing to win a free sample stack of Glynne’s Soaps (including shipping).  The winner will be chosen on March 3rd.

    The geek in me loves analyzing environmental policy. The rest of me is pretty passionate about surfing.

    I’m passionate about gardening. Love to watch things grow. The exercise is good for my mind, body and soul. Although I grow several things indoors, I’m ready for Spring. I need to dig my fingers into some dirt!

    I’m passionate about gardening, too. I can hardly wait until Spring! I love the warmth and smell of the dirt, and get great satisfaction out of growing veggies and flowers!

    I am also passionate about pet rescue, but since I am experiencing a bit of winter weariness and dreaming of spring I will tell you another of my passions – Garage Sales! I consider it exercise entertainment on a budget. Most of what I buy are for the animals, but the hunt for a bargain is 100% my pleasure and passion.

    Hi Dog’s Mom

    We also are passionate about rescue! We actively participate in Dalmatian Rescue but wish we could save every animal.

  9. Glynne says:

    Hazel, I wish I could be passionate about gardening! Unfortunately, my brown thumb tends to steal the joy :)

    While there are many things I’m passionate about, the one that has really taken over my life this year is the passion to know my Savior more. I have been spending more time in prayer and the Bible and have been trying to find myself in the center of God’s will.

    I am passionate about gardening! Nothing like feeding your family things that are grown fresh in your garden and the creations that can be made with them!

  26. Christina says:

    I’m very passionate about learning and reading! This includes the fields in which I’ve worked, poetry, art, journalism and TV production. Currently I’m passionate about creating collages to show in galleries, and writing music and movie reviews for online sites! I am also very passionate about animals: I have many parrots and have loved birds ever since my father helped me raise a meadowlark when I was ten (whose mother and siblings were killed in their nest during a storm). I also have a beautiful German-Shepherd Husky mix, Birdie, whom I inherited from my mother, who is loyal, sweet, intelligent and compassionate, and a Russian Blue cat named Miss Kittica Kitty! I love all of God’s creatures (humans included!) and am passionate about them!

  27. Laura says:

    I’m passionate about animals and the natural world. I’d love to have some goats or chickens someday!

    I’m passionate about COOKING! I love to cook. it’s my mode of relaxation and a way of expressing my creativity and love for those I cook for. Mostly, I cook for others so that makes me wanna do better with each every try. I love to meld flavours together, try new stuff, come up with the quirkiest pairings and see if they work. LOL… my poor hubby.
