TYSON MATTHEW KOTTELENBERG


"The Lord is faithful to all His promises, and loving toward all He has made." Psalm 145: 13b

This blog is about our eight year old son Tyson. Tyson was born with serious complex congenital heart defects, (Hypoplastic Right Ventricle, Tricuspid Atresia, Coarctation of Aorta, Transposed Great Arteries, with VSD and ASD.)
In short, the right side of his heart is completely under-developed (he has half a heart,) his main arteries are mixed up, and his aorta is narrow. He has undergone 3 open-heart surgeries and 5 heart cath procedures to try to 'repair' his heart. Sadly, Tyson has also been diagnosed with pulmonary vein stenosis, a fatal disease in the veins of his left lung. Typically, having the 3 palliative surgeries buys children with single ventricle hearts many years before eventually needing a transplant. But because of the narrow pulmonary veins, this increase in pressure is causing his blood to shunt the opposite way across his Fontan fenestration and surgeons are not able to close the fenestration. As a result, he remains on coumadin and is heading down the transplant road faster than we'd originally anticipated. He's still doing AMAZINGLY well all things considered. We entrust our dear son into the hands of God, knowing that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him!

My New Passion & Calling



A little over a year ago, my first box of dōTERRA essential oils arrived at my doorstep. If only I could have known how these oils would change my health and the health of our family, I surely would have purchased more than the smallest kit – the Family Physician kit!!
The impact that these oils had on our family was so significant that within a few months of using the oils, I started sharing and teaching others so that they too could be empowered and experience the purity and potency of these oils. I went from teaching my first class in March 2015 to becoming a Silver-ranked leader in the company within 9 months, all because of the pure amazing-ness of these little oils. 

I’ve always wondered what God saw in me that He would give me the special title of "Heart Mom" but it is because of this journey, that I am now known as the ”Essential Heart Mom.” People have said to me, “I don’t know how you do this business with five children, and with all you have going on with Tyson.” Are you kidding me?!? It is BECAUSE of Tyson that I have found a new calling; it is BECAUSE of our journey with him that I am able to give you a powerful testimony of what these oils can do. It is my passion to help other families NOT have to go through what we went through with Tyson. 


In the past year, I've had the privilege of not only empowering other women to take care of themselves and their families better, but I've also been able to contribute to our family's income significantly by empowering other women to do exactly what I've done.
If you've been searching for something different or wondering how you can make a difference in others people’s lives, then the time is NOW. With dōTERRA launching into Canada in June, the essential oil industry is going to absolutely explode in Canada! Who wants to join me in an essential oil revolution? 


Please see below for details and email me at melissakottelenberg@gmail.com if you want to partner with me in an essential oil revolution. 


*Must not already have an active wholesale account with doTERRA
*Must be willing to spend $100/ month on doTERRA product (trust me, this is the best thing you'll ever invest in for yourself and your family. It took me only TWO months to cover the cost of my oils and now I am also able to bless others by giving away free stuff!)
*Must be willing to commit a minimum of 10 hours per week to your doTERRA business.
