Honoring The Life Of D. Gary Young

 In Leadership, Team Swiftfire, Young Living

I literally felt myself drop from the inside out, like the floor just dropped and disappeared. He’s gone.??


It honestly doesn’t even seem possible that such a powerful creative force of loving presence can be gone.

I had the pleasure and honor of knowing Gary well. He was my mentor, my teacher, a “dad” and he was my friend. He helped me know and Re-member God, Love and Truth. I have traveled and worked with him for the last 10 years. We have been around the globe together and we have toured many many states, countries and continents.

In the USA? Yes, all over the nation including Alaska and Hawaii. Elsewhere, several parts of Australia multiple times, Oman, New Zealand, several islands, Ecuador several times, Dubai, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Turkey, France several times, Granada, Croatia, Canada and more …..

We have literally trekked jungles, forests and deserts.

We found Queen Sheba’s distillery and remnants of her palace, we found Job’s tomb, we water tubed at the Atlantis in Dubai, and zip lined and built schools in Ecuador, we found the oldest Frankincense tree recorded in Oman, ate dinner on the border of Yeman, loved on Orphans in Croatia, toured Paul of the Bible’s historic journey in Turkey, we have hiked, rock climbed, we flew in helicopters and planes, we four-wheeled, dune buggied, we have done numerous cruises, we have def planted, we have def harvested, and found lots and lots and lots of new plants to distill!

We worked in clinics and spoke at conferences, we spoke about everything, love and God, and marriage, Divine Health and honor.

He taught men and woman how to love God, their spouses and kids – How to live in Divine Health through every single choice .

How to BE and DO the impossible daily.

He was a man of excellence. A modern Daniel in governments and nations. As we traveled, people honored and revered him immensely and he always walked humbly, loving well.

He barely slept. He barely ate. (Always have snacks and nitro in your bag if you are with Gary.) He worked from sunrise to sunset …first one in and last one out. He worked harder then all of us together. He was and is unlimited ENERGY⚛️.

He constantly reminded us to stay tuned to what God was speaking through dreams, signs, animals, nature. And he demonstrated following that Voice no matter!

He prayed and prayed ….sometimes hours with people answering questions, listening and loving .

He prayed for you. He prayed for me.

He was there for me in my personal health crisis more than once and he literally saved my life twice. He nursed me in the clinic . He was there for me with the loss of my babies, he was a counselor and mentor in my previous marriage and the light for me now.

I have watched him in dignity handle difficult situations over and over and I have celebrated with his success. We have cried countless tears together in joy and sorrow. He cried with all of us. (“Darn Allergies” he’d say.)

He came to our cities rescue when we had the flood in 2016 – conference calling us that next day, talking us through the tragedy giving us hope. He sent supplies to 1,000 plus who lost their homes here.

He sent help to Texas, Florida and California the same year due to flooding and fires …. many in my ministry, always helping and always loving generously .

He spoke Truth in me like a plumb-line. I still hear his words now.

He taught me about abundance, and forgiveness, acceptance and hope. He taught me how to identify limited beliefs and how to change them into God’s Truth. He showed me how to stand up for Truth in dignity and integrity.

He taught me about money, generosity, investing, giving ….through words and deed.

We had church on ships and busses, car rides, on the phone, in his home ….and so many many other places . He was church. He is church.

He’s changed my life, my families lives and my ministry forever and anyone who knows me knows this is true .

How do I honor such a man who loved so well. I often referred to him as “Love on legs.”

How do we live in a world without Gary?

Gary is larger than life …. literally.

 ??When I saw the time he passed 3:55, I immediately thought to look it up and find his last message to us all.?

#355 Hebrew “ayalah” “doe hind.”

One of the scriptures this was attached to was Gen 49:21 “Naphtali is a hind let loose which yields lovely fawns.”

“Let loose” here means “to extend out , send out.”

He’s sending us out.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, еxcept a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.”

The other scripture connected to #355 “ayalah” was 2 Samuel 22:34 — “He maketh his feet like hinds’ [feet], And setteth me upon my high places.”

This makes me cry. ?

First of all “Hinds feet in High Places” is one of my very very favorite books.” Have you read this?

Please do. So perfect. So true.

And secondly again …perfect .

HE does just that.

Over the years Gary has given me so much courage to do and BE the impossible.

He makes my feet firm and able.
He set me Secure and Confident on heights.


God used and still uses Gary to settle us firm, secure and able upon high places. He deposited so much in us. He still is depositing. And he sets us confidently on heights to carry on Truth.

What more can we do? What else is there?

Yes, it felt like the very floor under me disappeared and yet look…. He/he sets us firm, Secure confidently on heights to continue Truth and Love.

??????MAYBE it’s NOT THAT THE FLOOR just dropped and disappeared!? MAYBE IT’S THE CEILING THAT JUST VANISHED!???????

I ask you all who knew him and know him to honor him with your life. Carry his Light like lovely fawns sent out.

Carry on his Love with in everything and all you do, say, think and feel.

I leave you with two sections of “Hinds Feet and High Places.” One about doing the impossible and seeing Transformation (two of Gary’s favorite oils are Believe and Transformation) God did so much transformation through Gary. He gave us courage to believe God for this ourselves :

The Shepherd laughed too. “I love doing preposterous things,” he replied.

“Why, I don’t know anything more exhilarating and delightful than turning weakness into strength, and fear into faith, and that which has been marred into perfection.

If there is one thing more than mother which I should enjoy doing at this moment it is turning a jellyfish into a mountain goat. That is my special work,” he added with the light of a great joy in his face.

“Transforming things —to take Much-Afraid, for instance, and to transform her into—“

He broke off and then went on laughingly. “Well, we shall see later on what she finds herself transformed into.”

??Yes, we will.

And two :

“She bent forward to look, then gave a startled little cry and drew back. There was indeed a seed lying in the palm of his hand, but it was shaped exactly like a long, sharply-pointed thorn… ‘The seed looks very sharp,’ she said shrinkingly. ’Won’t it hurt if you put it into my heart?’

He answered gently, ‘It is so sharp that it slips in very quickly. But, Much-Afraid, I have already warned you that Love and Pain go together, for a time at least. If you would know Love, you must know pain too.’

Much-Afraid looked at the thorn and shrank from it. Then she looked at the Shepherd’s face and repeated his words to herself.

’When the seed of Love in your heart is ready to bloom, you will be loved in return,’ and a strange new courage entered her.

She suddenly stepped forward, bared her heart, and said, ‘Please plant the seed here in my heart.’

His face lit up with a glad smile and he said with a note of joy in his voice, ‘Now you will be able to go with me to the High Places and be a citizen in the Kingdom of my Father.’

Then he pressed the thorn into her heart. It was true, just as he had said, it did cause a piercing pain, but it slipped in quickly and then, suddenly, a sweetness she had never felt or imagined before tingled through her. It was bittersweet, but the sweetness was the stronger.

She thought of the Shepherd’s words, ‘It is so happy to love,’ and her pale, sallow cheeks suddenly glowed pink and her eyes shown. For a moment Much-Afraid did not look afraid at all.”

??If you Love Him like Gary did and does ….Carry the Seed of Love, like a doe or fawn sent out. I’m so happy to have known him. I’m so happy to Love.

“A strange new courage has entered me .”

I’m so happy I stand Secure on Hinds Feet in High Places with God AND Gary in my heart.

I love you Gary.??

Forever, Sharnael

    A beautiful tribute, Sharnael! A fan of Hind’s Feet myself, & that passage could not have been more perfectly placed! This is a tough truth to grasp, but for such a seed to be planted, the harvest must expected to be glorious! God’s blessings!
