Meet the family! We are Juicing People. Lee Ann (mom) started this juicing people business as an effort to, of course earn money, but also because she saw a need. She raised 8 children on a sparse income. Taught them how to work, grow a huge garden, put it up for the winter, and live on your spoils and sweat. She has a bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University in Home Economics Education. She jumped right into raising her kids with the skills she learned, and teaching them what she knows.
Juicing does have health benefits. We learn this as we try to Teach More Juicing People
As time went on and her children were all leaving the house and starting families of their own, she noticed that there were things that maybe weren’t so clear in their home training that seemed to catch some of her children off guard. She taught them to eat healthy, but didn’t explain the why’s. Why are we juicing people? Does it really make a difference to juice some of your fruits and vegetables? Why eat so much of those things? So they get out into the world and fall into the Standard American Diet, and diseases start to set into them and their children. She was seeing this everywhere, not just in her own family. So she went on a mission to spread the word about the health benefits of eating right.
The juicing people business grew and she recruited two of her daughters, Liesa and Katie. Liesa is her oldest and has 6 children of her own. She lives on a farm and knows the value of hard work. Her second child was badly burned at age 3 and then hit by a truck at age 6 and is now handicapped both physically and mentally. Another child has grand mal seizures after a bad fall. She has learned that when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade, through God’s guidance and direction in your life, because the lemonade that is going to help you is different from hers, but it will all taste good in the end. She is learning the importance of being independently healthy, as she lives in a remote area where they are not around doctors all the time.
We Learn Through Our Life’s Experiences.
Katie is one of her children who had disease set in. She was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis at age 22 (that’s a painful bladder disease). Then she learns from her doctor that there is no cure, but only drugs she can take to manage the pain. She bought into that idea for about a year, then went on her own journey to get rid of it. And that she did.
Now Katie has a child who is diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). She has one who is Celiac. Also she has a child who we are pretty sure is on the Asperger’s scale in symptoms of behavior. So the mission of healing diseases naturally continues. God gives us challenges so we can learn and grow and help others, not so we can give up and succumb to them. She is currently a student at Dr. Christopher’s School of Natural Health, is an avid herb, homeopathic, and aromatherapy user, and has an Energy Healing practice. She shares her journey and insights into vital things she has learned on our Blog. So sign up today if you haven’t already!
