  4. I heard about your store from as I know him, Meatless Joe from St. Joseph Church New Waverly, who is also helping Father Kim of our parish. I am chemically dependent and am wanting to free myself from this.

    Email me and let me know if I might be able to order the produce, and if you might be able to ship to me out here in New Waverly, TX?
    I sometimes help my husband grow our own food, but when you are in addiction mode, nothing is easy. I really want to become chemically free and live a whole life in Christ Again. Sincerely,

    Deborah Creppon

  5. Shelley,
    Thanks so much for your help today! I enjoyed my first visit so much! I am looking forward to using all of my new goodies! So thankful that He has provided your store to help us with your needs! Even better being half a mile away! Doctors have given us such little hope and thankful that you are providing the gift of health! Firmly believing that this will help us fight all these female problems I have had for ten years and believing that we will be able to conceive naturally through this process! Looking forward to coming back and getting the false unicorn root in early November!
    With all my love,

  6. Shelley, do you have organic coffee that I can use for enemas?

    Hello, my name is Maricela and a friend told me about this place when she went to visit some friends out in Houston. My question is, do you know of a place like yours here in San Antonio, TX? My friend told me you had her do some kind of scan and she does not remember the name of that scan. My husband suffers frequent migraines and would like help on finding something natural to help with this issue. Nothing has helped take these migraines away, only Excedrin migraine helps ease it but not take away. Please help. Thanks.
