I (Janice) have long sought a way to be healthy without going broke. I always felt it was so unfair that "health" insurance was so expensive and that we couldn't afford to cover ourselves or our kids. For a time my husband was covered since he is the "bread winner". We tried so many different MLM companies and their very "superior" brands of vitamin supplements. For a long time I felt that as long as we took the supplements, we could pretty much eat what we wanted. Deep down I knew this wasn't true but I did a pretty good job of deceiving myself! Then, we felt that if we raised our own meat, that would be better. As I realized that I was feeding the chickens and turkeys commercial feed, I knew they weren't too much better than store bought. So they went.

I had a home-schooling friend that introduced me to the Hallelujah Lifestyle. She gave me "Diet for a New America" to read first. What an eye opener! Then I read "Why Christians Get Sick". It all made so much sense. I shared what I read with my husband and son (then 12) -- mostly during meal times! -- and we all agreed that certain things had to go. Still, it was a slow process. We weeded out red meat, hotdogs, ham, bacon, etc. Then the milk went, but we clung to butter and cheese. The last items to go were butter and parmesan cheese.

At this point we were complete vegans. However, I still cooked most of the food. I couldn't get past a morning without my bagel or toast. (I had given up coffee a long time ago.) I knew we had to do better. The more I read. the more I felt the best diet was a raw diet.

On February 23, 2004 my husband declared (after I read him one more bit of info.) that he no longer wanted ANY cooked food. Period! The next day was his birthday and I had just gone food shopping and purchased all the "special" foods that go along with a celebration. What was I supposed to do with all of it.... We live on a tight budget and I couldn't just throw it away. So I made salads and some "banana" ice cream. (I had a Champion Juicer and we'd been juicing for a few years at this point.)

Well that was the beginning. Within a day or two our son and I went raw too. We maintained that schedule for 8 full months. My headaches went away, constipation was gone, my skin cleared up. Our son (Jefferson) would get these migraine headaches and we never knew why. He hasn't had one in a long time! My husband (Bill) lost about 30 pounds, which for him was a lot. We all feel so much better. We wake up quicker and clearer and without the alarm clock most mornings. Jefferson has decided to remain 100% raw and I think that is just fine. Bill and I eat a bit of cooked food. We have increased our carrot juice to 2-3 times a day. People watch us (and especially Jefferson who is now 13 years) eat salad and marvel that we enjoy it so much!

We didn't have huge health challenges when we started this. We just felt that there had to be a way to be truly health without going broke. I watched several Dr. Day videos during all that "research" time as well.

We are so thankful for Hallelujah Diet and the ministry that George and Rhonda began and continue to carry on today! We are also thankful for their generosity. We won the Green Star Juicer! We were so surprised! and thankful! I've loaned out my Champion to a friend with diabetes hoping she will try the Hallelujah Diet!

We had such a wonderful time in Shelby! All of you staff were so friendly and helpful. Thank you all for making our stay so meaningful.
