“I am not a doctor, nor am I a scientist, but I submit my life’s findings hoping to benefit any person that has ears to hear. If this information impacts or changes even one person’s life for the better it is worth the effort of sharing because every human life is of the utmost importance and significance.” -Marilee
Marilee Nelson co-founded Branch Basics to help others avoid the suffering she and her family endured. We are passionately committed to providing the safest formulation because we’ve seen first hand how a safe environment can make a life changing difference. Read Marilee’s full story to learn more.
Thursday night only!!!!
I spent time in marketing and corporate sales for brands like Lego & Crayola, became a Mom, moved from the big city of Dallas to the Texas Hill Country, and then moonlighted as the head marketing chick for our restaurant/bar concept called Grape Juice that my husband and I built from scratch…but knew something was still missing.
Then I got tight with God, had my creative soul re-awakened at Lucky Star Art Camp on the banks of the Guadalupe River, read The Secret Garden(for the first time), and knew…
THIS WAS MY CALLING: To write.
To write, INSPIRED by HER WORDS, about my REAL LIFE and HERS. The good, the bad, the funny, the smelly, the growth and the dirt… And to connect with those who might be inspired by our stories.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord,
“plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE.” -Jeremiah 29:11
“When you have a Garden, you have a FUTURE. ” -France Hodgson Burnett
FHB and Me:
She’s my Great-Great Grandmother, Frances Hodgson Burnett, famous writer of memorable books like The Secret Garden, Little Lord Fauntleroy and A Little Princess and I’m a 40-something, mother of two, creative soul, stumbling through life with a pen in one hand and a garden spade in the other.
Come along for the fun as I blow the book dust off her inspiring words and legendary life, then mix them with my personal stories for a multi-generational twist on the everyday.
“If you love The Secret Garden, the sunshine on your face after days of endless rain,
friends who tell you the truth or dreaming in full color,
I think you are going to like it here.” -Keri Wilt (Me)

In Honduras they experienced great social and financial hardship, and it was there that she was abducted and raped. In 1993 she immigrated to the United States, and years later met and married George Varian, who brought her to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. She, George and their son, Jeffrey make their home in Houston, Texas. Today, Jessica is committed to share with the world the good news of Jesus Christ and His faithfulness.
