Early Foundational History

A Sacred Heritage—Juliette’s Physician Grandfather

The grandfather of Wellhouse Ranch Ministries’ founder was a physician, surgeon, and diagnostician who set a remarkable precedent. He was a man of deep compassion and he stood for the rights of minorities long before it was popular to do so. The good doctor founded two hospitals and a nursing school in rural America. Keeping the doors of his practice and hospital open throughout the Great Depression, he never turned anyone away because of an inability to pay.

For years, following the example of her grandfather, Juliette used her own resources to bring hope and healing to those from under-served rural communities in Idaho, Eastern Washington, Montana, and Wyoming. She also has served those among the very wealthy, providing for them a place where unconditional love is freely offered and healing is not for sale. Juliette also has served those in crisis, grief, and loss through four national disaster hurricanes. She served with 24/7 nursing care, taking a temporary leave to assist her beloved senior stepdad, a retired psychologist and author, who was dying of Parkinson’s Disease. Her training in grief recovery and outreach to those in medical crisis expanded to a deeper personal level when four out of five members of her own family faced the life threatening challenge of cancer. Juliette’s family enjoyed sharing many fond memories of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming in her formative years. Wellhouse Ranch Ministries was birthed at the foot of the Tetons, portrayed in our website by the lone Moose traveling through a snow covered meadow.

Juliette sees this and other wilderness areas of unspoiled creation as a hospital for the healing of the human heart.

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains;

From where shall my help come?
My help comes from the LORD,

Who made heaven and earth

Psalm 121:1-2

A Statement From Juliette

Incredibly, each member of my immediate family has faced the challenge of life-threatening cancer. Someone once said, “When you learn that someone you love is dying, it feels as though time skips a beat—and when the clock resumes ticking, nothing is ever the same again.” I believe that God walks with us in such intimacy that He weeps with us in the sorrows and losses of our lives, calling us to this depth of love for one another. I believe that my own journey through grief has prepared me for service to others who are traveling through the wilderness of suffering, seeking a place to heal. As I invest my life in this dream and vision for faith and for service to humanity, may it be a place where people see the light on in the window, welcoming them to come in out of the storms of life, finding Wellhouse Ranch Ministries: a legacy of hope, healing, renewal and unconditional love—for those in pain of any kind. As we seek to live well this gift of time, will you join with me in lighting that lamp as a beacon of hope for our world?

He Heals the Brokenhearted and Binds Up Their Wounds 
                                                                                                                  ~ Psalm 147:3
The Nicene Creed 
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty,
 maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. 
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, light from light, true God from true God, 
begotten, not made, one in Being with the Father.
For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born 
of the Virgin Mary and became truly human.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered, died and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end. 
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father (and the Son),
Who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
Who has spoken through the prophets. 
We believe in one holy Catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
