This memoir is a powerful and gripping account of Vera’s life growing up in a polygamist cult in Mexico and her journey to escape the manipulation and brainwashing she experienced from an early age. Through this memoir, Vera shares her struggles and triumphs as she sought to break free from the oppressive control of her father, husband, and polygamist God. Her story is one of hope, resilience, and the indomitable human spirit.
Vera’s journey did not end with her escape from the cult. Instead, she went on to build a successful business and pursue her passions for psychology, health, and wellness.

We talk about
Told from a young age that women were inferior and God was to be feared, she experienced manipulation, brainwashing, and sexual violation. She was married off at the age of sixteen, giving birth to three children and believing that a woman could not get to Heaven without a man. However, when a seed of a single idea she read in a hidden book began to take root, she started to question her beliefs and ultimately escaped to the United States with her three children. Now, as the founder of Purevee Organics, Vera is passionate about empowering women to connect with their mind, body, and soul and break free from mental bondage.
Fast forward to 2002 and we find Vera Laree mustered up the courage and escaped to the United States with her 3 children, a suitcase of clothes, and $500 to her name. From there, she started a successful maid service, now owned by her children. She began devoting her time to the study of psychology and all things spiritual. Connecting with mind, body, and soul became important to her, and it didn’t take long until she developed a passion for health and wellness. She then became the owner of a franchised gym and a small wellness studio, allowing her to teach clients to connect with their bodies by breaking free from their own mental bondage. Eventually, she founded Purevee Organics, a supplement company for women. Vera believes that taking care of your health is a crucial part of your self-love and confidence, hence the company motto: a little self-love in every bottle. Her ability to think outside the box is what led her to her dream career, where she mentors individuals to also think outside the box when it comes to their self-love and confidence. Empowering women is her biggest passion. She holds certifications in Therapeutic Coaching, NLP, Positive Psychology, HNLP, and personal training.
