Today’s guest on The Shane Sams Show is Anne Beiler, founder of Auntie Anne’s! Anne has an amazing story that you’re not going to want to miss.
Anne was born and raised in an Amish community in Pennsylvania, where she learned an incredible work ethic. She started baking in large quantities at 11 years old to help her family. Years later, she met and married her husband, Jonas, and they were living a happily married life with their children until a tragic event changed their lives forever.
Jonas and Anne’s peaceful life as newlyweds and young parents went into a tailspin after the death of their 19-month-old daughter, Angela Joy, who died tragically in a farming accident in 1975. Anne, in her mid-20s at the time, found herself descending into a world of darkness and depression, and eventually on the brink of suicide. Despite being a faithful churchgoer, she didn’t feel she could share her pain with friends or family members. She became silent and lost her voice.
After that, Anne’s husband became a counselor, but he wanted to do it for free, so Anne needed to start working. This is where Auntie Anne’s was born!
