Holly and I are now here in Colorado full time. No, we are not retiring. We are simply reorganizing for the next chapter of our lives.
After my heart attack almost three years ago, it was clear my lifestyle would have to change. I am feeling great and I am on a great cardio program. It’s just that I cannot keep the pace I kept in the Washington, D.C. area. After much prayer and much counseling from old and wise friends we were advised overwhelmingly to set up base here in Colorado and let people come to us.
The thought was that we are in the moment of our lives were we are teachers and mentors and what better place is there to have people retreat for teaching and mentoring than the Rocky Mountains. God’s beauty here is overpowering!
So, we are working to develop our property here into a small retreat destination for instruction, counseling, refreshment and renewal. Plus lots of great times, memories, adventure and laughter!
We wish to keep the capacity to four couples or eight men or eight women per group. We want to have a relaxing personal time with everyone. Also the ATV scenic picnic adventures in the high country and fishing trips need to be around four ATV’s to be manageable when we strike out on an adventure trek.
I am cleared to make one trip away a month. We often come back to the DC area as we are still involved with some gatherings there.
We will still be speaking at events in different parts of the country from time to time. (Maybe cheat a bit on the one trip thing.)
We call our little ranch Morning Star. We love it! Jesus was referred to as The Morning Star in The Revelation. The Morning Star is the first Star you see coming out from the darkness. It is a Christian symbol of the resurrection. Praise the Lord and Amen!! 🙏
We have a few folks that have expressed interest in helping us with the building fund to do the additions to give our guest’s some of the greatest days of their life!😄😄😎😎✝️
If this is something you would enjoy being a part of let us know.
On a personal note: Smoking Hot Holly has been and is taking great care of me. She stepped down from 20 years of teaching the women’s CBS class in McLean. I repeatedly told her not to step down until she felt the Lord was leading her to do so.
Is it a coincidence that as she saw me slow down a bit, it was then she felt led to move to Colorado? She is a selfless angel to me and everyone else. By the way, she already has a group of gals going here in this little rural mountain town. They meet at the Custer County library on Thursdays. They call themselves “Sold Out Sisters”. Yeehaaa!
The love of Christ be with you all,
Jerry and Smoking Hot Holly
