Our Story

The peaceful retreat that has grown into New Beginnings Ranch started as an inspiration in the heart of one woman. When Evelyn Carlson Turner (Evie) retired in 2006, she deeply wanted her resources and time to be useful to God, and she began praying for His guidance. At first, she didn’t seem to receive any answer, but as she persisted in praying for God to lead her, she finally received her answer. In her mind’s eye, Evie saw a beautiful mountain landscape with pine trees and water; and immediately, she knew that God was asking her to build a retreat on that land. She called her son DuWayne to share what she was feeling led to do, and his excitement for the idea confirmed to her that this was God’s will.
