"Words cannot express the gratitude I have
for allowing me the privilege of enjoying Big Creek Ranch. From the moment I stepped out of the car, God breathed a
new beginning in my life. The sheer beauty of the Ozarks brought me a calmness of spirit, and peace beyond all
understanding. You simply cannot see the wonder without acknowledging how divine our creator truly is. The rest and
respite nurtured my soul and renewed my spirit. God is all around you at Big Creek Ranch; you see grace in small
"The Buffalo National River, and the creek were serene and awesome. I learned how to fish,
clean my fish, and then cook it! The rocks along the creek were as beautiful and unique as seashells on a beach. It
took me back to the simple pleasures in life that we often miss with our hurried schedules. I was able to enrich my
walk with the Lord, and truly find the joy in my life again. How is a simple "thank you" enough? I can promise you
this; I will use this opportunity to allow God to work through me to help others. I know the verses from Kings have
been claimed for the ranch. Truer works could not be spoken."
"Thank you for allowing me to find my joy,
happiness, and fortitude for the first time in years. I was graced with comfort and rest, and blessed by the
wonderful people surrounding me. I will always pray others can find the ranch as peaceful and hopeful as I did.
This experience changed my life."
