“Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you… have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.”

(Philemon 1:7, NIV)


Catch your second wind!


Second Wind’s vision is to serve cross-cultural missionaries by providing a peaceful place to rest, to be refreshed and renewed in their service.



The guest house is a 1700 square foot fully-furnished home and designed to provide a peaceful place to rest and have fun. There is a master suite with a queen-sized bed, as well as two additional bedrooms and a second full bath with a tub. The open kitchen, dining, and living room with a wood-burning stove allow for conversations and family meals. Equipped with a stereo, games, puzzles and books, there are many activities to enjoy as a family. The unfinished downstairs also offers a recreation room furnished with ping-pong and pool tables, darts and a table for putting together puzzles and playing games. This home also includes a beautiful deck for more great conversations. 


Second Wind  sits on 5 acres of land in Black Forest, Colorado at an elevation of 7464 feet above sea level. From the shade of Ponderosa pine trees to the trails throughout the area, there is plenty of space to enjoy creation. 

There are many family-friendly sight seeing options in the Colorado Springs and Denver areas. From museums and zoos to hiking and biking, there is an abundance of opportunities for fun and adventure. Follow this LINK to a list of Local Sights to See.


Renewal often comes through intentional conversations. At Second Wind, guests are offered the opportunity for debriefing, coaching, marriage intensive therapy.  We recommend services offered by Shelter Pines.

Julie Caldwell, Steward of Second Wind


In 1993, Julie began serving full-time in missions through sports ministry. After serving alongside missionaries around the world for 28 years and seeing their labor of love in making apprentices of Jesus, a dream was dropped into her heart in July of 2020. This dream included serving these frontline workers and their families by providing a private home on some acreage in beautiful Colorado as a place for respite. God provided such a place in the Spring of 2022, and she began laying the groundwork for their first guests to arrive in July.
