Ron & Mary Ellen


Ron and I moved to Colorado Springs in the fall of 2016, knowing that God moved us here. I am originally from Colorado and am a mountain girl at heart, so this was an easy transition for me. Ron is retired from the Navy and knew he was ready for a change. He was not quite sure where his wife was taking him but was up for the next adventure together. God provided a beautiful home in Black Forest on five acres and we knew immediately it was meant to be shared with others! We love sharing life together, hence the name of our venue, Shared Life. 
We feel Shared Life is the perfect location if you are looking for a charming, peaceful, intimate setting amongst five acres of ponderosa pines to capture life's most important events and celebrations. We can’t wait to experience them with you.


We couldn't have had a better place to celebrate our son's 1st birthday! He had an amazing time and the atmosphere was spectacular for our theme! From the moment you drive into the venue, it just feels like you're in a special place. Mary Ellen and Ron are some of the best people you'll meet and we feel blessed to have made such wonderful and lasting memories on their property.
