About Us

Our History


It was because of a strong desire to combat the orphan crisis, as well as strengthen families who have adopted or are involved in foster care, that Beckoned was established in 2011 by Steve and Lisa Stucky.

Beckoned began when Steve and Lisa Stucky wanted to do what little they could to improve the quality of life for families in developing nations.  Partnering with artisan groups led to job creation, making it possible for these moms and dads to keep their children, rather than relinquish them to orphanages or international adoption.  Over the next few years, Lisa would have the opportunity to visit each artisan group in Rwanda, Tanzania, Haiti, and India.

Meanwhile, back in Colorado, Lisa connected with local adoptive and foster moms, many of whom were longing for support and connection.  Their need for support inspired Lisa to host the first annual ladies’ retreat in the spring of 2013.

To date, the Stuckys continue to create job through the sales of artisan goods from developing nations.  Every September, the ladies’ retreat is hosted in Beaver Creek.  They also host a wide variety of events as a way to support local families, as they seek to raise their families in a Christ-centered manner.


Guests Who Have Attended A Dance

In 2017, as a way to serve our local community, we began hosting an annual Daddy Daughter Ball. The first mother and son barn dance will be hosted in 2019.


Ladies Who Have Attended A Retreat

Since 2014, Beckoned has hosted 7 retreats.  These retreats are a place for adoptive and foster moms, and those helping orphans worldwide, to gather, encourage, and strengthen one another.
