Ezzos at Home
This page is not associated with the Ezzos' public teaching ministry, but a small window into their personal world. Living in the delightful Southern coastal community of Mount Pleasant, Gary and Anne Marie take up residence and enjoy a wide variety of pleasantries, from superb sport fishing, delicious blue crab, a plentiful supply of shrimp, and the historical City of Charleston.
Gary and Anne Marie make their home in the delightful coastal community of Mount Pleasant. This little township is just across the harbor from the beautiful and historic City of Charleston, South Carolina, a place filled with history and hospitality. Its glorious past, from its pre-Colonial days through the American Revolution, the Civil War and into the present defines the city’s character. The beautiful historical district, cobblestone streets, waterfront parks and theaters add to the city’s intrigue. It was out of this rich history that the Ezzos’ wrote their short parenting chronicles, Let’s Ask Auntie Anne, which depicts the daily lives of people living on and near the Carolina saltwater marsh and low country.
The twenty minute trip from downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant is equally rich in folklore and American history. Originally part of Christ Church Parish established in 1680, Mount Pleasant woods and fertile land gave way to boroughs and plantations, as well as coastal gunneries and rows of shrimp boats dotting the horizon, coming and going from historical Shem Creek. In the 'Old Village' large sprawling oaks draped with Spanish moss enhance the feeling that you live in a forgotten time where flower-accented porches and white rocking chairs beckoned visitors to come, sit and rest.
Gary's primary pastime activities include gardening, fishing, and shrimping. Jogging and/or paddle boarding are the his two early morning activities. Anne Marie, is a avid reader, loves playing tour guide with visiting guest, enjoys her morning walks, love to bake, and on occasion, will join Gary and the neighbors on their early morning paddle board excursions. The Ezzos have nine grandchildren and continue to enjoy full-time ministry.
