"An amazing experience"
When Jim and Marcy (not their real names) came to The Ravines from the East Coast in the fall of 2015, they didn’t see much hope for their young marriage.
An affair had robbed them of the joy of welcoming a new baby.
The loss of Jim's job made The Ravines seem impossible. But they were committed to doing everything they could to save their family. So with help from church, family and some scholarship from The Ravines, they made the trip to Indiana.
Today they are enjoying a new relationship.
"We had an amazing experience at The Ravines and I credit a lot of our success as a couple to our time there," says Marcy.
"It was hard and rewarding at the same time. My husband, who had been nervous about seeing a counselor, opened up in new ways. We each gained insight on how an affair had come into a marriage which from the outside seemed so perfect.
"This is a wonderful thing you do - from the gifted counselors, to the welcoming hosts, to those who buy the groceries and those who provide scholarship funds. It was a life-changing experience for us and we cannot thank you enough."
