"When we came, our marriage was pretty bleak. I am hopeful now." From Michigan
"We get to see miracles"
Henry and Ann have hosted at The Ravines at least 40 times. That’s a huge time commitment. I asked “why?”
“We had rough times in our own marriage,” says Ann. “We wish we had access to this kind of resource 30 years ago.”
In addition to serving meals and keeping the coffee brewing, hosts pray and encourage. Once Henry was walking on the property and he came upon the wife (of a couple there for counseling) who was struggling and very distraught. She didn’t think she could go on. Henry (who retired as an athletic coach) encouraged her. He prayed with her and said, “You’re not going to quit,” wondering if he had spoken too strongly. It was just what she needed to move forward, face some hard challenges and continue the process of healing.
“We do not counsel,” says Henry. “But it was Friday, and Fridays are days of hard work at The Ravines.”

"Our time at The Ravines was a huge blessing. Our hosts honored our privacy and yet were ready to talk when we needed them. Our counselor was excellent at navigating our conversations and pacing our sessions based upon our needs. We will be forever thankful."
