Here's one participant's story:
“I came to the Hope Restored Intensive desperate for direction and feeling like there was no hope for my husband and me. I was hurt and angry that my husband would devastate our marriage and I did not see a way out of the darkness. I was broken. I was very skeptical about giving the Intensive a try. I thought my wounds were too fresh. I was terrified of sharing my hurts and airing our dirty laundry in front of a group of strangers. It was completely out of our comfort zone, or so I thought.
From the very beginning our host couple was so kind—I began to cry almost immediately. The love from them was palpable, especially when I was at such a vulnerable place. The hospitality staff were so pleasant and loving as well. I could feel Christ's arms through all the people here. The group was such a treasure. The amazing thing is, I saw my husband's heart for the first time. I thought there was no hope for us, but God's plans are better than my own...We have a long road ahead, but I believe we now have the tools to make the journey.”
