Review for The Jericho House, Cleveland, GA, USA
As the wife of one of the success stories from The Jericho House, I can't say enough positive things about this organization. I admit, I thought Larry was insane after our first counseling sessions. Telling me I couldn't call my husband, or come see him, I thought was horrible. What I LEARNED was my husband and I were horrible to each other. He was an addict looking for an excuse to use, I was an enabler who needed someone who needed me to take care of him. Our marriage was in shambles when my husband went to the Jericho House, we were just to co-dependent to see the mess. After several months, and several mistakes and missteps on both our parts, Larry suggested a ladies program in Vero Beach, Florida for me. I fought the idea for awhile, but gave in eventually. When I arrived in Florida, I was still clueless as to how destructive we were to each other. After 9 months of counseling, classes, and tons of inner healing, I had changed and I came home to a different husband. We spent weeks getting to know each other, and working on our marriage--especially our communication. It has not been a bed of roses, it has been a lot of hard work, and lots of forgiveness on both parts, but our marriage today is healthy, happy, and blossoming. I look forward to seeing my husband each night when he comes home, we enjoy our time together, and time that was spent fighting, is spent praying and affirming each other. This does not mean we never fight, all couples do, but we use skills taught to us through the Jericho House and inner healing to resolve the situation. We now appreciate our differences and embrace our similarities. Thank you Larry for not giving up on us, when everybody else (including ourselves) had. Your patience and tough love helped us grow up and move forward into the life Christ intends for us!!
