Our Encouraging Woman logo (right) represents the principle from Exodus 17:12 andEcclesiastes 4:9-12 to help lift each other up, in order to hold up each others hands in praise. 

By being discreet, protecting their loved-ones—it allows our ministers to be completely transparent when sharing the details of their lives to minister more effectively.

Titus 2:4-5 “That they [older women] may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

Proverbs 11:22—

“As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion.”

Proverbs 31:10, 25—

“An excellent woman, who can find? For her worth is far above jewels” “Strength and dignity are her clothing and she smiles at the future.”

~ Tara T from Missouri, has never been married and chosen to keep herself morally pure by not dating until the Lord reveals His choice for a husband. In the meantime Tara is reading and rereading A Wise Woman Single and experiencing the Lord as her Betrothed. Tara is also traveling to meet with our leaders and partners in different parts of the world. #Tara

Sara, who was living in Turkey when she began her Restoration Journey, began by helping to translate our resources into Turkish—even though her first language is Portuguese! Though this is extraordinary, her journey and the changes He has made in her is even more so. Just looking at her face, which is clearly glowing, speaks volumes and confirms one of our most favorite verses “They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces will never be ashamed.” Psalm 34:5

Atarah in South Africa is one of our Ministers in Africa who is filling in the gap between “standers” and truly experiencing a RESTORED marriage and is also heading up our RJ "Restoration Journey" ministry. Embracing her HH, Atarah remarried her husband, and then took an extended Sabbatical but since her return to help Yvonne and encourage us all, she has been promoted due to her ongoing love for her HH! #Atarah

~ Beverly U. in Iowa found peace and her burdens lifted once she found RMIEW who introduced her to her Heavenly Husband. Beverly says, “I didn't even realize I HAD a Heavenly Husband. I knew the concept of being the Bride of Christ, but that seemed more like the Church as a group and more for the End Times than for my daily life. Now I know my Heavenly Husband is WITH ME. I do not have to conjure Him up, by praying correctly or behaving a certain way. The only thing I need to do is TURN TO HIM. He is already with me! He WANTS me to talk with Him constantly. #Beverly

Though diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and avascular necrosis (deterioration of bones that won’t regenerate) medically speaking Ziva has said, " but spiritually speaking, to my love Jesus this disease is easy to heal! He gave me this promise: Psalm 126:5 'Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy' and also Psalm 37:4-5 'Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this' I believed Him and I still do, even in the midst of adversity." #Ziva

in Turkey and who was raised Muslim before finding the Lord as her Savior. The oldest of 6 children, Nehir was raised in a poor Islamic family.

About Our Organization
Restore Ministries International

Since 1991 RMI has been encouraging  women in crisis marriages—giving them hope for seemingly impossible and hopeless marriages— that changed every area of their lives! 

It all began when RMI’s founder, Erin Thiele, read
and embraced this very simple but powerful verse: 

Luke 1:37— "for nothing will be impossible with God."
