Our Ministers

The profile of our ministers, you’ll notice, are looking ahead at the future, while also not showing their faces, in order to be discreet, protecting their loved-ones—which 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.”

Bianca T in Salvador, Brazil is our Portuguese Minister who has learned the blessings of trusting and obeying. Through humility Bianca began to experience the beauty of having a gentle and quiet spirit, and also the joy in becoming His bride when she was asked to leave her home.

~ Cierra K in Kentucky, a newly RESTORED Minister in Training, who now specializes in “letting go” while still Married. Everything changed for Cierra when she realized that all her troubles were due to her unfaithfulness in not tithing— she was allowing the enemy to steal not only from her but her family as well.

Michele in California
came to RMI when she was facing divorce, at the time, the mother of two small boys. After reading the RYM book, A Wise Woman and began helping Erin with her books, very soon her marriage was restored. Years later Michele was facing divorce again while helping to update and revise a small Facing Divorce booklet for her church, returning to Refresh and find how He planned to use it for good, Michele discovered the real reason God allowed divorce to happen again.

Gina A in Arizona, came to know her Lord even more when everything was falling apart in her life and taken away from her. Even though Gina experienced a RESTORED marriage, she never changed Who was first in her life, not until tragedy hit her life and everything, again, crumbled.

~ Pamela M in Idaho, who specializes in loss, after losing her earthly husband, and over a hundred other people from her life (including in-laws, stepchildren, grandchildren, her friends, and the death of her parents,) Pamela can attest to how God will transform us when we are completely broken and alone.

Evangelist Minister

Leslie L. in Ohio
 admits she did everything wrong, and yet He proved He was in control. He led Leslie through divorce after trying other methods as a stander, but very soon He showed her the love and mercy she’d always yearned for. Now Leslie is ready and training to help others.

Tara T in 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.

Lanie in Michigan realized that due to her not forgiving her father for not being there while she was growing up, due to her parents’ divorce, she “was now on the same destructive path. I knew I didn’t want this for my family.” That her trials were not to punish, but what was intended to harm, God intended it for her good. “The Lord taught me to really trust Him, open up and talk to Him and go only to Him for everything.”

Vickie in Wisconsin has learned to find peace amid storms, even though she says she’s made so many mistakes prior to learning the truth and she’s “taken the LONG route.” And also who will do the changing when Vicky stated: “God was the only One that changed me and still does to this day. I know that He will complete the work in me that He has started!”


~ Silvia E in Santa Catarina life shows the power of His Word and why our translators are so important. Even though Silvia began her journey reading everything in English, His word did touch her, and now she is a translator herself. As Silvia says, “It’s s wonderful to find out my joy is in the Lord! Circumstances don’t matter, as a matter of fact, it hasn’t to do if I have an earthly husband, children, home or a car.”

Sarah I in Wales is an amazing woman who is like a modern day Sarah “who obeyed Abraham calling him lord.” The Lord has helped Sarah carry her very difficult cross to prepare her to minister to other women who are called to go through extremely difficult journeys.

Joy G in Nevada,
was our very beautiful Tagalog translator, who has experienced freedom after embracing His truths. Even though Joy was deaf when she first arrived, while with us the Lord used her in amazing ways until her husband contacted her to meet him. After letting go of her Marriage Restoration and her church Joy now says “I live a fear-free, worry-free life!” even though she has no idea what her future holds. Then the impossible happened, after 25 Years, she could hear!!

Read her RESTORED Marriage Testimony—It Was Me!

Katherine K in Kentucky like many women, turned into what she was exposed to growing up— she said “I turned into a monster.” After confessing her sin of adultery to her husband, while taking His hand, and allowing herself to travel along her Restoration Journey, she began to follow HIs principles.

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."
