but first 2 Restored Marriage Testimonies!


Restoration is NOT just a Fairy Tale!

Thank you so very much for your anniversary letter!! I had not been on your site for a while, due to so many things going on in my life—and one of those being restored to my husband!! I have moved to where he has been living several months ago!! We’ve been back together and I cannot tell you how amazing everything is!!

My restoration came about when my husband asked me if I would come for a visit. He said he had been thinking of me for quite a while, which was a shock, because I went into "hiding" like you recommended and was told by everyone that he would forget about me if I didn't continue to pursue him. How wrong they were!! Disappearing from my facebook and everything else, he said helped him to make up his mind and began making plans for me to move here to live with him.

If there is typos please forgive me. I had eye surgery recently and can't see too well currently. Yet that is just one way that the Lord has been faithful in all things to me! He has shown me this many times over the past few years, His faithfulness the more I trusted Him and simply did what you ladies, who are so wise, taught me. I shudder to think if I had listened to what every one else kept telling me (of course before I distanced myself from these people too in order to find the Lord more intimately).

Just prior to my restoration I began a fellowship in my home that continues and is growing. So far we have seen more than a dozen marriages restored, all of whom we want to send in a testimony for.

My thoughts and prayers go out to those all who are still waiting and hoping for restoration. It does happen. It's not a fairy tale or wishful thinking... God wants to do the impossible, turning our husband's hearts, once we turn our hearts to Him and begin to focus on others.

God Bless,

Nine times out of ten, when women disappear from once being active in our ministry, we find months and ever years later it was due to their RESTORATION. Our current leader of the men's ministry was "missing" for years only to show up with an amazing restoration he shared with us, and ultimately ready, willing and able to serve as minister for our men.

Our ultimate goal is not to just help you restore your marriage, but to equip you to help restore and encourage OTHERS, which is why we ask on our Marriage Evaluation Questionnaire "Are you interested in possibly enrolling in our "Minister In Training Course" to learn how to help with crisis marriages?" Through this we can pretty well determine if your marriage will be restored. How?

It was selfishness and thinking only of one's "self" that allowed your husband to do what he did by leaving or cheating on you. The only way to break the cycle is to begin to think of OTHERS, which is the way Jesus lived and the legacy He left for us to follow.

"Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you. Treat others the same way you want them to treat you”—Luke 6:31

Think about this, where would YOU be if Erin Thiele had not turned around to help others? Where would you be if our Ministers and Ministers in Training were not willing to think about you? And as you will learn, this is one of the key components to restoration—helping and ministering to OTHERS.

OW Going Back to Her Husband!!

As I was writing an email to my ePartner, I got a phone call from my husband (at 1:00 am) to ask me if I wanted him to come home! We have been separated for 2 3/4 years after he threw me out of our home. We talked for an hour which was the first shock, since for more than a year we had only spoken for less than five minutes a month, only speaking in regard to our children's visits.

It wasn't until the day we met to work out me coming home, that I found out that the OW had left him.  He said he thinks she has gone back to her husband! Wow, amazing because that is just how my fellowship and ePartner suggested we begin to pray. God just loves to show us how He answers our prayers when we pray according to how He leads us to pray (something I learned from your ministry)!

We began praying in this way even though we didn't know that she even had a husband!

Not only did my husband confirm this fact, but he also said that things had been getting horribly bitter with her –- again, things you had told us and also the way our group had been praying according to His promise that "in the end" that she would become as bitter as wormwood! What an awesome and mighty God we serve!

Though my children are still hurt, God is using this as a way of getting my husband's attention. I KNOW that He will turn the hearts of my children back to their father, but for now it is motivating him to become the right kind of husband to me and become a spiritual leader for our family!!

Praise you God, Thank you for your faithfulness and ministry! I have no idea where I would be if I hadn't found you in my desperation.

Be Encouraged eVideos

Our Be Encouraged eVideos are sold in our Encouraging Bookstore for $30. These eVideos are another GIFT to you from our PARTNERS.

Our PARTNERS personally know HOW IMPORTANT these have been to them and so many other women who eventually sent in their Restored Marriage Testimonies!!

And to get motivated and understand just how powerful these eVideos are, click here and scroll down to read the amazing Reviews!

These videos are vital to your Restoration Journey to give you the Courage you need. The word "Encouraged" actually means "to give Courage."

However, some women write to use saying they are unable to watch the videos. They may have a slow Internet, they may not be allowed access at their work or not be able to watch them from their phone where they access their emails, our site and/or our lessons.

If you are unable to watch the videos for any reason, it means you are going to witness first hand the principle found in Philippians 4:19 that says, "And my Godwill supply ALL your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus." GOD wants to fulfill this and every need you have! Why hasn't He fulfilled that promise before?

Because it also says in Luke 11:9-10 “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and he who seeks, finds; and to him who knocks, it will be opened."

So if you try to watch the videos and it doesn't work for you, then you need to STOP and ask GOD to show you WHERE and HOW He WANTS you to watch them. Don't try to figure it out, but do exactly what the verses, which are promises and principles to live by, say.

Proverbs 3:5 says, "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do NOT lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

Though we want you to be able to watch and "Be Encouraged" by these videos that have helped restore so many marriages, but even more importantly is to give you the KEYS to be able to UNLOCK each and every problem that comes your way—from SIMPLE question or concern— to a CRISIS. Learn the key principles now by reading Proverbs 3:5 above over and over again, and also writing this verse (and other verses) onto 3x5 index cards or save them on your phone. Just be sure to READ them at least once every day.

Then LIVE by them. Begin with this first assignment of finding out how He will lead you to be able to WATCH the videos!

If you are able to simply watch the videos, please don't miss this all important KEY and use the same principle to unlock another dilemma you face today or this week. Then begin using it each and every time you need help to do or find something.

Over the years of teaching this principle to our clients who have had issues with watching videos, we have found the Lord led them to go to their local libraries,  finding a friend or family member or coworker who already knew about about their marriage situation who let them use their computer or WiFi at their house while they were taking our course. Some found a friend or family member or coworker who didn't know about their situation and they used another principle, and just mentioned  “a course” they were taking online and were able to remain discreet.

Another KEY principle is found in Proverbs 11:22 "As a ring of gold in a swine’s snout so is a beautiful woman who lacks discretion." So don't go around telling everyone about your situation in order to watch the videos that will ultimately make your Restoration Journey much more difficult and may lead to you giving up altogether once others oppose you and confuse you with their opinion.

These are private videos.
