“PTL! I had surgery on my foot in April. Although my husband moved out a few weeks before that, he stayed with me at the hospital, stopped by our family home every day to cook meals for me, and also took our two young children with him, so that I could rest and recover. He attended Easter services with us, and our pastor kept speaking on marriage restoration and fleeing from adultery! God is awesome because my daughter and I have been praying for him to attend church.”  (Arizona)  (posted 5/22/2013)
"After years of my being divorced and standing, our pastor taught on asking for forgiveness to all whom we had wronged, hence I decided to call my husband. On the same day my co-worker witnessed on how she had been praying for her parent's marriage restoration for years and at last God has answered her prayers. It really encouraged me." (Tanzania) (posted 7/4/2008)
"My wife and I were re-married in August and we are on our way to a restored marriage. Thanks for all of your help and encouragement. There have been a few bumps but I'm so positive we will make it this time. I continue to read Charlyne Cares every day. Nothing is impossible!" (Texas) (posted 1/10/2011)
“‘Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate.  For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.”  Luke 15:23-24  (posted 8/24/2012)
“These past weeks the Holy Spirit has impressed upon me to give thanks and praise to the LORD. I have been reading a book on prayer and praise and am convinced that after so many years of standing for my marriage, I am at the point where I should now lay more emphasis on praise and thanksgiving. I am so thankful that this past Sunday the Senior Pastor at my church preached a message on the Grounds of Divorce. I have been yearning for such a sermon for many years. The sermon was quite refreshing and affirming for me and the women who are in my Bible class.”  (Canada)  (posted 3/25/2013)
"My daughter left home to drop out of school and live with her boyfriend. My husband was supportive of me through this. I have kept him informed and followed his direction in how to handle everything. God has repeatedly told me to have unconditional love for my husband and daughter. Although I cannot support my daughter's decisions, I have been able to pray for her and keep the door open for her to return home just like God taught me to do for her father. I believe my Lord will be faithful to bring my daughter and husband home to Him and us in His perfect time." (California) (posted 2/13/2009)
"God has truly blessed me and my family! He has made a way out of no way! God blessed me to be able to pay bills that haven't been paid. I was called back to work after a year of being unemployed to the department that let me go; and I am still believing for a complete restoration of my 'dead' marriage." After many false starts, my prodigal is more consistent in calling and visiting on a weekly basis. He now says how he wants to come home. We must continue to pray! Never stop praying! God is faithful to complete what He has begun!"  (Connecticut)  (posted 6/24/2011)
“Today I celebrate God’s greatness. My husband has returned. It looked dead, even to the point of him entering into a marriage in another religion. Today God has shown me that He is the resurrection power, He alone is able. It’s a very long story, with much pain and heartache. It’s a story that took me down to the valley. But Jesus is the God of the mountain tops. Standers, pray without ceasing, believe without doubting, and above all pray for the salvation of your spouse. My husband had a Damascus Road experience and God did the rest. I pray for every one of you, let hope rise! Jesus is alive and seated at the right hand of the Father. He’s interceding for us, that we may always overcome.”  (South Africa) (posted 8/31/2014)
“I have been waiting to be able to write this testimony and my suddenly has finally come. My prodigal called five days before Christmas to say he wants to come home after having no communication for months and his saying he was starting his life over with the OW. Standers, please don’t give up. So many times I wanted to and even started my legal separation to get a divorce, but all I could hear in my spirit was to be still and know that I am God. Being the fixer that I am, I tried all kinds of manipulations to get him to come home and it only drove him further away. I had no other choice but to trust God completely. I started praying for others as well as myself and fasting on a regular basis, found RMM and fed my spirit with Charlyne’s daily devotions as well as the 24 hour radio program. I would go to sleep listening to the ‘How To Love Your Spouse Unconditionally’ CD playing over and over. I am in awe of God’s goodness and love.”  (Virginia) (posted 12/29/2014)
“Last Valentine's Day my husband and I split up. He was away from home for about three months but it seemed like three years. During this time another friend referred me to your ministry. It taught me how to pray and trust in God and my marriage. When I felt like I was out of control from the things going on, I would come in the morning to work to find my scriptures and words of hope...they were there for me. I prayed for him continually, read Psalms at night to calm me and help me get rest. Last April my husband came home. We have been together ever since. Yesterday was the first time we returned home to our church and we gave our testimonies. God gets all the glory. Don't give up, pray, pray, pray and be faithful and God will see you through this.”  (Indiana) (posted 2/26/2014)
“Thank you for the courtroom prayers. I was given God’s protection and strength once more. It was very difficult, but God took care of everything, kept me peaceful and told me to leave it to Him. It felt weird to let it all go and trust, but I have learned through baby steps over the years that our God is trustworthy and protects us from all dangers. He revealed to me ahead of time information that came out at the hearing that would have been hard for me to hear without warning. Thanks be to God!”  (California) (posted 4/14/2015)
"I have been praying for God to change my husband’s heart, but He changed mine. I was so blinded by satan that I couldn’t see my own faults. The day God changes all that in me I met my husband to switch the kids in a fast food parking lot and he asked if we could all go in and eat. We sat for 20 minutes with the kids like the family we once were and will be again. God showed me I am on the right track and He even gave me the biggest rainbow I have ever seen on the drive to prove it. I am now praying that God changes my heart so I am ready when my husband comes home." (Washington) (posted 2/19/2010)
"Last Monday the divorce dismissal was signed. My husband, though still out of our home, spent most of the weekend with us. He came to church with us on Sunday and the church body welcomed him back. Next week will be three years that my husband has been gone, but I never gave up the hope of Jeremiah 32:27 for our marriage; 'Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; Is there anything too hard for Me?' God continues to work His miracles." (California)  (posted 10/31/2008)
“On Christmas Day we usually go to my husband's family. This year my husband wanted to take the other woman. I prayed to God that He would prevent it, but He allowed it. Because I lost my daughter a month ago, I felt too weak for this meeting and canceled it. In the evening my husband called and said that he not only missed my daughter on that special day, but also me. Tomorrow he wanted to go with the other woman on vacation. I prayed to God that He would prevent it and speak to my spouse. Later my husband called and told me that he has canceled the trip because he no longer knows where he belongs. My favorite verses are Isaiah 55:8-11. I am fulfilled with God's love.”  (Germany) (posted 1/6/2014)
“I have been so blessed. My husband had moved back home, but in less than two weeks was seeing the other woman again. Many were the times I was tempted to stand up for myself, but God always reminded me that He was my defender. Last night my husband told me that she was out of the picture for good! He will be attending church with us on Christmas Eve for the first time in over a year. God is so faithful.” (Ohio) (posted 1/28/2005)
“I have been praying earnestly for months that God would open the door for a job for me in my husband's town. Yesterday I was unexpectedly interviewed by phone by the supervisor of the job I've been claiming. He was going to recommend to my superiors that he wanted me for the job! I am awaiting my superiors' decision. On the way home I saw three trucks in succession - an Omega truck (God declares the end from the beginning, Is. 46:10), a Victory Movers truck, and a Covenant Transport truck! I just laughed and thanked God for declaring my victory that has been decided in heaven before it is revealed on the earth! I know that marriage restoration is next!”  (Georgia)  (posted 4/23/2012)
“I have been fasting and praying for my spouse and our marriage. We have been separated for some months. He called and said that he filed separation papers. However, when getting off the phone, he told me he loved me. Then he moved money into my account to help me buy food and said he would pay for my attorney. He seemed conflicted, almost like he still cared. The Holy Spirit is speaking to him and God is moving in his life! I believe my suddenly is coming soon! Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!”  (Virginia)  (posted 6/25/2013)
"Today was our first divorce court date. Praise God it was postponed for another day. My spouse doesn't believe God can heal our marriage but I do. We serve a mighty God that has everything under control." (Georgia) (posted 1/30/2011)
“I am so thankful for RMM and for the Lord Jesus having me stand in the gap for my marriage. I spoke to my husband today. He is engaged and trying to get married. When I asked if they set a date, he stated things are in the way right now. Praise the Lord! I am standing in the gap, that my husband will move back home and we will remarry. The Lord has me loving my husband in a way I could not before because God has shown me how to love him.”  (Minnesota)   (posted 8/23/2011)
“Once again God has performed a miracle. This past Mother's Day weekend, my prodigal came for a visit. He wanted me to make his favorite meal when he came. The miracle is our oldest daughter came too and she and her father talked for the first time in some years. It was truly a God thing. We ate as a family and he even called our oldest by her nickname, which is huge, considering how long it has been. All praises to my Heavenly Father!”  (Ohio)  (posted 5/26/2012)
“I wanted to share with you and other standers, that after being separated for a couple of years and served with divorce papers back in November, I submitted our names to the RMM Court Page seeking prayer for intervention. PTL we did not go to court as scheduled. We are still separated and communication is very limited but I am trusting in our Lord for a restored marriage. I just wanted to encourage other standers with very little faith, as I have had. Thank you RMM and prayer warriors for your faithfulness and continued prayers for restoring what matters to God, and that is family.” (Virginia) (posted 3/3/2014)
“Praise the Lord for He is a great and awesome God! This is a testimony about my young daughter. She has suffered several traumas throughout her life, and has been the most impacted by our marriage problems. Her behavior problems have caused serious consequences in her life already and many people have predicted negative things for her future. BUT GOD! He can set the captives free! He has been teaching her how to pray to Him, how to praise Him, and last week she made a commitment to repent of her sins and follow Jesus, and asked to be baptized. God had given me Joel 2:25-26 to pray into her life and He is faithful to fulfill His promises! And what a witness to my husband! Thank You Jesus, in Your presence broken lives ARE made new!”  (Canada) (posted 7/31/2014)
“I was feeling half-hearted in my stand when I came across the article Head Standing or Heart Standing? This article was clearly written for me. I praise the Lord that I read it. I prayed and after a two-week silence my husband called out of the blue. I promise from this day forward to stand with my whole heart. God heard and answered my prayer to hear from my husband and I know He is working mightily behind the scenes for my marriage. I know God is working all things - good and bad - for my good and my marriage’s good. Standers keep on standing.”  (California)  (posted 2/5/2013)

“Praise the Lord! My beloved husband came by our home to say that he wanted our marriage to work! Isn't the Lord faithful? Three years ago, the Lord gave me Isaiah 58 to read and led me to this website. To all my fellow standers, continue to love our Lord and walk closely with Him. He loves you, your spouse, and your children. He will get complete glory out of your story! Don't give up on God because He won't give up on you...He is able! Forever standing for marriage and families."  (Georgia)

“Our Lord is listening. My wife and I have been separated for over a year. One of the main impediments to our continued separation has been her job and those she works with. I have been praying that she would be given a job to help our family situation. Today she excitedly told me that she got a new job, with a new employer, with better hours and closer to our home. Our Lord truly hears our prayers and answers them! God is awesome!”  (Ohio)  (posted 11/27/2011)
"Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress. He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed. They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven. Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men." Psalm 107:28-31 (posted 5/15/2009)
Hiding God's Word in my heart helps me to speak God's Word over my circumstances with the authority of Jesus! God's Word does not return void! Memorizing His Word means I can speak to my mountains instantly!! Help me Holy Spirit to memorize your Word!!! God Bless you all!!!  (California)
(posted 1/21/2013)
“I praise the Lord for all of you. I just want to let you know that all of your testimonies touch me greatly. Some make me smile and some cause me to cry. But they always help to build my faith and hope in Jesus. I pray for you all every day. I thank with all of my heart.”  (Michigan) (posted 12/5/2014)
"My final court hearing was this week. I prayed for it to be cancelled, but it didn't happen. My husband came unprepared with financial information. It is now delayed 30 days. Praise the Lord. My husband and I ran into each other outside the courthouse and talked. He is coming to our house in a few weeks to clear things out. This will be the first time he will be in our home in years. My husband may feel he is coming to get his things, but I know that the Lord is in the middle of all this and will change my husband's heart while at home." (Pennsylvania) (posted 7/30/2010)
“Today my children expressed to me how they hope that my husband and I ‘get back together.’ I prayed that God would place on their hearts hope and the desire that we would reconcile and He did! I also prayed for just one more sign of encouragement in my stand and lo and behold He revealed a Covenant Transport truck to me. I know He can and will restore my marriage. I had given up several times in my stand but having renewed my relationship with Jesus, He has given me the strength and courage to fight. Please fellow standers, don't give in to the enemy and give up your stand. God wants to restore your marriage as He does mine, and He will!”  (California)  (posted 12/20/2011)
"My husband put his wedding ring back on. I praise God that He is softening my husband’s heart. He runs to me in times of trouble. I have tried to be there for him, just like Jesus is for us." (Arizona) (posted 3/6/2009)
“There has been absolutely no communication with my husband for a long time and a few months ago he moved out. Despite no contact, he has paid the house rent for the last two months, which is nothing short of a miracle. It’s been quite a while that I have been out of job! God is speaking and my beloved, unbelieving husband is listening! Praise Jesus, my Adonai! This is the beginning of another month and I’m expecting a great move of God. I thank God that this time apart is used to draw me closer to my Creator.”  (India) (posted 9/13/2011)
“Praise be to God, my husband called, confessed, and wanted to come home. We spent the weekend together. He showed up at church, sat with us, and rededicated his life to the Lord. The service was about marriage and the Lord testing our faith when things get hard. God is so good and faithful.” (Texas) (posted 5/27/2005)

"Because he love me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him." Psalm 91:14-15

“I just wanted to share my cousin's testimony to encourage others for Mother's Day. She left her husband with her sons when the boys were three and five (she was the prodigal) for another man. She had TWO non-covenant marriages and then went back home when the boys were 21 and 24. Her visits were few and far between during the non-covenant times, but her husband NEVER dated during that time or took off his ring. In fact, he is my cousin...she married into the family. Because he never talked bad about her, it was easy to accept her back into the family because we didn’t know the details of anything. They have been remarried for three years now. She enjoys our family and we love her. She is truly family. I was the prodigal and divorced many months ago. It is my prayer of supplication that I will repeat my cousin's story. Be blessed.”  (Maryland) (posted 5/12/2012)
“I am so grateful for this ministry. I have found so much comfort here during this difficult time. I've learned and grown so much and feel that I am a better person now. This ministry came at a time when everyone was telling me to give up. I had never heard the word 'stand' before coming to Rejoice Ministries. Thank you, Charlyne for being so transparent and sharing your personal stories. It has blessed me. I can’t wait to share my personal testimony of my prodigal returning home.”  (California)  (posted 1/18/2012)
“I got myself in over my head with a construction project at home. It looked easy at first but it soon turned out to be a very difficult task. I called my husband - who works in the construction industry - for advice. Little did I know that he had already planned to come help me. He knew from the start what I didn't know - how difficult it was going to be. He didn't tell me before because he didn't want to discourage me. Instead, he cleared up two days of his work schedule to give me a hand. We ended up working together with our son. I took pictures and my husband gave me some of his nicest smiles in years. Now I have a lovely veranda and we have great memories of something we did together. This is happening in spite of a three-year separation and tough times of hostility and threats of divorce. God is good! When I look at the veranda I can't help but think that this is a labor of love - all for me!”  (Canada)  (posted 12/7/2012)

"My husband has been home for a few months. God has blessed my family and bringing my husband and I into unity. We have been working on our marriage. He was home for Christmas. I am thankful to God for not letting me give up on my marriage." (Oklahoma)

(posted 1/16/2009)
"I was discouraged because my husband has not made any starts to coming back home months after our divorce and recently said we're not getting back together ever. So I asked God for a rainbow inside our house if my husband and I would remarry. Two days later, our youngest son said, 'Look, mommy! There's a rainbow on the carpet!' The afternoon sun was bouncing light off my neighbor’s car creating a rainbow on our carpet and it was beautiful. If my son wasn't there I would have missed it." (Illinois) (posted 1/10/2011)
“Last night we were having a storm so I'd kept the TV on the Weather Channel while I was cleaning house. In my mind I heard ‘go turn the Channel to Channel 3,’ the local Christian Channel. There was a pastor speaking a message of encouragement to ‘the woman who has been praying for years that her husband would come home. Continue in your prayers because God is sending him home.’" (Georgia) (posted 3/11/2012)
Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.  Psalm 115:1  (posted 8/27/2011)
"God's timing is perfect! I received in the mail a card and a large sum of money to encourage me on the same day my husband was adamant about divorce. Today, I went to do my nightly prayers when the Bible page I first opened had a devotional that ended with "Yes-the time is not long now. Dare to begin to be happy. If you will go forward in the way before you, you will soon receive the promise, and I will give you your heart's desire." The Lord has been telling me the fight for my marriage is short and intense, that the bondage of satan in my husband is breaking and I am closer than I think!" (Pennsylvania) (posted 2/18/2011)

"I want to thank the Lord for bringing my husband home one year ago. In the past year, I have seen the hate walls come down, and his softer, gentle side is being returned. What a wonderful God we serve." (Alabama)

(posted 10/11/2007)
“I just wanted to give all praise to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ that my marriage is still on the path of restoration. My husband lives at home and says he no longer loves me or is in love with me but is staying out of obedience and waiting for God to tell him His will and way or what to do. I have prayed so fervently and faithfully to the Lord to change his heart and I know it's by His grace that my husband is still living under the same roof as me and our child. We had Bible study with our pastor and his wife and my husband prayed that God would change his heart and open it so that he can love me. We also stayed up until very early in the morning, praying for each other and confessing our sins. This morning he said he loved me! NEVER GIVE UP!”  (Texas) (posted 10/28/2013)
“When my husband filed for divorce, God told me He would restore our marriage. I didn't know God and I didn't know what it meant to ‘restore a marriage.’ I found this ministry. A few months later my husband remarried, but I remained standing, despite the fact that everybody thought I was crazy. God told me to pray the enemy out of my promised land and I did. That marriage ended months later. One year into the stand God told me it's going to take two years for Him to restore us. True to His Word, my husband and I are now spending time together. Now I know why other standers say, all the tears and pain are worth it. My husband is a new man. God has shown me His power a lot throughout my stand but I’m blown away by what He's done with my husband. I'll give all praise and honor to Him forever!  (Arizona) (posted 10/7/2013)

"My husband called early Sunday morning to wish me a Happy Mother's Day. He also said he appreciated me and all I have done for our children. He gave our children money to take me out for dinner. Praise God for His encouragement and faithfulness." (Canada)

“After many, many years of separation, my wife has asked our daughter to ask me if she could stay in my place as she has had an argument with her partner."  (United Kingdom)  (posted 5/6/2013)
“My prodigal and I attended church together on Sunday. I had taken my coat off and placed it, my purse, and Bible between us. He asked me to move my things on the other side of me so we could sit closer together. He held my hand during service. When the bishop asked first time visitors to stand, my husband stood and was welcomed with hugs by members of the congregation. When church was over, I asked my husband if he was he going to the meet the bishop. He said, ‘Next Sunday.’ I asked, ‘Are you coming back?’ He said, ‘Of course I’m coming back to church with my wife.’ Hallelujah! Proverbs 3:5 (KJV)Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Standing on God’s promises.”  (Maryland) (posted 12/11/2014)
“Wow, I’m in awe of what God is doing. The Lord is restoring my marriage with my covenant wife right before my very eyes. The stand for my marriage was not easy. I came really close to giving up a lot of times. But God is faithful and His promises are true. It’s been a little over a year and my lovely wife said to me that she loves me and that we should take baby steps toward a new beginning. PTL! I was at the end of myself but that’s when God started showing me who He is. At one point I started to think that this day would never come, but God said, ‘Keep your eyes on Me not on your circumstances.’”  (Florida) (posted 11/17/2014)

"After a year my husband came home. At the beginning of my stand God spoke to me and said 'You will never be divorced.' He is true to His Word." (Ohio)
