“I would just like to thank you for your ministry. It was one year ago today my marriage problems began. Two days after that I found your web site in an online search for help. Although I am grounded in my church, had it not been for your ministry, I do not think I would be standing on my two feet today. One year later I am still willing to accept my husband back when he returns. Thank you for your direction in praying. I have learned a lot this year. I read your devotionals daily and listen to your Stop Divorce Radioall day at work and leave it on while I sleep. The 24-hour support helps tremendously. God Bless your ministry. Merry Christmas.”  (California)  (posted 12/26/2011)
“After letting circumstances bring me down today, I asked God to speak to me during my Bible study to let me know that He is at work on the other side of the mountain and that He is going to restore my marriage. I read Psalm 62 and it said to pour out you heart to God for He is our refuge. I stopped and broke down crying, asking God to restore my marriage. At that moment, the songI Will Restorecame on the radio! I praise God for His reassurance and I thank RMM for teaching me how to listen when God speaks to me!”  (Arkansas) (posted 8/26/2013)
"I was looking for encouragement from the Lord that He was working on our marriage restoration. I said a silent prayer that I did not have to see my prodigal wife, that only if she would call. A few hours after my prayer, I received a phone call from my wife." (Minnesota) (posted 1/16/2009)
“Praise to our Lord Jesus Christ. Yesterday after a few months of separation my husband allowed me to hold his hands in prayer before a conversation that he wanted to have with me. I praise God that this is just the beginning stage of God softening my husband’s heart. He continues to ask for a divorce but I believe that God is working out our healing and restoration in Jesus’ Name.” (Indiana)  (posted 11/19/2012)
“After 20 months of standing my husband has come home. We are back at church and I am still standing for us. I am trusting God to help my husband to change and have a relationship with us Lord. His hard heart has been replaced with flesh. I pray that I have the patience for him to change that the Lord had with me. It was the changes in me he saw and the kindness I showed him that helped to bring him home. Thank you for teaching me to stand and trust in my Lord and Savior.” (Canada)

“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)
“‘For nothing is impossible with God.’ Luke 1:37 Our almighty God brought my husband home. Three weeks prior to this joyful event, God talked to me through the scripture in 1 Chronicles 17:25-27. We serve a faithful God. He is true to all His promises. Our family is a living testimony of God’s mighty power. You will give us one heart and one way so that we may fear you forever, for the good of us and our children after us. (Jeremiah 32:39) Praise the Lord! My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion. Psalm 71:24 My fellow standers…never, ever give up! Our God will unfold before your eyes His mighty plans for your marriage and family.” (California) (posted 10/13/2014)
"After no contact for about a month, my husband emailed me saying he was thinking about me and wanted to see how I was. Praise God that He does speak and is softening my husband's heart." (California) (posted 4/3/2009)
“I am grateful that the Lord separated me from my husband. I had made my marriage and my husband my god. I thank the Lord for reconciling me to His throne. My relationship with my husband, though still separated, has never been better. I believe more and more now that God is the author and finisher of all in my life. I encourage standers to ask what it is they too have to take from this experience. God is moving us to deeper places, and it is in these valleys that we grow. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33 (KJV) Never has this passage meant more in my life and circumstances. My husband and I still have a great relationship and it's only growing more as he, too, sees the changes in my countenance. I was fearful and unsure, but I know the Lord is my shield, my strength, my portion, my deliverer, my shelter, my strong tower, my very present help in times of need.”  (South Africa) (posted 9/16/2013)
“After reading today's Charlyne Cares, God is prompting me to write. Proverbs 19:21 is one of the scriptures that I pray every morning and every night and sometimes in between too. It certainly applies to our marriage situation. God is in control and His plans for our marriage will succeed. Standers, when you are weary and feel like giving up please remember that nothing is impossible for God. It doesn't matter what your spouse’s plans are if they do not include God now because He is able to change your spouse’s heart and mind. My spouse thought our marriage was hopeless but now even he is seeing we have hope in God. God is perfecting both of us so our marriage is on the solid rock of Jesus. Do not give up, the battle will be worth it. Jesus is our prize.”  (Pennsylvania)  (posted 7/9/2013)
“God blocked my husband and attorney’s attempt to enter judgment for divorce without my signature. Have to return to court in a few weeks. More negotiation time!”  (California)  (posted 5/16/2013)
God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?”  Numbers 23:19  (posted 12/3/2011)
“I was just in the hospital for several days and was watching TV as I waited in between procedures. One of ‘our’ favorite movies was on and I watched it nostalgically, thinking of my prodigal. Well just as I got ready to text him to mention that the movie was on, he called me. He knew I was going into the hospital, but this was the first time we'd talked while I was there. He was worried about me and said that he didn't want to lose me forever and that he would always love me. Then when we got ready to hang up he said, ‘I love you.’ I know in his mind it probably meant as a friend, but to me it meant more proof that God is really working on his heart, and that made me really happy.”  (Delaware)   (posted 5/18/2014)
PTL! God has given me signs of my husband and I reconciling. Now I'm praising Him and awaiting the day of my husband's return.” (Virginia) (posted 11/5/2011)

"The arms of your ministry are reaching around the world. A missionary friend in China told me today that she had a lady making a decision to divorce and changed her mind after hearing about my stand for my marriage. I am thanking God for the encouragement this gave me as today was a rough day. What a great reminder to never give up and trust God for the timing." (New Zealand) (posted 1/22/2010)
“PTL! My husband used a vacation day from work to spend time with me. As we sat down to eat, I asked him to say the blessing and he did! I said amen and quietly rejoiced in my heart. I am humbled by the changes the Lord has made in both of us. Satan has been attacking me relentlessly lately---but GOD!!”  (Nevada)   (posted 8/23/2011)

“My husband, daughter and I have spent the holidays together. Now we are looking for a house to live in together. I pray every day for my husband to receive Christ in his heart. I feel he has a very big call to youth and families. I remain faithful, standing in the gap to see my marriage fully restored emotionally, physically and spiritually. I give glory to God, His son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit to continue transforming lives around the world.”  (Ecuador)

“I am sitting across from my husband this morning over breakfast, content and grateful. I was the prodigal first. I was demeaning and controlling toward my spouse. Eventually, God showed me my sins, and I repented to Him and my husband. However, it appeared to be too late. But God! After a few years (and several false starts) my in-home prodigal has returned to me better than ever. He is helpful, loving, and kind and tells me all the time that he loves me. At the beginning of my stand, I would sneak around and spy on him and the OW, and I would try to manipulate him to come home, but it only drove him further away. Then I started praying for my spouse daily and letting God work on the other side of the mountain…and my beloved started coming home. It took a few years but it was worth it. Don’t give up! Your suddenly is coming!”  (South Dakota)  Thank You Lord for all these testimonies and sharing their stories so others can be encouraged! Thank you for being honest on how you failed your husband, but God restored it after you surrendered your life to the Lord and started praying for your husband! – Charlyne (posted 5/8/2015)
“I've been standing for many years, with no information from my husband, and it has been a COMPLETE walk of faith. I recently got a new general devotional and when I ‘just flipped it open’ for the first time, it was on a devotional all about a marriage restoration!! PRAISE GOD!"  (Georgia)  (posted 2/16/2012)
“I found out my spouse married the OW a few months after our divorce was final. I was distraught and felt so lost but I've come to realize that I wouldn't have handled it well had I known earlier. Today I am closer to the Lord and He revealed to me that I was called to stand exactly when he got married. My circumstances haven't changed since, I just didn't know it. I stand on Luke 16:18 and know that I am his wife. Saturday was our anniversary and also our son's graduation dinner. Our families were together again celebrating. After the dinner he helped me load my car and I reminded him it was our anniversary. He kissed and hugged me and said I love you. Standers, don't ever give up, God will restore.”  (Texas)  (posted 7/4/2013)
“Four years ago I witnessed to a colleague who is a Muslim and was believing God that he will accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior, and God has finally done it this week! I have also been cured of excessive bleeding. I cannot thank God enough for this miracle. There is NOTHING our God cannot do. Hallelujah!” (Ghana) (posted 11/17/2014)

"On Mother's Day our church is having parent dedication. I will be dedicating myself to raise our young son in God’s ways. My husband stated he would like to participate in the event. I know what he will hear and experience in that brief time will soften his heart and water the seed of obedience in his spirit." (Texas)

"I was at my husband's house and the nanny shared with me that she and her husband are in a restored marriage and are praying for our marriage and my husband's salvation. God has planted a prayer warrior in my husband's house. Praise God." (State Removed) (posted 1/29/2010)

"I give my God the glory for sending my husband back home. He is coming home tomorrow. Thanks for this ministry for preparing me for this miracle as I waited in anticipation for my husband to come home. I will continue to stand on God’s promises and put Him first in my life. He has done a work in me to humble me and I thank Him." (Canada)

“My now ex-husband left many years ago and is still married to the other woman. For those in my position, I submit my testimony to give you hope that God has never left my side and my children and I have seen miracles and salvations as God works through our submitted vessels. Our mourning turned to literal dancing as we learned to worship. We rejoice in our Savior’s love for us, and we are free to live in His will. All things will turn to good for those who love Him.”  (Texas) (posted 3/23/2015)
“After many months and an OW, my husband and I are finally on the verge of our suddenly. He texted me one day saying that he and the OW were parting ways. Since then, he has had me and the children over for dinner and even stayed the night and made Christmas cookies as a family! Our almighty God is powerful and will deliver every promise He makes to you! God brought me to RMM so that I could learn how to love and appreciate Him in all His glory! Amen.”  (Oregon) (posted 12/29/2014)
“It's a bittersweet day today. My husband just left to go back to work in another state. Just a couple weeks ago he surprised me with an email of encouragement, and then he wanted to come see us for a few days. Praise The LORD! We are taking it slow. I do have fears, but God keeps a verse replaying for me to remember - Joshua 1:9. I can't wait for the day that my husband comes here to stay or asks us to move there. I'll keep praying for him and her, and know that God's hand is in this. I'm not pushing him because God's whispers of ‘Be patient’ are always reminding me that He is working in this and God has to finish some miracles over there.” (Florida)  (posted 7/23/2012)
"My husband told me to tear up the divorce papers! He still has not come home but I'm still praying. This has given me hope that I must remain in God's will. Don't you give up! Where there is love there is hope!" (Georgia) (posted 3/18/2011)
The LORD builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel. He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:2-5 (posted 3/31/2011)
“My prodigal left me and my children and moved to another state. He came home for court proceedings this week. I prayed to God for a specific sign to KEEP standing even though the date is approaching fast. I asked God that I'd hear one of three songs on the radio from our wedding and one was ‘I'll Still Be Loving You’ by Restless Heart. I hit scan on the radio and BAM, there it was! I haven't heard it on the radio in a decade! I frequently ask for ‘signs and wonders’ and I get them! Now I am praying God will send signs and wonders to my prodigal husband. Thank you fellow standers for prayer.”  (Georgia)  (posted 10/23/2011)
We serve an awesome God. My husband and I have been separated for several months. We have had minimal contact. I have been fasting and crying out to God for Him to show me that he is working on the other side of the mountain. I felt the Holy Spirit wanting me to invite him for Thanksgiving. I was not wanting to because I could not take the rejection but I did it anyway, and, to my surprise, he did accept the invitation to dinner. We both agreed to not talk about our current situation but to have wonderful day and be thankful for everything. Remember to thank God for everything He does for us all. My love for Him grows more and more. God bless you all. God gave me Mathew 21.”  (Colorado)   (posted 12/2/2013)
"After several false starts home on the part of my spouse, I have been harboring resentment toward him. We have had no contact in months. It felt like God had deserted me. Praise God for giving me a tiny glimpse of His Spirit at work. Late last night I received a text message from my husband asking me to keep praying because the evil one was after him. Thank You Lord for reminding me that the real battle is against satan, not the other woman." (Michigan) (posted 10/3/2008)
PTL! The week before Easter a friend of mine had a revelation through a dream of things to come. Just a week after her dream and Easter, I have experienced my Easter miracle. My beloved has accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. PTL! I had been praying for the Lord to send workers into his harvest field (Matthew 9:37-38). The Lord has answered; he has chosen my mom to be the person to guide him to the Lord. Thank You Jesus for so many suddenlies during Easter time.” (Dominican Republic)  (posted 4/15/2013)
“Since September it has been one thing after another. I almost lost my mother, financial issues and complete silence for many months from my husband. My prayers seemed to decrease with each passing month, especially during the holiday months. It took everything I had to pray when I did pray. A week into this new year, I really broke down to God and prayed for a glance over my mountain. Four days later I received a text from my husband that he left the OW. I praised God instantly. I know I have to pray harder and consistently now more than ever. I thank God so much for not giving up when I had obviously begun too. He is a merciful God.”  (Florida)   (posted 1/18/2014)
“PTL! I have so many testimonies that the enemy has tried to keep me from sharing. But God! My husband and I have been separated for a couple of years. The enemy tried to use another person to keep him away from me and our children, but we would wake up to him sleeping on the couch or he would come home when we were gone. He filed for divorce a couple of months back out of rage. Surprisingly, he showed up at our doorstep hours after he did so. He never followed through and the case was dismissed! Just last night my husband asked me if I renewed the lease on our townhome and where do I want to live. Standers be strong, the Lord will bring us through!”  (Michigan) (posted 9/11/2014)
“Praise God! My husband moved out again, told me he did not love me, and that the divorce papers were in the mail. I prayed and prayed. We made unsuccessful contact as I tried to zip my lips but could not hold the anger in. I prayed to God for forgiveness and was given no sign of hope. I trusted the Lord through the storm and my husband contacted me wanting to seek counseling. I was speechless. I thank God because only He could do the impossible.”  (Texas)  (posted 5/27/2013)
“PTL! My husband has not even wanted to talk about us or our marriage at all, just saying he wants a divorce. God gave me a vision and spoke a word to me about him and I asked the Lord to please open communication between us again and give me the chance to share what he showed me to my husband. Before today, he would say he didn’t want to hear about God. We texted one another all day today and I shared what God showed me about him, and he received it. He also said he loved me and told me he was sorry for what he is doing to me. I told him I forgive him and that my love for him is deep, but God’s love for him is so much greater. He accepted everything I said. I give God all the glory; this is a major breakthrough! And I know my suddenly is coming soon. We must not give up!”  (Kentucky)   (posted 2/26/2014)
 "I thank my Lord for His faithfulness. My husband and I separated. The Lord brought me to your web site and I began my stand for the restoration of my marriage and for the restoration of my husband's spiritual walk with the Lord. After many difficult situations, God has brought my husband home today. God is faithful." (Texas) (posted 3/22/2007)

“Although my mom hurt me in many ways, and terribly abused me, our Sovereign Lord allowed it and saved me. I see the pain I suffered as part of His incredible plan to rescue me. Our Lord's redemption I would not have understood had I not endured what I did as a child and as an adult. I do thank God for my mom, although I choose to separate myself and my family from her in order to protect our lives. I pray for her and I love her. At times I feel sad and miss participating in a daughter-mother relationship with my own mother. Graciously, Abba has given me the precious gift of my own daughter who I grow spiritually with while mentoring and preparing her heart for Godliness. I thank God for giving me the gift of mothering my child, and for renewing my mind in order to love and train her in the way she should choose. Praise God! Happy Mother’s Day”  (North Carolina)

“PTL! Fellow Standers, never give up. My spouse recently returned home. Psalm 147:15 (AMP)He sends forth His commandment to the earth; His word runs very swiftly. We are so happy that he is home and I know that God heals all wounds in His time. I pray my spouse will become saved. Keep praying and fasting, the Lord will deliver your prodigal home. Just keep the faith and know that it's not over ‘til God says it’s over. Please be encouraged by my testimony, God delivers.”  (Alabama)  (posted 1/14/2013)
“I am so excited! My husband came home. He had been gone since October, but began telling me that he loved me and being in contact with me on a regular basis. He told me earlier this month that he wanted to come home. At this point, I am just trusting in God. He has not forsaken me yet and I know He will give me the strength to endure whatever comes.” (Georgia) (posted 1/28/2005)
"He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers."  Malachi 4:6a (posted 5/12/2011)
“I am separated from my husband and I am totally financially dependent on my father. I asked God help him with finances and God gave my sister a good paying job. PTL. Praying for God's mighty power to work in all marriages.” (India) (posted 2/20/2015)
“My husband came and told me he wasn’t sure of his love for me after many years of a good marriage. I was completely blind-sided by his confession. I began to claim Jesus’ authority over our marriage and home. I pleaded with God to remove the pain. Instead God began a hard/ beautiful work in me. My husband left for months. I kept praying, had others interceding, and stood. He is home now for several months. We are very slowly healing. Has it been easy? No, but God has been so amazing and is becoming my everything! God is so faithful. When all seems lost, He never disappoints, leaves or quits loving. I believe God is going to use what Satan meant for evil for His glory in us!”  (Alabama) (posted 8/4/2014)
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.  1 John 5:14  (posted 7/30/2012)
“Just as our local power company took time to restore the power to our home after Hurricane Wilma, so did God take his time to restore my marriage. The power company needed to make sure that everything was fixed and all the connections were intact. Then they needed to make sure that other people around us were ready. They needed to make sure that everything was 100% before they threw that switch, so that the power did not just flicker and then go off again, but comes on and stays on for good. This is how God has restored my marriage to my wife. After being separated for two years, we are finally restored. God will restore your marriage. If you try to do it yourself, your restoration will only be a 'flicker.' Let God do it. He knows what He is doing and He will do it right so that your family's restoration brings permanent 'light' to your home." (Florida) (From a man who attends Rejoice Pompano.) (posted 11/11/2005)
