“I have been encouraged regularly by RMM since I came across it. My suddenly has finally come back after many months away from home. Glory to God. This testimony shall be permanent in my home and family in the mighty name of Jesus. I encourage others that … Your expectations shall never be cut short … HE IS ABLE TO DO MUCH MORE THAN YOU EXPECT.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 7/21/2017)

“My husband called and said the OW is gone. He said he was miserable with her. He has asked me to accept his child he had with the OW. I know God will give me strength to endure this next part of the journey. Praise God. He answers prayers. Look to the Lord, He will help you. NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR SPOUSE. God is in control. Be encouraged.”  (Canada) (posted 7/21/2017)
“The world is watching. Unaware in your mess, others are paying attention. Through the pain I have cried out to God to please let me give up. One night as I tried to fall asleep I heard, ‘If you remain in me and my Word remains in you…look up the rest.’ I did. He wasn’t letting me give up. A neighbor I haven’t spoken to recently asked how I’m doing. All looks dead and everyone tells me to give up. She said, ‘I feel like God has a big plan for you. You have affected my life; your faith is a big inspiration to me. Not many move across the country to save a marriage.’ I want to help others, but don’t see how I can when I’m drowning. Someone I haven’t spoken with or seen in awhile suddenly says I am inspiration. Your mountain may not be moving. But everyone outside the mess is watching. Just because you are drowning, does not mean you aren’t a lifeline to someone else.”  (Nebraska) (posted 7/21/2017)
“It’s been up and down with false starts on reconciliation. The past few weeks were especially tough as my spouse told me he’s moving away. I hit an all-time low. I prayed and prayed and became weary, thinking maybe I should just give up, as restoration now seemed impossible. But God stepped in! My spouse rang out of the blue, asking to come over and see our daughter. We had a lovely time. It felt so right being together again, like old times. He was even affectionate towards me! This was the amazing work of God just when I needed it. I don’t know what comes next, but I trust God completely! He has restored my hope and strength to continue my stand. I still await my ‘suddenly’ and pray my husband’s heart be softened and his eyes opened. I know nothing is impossible with God and things happen in His perfect timing. PTL.”  (United Kingdom) (posted 7/21/2017)
“Praise God, she is home! The season was one of refinement, humility, God’s grace, patience, trusting and knowing that God is good. I knew that God called me to stand for our marriage no matter how difficult it was. She came home unexpectedly last fall and we are expecting our first child in November. Never give up. Don’t listen to the opinion of ‘man.’ Trust God’s plan and follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit. Choose to forgive and love unconditionally.”  (Texas) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My wife left several months ago and our divorce was scheduled for trial in two weeks. During that time, I cried out to God; He broke me completely. I was a Christian but I never had that deep love relationship with God that He wants with each of us. He revealed to me that my wife would seek help and return home. I prayed for confusion, delay, and chaos before the trial, and I received it. My wife and her attorney asked for more time. I’m standing tall in faith that God is working to heal this marriage. I trust in Him fully for He is a God of restoration, healing, and love. Praise You Father for being immeasurably more than we can understand. Hands to the Heavens!”  (West Virginia) (posted 7/21/2017)
“PTL. Today is my birthday and I am so grateful to God for yet another year and that my spouse sent me a birthday message. That was God confirming to me that He is working and softening my spouse’s heart. It may seem small, but I choose to praise the Lord for even the small victories. God knows how much a message from your spouse on your birthday means when you are on this journey. Let’s keep praying and praising. With God all things are possible. In God’s perfect time He will restore our marriages. Mathew 19:26 – Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”  (Maryland) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My husband and I separated for several years. During those first few years of our separation, I became very bitter. Towards the end I even allowed hatred to enter my heart. After several years of living this way, I cried out to God. I reconciled my life to the Lord and asked for forgiveness. It was as though a huge weight lifted off me, and I felt peace. I decided that day I would surrender all to God. I found the RMM website and began to stand in prayer for my husband and our marriage. God began dealing with my heart and I started to see things in a new light. I realized I had to forgive my husband as God had also forgiven me. After two years of trusting the Lord, my suddenly happened! I got a text from my husband saying he wanted to speak with me.  We met and to my great surprise he said he did not want a divorce and asked me to forgive him. Today, I realize it was necessary that I go through the process of brokenness. It was a very difficult time in my life, but I emerged a totally different person. As a result, I am a better wife and companion. My husband and I have a good relationship, and I am eternally grateful for the Lord’s faithfulness. He is more than able to restore us as individuals and also bring life to a dead marriage. ‘For nothing is impossible with God.’  Luke 1:37.”  (Massachusetts) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My husband confessed last week the reason why he abandoned us. He said he wants to start from zero and he wants to save his family. He also wants to forget everything and he feels sorry. I prepared myself for this moment for a long time and I knew exactly what to do and to Whom I should go. However, I failed due to the circumstances and I feel so bad for my behavior. This testimony is for those standers who are receiving a broken spouse today: Please pray even more for your marriage because the attacks will increase. Stop investigating and asking now! It will cause you more anxiety and pain. We know Who is bringing our spouses home; ask Him if you really need to know more and then obey. I have read this advice many times on the site but I still lost control, so please don’t complicate things now that God has answered your prayer and after so much time waiting.”  (Dominican Republic) (posted 7/21/2017)
“Thank You, Lord! After minimal communication and a quick decision to send a text last night, my husband and I talked on the phone today. He is having many good memories of us. Also, God is blessing me with a new business coaching female entrepreneur and my husband asked questions and talked about it for a half hour. It was so good to share this with him. He called back and said our last name would be good in the industry. He said to think of my last name as a gift from him that I could keep and he wouldn’t ask for it back. I was quite nervous and hung up quickly. I thank the Lord for this breakthrough and so many others. Father, whatever you want to do in my life, I’m Yours. Amen.”  (Florida) (posted 7/21/2017)
“If you had told me Friday morning I would be spending the weekend with my husband with him sleeping under the same roof I would have laughed. But God. My husband was arrested for DUI. The only phone number he could remember is mine. He’s a mere shadow of the man who left me – homeless, jobless and physically sick. Not the best of situations, but I’ll take it. He told me he was tired of living this way. Praying he’s come to the end of his running, his hardened heart will soften, he can be restored and I can just love him and zip my lips. Thanking God for this mess and praying. Not sure if this is it, but it’s a start.”  (Tennessee) (posted 7/21/2017)
“This morning I prayed from a place in my heart, repenting for the both of us, intervening for my husband. I was compelled to pray for his salvation and for him to have a personal relationship with Christ. Then I asked God for a sign because I’ve been standing for several years. I asked for a specific sign based on what God did for Gideon. The day came and went, nothing. Why God? Are you still restoring us God? What about the promises so unique from Your Word? Did I misunderstand? Is it too late? Has too much happened? Where are You God? Is there anything You can’t do? Is there a heart You can’t turn? Did You hear me God? Then I heard, ‘God does not lie, He keeps His promises. Trust, He does not lie!’ It was Numbers 23:19. One day, restoration will come and on that day God will get ALL the glory for the testimony He has given me. So, I continue to wait and TRUST HIM for He does not lie and He keeps His promises.”  (Georgia) (posted 7/21/2017)

“The Lord is so gracious and faithful. I have been praying for a few months for my in-home prodigal’s salvation. For a while, it seemed like nothing was happening. I decided to stop asking God for signs because I would find myself frantically looking for them. Well, God gave me a huge confirmation that He is working. I have been going to the International House of Prayer for a little over a month now. The other night my husband came into the room and said he forgot to show me that a customer at his job gave him a Bible. Inside the cover, there was a business card with a man’s name written on it. The card was from the International House of Prayer! God used that man to reach out to my husband. Isn’t God good? Praise Him!”  (Georgia) (posted 7/21/2017)
“God’s grace and peace be to all standers! My husband and I have been separated for a while. It was one of the most devastating times of my life. God took me on a brand-new journey of seeking, asking, and knocking, not just for the restoration of my marriage, but my life. There were days, weeks, months we had no communication. Somehow, God and His Word gave me strength. My spouse now has ‘the key’ to our home, and is making his way home! It has been and will be a journey, this is just the beginning. I can’t wait to share more of God’s forgiving grace with you. I’m still praying for us and your stand! What we do in secret, God will reward us openly!”  (Texas) (posted 7/21/2017)
“Last year my husband came out of the closet, left the church, and started living life as an openly gay man. Everyone but his parents wanted me to write him off, but I didn’t know what the right thing to do was. During this time, I found this website and read stories of restoration, and decided to stand for our marriage. A few months after he’d left, my husband asked me to move in with him, but only as friends. At first, I refused not wanting to see his new lifestyle firsthand, but one night I was reading your testimonials and a woman shared that she’d allowed her estranged husband to move back in. It made me realize that him asking us to move in was an answer to my prayers for restoration, it just didn’t look like I was expecting it to. So, we moved back in together as friends, but within a couple of months we resumed marital relations, and a few months after that he told me he wanted us to stay married and that he would look to God to deliver him from same-sex attraction.”  (Texas) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My husband left many years ago. I was devastated when I found out later there was an OW and he divorced me. I found RMM. He was miserable with the OW; everything Bob said in his books were identical to him. He left her; it was all in God’s plan. I believe we had to go through this to bring me back to God and through me I’m bringing my husband to God. He does not know anything about God, the Bible, or Jesus. I am teaching him. He seems more open than he ever has been. Praise God! I am happy to report that I am moving back home with him this Sunday. Praise God. My husband is a whole different person and so am I. Don’t give up! My suddenly wasn’t sudden as we have been seeing each other the last few years off and on, but it only happened after I relinquished it and said. ‘I’m done trying, it’s all up to you Lord. Do what You will for me; I’ll be happy Your way.’”  (Kansas) (posted 7/21/2017)

“I’d like to thank God for His many blessings. I surrendered all contact with my husband to the Lord because I didn’t want to hear the hurtful words. I want to be able to pray for him and our marriage without any distractions. I have many praise reports. On my birthday, my husband agreed to read Songs of Solomon, Chapter 1, with me. He also sent me a video that he made of our family. Instead of saying he’s never coming back, he’s now saying that he’s not ready to come home, yet. While I was on the phone with my husband, my three-year-old asked,’ Mommy, do you love Daddy?’ I said yes. He asked my husband, ‘Daddy, do you love Mommy?’ My husband said yes. I’ve been praying for a financial blessing and I found out that I’m being transferred to a closer location and I’m getting a raise. God is good!”  (Virginia) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My wife and I have been separated for a few years. I began standing and finding my relationship with God and looking for answers. A year in she began a new relationship and seemed to be done with having a life with me and our children together. Our anniversary came around and I was not going to acknowledge it. Right at that week, I found her relationship was over and she reached out on our day. The next month and a half we communicated a lot and did many things as a family. I know this was God at work as I have never stopped praying for her. Just as quickly as she seemed like she was coming back, she went cold again. I am still praying and know God is still working and there must be more work for myself and her to do. I know in my heart what the Lord wants for us and I know He is still working on me as well as her. I am grateful God is taking His time to let us find Him and make the changes we need in our lives and in His time, find our way back together permanently!”  (Virginia) (posted 7/21/2017)
“I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. I have a praise in my heart to our God who is awesome, faithful, and powerful! I am learning that God wants all of me. All of my mind, soul, and spirit. Every time I read the daily devotional or read Charlyne’s book about a restored marriage, I get convicted in areas where I’ve doubted God’s power to restore not just my marriage, but every broken area in my life. I am free to forgive and walk in love with folks I’ve harbored hatred in my heart for for years. I am glad for how God is healing me. I am happy and excited about being a better me. I will be ready when my suddenly takes place. He knows what all needs to happen in me. Last year this time, I was so enraged and full of anger. Glory to God for His love and for RMM’s Biblical-based materials.” (California) (posted 7/21/2017)
“When I learned of my wife’s online affair some years ago, I was devastated. But I wanted our marriage restored, she did not. Now she’s in a physical ‘relationship’ and ready to file for divorce. Our sons and I are hurting, but I have begun to see her as God sees her – taken captive, blinded to truth, doing the enemy’s bidding, defending herself with the lies of the enemy, and worldly acceptance of her sin as ‘normal.’ I know that God will NEVER leave His precious daughter alone and that all His promises over her and our family are still: Yes, and Amen. I know who she is in Christ, and He is showing me what unconditional love and true forgiveness look like. He’s helping me walk in it and lead our boys to do the same. The battle is long, but I know who wins. I’m going to be there when He routs the enemy, to receive my wife back. (Isaiah 46:9-10).”  (Louisiana) (posted 7/21/2017)
“God is so awesome and so worthy of praise!! My God is showing me signs He is working on the other side of the mountain. This morning the devil was messing with my head, so I asked God to please send me a bold sign. I asked Him to please show me that I need to stand for my marriage. Guess what … He showed me!! He is so faithful and with Him nothing is impossible! He keeps giving me Matthew 7:7-8 – “Ask and you shall receive.” Please keep me in your prayers and I am praying for everyone standing and your prodigals as well.”  (Alabama) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My stand has been long. Many times, I have called it quits, took my ring off and told myself to go on without my beloved. But more times, I have been recharged by the Holy Spirit through RMM, friends and my children and grandchildren to continue my stand. Over the Fourth of July weekend my daughter and granddaughter visited. My toddler granddaughter had a beautiful outfit on that I was pretty sure came from the place of origin of the OW. I know I would have inquired and wanted confirmation of it had I not read Psalm 48:11 earlier and had focused on my God and not my circumstances. As we watched this toddler swirl to patriot music in her red, white and blue outfit I thanked God for all my family including the OW. And I thanked Him for helping me to stand firm once again when earlier I was thinking, ‘Why bother, there is no one here to see or hear me stand.’ God always know when we need encouragement to stand and He will bring it even in the form of a tiny toddler dancing.”  (Idaho) (posted 7/21/2017)
“PTL!! My suddenly is coming soon. I have been standing for a few of months while my husband lived with the OW. I had started to give up hope as last week our youngest son asked his dad to come home and he told him, ‘You know I can’t do that.’ Well this week I went to prayer service at church and everyone prayed for our marriage. That evening my husband brought our son back home from a visit and we talked; our communication was almost nothing at this point. He told me he loves me and misses me. Praise God. He let me know he was tired of fighting God and has thought about me every day he has been gone and that the OW is gone. He still hasn’t moved back home. But I know that God is moving on the other side of the mountain and I’m so very thankful. Everyone keep your head up, suddenlies do happen. And keep your ring on!”  (Ohio) (posted 7/21/2017)
“My most interesting season has come! Around Easter God had been speaking to me about my husband. He’d been showing me and my 10-year-old dreams about what was to come of his non-covenant engagement. They were entering into a season of separation and God was in the process of humbling my prodigal. I looked at my calendar and to my surprise I had at some point entered a decree on a specific date declaring peace. Things were rough this season and I foolishly doubted and even chuckled at the word ‘peace.’ And then it happened. He called me in tears as the other woman had packed her bags and took off with their non-covenant child. I showed mercy and comforted him. My baby girl clung onto me in worship tonight and I knew that she views our household as a solid foundation because our Rock is Jesus! This is the beginning to my suddenly. I continue to wait patiently on the Lord. God told me specifically to walk in love this season and I shall do exactly that!”  (California) (posted 7/21/2017)

“Suddenly my husband asked me to live with him if he moves to Europe. He wanted to stay married. He said I’m the opposite of the OW. With spiritual warfare and praying the Word of God, the jezebel and adultery spirit lost and God won. I cried a lot in private and turned it to Jesus. I was left when pregnant and lost the home, speaking faith to little children and their puppies. Friends left me for honoring my marriage covenant. But God stayed. I became an ordained deliverance minister from this deepening with Christ Jesus. Nothing is impossible with God!”  (Texas) (posted 7/11/2017)
“PTL. I have been standing for some time for my in-home prodigal. My suddenly has come! My husband told me his relationship with the OW is over. Since day one when I found out about his affair he has told me he loves me and will never leave me and our young son, but he could not leave the OW either because he loved her too. I struggled with sadness, anger, jealousy, but one thing has never changed, God’s love for me. He has given me hope and many signs to keep me going. My faith and relationship with God is in a place where it has never been before in my life. This was all part of His plan to bring me closer to Him. Please don’t give up! Pray every day and never stop. I surrendered myself and my marriage to God and my suddenly has come. I will never stop praising my Lord and I will pray for all of you to have your suddenly. God is good!”  (Connecticut) (posted 7/11/2017)
“After a couple years of separation, then divorce, and being back together for a few years, my prodigal and I just applied for a new marriage license last week. Although your restoration may not look like you expect, God is faithful and He will keep His promises. We now have 60 days to re-tie the knot. Thank you Jesus! This ministry was a daily encouragement to me on the days where it felt like this would never happen. Thank you for being a light and hope in a world that no longer values the covenant marriage.”  (New York) (posted 7/11/2017)

“Today I talked with my prodigal spouse for over an hour. God was present. I was able to share how God has been working in my life. Glory to God! I told her I loved her. We have been divorced for several months, but I have been standing for years. Please pray God reveals His truth to her life. God is faithful and has been busy in both our lives. He has answered my prayers for wisdom and discernment. I’ve also started fasting and praying for standers worldwide. Remember, while we often get preoccupied with God’s work in our prodigal, we are also being prepared through our stand. We can’t expect our prodigal to move until our hearts have changed.”  (Minnesota) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I just wanted to encourage all Standers to keep going, no matter the circumstances. I wanted to give up more than once. But God is always faithful and always stands me back up and continues on with me. I was the prodigal, and had ‘my plans.’ BUT GOD, He changed my heart, my plans, and has guided me every step along the way. I didn’t ask God to break me and then mold me, I didn’t ask God to change my ‘free will,’ He just did. His will is way bigger than mine and all of our prodigals. Don’t feel the condemnation of thinking if your stand isn’t perfect then God won’t restore your marriage/family. God isn’t looking for perfection. He’s looking for perseverance. God loves us, and loves our marriages. We have been blessed to be called to stand and be the first one to see God work on our loved ones. Hang in there, don’t give up. God has not lost a victory ever. Your harvest is on its way. Showers of blessings are already ordered for us.”  (Ohio) (posted 7/11/2017)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Today, I am writing this testimony in faith, because what I am hoping and praying for has not actually happened, but I want to exercise my faith muscles and praise God before my miracle arrives so He will know that I trust Him to do it, and not my own strength. Now I will pause here, until my miracle arrives later today…. Well, my miracle arrived at 10:00 am (less than an hour after I began writing this testimony in faith)! I was offered an employment opportunity that would not only increase my income, but also allow me to work closer to home (before I was driving nearly 60 miles round trip to work). After many months of frantically searching for a better job with no offers, I gave it all to God because I was exhausted and discouraged. He then did what I couldn’t do in days! All I can say is that God is good and His mercies never fail.”  (Texas) (posted 7/11/2017)
“Today I found out that my husband has been listening to worship services online (he has not attended church in years.) He also revealed that he is keeping a ‘self journal’ (also something new for him.) Our wedding anniversary is quickly approaching and I pray that our Lord reveals himself to my husband in a BIG way!”  (Ohio) (posted 7/11/2017)
“PTL my husband is coming around much more to visit with our son and communication is improving. He did agree to meet with a pastor at our church together and at least once alone. I see God’s work in the moments I’m the least encouraged. A few Fridays ago, I left his apartment feeling very deflated with little hope.  As soon as I reached home Lori sent a bonus Charlyne Cares that evening about marriage and the devil’s attack on them. That was God and His reminder to just trust and believe. I often refer back to Mark 10:9, let no man separate what God has joined, and Ezekiel 11:19, I will remove the heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh. Stay strong standers”  (Maryland) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I’ve been standing awhile now. My husband has an OW who is pregnant with his child. We only communicate about our kids and even that is rare. Saturday night he texted me late and we texted for over an hour. He was asking questions about my life. He initiated conversation and it wasn’t about our kids. This from a man who doesn’t like to speak to me, doesn’t want anything to do with me and has told me he wants a divorce. After, I was thanking God and He reminded me His thoughts are not my thoughts nor His ways my ways. I didn’t fully grasp that verse until now. I would always come up with scenarios in my head on how things would work, but no longer. God showed me His ways are better than anything I could have thought or imagined. He does work even when we cannot see it. I never would’ve imagined I would have this conversation with my husband. God is the God of the impossible and is a miracle working God.”  (Texas) (posted 7/11/2017)
“My husband and I are waiting for a divorce date and have been living apart for a while. Today he asked to come over to get something from our house. Usually I would have put boundaries in place and said no, but God has been teaching me to trust Him, that He is working on my husband’s character and not to be afraid of him. He came, we talked, I zipped my lips and listened. It turns out he is confused and lost, despite the outward appearance of living a life of luxury and happiness.  All my fears of him being better without me evaporated. I saw a man wrestling with sin and wanting to come back to the Lord and home. I am fasting and praying off his demons and believe I glimpsed a breakthrough in his spirit today. We hugged and kissed and my amazing husband came back to life from oppression for an evening. Praise the Lord, this is a MASSIVE breakthrough! The impossible is possible!”  (France) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I have been standing a few years now. My husband is an in-home prodigal again. He has left several times. There is an OW and it’s been very difficult. But I wanted to share of God’s faithfulness to me. Last week I was losing the promise. I was wondering if I had heard God correctly or if it was just me wanting this so badly. I studied the word on Gideon and he asked God for a bold sign to know if he was hearing from God. So I decided to ask God to see a rainbow in the sky over the weekend if I was to continue to stand and live with my husband. Saturday night as I watched my kids play in the yard, I looked up and had to do a double take. Across my house was a beautiful rainbow. I sat in awe of my God and took a picture to remind myself He is faithful and He answers us. I am walking by faith not by sight now! Thank You Lord.”  (Georgia) (posted 7/11/2017)
“My husband left last year and there has been much division, deception and chaos and yet, God’s voice has been clear and His promise to restore has been constant. My boys and I moved into my parents home and five months later, my Mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Our trial was set for late May. As the trial date drew near, my circumstances continued to deteriorate and God continued to tell me to be still. The trial got bumped until August. Since then, my husband and his girlfriend broke up, my kids and husband have moved out of her home, my husband has apologized to my mom and told her that he loves her! Praise God! God has other plans.”  (Florida) (posted 7/11/2017)
“PTL! It’s been a long few years for me. I struggle with zipping my lips and rejection. My divorce was final 2 months ago. Lately, when I text my husband he responds. He told me he loves me for the first time in a while and many times since. A few nights ago he told me he was listening to Christian music and today I found out he’s been going to church. He says he misses me sometimes. This is only God! Prayers are being answered. He lives in another state and says he’s been thinking about coming back here. He told me he’s single! Praise Jesus! I know my suddenly is very close. I pray I can be strong and zip my lips. God will make a way! Everything is possible with God. Please pray in agreement with me that God will fully open the lines of communication and that God’s will will be done in restoring my marriage to my husband. I am praying for all of you also.”  (Florida) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I would like to thank God for the strength, promises and signs He has given me in this season of my stand. Thanks to RMM for the anniversary card and prayers, thanks to my prayer partner and all the standers for your support and prayers when I submitted my court date in the month of June. The divorce was granted. I was hurt but I knew in my heart that it is not the end of my stand. It’s been hard and painful, but God has been right beside me. I get people at work asking why I’m still wearing my ring. My answer is always simple – because my stand is not over and I believe God can and will heal my husband and my marriage.”  (South Africa) (posted 7/11/2017)
“PTL. I have been standing for some time for my in-home prodigal. My suddenly has come! My husband told me his relationship with the OW is over. Since day one when I found out about his affair he has told me he loves me and will never leave me and our young son, but he could not leave the OW either because he loved her too. I struggled with sadness, anger, jealousy, but one thing has never changed, God’s love for me. He has given me hope and many signs to keep me going. My faith and relationship with God is in a place where it has never been before in my life. This was all part of His plan to bring me closer to Him. Please don’t give up! Pray every day and never stop. I surrendered myself and my marriage to God and my suddenly has come. I will never stop praising my Lord and I will pray for all of you to have your suddenly. God is good!”  (Connecticut) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I found RMM when my spouse decided to quit on our marriage. l sought the Lord even when l did not know how to. During his time in the wilderness he immediately married another. My heart broke but God is our healer. He gave me the verse about men ought always to pray and never give up and l always see a car with the never give up message when my spirit is low as a reminder. My husband is not back yet, but our communication has improved. l praise the Lord for He is mighty. l want to thank Charlyne and the RMM team for encouraging us to grow our faith, teaching about forgiving and loving the Lord Almighty.”  (Zimbabwe) (posted 7/11/2017)
“After a couple years of separation, then divorce, and being back together for a few years, my prodigal and I just applied for a new marriage license last week. Although your restoration may not look like you expect, God is faithful and He will keep His promises. We now have 60 days to re-tie the knot. Thank you Jesus! This ministry was a daily encouragement to me on the days where it felt like this would never happen. Thank you for being a light and hope in a world that no longer values the covenant marriage.”  (New York) (posted 7/11/2017)
“My husband left our home with the decision to start with the divorce process. In the middle of my pain, I started looking for advice at church, with friends and the internet. I found your ministry. I was so confused because even people at the church told me that I could choose divorce due to my husband’s adultery. My husband said he did not want to know anything about Jesus. However, reading your web site I understood what is happening in my husband’s heart and soul. I just stood praying for him, for his ‘inside man to be stronger’ as Ephesians Chapter 3 says. Yesterday he came back home, asking for forgiveness, saying the ‘divorce’ word will never be mentioned again between us. I am still praying that he surrenders his heart and comes back to the Jesus’ feet. Thanks to your ministry who gives me hope and the right advice according to the God’s heart.”  (Colombia) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I’m writing a testimony because I feel God tell me to praise Him in this storm. I have been standing for several months again after a year-long false start. It’s very painful. I’m using this time to draw near to God again and become all He wants me to be. He spoke to me and told me I would be going through a drought of positive things happening in my marriage and He was right. But I will praise Him because He is changing me and speaking to me. I choose to trust in His power to restore regardless of how barren this desert is right now. Our God hasn’t forgotten us and His name WILL break chains and strongholds! Our marriages are already restored in Jesus Name!”  (Florida) (posted 7/11/2017)
“Fellow standers, I just wanted to encourage you to keep standing and never give up. Unfortunately, that was not me. I gave up my stand and boy what a regret. My wife divorced me for a co-worker and is seemingly very happy living with the OM and has ‘moved on.’ Of course, I was devastated and was told to ‘move on’ as well. But I continue standing. Please pray my wife would come to her senses and escape the trap of the enemy, to tear down the wall of non-communication and watch over our four beautiful daughters. May the Lord bless you and keep you as you stand strong for your marriage. Never give up!”  (Texas) (posted 7/11/2017)
“I found RMM shortly after learning of my husband’s affair. I insisted he leave and attempted to file for divorce (every attempt was unsuccessful). After reading/hearing the many Charlyne Cares devotionals, Rejoice Pompano Bible Study, conference calls, testimonies of restored marriages and several of Bob and Charlyne’s books, I realized my mistake and decided to stand for my marriage. This journey of standing is not an easy one. I stumble and sometimes fall for the enemy’s tricks, but I get up and resume my stand. I refuse to be defeated and know the Lord will restore my marriage if I remain faithful and trust Him. It appears my husband is enjoying the prodigal life and says he has no desire to return to his family. I know God has something great in store for us and I don’t want to miss His blessing, so I continue to stand, knowing He’s working on the other side of the mountain regardless of what the circumstances look like. Please pray for me as I pray for you!”  (California) (posted 7/11/2017)
