"Praise God, my husband returned home after being gone for three months. I felt like giving up at first, but the more I started reading God's Word I knew his promises. I went through some ups and downs, but I learned to trust and depend in the Lord. I started speaking positive about my husband and my marriage. Know that God's Word is true. If He did it for me, He'll do it for you."  (North Carolina)


"My husband has been home for the last two months. As you often say, he returned home suddenly. Only four days before he returned home, he was trying to get me to answer some questions so he could complete divorce paperwork. I repeatedly refused telling him I would not and could not talk to him about divorce. We have been in marriage counseling since the day he came home. Each day I see the manifestation of the work God is doing in my marriage. I believe that he is now seeing the truth, God's plan is and has always been to restore our marriage. He has decided to finalize the adoption of our daughter, go on the family trip to Disney and to combine our finances again, all of which seemed impossible only a short time ago. I know my husband will soon be turning his life completely over to the Lord. All the praise and glory goes to our Lord, Jesus Christ."  (Georgia)


"Although my husband never left our home physically, he left emotionally and spiritually. He left the church. He talked badly about Christians. He had started pursuing other woman and told me he no longer had feelings for me. He was looking for somewhere to go.  Since he wasn't able to leave, I was able to stand with him still under our roof. God has taught me where I was wrong as well as shown me how to be patient and trust Him to restore my marriage. A few days ago my husband told me I am the love of his life and that he needs me in his life. He has returned to church and is allowing God to work in him. He acknowledged that he knows our marriage was saved because of my prayers. Every day God gives us something new. There are still battles, but we are winning the war. The love we now share is a new one and a growing one." (California)


"Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the LORD rejoice. Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always...Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." I Chronicles 16:8-11,34


"My husband and I met in junior high school and married after high school. We had been married 14 years when I realized he was pulling out of the marriage. I refused to give in. I found Rejoice Marriage Ministries and I was standing on the rock of Jesus and His Word and promises. My husband got an apartment and we struggled. Even though family members, a pastor, and my counselor all told me to give up and go on with my life, I knew in my heart of hearts that was not what I was supposed to do. Eventually my husband announced he was moving home. When he got there, he was not totally recovered or healed, but now, after three years of healing, we are closer than we ever were. He attends our church with me every Sunday, and we are in Bible studies together. Our Lord keeps his promises, even when we are not faithful. Be encouraged, be ready, stay strong, and stay in the Word. Satan will not win your marriage unless you let him. Our Lord will do so much more than we can ever hope for or imagine. Trust your Lord." (Indiana)


"My husband confessed to an addiction to pornography. In our pastor's office, he further confessed to immorality. I wanted to walk out, but my pastor's wife asked me not to do so. Although we didn't separate, we went through a lot of heartache and pain. My husband quit his job because he traveled and that made it easier to sin. God planted a mustard seed of hope in my heart. I drowned myself in the Word of God, listened to sound preaching, attended Biblical counseling with my husband and a Christian support group. This Fall we facilitated a marriage class at our church and my husband is going to get his degree in Biblical Counseling. The Lord Jesus Christ resurrected our dead marriage and it is better than what we ever had before. I know God heals hurting marriages because He healed mine." (North Carolina)


"God has restored my marriage. He has been faithful even in those moments when I thought I could not take it any longer My husband has been home since June and our marriage is stronger than it has ever been. There is still work to be done, but God is in control. Since it was not my effort that restored our marriage, but God Himself, I am trusting Him. I pray, pray and pray. I read the devotionals Charlyne sends us every day. Thank you Charlyne and thank You God for sending her to me when You did." (Arizona)


"After almost six months of separation, my wife and I are getting back together. We have found that acceptance of each other and faith in our Lord is much more powerful than trying to go it alone. I was for sure our marriage was done when she filed the papers, but God changed our hearts, and pointed us in the direction we needed to go to reconcile our differences and to show us true compassion and forgiveness. Thank you Bob and Charlyne for the daily reminders to not give up on our marriage." (Tennessee)


"I first came to standing when my second husband was taken into sin by someone he had met through work. They both divorced their spouses to be together. As God led me through this difficult time I realized that my spouse was not the only prodigal. I am the prodigal from my first marriage. We have been divorced seven years because of my sin and his addictions. He never stopped loving me or wanting his family back. God told me to restore my marriage and after much Bible study I realized that He was speaking to me of my covenant marriage. I have caused a lot of damage and hurt to many people, but thank God that He has brought me to my senses and saved me from myself and my sin. There is a wedding date set for January 1 to re-marry the husband of my youth. God gave us each a new love and forgiveness towards each other for all the pain that we have caused each other. God is also using me to lead my husband to Him by my faith and giving my husband the tools he needs to overcome his addictions. Our children could not be happier and neither could we." (State removed due to nature of testimony.)


"Last Thanksgiving my husband of 15 years came home from his job in another state to inform me that our marriage was over. It was hopeless. He was tired of the pain and wanted to be happy. I didn't know he had been unhappy; it was a shock to me. His isolation in a 'far country' allowed him to be deceived. He became the proverbial prodigal. I cried out to God and sought God's direction in His Word. I didn't know what standing was, but that is what He had me do. I travailed in prayer and fasted. I prayed that God would turn his heart toward home again. He did, but, my husband was double minded. I used spiritual warfare, rebuking and binding demonic forces, and I pleaded the Blood of Jesus over my husband. Over the past year, I have seen him change back into the sweet loving sane husband he used to be. This Thanksgiving he is eager to come home and just enjoy his family life. During that very trying time, I read "Charlyne Cares" every day. It was such a source of strength, encouragement, and direction for me. There were times when I just wanted to give up, or let him have it, or whatever. But, the daily devotionals stabilized me to stand." (New York)


"My husband and I are entering our ninth month of restoration. Three years ago he began an affair. Thus began my schooling from the Lord of how and why to stand for our marriage. At one point we were within hours of being divorced. All the while the Lord kept encouraging me that this was only the shadow of death not the real death of our marriage. At times the grief was almost unbearable, but the Lord faithfully walked me through each hard day and always provided everything me and our three children needed. Three years and two false starts for home later, I can say the Lord has healed, strengthened, and set our 19 year marriage on a strong foundation. He used Rejoice Marriage Ministries so powerfully to help us. Thank you  forever." (Arizona)


"I first give honor to God, my Lord and my Savior. My husband and I are living together under one roof. This is a big step considering we both had separate places and separate lives. We were separated for nine months. My husband called me one Sunday after church and we have been together ever since. The Enemy found a way into our marriage through our separation and I am dealing with some things. I know God works everything out for our good and I have to leave that to Him. God knows he is "at home" with my marriage."  (North Carolina)


"After being separated over a year, God is in the process of restoring my marriage. My husband is living at home again on the weekends and works out of town all week. God has done this, despite the fact that my husband had an affair, a non-covenant child, left me, left the ministry and our church. But God is faithful. What God has promised, He is also able to perform." (Texas)


"After three years of separation, the Lord brought my spouse back home. He left me to raise our daughter alone while he pursued his selfish dreams and desires. He was truly blinded by the rulers of  this dark world. But God! After having almost no contact for the first year, through many tears and prayers, God changed his heart.  We began to communicate and even began dating. It often gets hard on this road to restoration, and often I want to give up, but God continues to push me forward through His words and encouragement. I know that God's hand is still at work. I thank God and praise Him as this Thanksgiving is my birthday and I will be able to celebrate it with my husband, daughter and our extended family in our home."  (New York)


"God really does heal marriages. I was the one who thought the grass was greener on the other side. When our marriage wasn't going according to my plan, I began to confide in another man. After divorcing my husband I was left feeling so empty inside. The other man was the one I thought would make my life complete. Thank God my husband was led to your ministry. He learned to pray the scriptures and stood for our marriage and prayed for my salvation. The Holy Spirit began to do a work in me. The Lord softened my heart and by God's grace I was saved. We have been remarried for over two years and our relationship with the Lord and one another keeps getting better. Please do not give up on your marriage or on God. What He did for us, He can do for you. Always remember that the grass is greenest where it is watered." (Michigan)


"After four years of standing through trials and tribulations, my husband is home. Praise God. On Sunday at church God told me that it was granted and my husband came home this week. I give all of the praise to God because through all of this I became closer to Him and I am thankful for all of it. My family is back together for the Holidays and many more to come. Thank you, for your words of encouragement, love, and support. My prayers will continue to go up for those standers still waiting. God answers prayers, Amen." (Texas)


"My husband told me he didn't love me and didn't think he had ever loved me. He left me for another person and soon was asking for a divorce. I was still reeling from these circumstances when my father was diagnosed with cancer. I began to cry out to Jesus and was led to your ministry. I read about the sightings of Covenant Transport trucks as signs with some amusement. Later though, when I was at my lowest point, I was at an intersection with a long light and I bowed my head for a few seconds and asked my Lord to please show me for certain I must continue to stand. I looked up and there making a long, slow turn in front of me was a Covenant Transport Truck. It must have come from around the corner while I prayed. I startled my daughter laughing and praising God. My husband suddenly asked me to take him back a few weeks after that. My husband now says he never stopped loving me and is committed to restoring our marriage. My father's recent tests show no sign of cancer and a rib that was involved shows signs of healing." (Louisiana)


"My husband of 25 years and I were separated for eight months, including the holidays last year. People, including my pastor, told me to file for divorce. I was devastated and asked God what he wanted me to do. I kept receiving the word "stay." I drew closer to God than I've ever been. My husband came home eight months ago. It hasn't been easy, but I thank God every day that my husband is home and that he will stay home. I stand on Hebrews 6:15; 'Then Abraham waited patiently, and received what God had promised." (California)


 'Praise God for His faithfulness. I put before the Lord a request that my husband would be home in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with our family. My husband told me about a week ago that he was thinking of coming home the first week of December. I was grateful for that news but felt God calling me to continue to pray for a Thanksgiving homecoming. Today at church my husband came to me and told me he would be moving home on Tuesday. Two full days before Thanksgiving. God is faithful in keeping His promises. Our Lord does give exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ever hope or imagine. He did it for me. He will do it for you. Glory be to God." (State withheld due to nature of testimony.)


"I want to share how great God is. After being separated for two years, my husband has returned. He is a changed man. Still we await the final victory of his accepting Christ as his personal Savior. Stand firm, even though it may not be in our time frame that our prodigal returns. The Lord knows what’s best for us." (Florida)


"My husband and I were married for 20 years when he left for greener pastures because of sin and blindness on both our parts. After five years, the Lord got my attention, and after fully surrendering to Him, my husband came home unexpectedly after two non-covenant marriages. On the day he received a divorce from the second non-covenant at 10:00 A.M. we were remarried with our daughters as our witnesses. Seventeen years later my husband became emotionally involved with a young woman at work. He truly suffered knowing how wrong he was. The Lord restored him, and our marriage and we are more in love today than 45 years ago when we were first married. We praise God and give him all the glory for His love and for Bob and Charlyne's ministry. We are truly thankful. Things that are impossible with men are possible with God." (Oklahoma)


"My husband left 18 months ago. He then came home unexpectedly thru the power of God. We are doing well with God's help and are serving in our local church together. God is good." (Florida)


"One year ago, my world came crashing down around me. I'd been a military wife and learned my husband led a secret life behind my back. His life was filled with sin. When he was home he was a devoted father, husband, and servant in the church. I was devastated and lost all hope. He never actually left the home, but emotionally he was gone. This man was stone cold towards me. I ran out of my own strength very early on, but God lifted me up and carried me through the most difficult journey of my life. My family and Christian friends told me to give up and that I was justified, but God promised me my marriage would be restored. I chose to trust in God and to this day my marriage is stronger than it has ever been and I love my husband more than I thought possible. I tried to give up almost daily, but God's Word and His promises gave me hope and increased my faith. I knew if I gave up on my husband he was a ticking time bomb and nobody else would care about his salvation and love him like I did. I see God working in his life daily and I am amazed at the man he's become." (Virginia)


"My husband and I had been married for 20 years, with two children in college, when he left. I was devastated to say the least, and had no one to turn to other than God. After a few false starts, he came home in July. He has given up his apartment, is directing his finances to our home, and talks of our future together. While he was gone, I spent time with God, listened to Charlyne's tapes, read books from Bob and Charlyne and others that helped me get closer to God. Although he is home, the struggle is not over. The devil is not pleased that we are back together, but I also know that we serve a God who has already conquered the devil and we will succeed because God wants us to be together." (Georgia)


"My husband and I remarried. We were divorced six weeks when we remarried. Our separation was horrific. I lost my job and had major health problems, but God provided. Hearing some of the turmoil and struggles that my husband went through, I knew each one was God's piercing of his heart. Don't give up. Stand firm. God is our Healer." (South Carolina)
