About Our Newsletter
by Marilyn Conrad
The first issue of Covenant Comments was published in 1987 as a 2-page newsletter. Today, the publication is a 12-page newsletter distributed free to subscribers in nearly 90 countries on 5 continents around the world. Hundreds of others read the newsletter via our web site.
Its focus remains the same: to bring to you the good news that God not only heals broken marriages, He heals us as we stand for our marriages. “Love is not about counting the years, but making the years count.”
Each month, Covenant Comments contains Bible-based articles on topics such as faith, hope, love, healing, marriage, divorce, re-marriage, and principles for victorious living. Through these teachings, hundreds have learned how to walk in victory in everything from their marriages, to finances, and relationships.
We include praise reports from around the world to encourage and uplift. We share testimonies so that you will know that others are going through some of the same situations you are experiencing.
We’ve introduced you to people who have gone from being victims of divorce, to leading victorious lives while standing for their marriages! Real people with real needs. People who live one day at a time, trusting God as their Source, not their mates.
Their stories in Covenant Comments have been shared to inspire and motivate you to have faith and trust in God and to stand strong on His Word. He is no respecter of persons and what He does for others, He will do for you.
Then there are the testimonies of healed marriages! Covenant Comments brings hope to so many who feel they are all alone, with no one who understands what they are doing. These testimonies bring hope and encouragement when standers are in despair and about to give up.
While important, publishing the newsletter is only part of what we do as a ministry. We’re here to encourage you and take your prayer requests, whether by phone, through letters or email. We develop and print curriculum for Covenant Groups around the world and train leaders for the groups. We hold meetings and retreats and have an International Conference each July. We send a quarterly newsletter to our Covenant Couples with healed marriages. Orders for our products are filled weekly. We write and publish books and record CD’s to give hope and encouragement and we also offer products by other ministries who share our vision for marriage. YOUR SUPPORT MAKES ALL THIS POSSIBLE!
