With your life? Through thick and then? Til’ death do you part? Are you willing to run after the One who loves you as much as He does His own Son? Are you willing to live in all the fruits of the Spirit including long-suffering? Are you willing to receive all God has for you? To enjoy the blessing as well as overcome the testing? Are you willing to say ‘I do’ to His request in obedience of integrity? Are you willing to love God more and your feelings less? Are you willing to trust faith over facts? God over […]

The message below is from Dolores Porter. She and her husband Lee had a restored marriage. What a blessing for Lee to thank Dolores for standing and taking him back. Each time they attended conference you could see that Lee adored Dolores. We are also thankful that God restored their marriage and that they had many years of marriage to enjoy their life together. This is a picture of their vows spoken at a CKI conference in Tulsa. Hi Carolyn, Yes, Lee passed on January 30th. It still feels very “raw.” He passed in his sleep. Although I know he’s […]

The Scars You Receive As You Overcome Qualify You To Help Others!

What a revelation! I used to hide my life-scars in shame because they were so hideous. How about being divorced by my wife, the rejection I felt, how it hurt my wonderful wife and my children? What about the ugly pride I had struggling with self-esteem? What about a mind weakened by pornography? What about a lifestyle riddled with compromise? What about a little scared kid’s heart that wanted to run from reality? What about feelings I protected from pain so much, they became my idol? The scars these left behind are so repulsive to the world. POW! You know, […]

 CURACAO (A word of encouragement included with recent online donation) Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise! Praise Him, bless His Name. For Adonai is good.

This is my story: After many attempts to write my story I think it’s time to just put it out there. It feels a bit surreal as I sit here typing, thinking that as much faith I believed I had, I still doubted. I still think can this be real? Has this really happened? One month from this day that I write my story (November 17, 2017) my beloved and I will be re-marrying after being divorced for one and a half years! May 1, 2014 was the infamous day that rocked my world and changed my life as I […]

Marriage According To God’s Plan…

  • December 11, 2017

(In response to an article from a popular Christian magazine regarding the church’s role in divorce recovery). I have been divorced for five years after a beautiful 43 year marriage. My husband is a spirit-filled, talented Christian musician who was allured and enticed away by the enemy. I agree that this is definitely one of the most painful situations a person can experience. The first six months after my divorce I spent every moment possible seeking the Lord and His plan for my life. The Lord is incredibly faithful. I knew that I knew that I was to stand for the […]

Speaking Truth in Love

Ephesians 4:14-16 (ESV)  “So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.” In Matthew Henry’s commentary of the Bible, he says, […]

How to Survive the Hurricane of Divorce

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • October 2, 2017

With all the major hurricanes experienced in America this last month I noticed something about the surviving trees. They looked really beat up but they were still standing upright.  And even though most of their leaves had been stripped away by the wind they were still alive. These trees bear a resemblance to covenant keepers. So I did a little research on trees that survive hurricanes. Here are a few points: Well pruned trees survive hurricanes better than unpruned or poorly pruned trees. The pruning process is a painful process but necessary in our Christian life if we are to […]
