I will send it to my son and his girlfriend.”   USA AZ: “I wanted to sow this special gift as a seed for the restoration of multiple marriages.

Endurance

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.

Recently I have been writing on topics such as perseverance, opposition and vigilance. My thoughts this time have turned to endurance. According to one dictionary the definition of endurance is “the fact or power of enduring an unpleasant or difficult process or situation without giving way.” As I read that I was reminded of my days of U S Marine Corps boot camp and the physical and mental endurance it took to survive a few weeks of that program. The Merriam Webster dictionary definition of endurance is “the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; especially: the ability to sustain a […]

Prayer and Fasting

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • April 9, 2018

A Word from Nancy Since last Christmas the Lord has been reminding me of a great gift He had given us at the beginning of the CKI ministry years ago. I had been aware of it and still practicing it, as best I could, but hadn’t heard it mentioned in a long time. It’s fasting – and I do it every Wednesday. I remember years ago when my husband left, I couldn’t eat. Many of you can attest to that. Once I began to heal I continued to fast, in spite of three children and all their needs, working, running […]

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, […]

Beauty for Ashes

I recently corresponded with a covenant keeper who wrote: “I receive your newsletter/website postings each week. I was greatly touched by your testimony in Craig Hill’s book, Help My Spouse Wants Out, but never expected to be one of those standing for my marriage. The last two years have been difficult but I knew in my heart that standing for the covenant I made was the only way. God is changing my husband’s heart and he is opening up. I just wanted to thank you because these articles have spoken to my heart and ministered to very specific things that […]

I recently read a transcript of a radio broadcast from John Piper, founder and teacher of desiringGod.com. This transcript should pull on the heart-strings of every Covenant Keeper and keep one on the straight and narrow path of keeping covenant.

A Stander, by His Amazing Grace

  • January 8, 2018

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 […]

His Love

Can you imagine? The magnitude of love that the Father had for His children is overwhelming when you try to wrap your mind around it. His son – His only son would have to be sacrificed in order to restore relationship with His beloved children, the Jewish Nation. But relationship is important to the Father. He wanted His children to realize that this babe in the manger was His way of redeeming that relationship. He had sent them many signs of the appearing of this Child. But because they wanted an earthly kingdom they missed the signs. After all, how […]

John 10:27-30   My sheep know my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. My father, Who gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. I and my Father are one.   When we receive eternal life, we have the right to hear His voice.   If we listen to Him often enough, we will recognize His voice.   Surrender your will to His will. […]

2017 Fall Midwest Yellow Ribbon Day

  • By Covenant Keepers, Inc.
  • December 6, 2017

Our Midwest YRD was a small gathering but “From little acorns do mighty oaks grow!” We had a wonderful time of praise, fellowship, teaching (on “Ditches” by Marilyn Pennington), prayer and food. Marilyn taught us that there are two ditches that Covenant Keepers tend to fall into, one on either side of the road we walk while we are standing for our marriages. One is the ditch of “Panic” and the other is the ditch of “Complacency.” We want to avoid either of these ditches as we walk the walk of faith for our spouses and our families. We want […]
