Dear Partners, our Beloved has heard our prayers and has allowed monumental changes within our ministry. The Encouraging Bookstore was recently under attack by the enemy but is now slowing starting to rebuild. By His grace, we have resumed work on books that were waiting to be published, but now we are excited to continue to spread His message of Love, Joy, Hope, and Restoration!
We thank you for your patience, prayers, and continued support during this time of healing and transition. And we trust that as long as our hearts are hidden in Him, that He will continue to allow this aspect of our ministry to flourish and reach His beautiful Brides who are longing for His message and experience His love.
Here are a few Praise Reports within my new NRP Ministry
As we are rebuilding this important ministry “it is written” is what Jesus said 3 times to the enemy, and have been called to do significant work for Him, the enemy has been attacking us on all fronts. Recently, a customer who is in the midst of a move did not receive the book order that she placed. Despite all of the delivery notifications that we received indicating that her order had been delivered to her front door, her book was nowhere. We lovingly sent her a second copy to her new address, at no additional cost to her, and was delighted to hear that just a few short days, when she was moved into her new place she had her paperback book in her hands. While we do not know what caused this, as we love to do—we simple claim double and trust that wherever the book may be, that it falls in the hands of someone who is longing to hear His Good News and hope for their marriage 🙂
We are also claiming double for another dear Bride who purchased a few books unbeknown to her EH. When he found out, he asked her to return the purchase and request a refund. We were so encouraged by her obedience, sacrifice, and commitment to follow His Word and the principles taught here, that we not only refunded her purchase but were delighted to gift her with more books for free so that she could be blessed and spiritually nourished by His Word 🙂
Here’s What’s New!
As we excitedly resumed our printing schedule, we just finished and are waiting for our first copy of By the Word of Their Testimony (Book 5): He will Give You the Desires of Your Heart. You can order a copy to mark and read how others, like you, made it through their Restoration Journey and experienced a RESTORED MARRIAGE. Partners, please refer to your July 8th newsletter for your partner discount on this and other books.
We already have begun working on By the Word of Their Testimony (Book 6) “Proclaim the Good News to Everyone”! Watch this Encourager blog to know when (Book 6) is released.
Please join us in giving thanks to our Beloved for allowing us to progress forward 🙂
We are so encouraged when we see ladies who purchase bulk orders of How God Can and Will Restore Your Marriage because it reminds us of how kindhearted and amazing each of our Brides is. When one of our Brides, makes a bulk purchase, we know that they have been encouraged by the words that they have read and are moved to actively sow these books into their communities with the hope that we can others can also benefit from His message of Restoration! And so often, these are the same women who submit Restored Marriage Testimonies, like two brides: Constanza “God is Much More than our Pain” that posts in August, and also Ariana whose RMT will be posted on the blog in September “One Year ‘It is Over, Period.”
Sweet Beloved, this has been a long road. Thank You for allowing me to keep my focus on You. I pray, that You keep Your vision for NRP ever present in my mind. It is NOT about me! It is NOT about this ministry, it is about the love that YOU have for YOUR people. Thank You for choosing this broken vessel to do Your work. I pray that all who are hurting come to find You as their Healer, through YOUR love, so that you may give them the joy and peace that this world cannot offer.
Do you feel unworthy or incapable of being used by God to minister? Trust me He can use you by just letting Him know you are willing. 2 Timothy 2:20-22
Dear Sweet Bride, it says, “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14, NIV
You, my love, have been chosen. You have been created, prepared and ordained for this very moment. Every tear shed, every obstacle encountered, every heartbreak endured, has given you a story and a testimony that He hopes that you will share with other hurting women. Just one woman at a time. Ministering is not only about standing in front of large crowds and it’s not discussing the philosophical structure of scripture. Instead, ministering is simply allowing yourself to be available to Him, at time and moment that He chooses, to simply share with whomever He places in your path, the beauty, peace, rest, and love that You have found in Him. No one can tell it like you can, no one can articulate it in the manner that you can, that is why He chose you! I pray that you make yourself available to Him, so that another Bride may be found and blessed 🙂
“For no word from God will ever fail.” Luke 1:37
