Our partners tithe and/or give a monthly offering in order to spiritually feed those who are starving, many are dying spiritually. The majority of ALL the tithes and offerings go to our SFP “Spiritual Feeding Program” that is similar to soup kitchens and feeding programs that are vital to saving people who are dying from physical hunger.
We believe almost everyone today is spiritually starving and dying, and that only HIS truth will feed their souls, heal their hurts, and strengthen these poor souls. But not only just to strengthen themselves, but to have the spiritual strength and wisdom to minister to others who are spiritually starving around them, everyday—many in their own homes.
Our SFP “Spiritual Feeding Program” —is supplying DAILY spiritual nourishment through one of our many blogs, newsletters, and our FREE online courses.
By becoming a partner, you will be supplying DAILY spiritual nourishment through one of our many blogs, newsletters, FREE online courses, and FREE eBooks, eVideos, given to each and every woman who wants to help Encourage other women and also to any woman who is hurting and has filled out our FREE Marriage Evaluation.
In addition, our hope is to encourage women to become Ministers, who unlike counselors, learn to spiritually encourage women as they travel along their Restoration Journeys. Whether their journey is starting due to a crisis in their marriage, drug and/or alcohol addiction, emotional healing during a crisis in health issues, and even helping women through a financial crisis.
Take a moment to read about what He’s brought Mercy in South Africa through, all because of our partners, who gave their tithes and offerings. And how Mercy is now one of our translators!
Take a moment to read how He’s also helped other women to be healed from
- Healing from Addictions!
- Healed from Emotional Pain & Suffering
- Healed from Physical Pain & Suffering
Your tithe and/or offering, each month, heals the brokenhearted and sets the captives free!!
Erin Thiele wrote many books with her distinctive style of using the Scriptures to minister to the brokenhearted and the spiritual captives. “He sent His Word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20), which is the foundation for Encouraging Women and for us encouraging every woman to become Ministers, sharing Hope. Yet, it’s the testimonies of all the RESTORED marriages and RESTORED lives that are what proves in His ability to do the impossible!
Where will you Sow Your Financial Seeds?
As a partner, you will be sowing your seed into “good ground.”
“And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty”— Matthew 13:18
“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” —Matthew 6:21
And not only will you be given a front seat to ongoing miracles—what you invested and have sown into the lives of other women (and men) around the world—you will also be safe from the devourer, once you are no longer (unknowingly) stealing from God.
Why do we talk about tithes and offerings rather than asking for DONATIONS like every other ministry?
First, because we don’t “need” your money, nor does God need it.
“And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”— Philippians. 4:19.
Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it...” In other words, everything we have belongs to God.
“‘The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine,’ declares the Lord Almighty” —Haggai 2:8
So, we don’t need your money, nor does God, which is why we never ask for donations. We never set up fundraisers. We also never ask for building funds, because everyone works and learns from home—everywhere— around the world!
Workers@Home is not just one of our books but a strongly held belief.
Instead of donations, we provide a means for women to partner with us, in order to help you commit to tithing 10% and/or giving your 10% offering for YOUR sakes as it says in these verses:
Malachi 3:8–10 tells us, “Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing Me! But you say, ‘How have we robbed Thee?’ In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing Me, the whole nation of you!”
“’You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away. Why?” declares the LORD of hosts, 'Because of My house which lies desolate, while each of you runs to his own house.’”
And He also says not tithing gives the devourer permission to steal and take what is rightfully his unless we tithe to our STOREHOUSE, which means where we and others are spiritually fed.
Malachi 3:10–11—“‘Bring the whole tithe into the STOREHOUSE, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. THEN I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it may not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
Contemporary English Version—
“I am the Lord All-Powerful, and I challenge you to put me to the test. Bring the entire ten percent into the storehouse, so there will be food in my house. Then I will open the windows of heaven and flood you with blessing after blessing.”
LASTLY, one reason we aren’t suffering from the devourer is due to the fact that each of our ministers is asked to tithe themselves, personally, AND because our Ministry also TITHES—GIVING to other ministries. Here is where we post WHERE We Tithe 10% of your tithe.
And if that’s not enough to encourage you to become a partner, you will begin to experience blessings flowing in your own life!
In Luke 6:38, Jesus explained, “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
Remember Mercy? Mercy submitted a praise report, “Won 3 Weeks in the UK!", which also proves this principle to be true. As a tither, she was blessed with a free spa vacation in London, from South Africa. A trip her daughter won because blessings overflow onto and into the lives of our loved ones.

But more than what we can give you— we hope that as you GIVE you are blessed with a deeply growing passion for wanting even more of the Lord as your Heavenly Husband and the encouragement to help encourage other women.
"I have found that much of my passion for the Lord as my Heavenly Husband, and why I am lovesick stems from being around women who also share a PASSION for the Lord and for ministering with Him. This is why our partners are extremely important and special! By reading ongoing testimonies from women who share how they’ve been emotionally, spiritually (and often physically) healed and made whole again—seeing their love for the Lord who has become everything to them, finding HIS Love for the first time in their lives, realizing He is their Heavenly Husband—is why I have an ongoing passion for my Beloved and am passionate about what He is passionate about.
What I hope to offer you as a PARTNER is more encouragement each and every time you GIVE, which is why we have a monthly newsletter blog just for our partners! My hope is this will serve to excite and multiply your intimacy with your Beloved as we work TOGETHER, side by side, to minister to women around the world!"
THANK YOU, LORD!

Encouraging Women was founded and grew on the foundation of this Biblical principle:
"GIVE, and it will be GIVEN to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over.
For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return"
— Luke 6:38
Women who come here to GET, rather than to GIVE, don't fully grow into what He wants for each and every person.
Partners are different, they come to get fed, in order to FEED others —
A PARTNER is someone who comes to Encouraging Women not just to receive but to GIVE — to sow into the lives of OTHER women.
When Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him, He told Him in John 21:17, "Then feed my sheep."
"You look for much, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away... Why?" declares the LORD of hosts, "Because of My house which lies DESOLATE, while each of you runs to his own house." —Haggai 1:9
Encouraging Women is all about GIVING to OTHERS!
Each and every one of our PARTNERS is financially blessed because they know the secret of tithing. And once they begin to tithe, many of them also begin to go beyond and learn the real meaning of having the "windows of heaven" opened up over their lives!
“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows’”
Do you need to find a place where you can sow your financial seed and watch it multiply?
SOW GOOD SEED into GOOD SOIL!!!
"Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully" —2 Corinthians 9:6
Becoming a partner of Encouraging Women means that you clearly have the desire to dig DEEPER into your relationship with the Lord—to increase your intimacy with Him as your Heavenly Husband.
It means that you are ready to focus on sowing good seed into your own life! And rather than pursuing restoration or anything else in your life, you are trusting that as you pursue Him, He will give you the desires of your heart!
“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”
“The righteous will be rewarded with prosperity.”
“…without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”
Get Started or Follow Through by Donating your tithe and/or offering. Once you’ve donated twice, we will welcome you as a partner—and begin to reap the rewards.

“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be [spiritual] food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows. Then I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of the ground; nor will your vine in the field cast its grapes,” says the LORD of hosts. “All the nations will call you blessed, for you shall be a delightful land,” says the LORD of hosts.”—Malachi 3:10-12
The amount you give does NOT matter at all to us. What matters is that you do what God is calling you to do, which is to tithe or give an offering of 10% of your income.
A donation is not what we ask, because HE takes care of us. Instead, we want to encourage you to give so that you will be blessed and protected, which means, we want to encourage you to tithe 10% of your income so you have the assurance policy from the Lord that protects you from loss—covering EVERYTHING in your life.
Again, this is not a donation but is simply giving the 10% back to the Lord, by giving it to your storehouse— where you are spiritually fed.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are truly being spiritually fed by your church, be sure you tithe there and then you are free to give your offering to RMI. If you are being spiritually fed here more, then give your tithe to RMI and your offering to your church.
