Then one day he whispered, “We must help others going through this. We must let God bring good from our story.” And I knew. I knew we had finally turned a corner in the long journey of healing. He wanted to lead the way for us to find purpose in our pain. And something about that honest humility gave my heart a soft place to land. Dear hurting one, we see you. We hear you. We read your comments. You are not invisible to us. Both... those who feel abandoned. And those who are trying to figure out restoration. We know the deep nuances of your pain. And as God leads, we are committed to inviting you in to what we’ve learned, what we know, and how to find the help you need to move forward. Make no mistake the light dancing in our eyes is not just a joy for us. It’s a wildfire, a battle cry, a high calling to help you...fueling something to come.

Art and I are very committed in 2019 to serving people together. And to showing the enemy HE MESSED WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE THIS TIME! The devastation we walked through has made us more determined than ever to recognize the massive need to help those in the fight of their lives to cling to Biblical Truth and hope. One way we are doing this is to support all the many upcoming initiatives @proverbs31ministries to help hurting marriages. And to help those trying to heal from relationships that weren’t able to be restored. We deeply and personally understand how much pain there is and we feel compelled to do what we can. So much so we are making a special year end donation from our family to @proverbs31ministries. I can’t think of a better investment and wanted to invite you to join us. Will you consider giving a gift of any amount to @proverbs31ministries this weekend? Maybe it’s a few dollars from a skipped coffee or a larger gift from a blessing God just gave you. Whatever it is, this is a great place to give a year end donation. Every dollar given will go directly to ministry work and make a big difference! To give, go to Proverbs31.org or click the link in my profile.

Comments - Restoration - Nuances - Pain - God

“Dear hurting one, we see you,” she continued. “We hear you. We read your comments. You are not invisible to us. Both... those who feel abandoned. And those who are trying to figure out restoration. We know the deep nuances of your pain. And as God leads, we are committed to inviting you into what we’ve learned, what we know, and how to find the help you need to move forward.”

“Make no mistake the light dancing in our eyes is not just a joy for us,” she added. “It’s a wildfire, a battle cry, a high calling to help you...fueling something to come.”

TerKeurst - Separation - June - Divorce - Kind

TerKeurst first announced her separation in June 2017 and said she would be pursuing a divorce following “the worst kind of betrayal.” Though she tried to save her marriage for years, she said her husband continued to abuse substances, be unfaithful and refused to be honest.
