Quarantine: God's Special Time
by Deana Bell on March 31st, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Restored Marriage, Director and Marilyn Conrad (founder) Years and years ago a Covenant Keeper reached out to us from Australia and wrote to us about a new government reform to their tax system and how it was concerning to her. The reform was called the "GST,” (Goods and Services Tax). This Covenant Keeper was already struggling to pay her bills and the proposed tax reform was thre...
Weariness in the Waiting?

We can certainly expect objections from the enemy in two specific areas if we are believing that our marriages will be healed.
Has The Lord Forgotten Me?
by Deana Bell on February 19th, 2020
BY: A Stander in Malaysia In our church’s calendar, my husband's birthday falls on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross. That has always been a source of consolation to me each year; that the Cross will triumph in my prodigal’s life. This year, when the day came, I asked my daughters to accompany me to church to pray for their father, especially on his birthday. Only my younger daughter was able...

The Day I Danced With Jesus
by Deana Bell on January 23rd, 2020
By: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage It always seems that God knows exactly when "much" turns into "too much" for me. And on this day, I was in over my head, spiritually. I have noticed the attacks getting more frequent and more intense for at least a year now. For me, waking up, praying, reading Scripture and repenting is a daily ritual. On this particular day, I had done all of the aforem...

By: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage On this very day, 8 years ago, my husband and I separated.Some years the day seems to come and go without me ever noticing and other years I have found myself in a struggle.The New Oxford American Dictionary defines "D-Day" (in addition to the WWII reference) as "the day on which an important operation is to begin or a change to take effect." I have neve...

(link to part 1)To get you up to speed…Our marriage had come under fierce attack involving my husband’s infidelity and my resulting emotional breakdown. At a crisis point, my husband had answered my emotional plea for help with a promise to do whatever it took to make our marriage whole a...
A New Look at Your Real Enemy (Part 1)
by Deana Bell on January 7th, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage For most of my life I have attended churches that do not speak of or even acknowledge the existence of Satan. I never quite understood it, but yes, I too, spent years of my life ignoring something that should never be ignored. I don't know what the reasons are - possibly fear or ignorance - but I am certain that God wants us to know who our enemy is.Back...

BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage He took my breath away! Quite literally.As I stood there in the kitchen, just hours before the turn of the decade, my breath was taken away. I was gasping, as tears were running down my cheeks, because of the word He just spoke to my heart."You will know me to the greatest depths this year."I tried to catch my breath and process what He had just said to ...
What's More Real to You?
by Deana Bell on November 13th, 2019
By: (ANONYMOUS)I was in tears. I recollected all the words I wish I hadn’t spoken, and all the words I wish I had. I hated myself for losing my composure, wishing I could hit a reset button and redo that whole conversation. Actually, I wanted to reset years’ worth of mistakes and hurts. I had just gotten off the phone with my husband, who had left our marriage a few weeks prior. We had argued abou...
