Prayer and Fasting in the New Year
by Deana Bell on December 30th, 2019
BY: Nancy Conlan (CK Group Leader, Intercessor) Since last Christmas, the Lord has been reminding me of one of His great gifts. Fasting. Years ago, at the beginning of the CK ministry, it was something that a lot of us learned more about in order to seek His will first, above all things. For years, I have still been practicing it on occasion, as best I could, but hadn’t heard it emphasized in a lo...  Read More

by Deana Bell on December 9th, 2019
BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage In 2008 when it was obvious that my marriage was falling apart, I knew I needed help from others. I began to tell the Lord that I needed Christian women in my life who could guide me on the right path. I needed some "Proverbs 31" women who could teach me the ways of being a wife, because I knew I was failing at it. I remember telling the Lord that I woul...  Read More

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...  Read More

by Deana Bell on October 14th, 2019
By: Carolyn Johnson, Director, Restored MarriageWe have had quite a vibrant hurricane season here in the US this past month. With all the major hurricanes that we've experienced, I began to notice something about the trees that survived. Something that can be applied to our situations as Covenant Keepers. Most of the surviving trees looked really beat up, but amazingly, they were still standing up...  Read More

Should I use Tough Love with my Spouse?
by Jackson Bell on August 22nd, 2019
One fairly common truth that experience has proven over and over is that “tough love” usually bears rotten fruit! The model for our behavior should always be Jesus. How does He treat us when we are rebellious, willful, stubborn, uncaring, inconsiderate, uncooperative and unfaithful? He responds by loving us unconditionally, and forgiving every sin. He is faithful to us even when we are unfaithful!...  Read More

The Door: Shut and Locked
by Jackson Bell on July 10th, 2019
It is quite normal for a Covenant Keeper to experience being with their spouse’s family for various reasons. Family members get sick and a hospital visit is the right thing to do. Children have birthdays and graduations from high school and college with a family gathering to celebrate an accomplishment. A family member dies and there is a funeral to attend. There will be reasons why you, your spou...  Read More
