This blog endeavors to generate hope and healing in the midst of broken, hurting marriages.
EssJee is one of the most determined standers I have had the opportunity to minister to during the beginning of his crisis. There is no doubt that the Lord has His hand on this man.The ministry that the Lord has given him is helping so many people to understand that even if you do have marriage problems, you don’t just give up, walk out the door, sign a few papers, and it’s over. God's plan for marriage is until DEATH do you part. Not any time before. EssJee and I have been called and chosen for this ministry. He and I have a job to do to teach those that the Lord brings to us that we are to never give up on our spouse.
The job that we have is to continually encourage those who are hurting from the pain of a covenant husband or wife wanting to call it quits, separate, or even go so far as divorce. Standing for your marriage is something that the Lord is calling ALL married people to do. It doesn’t matter what country you live in, what your family, friends, co-workers, or even your church thinks about what you are doing. -Stacey Hayes

For years as a stander, I've often heard that we need to let go, and so many of us do not know what that means, here is the meaning. Quit focusing on your spouse. Quit looking at what your spouse is doing, quit being anxious, turn your WHOLE FOCUS on God. Nothing less than everything. Come to a complete point of contentment in your stand. If you haven't, if you're still anxious and doubting or wondering if God will really restore your marriage, then you haven't let go. LET GO and LET GOD mo…
want to know the secret to a restored marriage? I have been blessed to witness
many restored and resurrected marriages. It is almost my
5th year in marriage ministry and I'm going to share with you the
big mystery and secret I have discovered over the years. This mystery was
hidden for thousands and thousands of years. This secret or mystery to marriage
restoration has been hidden for ages, but those who find it have restored and
resurrected marriages. Not only do they have new life beating in them, their
old lives and pasts have been wiped away and everything they now have is brand
you say is the secret to a restored marriage after divorce? I hear some of you
say: “prayer, fasting, be like Jesus or try to copy Jesus Christ, forgiveness,
spells, pressuring the one you love, self-help books, follow these easy steps

not all of them. In most of those points it i…

1.Most authors have one very specific reason for writing a particular book. What was your reason for writing You Can Have A Happy Family: Steps to Enjoying Your Marriage and Children? About four or five years ago, God put the desire in my heart to write someday. Three years ago, while leading Bible Studies in my home, I came across a local publishing class. I felt the Lord strongly leading me to take the class. At the time, I fully expected to save all the…
