How your life and future will change just by learning 
how to help women through a marriage crisis!

None of our ministers felt adequate to begin to encourage and guide anyone when they first signed up. Yet did you know that ministering is simply about caring about someone else—just ONE woman!

Ministering is SIMPLY sharing what God has done in your life.

Ministering is sharing with others about HIS ability and desire to take the most hopeless of life's situations and turn them around for good—because we've seen Him do it in our own lives—and you will begin to see it in your life too once you focus on helping others!!

Whether He's brought you through health issues, financial struggles, or even marriage crises of your own—once you've experienced Him moving in your own life, and KNOW there is no way around your difficulties, you must go through difficulties—then you can help someone else through similar or any difficulties. Giving encouragement and the resources our ministry provides for free!

Ministering is simply helping just ONE woman at a time, encouraging her, and pointing her to the One who has all the comfort she needs and all the answers—like Anna (pictured left with Erin) in Buffalo, New York!Yes, even though it "sounds" so simple, you may still feel inadequate and ill-prepared. At this point, you are. That's why we offer our FREE courses. These online courses were designed to teach anyone how to help a woman going through a marriage crisis. This knowledge will allow you to gain the confidence you need, to provide you the tools we use, we've set up a very simple 6 Month Course of study, followed by a short internship. And at the end, you will be ready to have your own Online Ministry.

More importantly, we will help you find your unique and special calling, and, as we said, we will help you set up your own online ministry, providing you with our resources (eBooks, eCourses and eVideos) that will allow you to have an ongoing and increasing income the more women you help.

• It begins by simply going through the same Restoration Journey we created for women in crisis—but YOU will go through it with the mindset and heart to help OTHER women!

REMEMBER, focusing on OTHERS is the KEY to unlock AND get in the position for GOD to RESTORE YOUR Life—just as you will read in so many testimonies that we use to teach you. Again, whether you need God to RESTORE your health, your finances or any relationship that's struggling—this six-month course will show you how.

Simply "believing" something is going to happen is usually NOT enough to unlock a miracle—helping OTHERS is what always causes a BREAKTHROUGH!

Even in the very midst of having breast cancer, chemo, losing her hair and abandoned with six children to care for—by focusing on helping OTHER women, God gave one of our ministers, Chelle, her life back and gave her life a purpose. And what He's done for others, we promise He will do the same for you!!!

Whether you are married, separated, divorced or you've never been married—learning how to share with others what God has done for you is ministering to women—giving them HOPE and sharing the truth from His word.

“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

Philippians 2:3 tells us, “...with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of OTHERS.”

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends”—John 15:13

Hi, we're the ministers from Encouraging Women Ministries. We are a group of women who found RMI "Restore Ministries International" when each of us was abandoned or cheated on by our husbands. Through the books and videos of Erin Thiele, who is an author, motivational speaker, founder of Restore Ministries International, we went on to be trained by Erin through her online university, RMIOU.

Erin Thiele is the mother of seven children, her youngest three she calls her "restoration babies" since her marriage was restored in 1991.

God has blessed each of us to be trained, and He has seen fit to use all of us to continue helping to encourage and motivate hundreds of women (and men) through Erin's books that we use on our website and use to train ministers.

Erin's first books began with a distinctive style the Lord used to teach her—using the Bible ALONE to minister to the brokenhearted, each of us. Her passion led to our passion, which is to encourage ALL women, young & old, rich or poor, in every country and in many languages to seek the Lord in an intimate and passionate way to allow HIM to restore your life just as He has restored Erin's and our lives too!

We would love to share with you how you, too, can overcome every crisis through these means Erin taught us. Erin's testimony and ministry began when her husband left her for another woman and divorced her.

What we want to share with you is that in the midst of losing her life, she FOUND it—she became the Lord’s Bride. And the same happened to each of us. Our hope that through our ministry, our books and videos and now FREE online courses, you too will find your life in HIM. We know that He LONGS to have you as His bride just as much as He longed for Erin and each of us!

We hope you will join us and trust God as together we help you build a unique and encouraging ministry of your own!

Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. (Isaiah 40:1)

Store up comfort. This was the prophet Isaiah’s mission. The world is full of hurting and comfortless hearts. But before you will be competent for this lofty ministry, you must be trained. And your training is extremely costly, for to make it complete, you too must endure the same afflictions that are wringing countless hearts of tears and blood. Consequently, your own life becomes the hospital ward where you are taught the divine art of comfort. You will be wounded so that in the binding up of your wounds by the Great Physician, you may learn how to render first aid to the wounded everywhere. Do you wonder why you are having to experience some great sorrow? Over the next ten years you will find many others afflicted in the same way. You will tell them how you suffered and were comforted. As the story unfolds, God will apply the anesthetic He once used on you to them. Then in the eager look followed by the gleam of hope that chases the shadow of despair from the soul, you will know why you were afflicted. And you will bless God for the discipline that filled your life with such a treasure of experience and helpfulness. Selected

God comforts us not to make us comfortable but to make us comforters. John Henry Jowett

They tell me I must bruise
The rose’s leaf,
Ere I can keep and use
Its fragrance brief.

They tell me I must break
The skylark’s heart,
Ere her cage song will make
The silence start.

They tell me love must bleed,
And friendship weep,
Ere in my deepest need
I touch that deep.

Must it be always so
With precious things?
Must they be bruised and go
With beaten wings?

Ah, yes! by crushing days,
By caging nights, by scar
Of thorn and stony ways,
These blessings are!
