It provided scripture backed steps to correct myself and steps on how to stand for the restoration of my marriage. Not to handle things in the flesh and the quizzes helped re affirm what was read.

The A Wise Man helped me to deal with daily issues of character, choices and direction. The ground floor up book for how to be and live like the man God designed and destined us to be.

My wife wants a divorce because she feels verbally and emotionally abused. I have been unsure how this happened. The Chapter on Thrusts of a Sword has brought me to my knees and broken my will. I want only His will now... I never intended to hurt the person I love so much.

It was by the grace of God I that came to your site. For this I give praise to God who wants us to see well.
These are the best books I've found based on truthful scriptures, simple to understand and well formulated to help everyone as we each suffer from the enemy's attack on our lives.
The books changed my entire being; I learned to go to Him, and I learned to practice unconditional love. Now I know the factors and reasons that are the basis of many problems in my home. And throughout it makes it clear the key is that we always need to put God first.
My life was a person who thought that all was well in my home while my wife suffered emotionally, and I did not understand how blind I was to this. Instead of leading my family, I was giving space for evil to reign— allowing my wife to feel humiliated in front of many people, but it all happened unconsciously or complete ignorance on my part.
I had never known what an injured woman will do to find what she needs. The day wife told me that there was another man, I was devastated. And then I sought the face of the Lord and in searching I came to this site that has shown me how to follow the Lord God going the long but sure way to find peace!!
Thank You my God for the grace and mercy You have given me, and forgiving me of my sins. Praise be given to Your name by allowing ministries like this one that uses technology so desperate people like me can be redeemed— their sheep—and save marriages that the devil has destroyed. Many thanks to this team that serves the Lord with as much zeal and dedication that can produce what was offered to me.

I had been standing on Gods promises for 2 years and God had been slowly changing me. It has encouraged me that the steps I had taken in the early days to stand back, not stand in the way, take full responsibility for the marriage (hate the word - failure) are backed up by what i have read. This does not mean that in any way i can be proud of this. But can only point to Gods grace and somehow my willingness to see his steps.
It is only now after reading through the 3 books (Restore Your Marriage, A Wise Man and Word of Their Testimony) and by getting into the word that i am slowly beginning to understand the steps needed.
I had taken the position of head of the house but ruled by angry words and direct statements but failed badly because i failed to rely on God.
I was guilty of Adultery through pornography as though i had committed it with a physical woman my mind was a skip
Lord, you have in the last 2 years made a new man of me already, you have taken an axe to my life and carved away huge sections of puss filled rubbish, this has often left me open and roar but you have been faithfull and have drawn me step by step closer to you, until here i sit typing this love letter to you.
You have never failed me, it is i that have failed you, thank you for showing me / making me humble through these experiences and making me like clay in your hands i pray that i will continue to experience and willingly cooperate in the changes you are making in my life.
All things (can) work together for good to those who love God and are called according to His purpose.” Rom. 8:28.
“I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” Hebr. 13:5.
God has not left your side: “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.” Psalm 23:4.
“a man shall leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife and the two shall become one flesh. Consequently, they are no longer two but one flesh. What God has joined together let no man separate.” Matt. 19:5
When we were married Lord you brought us together as one flesh and one in Spirit being joined in a core of 3 with you, this is just as true today as it was 27 years ago when we we married, Lord let no man separate what you have joined together.
“And whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matt. 23:12, Luke 14:11, Luke 18:14.
Lord over the last 2 years you have brought about the demise of a strong willed proud man and brought him to a place of humility and a willingness to learn and lean on you and for that i am eternally greatful.
“And I say to you, that every careless word that men shall speak, they shall render account for it in the day of judgment.” Matt. 12:36.
Lord when my wife left one of her complaints and to be fair she had stated it more than once in the previous months / years (though i had been too proud and deaf to hear), was that my words had been truely damaging to her. Lord i am greatfull that you showed me clearly the error of my ways.

What this book has done for me. I have learned that I have been playing victim in all of this when I am a major cause of it. I should be the spiritual head of my family and I have not been. I have learned that I need to forgive my wife and move on. I am not a victim. I do not need to wait for my wife. I need to get closer to you God. I need you more than anything. I need to go after my Sara for her soul. She needs an intimate relationship with you Lord. I pray that you will tug on her heart and you will place people in her path that will show her you. People that will show her that it is not about religion. People that will show her how to press in and learn more about you God.
I am going to work on being obedient to God in everything that I do. I am going to put him first in everything that I do.
God, My Lord and Savior. You are pretty awesome. I love you more than anything. I need to ask you to give me more wisdom with what I have read and how to apply it to my life and situation. I long to grow closer to you. I long to know you more and to love you more. I long to have you be more important to me than anything else. I long to have a close intimate relationship with you. I ask that you will draw me in and show me what I need to change. Help me to make those changes so that they are everlasting.

Seeing how God has done the impossible is always encouraging to me because my situation would be deemed impossible to most anyone and that includes my own wife.
God had revealed many of the same failings to me that I had in my own marriage. I didn't lead as I knew I should have and as a result I didn't protect my marriage.
Lord help me too become more and more humble. It is only by you that I am anything at all. Lead me in your ways and humble me every day.

“A Wise Man” is truly a classic piece of Biblical inspiration from His anointed – Erin. The insight and wisdom it clearly dispenses, coupled with the Restore Your Marriage book, and second only to the written Word of God, were the most incredibly eye-opening texts that I have ever read in my life. I am still amazed at how penetrating the information is, and how much it helped to begin the transformation process in me. I will never be the same again, and hallelujah for that!

“Praise God, I came back to the Lord because my wife told me she wanted a divorce. God led me to Restore Ministries International and to buy the "Wise Man" book. As I worked my way through it, I could see how foolish I had been and how far short of God's ideal for me I had fallen. I read it avidly and I attribute my rapid spiritual growth to it. As I read I could see what I had done wrong and, more importantly, what I needed to do to put it right. Every chapter is full of scriptures supporting the main theme, which I read aloud and let His precious Word put me right. I recommend this to everybody. Gentlemen, God will restore your marriage for you if you allow Him to turn you into the man of God He wants you to be. He loves you so much He doesn't just want you to have your wife back, He wants to change you so when she comes back you can be the Godly husband He wants you to be and she needs you to be. This book will allow you to do that. There is only one other book that I would recommend more, and that is the Holy Bible. What this book does is put all the relevant Scripture in one easily accessible place.

This book helped me understand how I drop the ball as the leader in my house. I realize that I haven't been the Godly man that my wife and family needs.
