Rejoice Marriage Ministries, Inc.
We welcome you Rejoice Marriage Ministries, Inc, a nonprofit organization based in Pompano Beach, Florida and encouraging men and women in troubled and broken marriages around the world. Our only message is that God heals hurting marriages.
You can read and hear more of our story, but we were divorced after 19 years of marriage, and with three children. Two years later, in 1987, God put our marriage and family back together again. We were remarried for an additional 23 years before the Lord took Bob to his heavenly home in 2010.
In addition to the 20 books Bob and I have written, and many hours of audio Bible study that I have recorded, there are hundreds of pages of free material on the Rejoice Marriage Ministries website. There is also "Charlyne Cares," a free daily email message of encouragement you can subscribe to, as well as a weekly men's email devotional. We invite you to use our material on our web site to find the help for your marriage situation you have been seeking.
With a skyrocketing divorce rate, and people advising abandoned and hurting spouses to, "Get on with your life," our goal is to introduce you to what God can do for a broken or dead marriage, even when only one spouse takes a stand for marriage restoration, instead of being resigned to divorce.
It is our prayer that God will lead you to find help for your hurting soul through this material.
