~ C.P.R. MARRIAGE RESTORATION TESTIMONIES
2006 has been the year of marriage restorations.
CPR has seen many already just in the month of January.
Many do not submit their testimonies, but CPR will
try to note them here as restored anyway, and post
the stories of ones who have time to write them and
submit. Many do not contact us and report their restorations.
We encourage all to please do so, as it builds up
the faith of brothers and sisters still in this battle.
We praise God for restored marriages!
*Rob and Robyn*
November 1979.That month is burned in my memory forever.Here
I was,a tall,lanky 14 year old boy playing junior
high basketball visiting an opposing school.I glanced
over at the other teams cheeleaders & there she
was.The most beautiful girl I'd ever seen & I
knew at that moment she would one day be my wife.Her
name was Robin & before I knew it we were dating.We
dated off & on for years until we finally went
our separate ways.I married someone else & had
3 sons of my own.She married a very abusive man &
had a son as well.
10 years had passed & we were both divorced when
by chance she & a mutaul friend stopped by to
see me at my office out of the blue.There she stood
in front of me looking as astonishing as ever &
there I was,that 14 year old goofball(only with less
hair) all over again.Needless to say,things took off
& we married a year later.A blended family with
4 boys & later we added a son of our own.There
we were the perfect family.5 sons,2 dogs & a parrot.
Well, times had changed.My work situation became increasingly
difficult,child support payments,angry ex-spouses....you
name it,it happened.Satan had taken control of our
marriage & we were too blind to see.Sure,we went
to church & were Christians but it became more
of a social club.We had a large group of Christian
friends but my depression
was sprialing out of control.
Robin started spending all of her time with them &
left me alone to wallow in my pity.This just angered
me more & I had reached the point of suicide.Not
just once but 3 attempts.If she didn't love me anymore....I
didn't want to live.Finally,one night I snapped &
grabbed her by the throat & when I realized what
I was doing,I just dropped to the floor.It was over.
I pushed her as far as she could go.
I started counseling & some pretty intense therapy
while Robin just became more & more distant.We
slept in separate rooms & all of her time was
spent with our church friends.She basically hated
me now.She felt I treated her son unfairly & was
holding a ton of resentment.
Then everything went wrong.August 20th 2003.The worst
day of my life.My stepson Blaine went to the hospital
with a stomach ache.He never came home.The doctors
gave him the wrong medicine & now he was dead.15
years old, just got his drivers license and now he's
gone.Robin turned to everyone but me during that time
& a few days later I came home from work &
she was gone.Empty drawers,empty closet & empty
She found an apartment,got a job & started living
on her own....or so I thought.For the next 8 months
she had an affair with our youth pastor.Here I was,raising
our son alone battling depression & getting a
divorce.The very next day I lost my job.Then my car,house
& eventaully my dignity.
The moment she left I dropped to my knees & prayed
to God & vowed to live my life for Him.I was a
"Christian" but I was only playing the part.It
was time for me live it.That very night I started
praying,sometimes for hours at a time,for not just
my marriage but Robin's salvation.I would give it
to God & then take it back a million times.I struggled
so much. I wanted to quit but God said No!!!!! Everyone
told me how stupid I was & that she'd never be
back.Just give up & find someone else.She told
me she hated me & she never loved me but deep
inside I knew Satan was pulling her strings.I knew
what a loving,caring & thoughtful person she was.God
had shown me that many times.She was just a lost sheep
We had a son together & he deserved his family
& I was not about to stop praying or believing.Then
things changed.I read the Bible & studied His
word.Jacob & I kept going to church & doing
thing right.I kept my Christian rock band together.I
felt a change in me. I felt new.God blessed me with
a new house, job & car.I had to keep praying incessantly.Praying
for Robin's soul & our marriage & yes even
for the "Other Man".
The day came.May 1st 2004.Robin was home but all was
not well.She kept calling him & telling me she
didn't want to be there.She was only here for Jacob
& I'd never be with her again.But, here I was
that 14 year old stubborn boy that wouldn't take no
for an answer.So, I went to God continually day after
day.Many times a day & things slowly changed.She
stopped all communication with him.Still, we were
in separate rooms & things were difficult but
I had my Lord to lean on.He was my strength, my rock,
my heart & soul.The prayers kept coming &
Robin & I became closer each day until finally
Jan.31st, 2005 we became a "couple" again.
She tells me she loves me everyday & we share
soo much with each other & our son.She is the
biggest blessing God has ever given me & I will
spend the rest of my life trying to repay Him for
the beautiful gift I've gotten back.People say to
me "How strong you are Rob","I admire
you so much" & I just look at them &
smile & say "It wasn't me.I had nothing to
do with this.It was all God.All I did was pray &
Now,here I sit with my family intact,a wife that has
found God again,a house, job,car & I'm totally
depression free with no medication for over a year.So
who wants question God's miracles now? Be sincere
in your faith,give it to God,never give up & always,always
In Christian love,
*Kristie and Kevin*
After five years of attack on our marriage, my husband
pulling away from the Lord and myself, many separation
events throughout those years, our marriage became
fully restored on January 13th, 2006. We had been
a restoration in progress since April of 2004, but
the other women still existed in the picture and it
was a continued battle. On January 13th, my husband
totally broke down, began fighting for me and our
marriage, gave his life back to the Lord, and has
been home ever since, the ow completely gone from
our lives. We are in love again like we first were
14 years ago. My testimony is long and I will be sharing
it fully when I have time to write it. Just know that
God is faithful and He will heal your marriage completely.
God bless all of you!

Dear Kristie: I have a miracle report about my marriage
restoration. My wife came up to me on new years day
at church and apologized to me and said that we will
not be getting divorced, Amen Since then we have gone
out 4 times and we have a love for each other like
we first met, Amen. Keep praying for me to return
to the house and blessings on our marriage.
We are going to church together and praying everyday,
God Bless You, Thank you for your prayers,
*Christy and Aaron*
Christy and Aaron are a young married couple with
two beautiful children that CPR has been praying for
the past year. Christy does not have a computer, but
I met her locally right after her husband left her
a year ago. Christy has several miracle testimonies.
During this time of separation, Christy went to have
a minor outpatient surgerie for her gall bladder.
While under anesthesia, Christy coded (died on the
table) from an allergic reaction to a drug administered
during surgerie. Christy came out of the surgerie
in ICU on a ventilator, not breathing on her own.
Over the course of the next day or so, she developed
blood clots in her arms and legs that were blocking
blood flow. They had to take her back into surgerie
and were to amputate her arms and legs in order to
save her life. Her family called me in to pray for
her at bedside, as well as many prayed here on CPR.
When they got Christy into the surgerie, they found
that the blood clots had all disappeared and no surgerie
was performed. Within hours Christy was breathing
on her own again and removed from the vent. Satan
then struck again, Christy coming down with a staph
infection throughout her body. Again we prayed, and
the staph cleared up. Christy and Aaron were restored
recently in the month of January 2006, and Aaron is
now at home with her and the children and working
for my husband in construction (as I convinced him
to give Aaron a job to help them out :-). All is well
and they once again are a happy family. All glory
and honor to God!
*Theresa and Larry*
Our most recent and most exciting restoration.
Theresa is one of CPRs leaders and one of my personal
nightly prayer partners. This restoration by all appearances
was one of our most impossible situations. I have
prayed daily with Theresa for over a year now, and
we had steadily watched things go from bad to worse
in her marriage. Her husband was one of the most vindictive
and mean spouses we had ever encountered on CPR. A
vicious divorce action has been in progress for over
a year and Theresa had suffered many blows in all
areas of her life throughout the time I have known
her and prayed with her. On February 1st, Theresa
called me crying and excited, to announce that she
had a breakthrough, the first one in this ordeal I
would like to mention. Her husband had called her
and stated that he had been decieved and would she
come speak with him. I am happy to report that two
hours later she called again and stated that they
were restored. Theresa went home that day and Larry
gave his life back to God, a broken man very repentant
for all he had done to her. The ow is completely out.
Larry is a testimony much like Bob Steinkamp, where
things were happening to him out there for the prior
couple of weeks, winding up with a Damacus Road experience
of heart attack symptoms and God speaking clearly
to him that He would spare him this time, but not
the next time. Larry vows to be the Godly husband
to Theresa that God intends him to be. Theresa is
so much more to tell, but we will let Theresa give
her testimony in full when she has time to do so.
We praise God for this miracle Lazarus restoration.
God is no respecter of persons, so you may be next,
hang in there with God for He cannot fail you or your
marriage! Praise God!
