by Deana Bell on July 31st, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage You've probably heard the phrase "stay in your lane," and until recently, I didn't even realize that that phrase does not usually contain the additional word "swim." It's a phrase my husband uses often, and he always says it with the word "swim."  "Swim lane" is a project management term for doing the job that you were asked to do.

by Deana Bell on July 9th, 2020
BY: Duke Rohe, Stander The good thing about a short memory is you forget who you are angry with.If you are slow to take offense, you probably won't become offended.Your offense is measured by your entitlement.To stay off the defensive, receive everything as input. When on the defensive, everything looks offensive.The opposite of love is not hate; it's offense. Offense grows a weight around the nec...  Read More

by Deana Bell on April 2nd, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Restored Marriage, Director I had just driven three and a half hours from my home in North Carolina to Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. It was my son's birthday. And we had never been apart on this special day. Nineteen years to be exact.

by Deana Bell on March 2nd, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage I was 26, newly married, and ready to do all kinds of adult things. One of the things on my list was taking better care of myself. And because I now had real insurance from a real job, I could afford to go to the dentist. This felt super adult-like until my new dentist took one look in my mouth and exclaimed, "You're running out of time!"I was horrified ...  Read More
Has The Lord Forgotten Me?
by Deana Bell on February 19th, 2020
BY: A Stander in Malaysia  In our church’s calendar, my husband's birthday falls on the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross. That has always been a source of consolation to me each year; that the Cross will triumph in my prodigal’s life. This year, when the day came, I asked my daughters to accompany me to church to pray for their father, especially on his birthday. Only my younger daughter was able...  Read More
The Day I Danced With Jesus
by Deana Bell on January 23rd, 2020
By: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage It always seems that God knows exactly when "much" turns into "too much" for me. And on this day, I was in over my head, spiritually. I have noticed the attacks getting more frequent and more intense for at least a year now. For me, waking up, praying, reading Scripture and repenting is a daily ritual. On this particular day, I had done all of the aforem...  Read More

A New Look at Your Real Enemy (Part 1)
by Deana Bell on January 7th, 2020
BY: Deana Bell, Director, Restored Marriage For most of my life I have attended churches that do not speak of or even acknowledge the existence of Satan. I never quite understood it, but yes, I too, spent years of my life ignoring something that should never be ignored. I don't know what the reasons are - possibly fear or ignorance - but I am certain that God wants us to know who our enemy is.Back...  Read More
