Restore Ministries International was actually birthed at a restaurant in Pensacola, Florida in 1990 when two women, both abandoned by their husbands, met for the first time. One of the women was me, Erin Thiele, pictures above. as the verse says, what the enemy meant for evil, God meant for good... to save many people alive.

​That evening was the first glimpse of HOPE for me and for thousands of women (and men) I had never met before. It was the beginning of a journey that i did not choose, but was chosen for me. God chose me, and i believe, called me from my mother’s womb, to minister “for such a time as this” but it was in the valley of the shadow of death that i really heard and answered that call.

​Through a real “nobody” a true FOOL who continues to “confound the wise,” the Lord has seen fit to birth many amazing children & ministries. I am the mother of seven children, plus five more children (when they married one of my sons or daughter), and eight grandchild.

And maybe even more astounding are the ministries that have been birthed.

Hello!

Genesis 50:20—

"You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives."

Family, writing, ministering to women around the world are my passions.

“Though traveling is the dream of most people, for me it was simply continuing to answer His call on my life. 

​“Even though I would rather remain at home, I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know women whose lives have been changed by reading my books and the ministry we offer online.”                                                                                                                                    ~Erin

Some memorable moments!
