just a little about RMI founder

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


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 four more children (when they married one of my sons or daughter), and the seventh grandchild due October 2011.


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