Important Announcement

Dear Friends and Treasures Supporters,

In the spirit of honesty, openness and integrity, I think it is important that I share something that has been going on in my personal life with you. About a year and a half ago, my husband and I separated and are now going through a divorce.

From the beginning of this season of my life, I have enlisted the support, counsel and wisdom of my pastors, closest friends, personal mentors and even professional counselors.  Our marriage is ending primarily because my husband has decided he wants to pursue other relationships.

I believe in marriage and think that it is God’s best.  Divorce was never my “plan A”.  I have done everything that I know to do in order to allow room for restoration and reconciliation but at the end of the day, I can only take responsibility for my part.

I have been engaged in a season of actively pursuing God for direction and for my own personal healing. I have had to rely on God like never before and have consistently seen Him show up for me.  I have felt God’s presence, strength and guidance every step of this difficult season.

I know that I know that I know that God is still healer.  He is still redeemer.  He is my Rock and my Refuge and I stand on Him alone.  The vision of Treasures has been founded on the belief that God can and will bring purpose to even our greatest pain.  I know that this is just as true in this circumstance as it has been in every other circumstance I have surrendered to Him.

I am planted in a healthy church and have the full support and involvement of my pastors, Philip and Holly Wagner.  They, along with a handful of mentors and close friends, are providing me with all the counsel I need to navigate this season of my life.

With that said, what I ask of you is prayer.  In addition to praying for me personally, I ask that you continue to pray for Treasures. I truly see God’s strength made perfect in my weakness.  I have never felt more dependent on and yielded to God than I am today.  Even though this had been a difficult time for me – Treasure has continued to grow and God’s blessing is clear.  God leads from strength to strength and even in the midst of this season in my life, I see Him moving through this ministry like never before.  And I know that as He leads Treasures from strength to strength, He will do the same for me.

Thank you for your prayers and support.

Love, Harmony

    I am soo sorry. I, too, have a lot of divorces in my family background. My mother and father divorced when I was about 8 years old. My sister and I have both been married and divorced, and are also in our second marriages, struggling. My brother just recently got divorced. Wasn’t expecting that cuz they had a lot in common. I continually worry that my marriage has taken a lot of hits; it doesn’t help that my ex-husband was abusive to me and I’m still struggling with healing for that. I’m praying thru a marriage prayer book by Stormie O’Martian (sp?), praying for God to work in our lives and marriage. Only God can break the curse and turn things around, as long as both of us are willing…
    My heart goes out to you, and I am sorry you are having to deal with that. But indeed, keep seeking God, knowing His love for you, knowing His heart for you and your daughter (and your ex-husband), knowing that God still cherishes each of you and still has plans and purposes for your lives. Draw ever closer to Him and keep listening for His compassionate, tender, gentle whispers into your heart.
    Hugs and blessings

    Honestly, I’m just glad that you’re talking about it. I think that it is important to be honest, particularly for those of us that began listening to your husbands music as children or teens and learned of you through the song “the chase” and his interlude on Red Cloud’s first album.

    I’m most sad that it has come to this, particularly because I know the affects of divorce on children first hand [my mother was married 4 times]. I’m thankful to be married for almost a decade and pray the same for you.

  1. [...] as I prayed about it and considered what the next layer of healing would look like after the breakup of my marriage , I kept hearing God say, “Your pain is grief”.  Actually, it was about all I could hear Him [...]
