Why meet just weekly?
Because God knew they both needed to know how to not discuss any details, nor ask each other for guidance or encouragement. Instead, they met together to search the Bible together and share what He had shown to them during the week, which was what encouraged them both. And they found each other ONLY when Erin was ready to help OTHER women—that’s when the Lord had her look for and find Sue to help. Though Erin was weary herself, and why she asked the Lord to send her "someone" it was in giving what little faith she had left, to Sue, that Erin became invigorated and encouraged.
Fridays became like our "date night"—something to look forward to. And, we agreed on our second meeting that we would continue our "date nights" with our husbands when we were both restored.
So we are confident that as you continue along your course, and begin ASKING Him to show you someone YOU can encourage (not someone to encourage you) then we know you'll soon find your ePartner!
Many women write ASKING US for an ePartner but UNFORTUNATELY in the past when we have found someone an ePartners, it's usually too soon and we noticed that those ePartners, their marriages were not restored!
We learned that it is VERY dangerous when He doesn't help you find someone since He alone knows when you're ready to encourage someone else and not to rely on your ePartner rather than fully relying on the Lord for love and support and guidance—while trusting GOD to RESTORE Your Marriage!
Isaiah 30:18 "Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.

Question: I'd like an ePartner now to help with my Restoration Journey.
How can I apply for an ePartner?
The best ePartner to have is someone who lives close to you, in order to be able to meet and encourage each other. When Erin and Sue were the first ePartners and met together weekly, Sue had her marriage restored first, but both women had been traveling along their Restoration Journey alone for a long time (Sue for 5 years, Erin for about 18 months).
