DM’s Sermon on Abandonment, Divorce, and Remarriage



On Sunday, August 16th, I was honored to deliver a sermon to Westwood Church (EFCA) in St. Cloud, MN. They were going through the book of I Corinthians at that time, and they asked me to tackle I Corinthians 7:10-16. That passage brings up questions regarding abandonment, divorce, and remarriage. I was privileged that Sunday to address those broad topics leading the congregation through both the Old and New Testament while ending up in I Corinthians 7:10-16.

The following is a link to the audio of my sermon (roughly 40 minutes in length):

  1. DM, I just listened to every second of your sermon! Preach it Brother! I was raised Catholic, but this sermon has got to be the VERY BEST when it comes to talking about divorce as it applies to a faithful spouse. I wrestled with my decision to divorce my husband because of his adultery. It was obvious he was not going to honor his marriage vows and he made that clear by his actions! I am now at peace with my decision thanks to your sermon. But more importantly, towards the end of your sermon you spoke about not being able to change an adulterous spouses mind. Not being able to save another person. This also gave me peace. Thank you so, so much for your insight into divorce. I really believe had I not found this blog and the opportunity to hear that sermon then those nagging questions would have gone unanswered and driven me quite over the edge. Please consider writing a book on this again. It is a message that is sorely needed for faithful spouses. May God Bless you and your Family.

    1. Thanks, Roberta, for the sharing! I am still planning on writing the book…however, Mrs. DM is in the middle of her second master degree plus we have to keep things above water with Munchkin…it is a project on the horizon, though.

      1. So glad to hear it’s still a goal, but even happier to hear that you are putting your beautiful family as a priority! That’s just what I love hearing. In the meantime I will be following your posts. They have been so helpful in my recovery of the abuse I was subjected to in my marriage. Thank you again for your encouraging words!
