"Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."

Ephesians 4:15-16

We are the caregivers to our disorder or disease afflicted family member on a daily diet of countless prescription medications.  We are the ego empowering, spiritually vacant with more faith in anti-depressants than God simply because science can numerically prove, discount and reprove their effects.  We are bitter, lonely, divorce-bound roommates trapped in confines of our smiles, lies and mortgage drowning four walls.  Once we finally call it quits, we become the women who courageously re-enter the bra-burning cycle as if victim was the only role we played in our hardship. 


It is time to ascend our commitments, overcome adversity, and support other women in trial.

OVERCOME


ADVERSITY

W.I.V.E.S.

Women Inquiring Valued Emotional Support


We are your teenage daughters, sisters, nieces, cousins and friends overwhelmed by social pressures involving premarital sex, drug use, and the desire to fit in to the cookie-cutter physical appearance of the girl next door.  We are the give-in girls who offer our body in exchange for faux love and affection.  We are the pregnant young women nearing single motherhood with limited emotional and financial resources.  We are the career-driven, know our worth, 30+ singles patiently waiting for our compliment who continuously chooses to leave happy hour with the one-night stand.  We are the long-term girlfriends behaving as wives while waiting for our boyfriend to execute the much overdue, perfect proposal.

COMMITMENTS

WOMEN INQUIRING VALUED EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

We are once head-over-heels turned nagging wives punishing our boundary-crossing spouses by withholding physical intimacy, but accepting gifts that negate appropriate consequences.  We are the weight-fluctuating, unkempt, minivan-driving soccer moms who scour at the pre-baby versions of ourselves who catch the eye of our sex-crazed husbands.  We are the mentally, physically and emotionally exhausted women who routinely experience sleepless nights catering to our households, careers, husbands and on rare occasion-  self.
