You are the 

Crown of Creation

Empowering women with the TRUTH of their identity and worth in Christ

WHY?

Emotional and verbal abuse combine to form a silent epidemic that is much more subtle than physical abuse. According to Domestic Shelters, 48.4% of women have experienced

psychological abuse.

Women who have been psychologically abused for extended periods of time eventually begin to believe the lies and insults attacking their self-confidence, intelligence, worth,

and even identity.

Many women hide the fact that they are being psychologically abused due to shame the abuse has produced. This abuse can be harder to detect as a result of the manipulative

tactics of the abuser.

Unfortunately, the psychological devastation in relationships is often accompanied and intensified by dealing with the addictions and/or infidelity of a significant other. 

The grueling effects of such situations permeate every facet of day to day life creating issues with confidence, decision making, parenting,

difficulty trusting others, overall wellbeing, and the list goes on... 

Even in the wake of emotional calamity, there is HOPE.  In Christ, beauty WILL rise from the ashes.  The word of God promises that He is FAITHFUL, He is TRUSTWORTHY, He LOVES YOU, and He has your BEST INTEREST at heart! 

 

The Ezer Kenegdo Foundation is dedicated to facilitating healing by empowering women with the TRUTH of their identity and worth in Christ!

 
 

WHAT WE DO

We have first hand experience in the area of psychological abuse...

Our Mission...

To speak truth from the Word of God into the lives of women particularly concerning the matters of their identity and worth; thereby, revealing and countering false perceptions and untruths projected by self or others.

 

Our homes should be a place of rest, renewal, and a safe place to voice and express our innermost thoughts and emotions.  Unfortunately, for many women who are emotionally and verbally abused their homes are ground zero for the deepest emotional devastation. 

 

Many find themselves in a constant state of fight or flight mode, which is a body mechanism that was never intended to be sustained for long periods of time; these women become locked into this stressful state for weeks, months, and even years.  Not only are there psychological ramifications such as panic attacks, depression, and anxiety, but the body also begins to develop physical symptoms such as gastrointestinal disorders, weight gain or loss, increase risk of illness due to impaired immunity, and many others. 

 

Being in a constant state of bracing for the next anger outburst, devaluing word, or public humiliation is absolutely exhausting both physically and mentally.  Understand that these effects permeate every single moment of every day....

But PRAISE GOD there is HOPE!  

Our Goal...

Our vision is to facilitate healing from psychological abuse by providing a safe, home-like setting in which women can be free to speak about their experiences, build confidence, build support systems, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.  

 

This will be a place of REST and RETREAT from the stressors and demands of life.  The future Ezer Kenegdo Haven will host weekend retreats that will include biblical studies conducted by women who have had extensive personal experiences in the area of psychological abuse.  

 

Not only will we minister to the spirit of each woman, but to each as the true treasure she is.  There will be times of pampering, meals will be provided, and of course a good night's sleep in our bed and breakfast ambience! 

 

This calm and inviting atmosphere will be a place of HEALING; a safe place for women to let down the walls of hurt, and begin to learn who Christ is, and who HE says they are!  Because when we discover our TRUE identity in Christ, EVERYTHING changes and TRUE HEALING begins. 

“And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, declares the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst. ”

— Zechariah 2:5 (ESV)

BEHIND THE NAME

Ezer Kenegdo

In the beginning...

When God so brilliantly created the universe,

He wove into creation whispers of His love. 

With each creation He affirmed it to be good,

but even after the creation of man

He knew His masterpiece was not yet complete.

With intricate significance,

God created the final detail and crown of creation, woman....

who He called Ezer Kenegdo,

which means "life saver" or "helper that is compliment to." 

Every other area in the Hebrew Bible

where the term "ezer" is mentioned,

it refers to attributes of God as savior, helper, and rescuer

(According to early scripture research conducted

by Ransomed Heart Ministries and Robert Alter) 

 

You see, man and woman both equally

bear the image of God himself,

but different aspects of His image are seen

in man and others in woman. 

Women are not an afterthought to God.  

Kings and queens do not place their crown on last

because they almost forgot to wear it,

but because it is the final piece

that completes the embodiment of their status as royalty. 

From the beginning of time,

God has established and reiterated your value,

which if you have forgotten is utterly PRICELESS!!! 

"You did not choose me, but I chose you..." 

John 15:16

 

With God...

All things are possible!!! 

"The latter glory of this house shall be greater than the former, says the Lord of hosts.

And in this place I will give peace,

declares the Lord of hosts." 

Haggai 2:9

Can you see the beauty here? 

Sure, this house is in great need of repair, but we see this as an opportunity to restore and breathe life back into the dry bones of this 1920s estate in much the same way as we are expecting God to restore lives!  This historic home has more than enough space to accommodate our vision for the Ezer Kenegdo Haven, a home-like atmosphere where women will be comforted and strengthened by God's word!  This house will be the birthplace of new life, identity, and purpose! 

The Ezer Kenegdo Foundation does not have possession of this property at this time, but we are believing for God to work.  Much research and time has been invested in the procurement of this home.  We have met with contractors in order to determine restoration costs.  Each step has been prayerfully considered. Due to the fact that we are a 501c3 tax exempt nonprofit organization we are able to receive grants for the restoration of this home. However, we are in need of monthly supporters in order to receive these grants and purchase the home at a reasonable cost. If you would like to consider making a tax-deductible donation, please visit our take action page.
