WE ARE EMILY by Timothy

To be a man is to be strong in conviction as well as heart and too often we have been blown around in the wind by our own fear. We have let go of all strength to join a path of passiveness and less resilience leaving women hurt and let down.

Hear me right because this isn’t about me standing on a soap box and talking about “those guys” in fact quite the opposite. I have been that guy who has lusted after women in the street, I’ve been the guy who has coward in fear when I was supposed to speak up and affirm and I’ve hid behind “harmless” male camaraderie that has consequently undervalued and stolen trust from women. Truly we have all fallen short, all failed to give what we owe our women so this isn’t a blame game but a opportunity for real change.

The fact is women have been undervalued throughout the ages (Especially in the Body of Christ I would argue) held in a prison of bad theology and lack of understanding of the heart of God.

Society has cheapened beauty reducing it to something that can be achieved, attained or brought in a “beauty” store this is ignorant and damaging to us as Humanity. When we deny women what they deserve to be recognised, valued and sought after we create an unbalance. We desperately need women to know who they are but to often its been us Men who were supposed to support, uphold and encourage who have deceived them.

“A woman in her glory, a woman of beauty, is a woman who is not striving to become beautiful or worthy or enough. She knows in her quiet centre where God dwells that he find her beautiful, has deemed her worthy, and in him, she is enough” John Eldridge

So I understand this video and project isn’t the beginning or the end of this journey but it is something we feel passionate about releasing to the world to join with a movement of people who are hungry to see change.

Too often we have failed to protect your hearts and left you confused by a world that doesn’t understand and appreciate you and that isn’t okay. I’m sorry we’ve been afraid to venture into the depths of you and consequently never saw your treasure and were unable to marvel and the intrinsic nature of the beauty woven into your story.

#WeAreEmily is a project designed to help us rediscover, redefine and recapture the Heart of Beauty. We believe that beauty cannot be lost or attained but is part of the DNA of every Women. We hope this project will spark change in the hearts of men and women as we honour the Gold in each women.
