Dresses and Heals is about addressing the need that women have to be dressed and healed by God, not by mediocre relationships that always seem to bring these beautiful young women into labyrinths. It really goes back to one viewing herself through the manner in which God, the Creator, sees her, because women are receptors and sometimes they find themselves in positions in which they are giving off more than they ought to, without receiving love back. This usually leaves a woman wounded, and you know what happens to an unattended wound-especially when it is in a hidden place? It becomes septic and therefore it destroys the other “functioning” cells in the body. Now, there are different strategies of forgetting about the pain and one of them is getting a ‘quick fix’...It is like getting a credit card to pay for the other one and another to pay for that one. It becomes a momentous cycle that just keeps on regenerating and mutating with each generation.
Dresses and Heals is also working with shelters for women and children in the CBD and will facilitate 20 women from different shelters. The members of Abraham’s Seed have been donating toiletries and every female member of ACTS... (www.acts-2011.webs.com) has been encouraged to bring an extra dress to the event in order to give to these women. Social workers have volunteered to come to the event in order to network with the women before and after the event. 40 women from a ACTS... (www.acts-2011.webs.com) , other groups and individuals, have volunteered to pair up and spend time on giving one woman a make-over as a pair.
There is no entrance fee to the Dresses and Heals formal dinner; instead, ACTS... (www.acts-2011.webs.com) is raising funds through poetry nights, games nights, selling muffins, etc.
Dresses and Heals is about restoring the brides to the ultimate BRIDEGROOM. It is about forgetting about the perfect man for a moment and focussing on being the perfect woman for the BRIDEGROOM, who in HIS entire entity promises companion (the HOLY SPIRIT) ever-lasting life (JESUS) and LOVE (GOD) who is Love in HIMSELF.
