The Ezer Project {Personal Project}

"It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make an ezer suitable for him" (Genesis 2:18).

Ezer is the Hebrew word for a woman. Literally translated, it means "warrior". It's the same word that men in Israel's history would name their sons to indicate strength.

"Eve and all her daughters are ezers - strong warriors who stand alongside their brothers in the battle for God's kingdom." (Carolyn Custis James)

This personal photography project was inspired by a number of people, things, and Scripture verses. Ultimately, however, the purpose is to show the strength of all women THROUGH Christ alone. Each word written on each girl is a representation of the reality dwelling inside. We are tattooed with these attributes because of Christ and it makes us not weak damsels in distress, but valiant warriors standing together.

This is only the beginning of this project! More will be coming in time!
