The Committed Necklace | 18K gold-plated stainless steel pendant | Dipped gold and black colour | 32” with 1” extension chain

[com·mit·ted]  adjective Wholeheartedly dedicated

The Committed Necklace isn’t just a beautiful piece of jewelry, it is a movement.”

 

There is a woman somewhere out there at this moment who is enslaved in sexual exploitation. She feels small, lacking in worth, unclean, and irrelevant. She has experienced repeated sexual violence and abuse at the hands of her abusers in an effort to break her will and make her comply with theirs. This abuse has become the daily reality of her life, and she has come to believe that this is the truth of who she is. She feels hopeless, unworthy, and alone.

 

At Eden, we are committed to speaking truth to these women and letting them know that they are not forgotten or alone. But there are only a few of us; and there are so many women out there with a story like the one above. This is where we invite you to join our movement of commitment.

 

When you purchase and wear Eden’s Committed Necklace, it represents a promise from you. Each necklace has a Middle Heart that is given to a woman during our outreach. When we give it to her, we tell her that somewhere in another city or country there is a person wearing the other half of her necklace. We tell her that this person is committed to her through remembering her. This is important because this may be the first time anyone has ever been committed to her, or promised to remember her and fight for her.

We often feel paralyzed by the enormity of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation, and we can forget that there are real people behind the numbers. The Committed Necklace reminds you, the wearer, that every trafficking and exploitation survivor has a face. She is a person. She has a heart and a soul. She is not an issue or a cause. She is worthy, precious, and valuable. And she holds the Middle Heart of your Committed Necklace.

 

IMG_4747-1We ask you to commit to remember the woman holding the Middle Heart to your necklace, and to raise awareness about trafficking and exploitation survivors. This purchase is a direct opportunity for you to be a part of a movement bringing freedom to exploited women.

 

We also invite you to use the comment boxes below to send a personalized message of hope and encouragement to the person holding the Middle Heart to your Committed Necklace. The Eden team will translate your message and give it along with the Middle Heart as a gift to a woman we meet in the red-light districts. Alternatively, you can send your message to committed.necklace@edenministry.org.

 

Thank you for being committed to her. Thank you for being wholly dedicated to her.

The prices above include (1) the Committed Necklace for the purchaser and (2) the Middle Heart Necklace which will be received by a woman in one of Asia’s red-light districts.

    My name is Annette.
    I just bought my half of our necklace last monday. At night I had a strange dream. I dreamed that I was in a big cathedral, with many rooms. All of a sudden gold dust was comming down out of nowhere. As I looked at my right arm, some of the gold dust has formed into at message saying: ‘I am 17 years old, my name is Ling.” I’m convinced that it was you, that message came from.
    I have a 13 year old daugther, and my heart breaks, thinking of what a young girl like you are going through.
    Let me tell you this: You are Gods jewel. He LOVES his little girl, nothing can change that.
    In John 14:2-3 it says: in my fathers house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
    And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also”
    You belong in the house of the Father. Not in the basement. He invites you to a banquet in the finest hall.
    Lord I pray, that you will lead my sister to your courts. Fill her with your Holy spirit. Heal any brokenness, breath new life in to her. Let her know how much you love her.
    Love Annette

    Dear (your name),

    I am treasuring wearing the other heart of your necklace and it makes me think of you.
    I pray that you receive real freedom in life, in both body, soul, heart and spirit.

    Even though I have never met you I know that you are beautiful inside and out, this is how the Lord made you. You are perfect in every way!

    The Lord is with you. I pray for healing of hurts.

    Remember that You are not alone.

    Dear little girl.
    I will every day think of you and pray for you as long as I live on this earth. And I hope that we meet. If not before, then in heaven, where God has promised us that no pain or grief should be.
    When you wear your little heart, I want you to remember that God loves you completely and unconditionally! He goes with you where no one else can.
    Best wishes from Mary

    Dear …, I don´t know your name, but I feel blessed to be able to pray for you to our Heavenly Father who indeed knows your name. He has known you and loved you always. We live in an evil world and it saddens my heart to know that you are in this situation, but as I carry the other part of our heartnecklace I will remember you and pray for you to find peace, joy and love in Him who loved you so much that he gave his very life for you. You are not alone, you are loved and He can set you free. Love Hanne from Denmark

    Precious woman of great worth.
    Let this heart remind you that I am thinking of you and praying for you.
    Praying that you would know the love and comfort of God. That you would know that your life matters.
    I may not know your story but God does and he loves you so much and wants you to know the hope and freedom that comes from knowing Him.

    Hi Eden, I don’t understand how you connect my messages to the girl who is given the Middle heart of my Committed Neclace? Don’t you need to register the number of my neclace? Love from Maria, Dk

    Dear precious child of God,
    May you find your path back to love. May you never give up. May you find comfort in knowing that you are loved by God always. May you know that even though we don’t always understand the pain we go through, all we need is to have faith in that “we can do all things through Him who gives us strength” (Phil 4:13). God is more concerned about building our character than giving us an easy life – great growth comes from great pain and many tears. Some day your tears will all be wiped away. May you never lose hope. Have faith in that there is someone looking over you always. God never forgets you, even though we don’t always understand the things we have to go through. Love, Christina, sunflowerseedhugs@gmail.com

    I recently purchased this Committed necklace which I think is a wonderful idea. Ive been wearing mine since I got it and it reminds me of the person wearing the other part of it. Very beautiful idea and its also nice to tell other the story behind the necklace so not only touching one person but many!

    Dear loved child of God,
    I’m so thankfull that I have the matching neckless to yours. I want you to know, that I think of you, and pray for you, every time I have it on. I hope that the neckless willl show you, have much you are worth. May the heart of gold give you trust in love, and may you never give up. God will always be on your side, and may that give you comfort. May you know that even though we don’t always understand the pain we go through, all we need is to have faith in that “we can do all things through Him who gives us strength” (Phil 4:13). May you experience that God gives you strength and courage to go his way.
    May you always know that I will pray for you and fight beside your (in the spiritual world), and that God never forgets you, even though we don´t always understand your way in life.
    Love Stine, from Denmark

    To a wonderful precious woman,
    Please know that your story, struggles and journey are known by God. He loves each one of us and knows our most deepest thoughts and desires. He promises never to leave us no matter what and He also promises to give us an eternal life where our inner self has freedom and peace and in a caring and safe relationship with Him that can start right now…We only have to seek Him and ask.

    You are precious and extremely valuable in His sight. His love is pure, beyond what any human can give.

    I too in my struggles know His promises and cling to them. He does give me a sense of peace beyond what the earthly circumstances are. I have part of your necklace and will be remembering and praying for you.

    From His word the Bible it says …

    “We wait in hope for the Lord; He is our help and our shield. In Him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in His holy name. May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.” Psalm 33:20-22 AND

    “I sought the Lord, and He answered me; He delivered me from all my fears, Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame, ” Psalm 34: 4,5

    Love Nicole

    To the beautiful person who will be receiving this message. I am so honored to wear this necklace with you. I am committing to pray for you in hopes that you will understand how much you are loved by me and our heavenly Father. I pray for you to feel the holy spirit move in your life and make you understand that you are worthy, loved, special, and that you are never alone. Jesus is walking with you every day taking on your fears, your burdens, and he is only asking that you trust him. Have faith that he will meet your needs and he will give you the strength to face each day with hope. I pray you will find joy and happiness resting in Jesus arms.

    In his love, Brinda

    To the beautiful girl who receives the heart belonging to this necklace my husband bought me as a gift. I noticed the contrast between the light and the dark and thought how life is like that. Jesus said
    ” I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of light.” I pray that when you do feel afraid that you will know that there are people who care and a God who loves you and will show you the way through the dark times and there is a light that will never go out. You have part of my necklace and you have part of mine and that way we can have a connection and a reminder that someone somewhere cares and has a heart for commitment and the fight for freedom.
    love Jenny.
