Restored Creations

The Story of Restored Creations:

Restored Creations is the social enterprise of Wheeler Mission’s Center for Women & Children in Indiana. The process of making candles provides a therapeutic outlet while empowering women to develop and practice transferable skills needed to obtain and maintain gainful employment. The enterprise is run by women who have survived homelessness, addictions, and brokenness. Each handcrafted item tells a story of restoration.

The Story Behind Our Logo:

Logos tell stories of the companies they represent. We longed for our logo to tell the story of Jesus and what he has done for us. Each one of us was caged by the bondage of sin (Romans 3:23). Christ redeemed and restored us through His sacrifice on the Cross which unlocked our cage of sin (Romans 3:24). Like birds in flight, we are free! Our freedom is not for selfish gain, but a calling given to us so that we can love and serve God by serving others (Galatians 5:13).

You can purchase our candles on the 6th floor of Wheeler’s Center for Women & Children (3208 E. Michigan Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46201) Monday – Friday, 9am-3pm.

 

We are also proud partners with Market Wagon, an online farmer’s market.
