I have had the blessings of Vicki’s teaching, counseling, and friendship for several years. No one thinks like Vicki! She sees truths that most others miss. Her perspective always resonates with my spirit, that what I am hearing is true, satisfying, and even exciting. The things I have learned from her have deeply impacted my life, enhanced my understanding, and invited me to know my Dad in new ways – ways that I would not have seen on my own. She has gently encouraged me to not only think outside my little box, but to finally realize that there IS no box! I very often hear her words come out of my mouth as I counsel and coach others. Be prepared to go deep, and enjoy seeing God and yourself in fresh ways.

The experience of the ministry I encountered was life changing. I had the opportunity to visit on the phone. She asked if she could pray and she did. The Spirit of the living Lord came through the phone and spoke to me in my spirit and heart while she prayed. I have never experienced such an anointing of prayer.
Another experience was going through materials she referred to as "Good, Bad or God." I have always categorized things in my life as good or bad. The Lord showed me while reading that many of the events and difficulties I thought were very bad could and would be used for good. That He would use the pain of losses in my life and heal my broken heart.
It also allowed me to see other people in my life who I considered "bad" to no longer be seen as "bad" and that my stuff was as sinful as theirs.
The Lord healed me of saying this is good or bad. I now say when it appears to be "bad", that this is an opportunity to see how God is going to turn in into good. I also see people as how God sees them, loved by Him.
I am grateful for the kindness and loving spirit, I was met with.

Over the years, talking has always been easy and you know what she says is working towards bringing you to a God filled peace about whatever is troubling you.

Do you remember the song “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” sung by Carole King? Is that not what we all want to know when we share who we are with someone else, and cautiously step into a new relationship? The day of my first appointment, I wondered the same thing. Can I tell her my secrets? Can I tell her my pain? Can I tell her what angers me? And if I do, will she still love me? So I stepped into this unknown place and the relationship began. I bravely shared my story of pain, disappointment and despair. I told my secrets. And then the day came when I shared my anger. Would she still love me? Would she still care? Not only did she love me, she encouraged me to tell her more. And as I shared, she shared her story. She met me in my pain and anger. She did not look down at me, judge me or give me all the answers. She joined me where I was and walked with me. She invited God to join us. She prayed her beautiful, poetic prayers. She shared her extensive biblical knowledge and wisdom with humility. She cried with me. She told me funny stories. We laughed. She shared what she treasures in life. She drew pictures. We shared hugs. Not only did she receive me with love and grace, but she taught me how to rest with God while He provides and protects, how to listen for God’s whisper and most importantly, how to enjoy my relationship with God. A place of ruthless trust! A place where I see miracles every day! It started with “Will she still love me?” and ended with not only a loud and resounding YES, but “He still loves me”! And He loved me enough to gift me with what has become a beautiful, loving friendship.

I am a prisoner in the Oklahoma D.O.C. serving a 220 year sentence for crimes which I did not commit. When I met Vicki I had no voice. No one would listen to me. No one would take my claims seriously. Vicki listened to me. She invested in my innocence. Her efforts were instrumental in getting my case assigned to the Oklahoma Innocence Project. Vicki was my voice when I did not have one. God chose to use her hands to answer my prayers for help and justice. Over the years of her ministry to the body of incarcerated believers at Joseph Harp I changed from a rigid religious legalist to one who now understands God’s grace. Over more than 15 years of our friendship I’ve watched as God gives me opportunity to share with others what I’ve learned from her and other teachers and authors she has introduced me to. Other inmates, often strangers, come to me and I able encourage some and teach others. I do hope one day to be freed yet I have found peace where I am.
