Meet Eric and Vikki
To me following Jesus means receiving love and then giving it away, in that order. For the first half of my life, I fought and rejected my genetic blue print, my gift from God, who He created me to be. This was compounded by alcoholism, addiction and depression. This all came to an end on September 11, 2001 on the floor underneath a desk at Home Depot’s corporate office while on the phone talking to a pastor about suicide.
Jesus has brought many people across my path to help me along this journey. It has not been easy and I have made it much harder than it has to be. However, He turns it all for his good. In my experience, to the degree we suffer is to the degree we have compassion. For the last part of life my hand has been extended to receive…it is now my turn not to waste one tear and extend my hand to give.
It is up to me how deep or shallow I choose to live my life, I now choose to live it from the deepest part of my being, I am joyful, I am grateful, I have a strong sense of spirit, caring for others hearts as closely as my own. Life continues to teach me love, compassion, and healing. I have been called to share all that I am, all that I have, and all that I have learned with the world . . . It is well with my soul.
