Meet Eric and Vikki

About Vikki

I’m just a country girl staying connected to God by staying connected to what He put in my heart.

I am called to share all I have, all I am learning, and all I am with the world. I know I am to give away what has so graciously been given to me. I remain a student of life, continuing to learn while unlearning what no longer resonates with my spirit. I believe there are just a few life lessons, and they become more meaningful as we travel through life and our relationships. 

I call my toolbox An Awakened Life—An Unlearning Journey. These spiritual principles have come from many places: my work in therapy, the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, philosophy and scripture. When I practice these principles, I experience peace. When I do not, I experience suffering. They are just signposts and directional pointers to help guide me home when I’m lost. Back home to God and back home to the deepest part of myself.

I have wrestled with, resisted, run from, and eventually surrendered to these principles. 

This integration of waking up and letting go will last as long as I am on this side of heaven. 

I continue to share what I need to learn in hopes that with each passing of these truths, they go deeper into my soul. 

This is my journey. The two halves of my life that Carl Jung speaks of in his work, the morning and afternoon of life.

“But we cannot live the afternoon of life according to the program of life’s morning; for what was great in the morning will be little at evening, and what in the morning was true will at evening have become a lie.”

| Carl Jung |

About Eric

As a child, I heard about God through Sunday school stories in the Bible and knew there had to be a creator for all of the beauty in the world. But as a child I could not comprehend God’s love for me.

Somewhere along my path I became lost. I spent the next 25 years of my life living for me and worse, conscious that I was not listening to God’s calling. I recall at rest His calls were as subtle as “I love you follow me,” but I was deaf to his call. God put up road blocks, stop signs, red flags… and again that still small voice would call out to me, “I love you follow me,” still I would not respond.

Finally Jesus did for me what I would not do for myself. He intervened in a way that got my attention. I surrendered and gave my life to Him. I was born to Christ and surrendered my life to Him. He began a work in me and gave me a desire to choose to serve rather than take, give rather than expect, and build rather than ignore.

Now I find peace and comfort in the loving embrace of our heavenly Father. If someone would have told me 15 years ago that I would be in this current place in life I would have told them they were crazy. But through God all things are possible. I have a beautiful wife that is a light in this world, she loves Jesus and the world is a better place with her.
