At the tender age of four years old, Vicki led her first song entitled “Take My Life”. It was that experience that changed her life like never before. All of her siblings are gifted to sing as well and they performed together for many years until the Lord called all of them into their own ministries.

The love of the gospel consumed her so much that the Lord spoke clearly to her and gave her the vision and assignment to reach the nations with the awesome gift that HE has given her. Her faith remains ignited by one of her favorite scriptures: Jeremiah 29:11 – “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”.
