Eye Of The Storm

Ever since I launched JSSM in November 2021, the response has been overwhelming. Here are some of the lovely feedback I received: It’s an accelerated season for Jeffrey’s Bay. Vicki, you’re destined to pioneer God’s dreams. May God continue to strengthen you and the team, to keep on doing the great work you are doing. Just …

Legally Pure

A couple of weeks ago, I re-watched Legally Blonde on Netflix for the first time in years. Immediately, I took a walk down memory lane, and it felt like I was a teenager again. I couldn’t stop smiling all throughout the film, and I even laughed a few times. Most of all, I was struck …

See The Signs

It’s everywhere. It pops up during conversations, it shows on our phone screens. It’s on billboards and adverts. It’s in magazines and newspapers. It’s written in the clouds and the rainbows. It’s through sermons and podcasts. It shows up in our dreams and visions. It’s weaved in nature and the chaos of the city. It’s …

Lock & Key

As a child, I had an obsession with Hollywood and all it entailed. We didn’t have the internet, so my only means of access to Hollywood was through reading Huisgenoot (YOU) magazines. However, I was forbidden from reading that ‘gossipy magazine’, but I made a plan. Every week or so, I would visit my friend’s home. …

Childlike Boldness

Boldness is an awkward, uncomfortable thing. It forces you to step outside of your cozy little boat and to walk on the unpredictable water. It’s sink or swim once you get going. This week, I decided to relaunch my creative writing school project. I started marketing it again, this time at a coffee shop and …

Rhythms Of Grace

At the age of twenty-two, my first book was published. It happened rather easily and unexpectedly. A publisher had seen me on television, and they emailed me, ‘Please write your memoir.’ I was given carte blanche, with only one request. I had to write the book in Afrikaans. I was a full-time motivational speaker by …

Ruling The Hallways

My early years were spent climbing trees with friends, going to the park with friends, and riding bikes with friends. My whole childhood was filled with friends – friends that I made on the street, friends at children’s church, friends in school, friends at friends’ houses, etc. Everywhere I went, I collected friends like I …

BSSM Testimonies

We kicked off the weekend with an alumni meeting, then an Encounter Evening at Global Leadership Academy. The next morning we did Treasure Hunt on the streets of Jeffrey’s Bay. On Sunday afternoon, we had a gathering at Grant’s place. It was a weekend filled with Spirit-led moments, radical encounters, prophesying, worship, etc. Herewith, a …

My Past Rewritten

| First Published in Kouga Express Newspaper | Some things can be replaced: a lost key, sunglasses, a cosy jersey. Other things take more time to get restored: money, old houses, broken-down cars. Even relationships can get a second chance once new life is breathed into them. But time can’t be restored – or can …

Rebels With A Cause

‘Everywhere I go, I’ve been praying for the people: ‘Lord, restore their wild heart. Restore what religion called rebellion, what culture labeled too radical, and what tamed them from being the undignified lovers they were called to be.’ Right now, I pray that over you too.’  Nate Johnston Lately, I’ve felt something rising up in me. …

Dancing Hands

‘Because of the purity of your hands, God will rescue the ones who are not innocent… Through God’s grace in your life, the guilty will escape.’  Job 22:30 As a child, my hand was safe and sound in my mother’s hand whenever we crossed the street. ‘Look left, then right. Then left again,’ she would …
