Vicki Joy graduated from University of Northwestern in St. Paul, MN majoring in Bible and English with a writing emphasis. After many years in corporate management, Vicki Joy stepped out in faith to become a full-time author and speaker in 2019—a calling she received when she was ten years old.

Born with Hypertelorism, a facial deformity that inflicts one out of every 100,000 births, Vicki Joy endured more than 25 excruciating reconstructive surgeries between the ages of ten days old and fifteen. But the operations were truly the easy part! The hardest part was facing her peers and having to start over again every two-to-three years as her father’s job demanded constant relocations. Over time, this eroded Vicki Joy’s sense of safety and her ability to make secure, long-term attachments with others; which was only compounded by the insecurities that resulted from having a deformed face.

Homosexuality is only one of many ways the Adversary “kills, steals, and destroys” our sexual identity. Yes, in some cases, people fall into same sex relationships, while others, like Vicki Joy, become so emotionally isolated and self-protective, that the “natural desires” are repressed and eventually go away completely. In either case, we are robbed of all God had planned for us and for our JOY! But the enemy doesn’t have to win—there is hope and healing for this kind of brokenness too!
