Hi! Welcome to Victoria, Truthfully!

My name is Victoria, and I live with my husband Reed in the beautiful Bay Area, CA, where we serve as pastors at The Bridge. We love seeing people in our community come alive in their relationships with Jesus, and feel deeply grateful everyday, to bring the life-changing love of God wherever we go.

I have always been a creative, a lover of the written word, and an admirer of the beautiful. When I write and make, I learn. I believe that the things that make us come alive are there on purpose, for a purpose! As we step into those things, we tell the world about a creative God. There are too few platforms for the Jesus-seeking person - the one who cares about cultivating a beautiful heart, making the most of everyday, and stepping into their unique calling. My hope is that this little corner of the blogging world would feel like a safe haven and an inspiration for those people, and that my words would read like those of a friend.

When you visit Victoria, Truthfully, you can expect to find lists of things I'm loving/reading/doing (life, in lists), snapshots of what I'm up to and lifestyle bits (life, lately), and lastly, lessons I'm learning (life, in words). I'm so glad you're here - I hope you'll stay a while!

This is a blog for the people who live abundantly and cultivate beautiful hearts.
