Victoria grew up in a non-religious home. Her father was an unyielding Soviet-Jewish atheist. Any talk of religion in her home was met with reproach. As she grew up, found a career and settled into life, Victoria found it empty. She turned to alcohol to mask her pain. An act of kindness from her sister forced her to stop drinking, but then more trouble started.
Eventually, Victoria visited a Messianic Bible study and it opened her eyes to Jesus, the Messiah of Israel. As a follower of Jesus of Nazareth she has found hope, peace, and contentment with life.
