Perseverance, Potholes and Prayer
Finding hope and direction with Christ and others through life’s difficult journey
This life is like a road we walk on from Jerusalem to Jericho. The road is difficult, rocky, downhill and filled with danger. This weekend will be a time of identifying what “supplies” are needed, recognizing the importance of God’s word in our lives and realizing the necessity of forgiveness in order to persevere through this sometimes pothole filled life!
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world” John 16:33
Vicki Ethier is passionate about embracing the life God has given her! This past year has been a walk of faith, as she was diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer in August 2015. “One Day at a Time” is not just a pretty song! She has learned not only, that “God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1), but that God, the creator of this world, is her Father. She is His child, and can trust Him to take care of her! “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! (1John 3:1)
Vicki and her husband Rick have been performing professionally throughout New England for the past 10 plus years under the names Vic and Sticks, with their “Vicki & Sticks” show. They perform a family/kids music show for fairs, festivals, churches, libraries, schools and community events. They also performed on season 2 of “America’s Got Talent”! Vicki performs “Songs of Faith & Comic Tunes” for women events, as the Minister of Joy!
Vicki, her husband Rick and two children, plus two tiny dogs, live in Leicester, MA.
