Vicki Courtney, known for her writing on purity and modesty, shares a candid story of her son confessing that he and his fiancée hadn’t waited for marriage, leading to her pregnancy. This experience caused Vicki to re-examine her faith in light of self-imposed legalism, judgment, and idolatry. Speaking to parents of prodigal children, Vicki offers hope and encouragement in the midst of difficult situations. She challenges us to examine our own faith, drop the “pretender game” and allow God to meet us in our mess. Sharing how her past choices, including an abortion at age 17, shaped her Christian walk, Vicki charges us to embrace grace and live out an authentic God-centred faith.
