Show Notes

Vicki Rose is a strong Bible teacher with a relevant, life-changing message. She was born and raised in New York City and upon graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in 1975, Vicki began her retail career at Saks Fifth Ave and went on to marry Bill Rose in 1977.

After almost 10 years of marriage, Vicki found herself the single mother of a 1½ and 4-year-old, separated from her husband who was addicted to cocaine, women, and work. 1½ years later, Vicki accepted Christ through an outreach dinner at age 35 and became a passionate follower of Jesus Christ with a deep hunger for His word.

As Vicki began to pray for her husband to also know Christ, her heart toward him changed and they were reconciled after he accepted Christ, entered rehab and they spent time in biblical counseling. They had been separated for 5 ½ years. Both Vicki and Bill are Jewish believers though neither was raised in a religious Jewish home.

Vicki has taught, facilitated, and led many Bible Studies for women in her church and the professional baseball world. Her passion is mentoring younger women in their marriages, parenting and in their walk with Jesus. She has taught and shared her testimony across the U.S. as well as in Nicaragua, Poland, Russia, Bulgaria and Italy and Albania.

Vicki’s story has been aired on Revive Our Hearts with Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth (February, 2009), Family Life Today with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine (December, 2008), and Focus on the Family with Jim Daly and John Fuller(2015).

Vicki’s first book, EVERY REASON TO LEAVE; and Why We Chose to Stay Together, was released by Moody Publishers in August 2014.
