About Victoria

Our Family

The first thing you should know about me is I like to shoot straight from the hip. I strive to be gut-honest. The second thing you should know about me is that I love, love, love creating safe spaces for mothers to share their hearts. Which means it might get a little messy up in here, but you’re very welcome to join along. (To contact me directly, write to mrsbnjcwilson(at)gmail(dot)com.)

Q & A

  • What is the most important lesson you’ve learned in life? Make much of Christ. Nothing else matters.
  • What is your earliest memory? Oddly, falling off of a brick playground wall in preschool. I remember because my face was all jacked up for weeks afterwards and I looked pathetic in our school pictures! I also remember a bad car wreck me and my mom were in when I was in preschool. Who knew preschool would be so violent?
  • Are there any words of wisdom you’d like to pass along to a younger version of you? Don’t take yourself too seriously. You’re *not* that awesome. Don’t despair in 8th grade, life gets way better than middle school. Don’t spend so much time in the clouds, get your hands dirty.
  • What are you proudest of in your life? Graduating college. Having a record of my writing from six-years-old and onward. Learning how to hold down a job and pay the rent. Giving birth to my daughters. I’m proud that I am loved by a steady man who loves the Lord.
  • When in life have you felt most alone? When my family dropped me off at college, also my first night living out on my own.
  • What are your deepest fears? I’m not going to tell you my deepest fears! But I can say that I have an irrational fear of dolls and windchimes. Yes, you read that correctly, dolls and windchimes.
  • How has your life been different than what you’d imagined? Well, I thought I would graduate college and take a job that would have be traveling the world. I wanted to end up back in the UK in a charming city flat or little countryside cottage number, married to a rugged Scotsman, where I could work and write and drink copious amounts of tea. I still drink copious amounts of tea, but my life looks way different and happily so!
  • How would you like to be remembered? As a woman who loved the Lord with all her heart, mind, and strength. Someone who loved, lead, encouraged, and corrected – and could write well about it. When people remember me, I want them to think of Jesus.
