Vikki Kennedy Johnson: Pain, Purpose and Power

How Bad Do You Want It?
There once was a woman who lived the perfect life. Everything she wanted she had. Every desire became a reality. There was never any lack in her life. She never had to worry, she was never mistreated and she had no idea of what it felt like to feel helpless. This sounds almost too perfect to be true and well, it is. Fairytales don’t always come true. The fact of the matter is that the life and the story of Elder Vikki Kennedy Johnson is by no means a fairytale but yet it is an inspiring true story to tell. The story goes a little like this:

There came a day in Vikki Kennedy Johnson’s life when she was given an assignment. The assignment was to reach hurting women and put them in a place spiritually that would allow them to heal and forgive. The way that she was called to do this was through her pain, her suffering and her struggle. So who gave her this assignment? It was Jehovah Rophe our healer. He took her behind the mountain and healed her so that she could become the type of mentor in ministry that she did not have, and to be a voice of guidance to women who were just like her.

How did this all happen for her?
Well, she was living her life just as life dealt it to her and then one day came her reality…
She married a manthis was honored by God. She was preaching the gospelthis too was honored by God. But what about the things that she was doing that were not honored by God? With this newly found reality, Vikki was faced with a decision to make. Does she remain faithful to her husband or does she choose her boyfriend? Should she even keep the baby that is not her husband’s child? She was faced with this decision not once but twice. So what does a faith-filled, married and preaching Woman of God do? Well, she decided to remain married and make the pregnancies a non-factor and rid herself of this shame and responsibility. She lost the boyfriends, the babies, her house and eventually the marriage. The one and only child that Vikki did have she was not connected to. She suffered from a severe case of post-partum depression and lost the sight of the bond between her and her child. In essence, she had lost it all, or so she thought. What Vikki later realized was that when everything else was gone, God was still there; an ever present help in the time of need.

God was definitely there because when she was at her wits end, and in the midst of her brokenness —He reached down and sent her help. God was there when hundreds of people at B.E.T. lost their jobs, and He elevated her. She was given a project called Wrap It Up. She embraced the assignment, though a bit reserved at first, and allowed God to work through her. Now, as a result of her obedience, she was part of the B.E.T. team to earn their first Emmy Award for the Public Service Campaign of the Year. When God does something “It’s A Wrap!”

The moral of the story is this; If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:  But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it (Isaiah 1:19-20). Because Vikki was obedient, she allowed her blessings to manifest. Through this obedience came Girl Talk Unplugged—The Ultimate Getaway where healing, inspiration, motivation, mother hood, and sisterhood are the core of the group. A part of the Girl Talk Unplugged- The Ultimate Getaway’s mission is to become all things to all women that the organization might win some to the Kingdom of God.

It is my prayer that through Vikki Kennedy Johnson’s story every hurting woman finds the will to heal. Every doubt-filled woman realizes that there is a God and He is in control. Every woman who shares a similar story understands the importance of processing your pain and pursuing your purpose. You too can rise above your hurts and heal. The question remains, how bad do you want it?

  4. Hi Kandy, I can’t speak from chemo experience but my father had stomach cancer and found eating a challenge and I have had severe digestive issues from long term pain med use and multiple surgeries and just seeing the light. My father hated Ensure products but found homemade soups including bone stocks very helpful (sorry I know this is not vegan), I also find these helpful. My hubby does a beef bone run to a local organic farmer (where we’ve seen first hand how the animals are raised ) and simmers them over about 24 hrs with filtered spring water and what limited veggies I can tolerate to extract the nutrients. Only recently was I able to add a bit of dried thyme for iron. We let it cool in the fridge and remove the fat and veggies. I’ve read the stock from grass fed beef bones helps digestion and even sleep. I do say a silent thank you to the cows who gave up their life to provide food for me. I can’t digest meat and sip the plain stock but you could add soaked red lentils (very mild) and any mild veggies then blend and sip. I also stated juicing very slowly after reading Kris’s blog last year and its going well but it’s a process. I’m still only able to tolerate maybe a cup of cucumber plus asparagus in the morning and add a bit of warm water to avoid hurting my stomach….my GI doc said warm liquid is more soothing to your stomach and helps digestion…just sip. I’m sure this website has some great recipes you could modify to be easier to digest right now than smoothies which are great but can be hard to process for sensitive systems. I even resorted to baby food at one point. There are also good teas like fennel that you could SIP warm especially at morning and before bed that would help (Google best teas for heart burn to start). BTW I’m hypoglycaemic and also have to be very aware of sugars, even ‘natural’ ones which my doctor assures me my body still sees as glucose. I. Sure you’re already know that smoothies can be very high in sugar. I hope some of this helps.
