Victoria's Story

Finding God in everyday life

Our first story about faith in everyday life is about Victoria. Victoria sees her job as a hairdresser as a vocation. She is cutting hair as a job – not just for the money, for the satisfaction of being creative or even for the genuine pride found in using her skills to help people feel good.

We all have a variety of roles to fulfil. Some might feel like a ‘vocation’ – something that we know God is calling us to undertake and through which we sense God at work. For Victoria, and maybe for each of us, understanding our vocation comes a layer at a time. The starting point – as in so many things – is prayer.

Victoria found a way to invite God into her everyday life by praying blessings on the people she served. That’s her secret. It’s a quiet practice of gift giving – a gift of blessing others through our talents and prayers.

Seeing God at work in our lives is often a hard thing to become aware of. Challenge yourself to look out for how God is working in your life; and share your everyday faith stories using #EverydayFaith on social media.
