"In telling the story of "The Making of Faith," Victoria Baker begins with the positive statement that "everyone faces challenges" in life. She proceeds to tell how she meets her crushing challenges. Victoria does so with unabashed heroic faith. The unseen but ever present Universal Power carries her through every step of the way and helps her to let go of the past, and be fulfilled in the present." - Victor P.
"When life around me fell apart, I chased after God begging, oh yes, pleading for my sanity and strength. Holding onto anger, hurt, and controlat the end of my long marriage, coping with the anguish of one son's autism while fighting, no, battling for educational support, kept me stuck. Giving up, surrendering to this Love who has promised through the ages to never let me go, I believed. While it felt magical, I realized it was God's longing for me, my children, and even those who hurt us to be whole, free, and peaceful. When I gave our Creator my heart, my life - our lives were never the same. We were made new. Love changes everything!"
Allowing the Divine to use her to tell a story of Love that won't let go, Victoria Baker unashamedly admits her absolute need for God. Coming to grips with the end of a long marriage, fighting for educational support for one son with autism, and the anguish of becoming a single parent of two young boys, ages seven and nine - she found herself devastated and up all night.

"As I read, my mind filled in so many stories we shared between the ones that made it to the book, so those who don't know you, will never know how truly amazing this whole time has been and even more amazing was that your faith deepened when most would lose faith.
May you and your family continue with many blessings that you see for yourself and also those you have yet to imagine. Literally, God bless you! Always with love." - Lenore B.
Facing these crises, especially the denial of autism for a decade by schools, Baker's lifelong relationship with God was the driving force of her mindset change, "believing is seeing!"

"Eerily enough, the very day before my husband ended our marriage, I’d had an odd foreboding during my prayer time. “I will always be with you,” God’s words resonated deep in my spirit. Oh, I don’t like the sound of this at all, was my return. “You will never walk alone,” Oh boy, I thought to myself, this can’t be good. What could He mean? What do you mean Lord?"
