Hi! I'm Victoria and I love to talk about your next victory!
My name is Victoria Riollano. However, I love to call myself Victory! I am a mother of seven beautiful children and a proud military spouse! Go Coast Guard! Although I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia I currently reside in the Washington, DC area. I am the visionary of the Victory Speaks blog.
As a preacher's granddaughter, I grew up as no stranger to basic Christian ideas. However, I truly spent many years confused about who God was and what it meant for me. At the age of 19, I accepted Christ and was baptized at Church of The Harvest International. Since then, I have served as assistant youth minister, middle school coordinator, MOPS (mothers of preschoolers) assistant coordinator, and more! My most rewarding ministry experience has been launching Enlighten Church in Stafford, Va alongside my husband Pastor Joe Riollano. I currently serve as the Co-Pastor and Worship Leader within our church.
In addition to my work in ministry, I have made education a priority in my life. I have attained a Bachelor's Degree in Developmental Psychology and a Master's in Child and Adolescent Psychology. I love learning about personality and behavior and recognizing how God created us all so intricately unique. This love has helped to become a Professor of Social and Developmental Psychology at Toccoa Falls College, Crown College, and Oral Roberts University. In addition, I have found a true love for speaking to local mom's groups and ministering to churches in the DC area through worship.
My true passion is that every person I encounter experiences the love of Christ. I believe that God's desire is that every person become one who can walk in true victory. The defeated life that is lonely, confused, and lackluster is not for those who know who they are in Christ. My hope is that each moment of inspiration that the Lord gives me for this page will be to help YOU realize that you are victorious. And when you begin to walk in victory in your life, you can't help but tell the world! He has delivered me from being depression, suicidal thoughts, fear, and so much more...His love for me makes it impossible to keep quiet! My VICTORY SPEAKS!
