Victoria's Story

Atlanta-based motivational speaker Victoria Teague is an educator and mentor whose specialty is helping women to live their dreams.


After experiencing the tragic loss of her younger sister to cancer and becoming a victim of a teenage rape, Victoria fell into addictive behaviors to find acceptance. Her life was radically transformed through the concern and assistance of a Christian woman and the unconditional love of Jesus Christ. Victoria’s Friends was birthed out of the life-changing work God did in Victoria's life.

After graduating from college with a bachelor's degree in psychology and working as a corporate sales consultant, Victoria discovered her life’s calling to help people reach their full potential. During this time, she learned various tools and processes to help people think about their inner values, purpose, and vision.

Victoria is a trained Stephen Minister, and since 1995 has successfully counseled many women. In 2000, she founded her nonprofit charity, Victoria’s Friends, to work specifically with women in crisis. She has significant experience with life-altering issues such as abuse, addiction, rape, eating disorders, abortion and homelessness. Since that time, too, Victoria's Friends has sponsored Baskets of Love, an outreach to women in the adult entertainment industry. Victoria's goal is to help individuals heal from their wounds, move past their fears, and tap into their unique God-given gifts and calling in life.

Victoria has additionally authored three books. One, Reaching for Life is her amazing testimony, another is entitled, Finding Heaven, which is about spiritual and mental care. Her third and most recent book is called Sparkle and Shine which is a beautiful book full of encouraging stories that encourage you to sparkle and shine in your faith. You can purchase her books using the links below.
