Vicky Schmid’s Magnificent House

During my last visit to Europe last year, I visited my friend Vicky Schmid in Offenburg, Germany. She has a magnificent house, exquisite in its minimalism. 

It is a house that is perfect for meditation as the interiors are so pristine and uncluttered, with a view that is a manifestation of God’s glory. 

Vicky invited me over to attend the Alfred Gerardi Foundation’s 25th anniversary.   The foundation is her demised husband’s legacy, which awards Direct Marketing scholarships to deserving students.  Vicky Schmid and her husband, Hans Schmid, are one of the biggest players in the field of Direct Marketing.  

Visit their website :

My meditation place was so uncluttered and so serene.
