Hey there! I am so glad you found your way here. I’m Tiffany, the face behind Lavender Vines. 🙂
I created Lavender Vines to provide you with a source of comfort, strength, hope, and adventure. I’m passionate about encouraging you to grow in your faith, travel the world, and live life to the absolute fullest.
But, honestly, it’s a long story. Let me explain.
I was halfway through my 20’s and life honestly wasn’t too bad. I had a passion for travel that seemed to have been with me from birth. I made it my mission to tick off some bucket list items early in life, and shrugged off comments like, “you have your whole life to travel” with a laugh (see where I’ve traveled). I had traveled the world, found a decent paying job, and married my college boyfriend. I was pretty happy and content.
But then, my life crumbled out from under me. I discovered that my husband (who was my rock) was having an affair, and wanted to leave me. Everything that I knew to be true about myself and my life, was gone in an instant. I didn’t know who I was anymore. Sadness and betrayal consumed me. What would my life look like now? I felt like I was drowning, and I didn’t know how to get out. Everything that had previously made me happy (shopping, traveling, etc.), no longer did. I felt empty. Everything seemed hopeless. Everything, except for my faith.
It was during this time that I turned to God. And he actually spoke to me and told me three simple truths that forever changed my life. He said, “I see you, I know you’re in pain, and I love you.” That was the most unforgettable moment of my life. God (the creator of the universe!) saw me. He knew I was in pain. And he loved me. My life was forever changed.
From that moment on, I decided to 100% put my faith and trust in God. Jesus became my rock. My true rock.
However, there were still nights when I couldn’t sleep, and was gripped with hopelessness and fear. When I didn’t have the strength to read the Bible, I would call a friend, who would tell me stories about God’s faithfulness. The only thing that provided me with comfort was the Word of God. Promises from the Bible about how God would never leave me, and that he had plans for me, to provide me with a future and hope. I wanted the Word of God around me at all times. It provided me with a source of strength and comfort. And it was through God’s word, and his unconditional love, that I found hope and joy again.
This is why I created the 21 Day Journey. Not everyone has a friend they can call to lift them up. It is through this journey that we will walk through (together!) some of God’s greatest promises. 🙂
So with that, let’s have FUN! Life is meant to be celebrated together. Join me in seeking God, chasing adventure, and living life to the absolute fullest.
Join a group of positive, authentic, and wanderlust-seeking believers, who depend on and find strength in God’s love and promises.
Don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, you’re in the right place. Sign up for my 21 Day Journey (pssst it’s free!). During this time, we’ll hang out and explore together some of God’s greatest promises!
Before I go, I want to share with you the Bible verse that was the inspiration behind the name, Lavender Vines.
John Chapter 15 says,
I want to encourage you to grab hold of the true vine. It’s not a coincidence you found my page. Thank you so much for being here, I genuinely appreciate it and you! 💜
