At Vine Life Faith we’re all about living the abundant life Jesus gave us, fully dependent on Him. And that’s no small feat in a world where you’re conditioned to do your thing, your way. But, for believers, John 15:5 doesn’t leave any room for that kind of thinking…

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

If you’re like me, you want a fruitful life, not one with lots of toil and little meaning. So, join me here at Vine Life Faith and discover how true life happens connected to Jesus, the true Vine.

Hi! I’m Vanessa, an inspirational content creator who authors books, writes blogs, and designs t-shirts that inform, encourage and inspire. I’m also a physician in two fields of medicine who gave it all up to stay home and raise my children.

But if you ask me who I am, I’ll tell you I’m a passionate girl from the Bronx who fell in love with Jesus. Vision and determination took me far, but His grace is the only reason I’ve done anything that matters.

And that’s what I share here. The goodness of Jesus to those who trust in Him, even when the journey makes no sense—like my meander from a pen and prescription pad to a keyboard and a mic!

I do this cheered on by my husband, and our three children, Jesus’ amazing expressions of grace to me. After traveling the country as a military family, we’re now retired and call the Houston area home.

Quite the journey for this girl from the Bronx.
