We had the good fortune of connecting with Mary Rudolph and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mary, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Creating Cool Faith Apparel that creates an easy why to share Faith and Start conversations about Jesus.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
TruVine established in 2013, licensed and trademarked brand. Created to inspire people to wear their faith and to remember to grow in the Vine. Our Foundation is built on John 15. Our obedience is the only way we show God how much we love Him. Our obedience is an reflection of our Faith in Jesus What sets us apart is we create timeless streetwear, it’s edgy,fashionable and fun. We our proud of how far we’ve come since 2013, creating better pieces with details. Our customers deserve it. How did you get to where you are today business-wise – prayer, patience, and persistence. The process isn’t easy, no business startup is….mistakes and trials are all apart of process. The only way to overcome struggle is to trust God and let Him lead. The main lesson is to be patient and to take time creating designs. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story? We our a Female Black Owned, Veteran Owned Small business. Everything is made to order and prayed for before you receive order. We pray wherever TruVine is worn it creates an opportunity to sow the seed of God’s word.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
To be honest we don’t hang out. Most of our Family is out of state. We our home bodies for the most part. With Covid 19 changing the dynamics of safety, we doubt we will hang out anywhere besides the TruVine Shop.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
