Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Danielle … redeemed and wildly loved by a Savior who’s teaching me that real isn’t perfect.


In fact, I’m learning that being real is quite messy.

Before Jesus I spent most of my time concealing pain from my past or hiding my sin sick, self-inflicted wounds. By the time I gazed into the eyes of Jesus, everything I had to offer was wrecked, ruined, stained or broken.

But that was all He asked for.

Jesus didn’t need me to clean up my act so I could walk with Him.  He took me as I was, but He didn’t leave me there.

Because of Christ I’ve discovered that being real is hard and invariably more beautiful than perfect. It’s a great deal more satisfying, too.

Outside of Jesus, my family is my greatest joy.

Occasionally, I’ll write about our crazy life together. I never know how He’s going to show up from day-to-day, but He always shows off!

My prayer for you? No matter what brings you this way, I hope that you leave here a little more encouraged than when you arrived. One things for certain, if you stick around long enough (and I sure hope you do) you’ll see that the only thing I’m sure of?

Apart from God, I can do nothing.

With Him, I can do all things (Philippians 4:13).  

No matter how ruined, wrecked, stained or broken my offering is…


Can I tell you something?

He loves you, too. And He can take your mess and make it His masterpiece.


Your comments are a blessing to me. I receive each one with gratitude.
