Each week, she interviews a new guest and takes on topics that include health, fitness, time management, work, homemaking, motherhood, marriage, parenting and practical spirituality.

Danielle speaks directly to the hearts of women in the trenches with great wisdom, wit and grace. I can’t recommend her highly enough.”
