Who is she?
Me writing about me….seriously?? How do you write about yourself when you are still trying to figure yourself out? Lol. So far this is what I know…
I am a spit fire. I can be goofy at times. I can be serious when need to. I am a lover of Jesus. Totally loyal and trustworthy. Persistent to a fault. I am wife to an amazing man and teammate in life, Brian, and a mother of two tenacious children, Dillon and Stella. (Oh, and I love our dog, Polly, too!)
I absolutely love mornings; it’s my favorite time of day! I love my quiet time, a time of reflection, the peace and quiet of the start of a new day. I hear from my Maker a lot during this time.
I love taking care of my family. I love my home and I try to make it welcoming. We love entertaining and do it frequently-like a lot. (Did I mention people are always in my home?)
I have tenacity for life and enjoy spending time with women that inspire me to be a better person. I am completely comfortable in my own skin and I learned a long time ago that “being ME” is important because everyone else in the world is taken!
I am a better giver than receiver. I love to give and give and need to work on that other end —receiving, I think it’s called.
I tend to mess up the pronunciation of my words —yup —it’s actually pretty comical. My friends and family have now started calling them “Danielleisms”.
I love to celebrate birthdays and believe that everyone should be absolutely spoiled on that day! I mean —c’mon —you were born on that very day! If you know me you have either had a personal serenade, balloons delivered to your house or as we do it in the DeSmit household: full out décor in the house.
I love to shop but dislike the mall! Lol. Yup —true story! My sweet spot is boutique shopping, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls.
I am a native of Grand Rapids, Michigan. I went to Hope College (loved it), played on the women’s basketball team, and graduated with a Business Administration degree. I guess you could say I have a passion for sales (over 15 years’ worth!). I have had experience selling everything from windshields to pharmaceutical drugs to jewelry and have been a personal recruiter for medical device companies.
At the end of the day, all this stuff is fine and good and yummy and amazing, but truly who I am and what I am about is: a woman, a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, and a friend who is in love with Jesus. Knowing that I am Free to Be radiant, chosen, changed, worthy, and His. I am Free-Crowned Free.
