Hi! I’m Dannielle.
My friends call me ‘D’.
I’m genuinely grateful to connect with you here.
I founded Be You and Thrive in 2016, initially as a personal blog. A door opened and I began interviewing women from all over the world, who shared their stories with me and gave me permission to share them with you. There was such joy from each woman who shared their triumph through difficulty and also resonating feedback from all the women’s lives being touched, who read these stories. This was the beginning that led to several special years of connecting with others.
New resources began developing as the blog expanded into things like the launch of The Practice of Living as we Intend podcast, downloadable resources and also speaking to women one-on-one, as well as in conference format. The number of private conversations and developed connections, are too numerous to count.
Humbly, BY&T has impacted many lives—including my own.
My effort with this platform is fully, a message from my heart. And I believe God-given. If you’ve ever done something that effortlessly flowed—you know what it feels like and I encourage you to share this work for the benefit of others.
Four years later (2020), there are numerous resources from BY&T on the blog, on social media and podcast—each encouraging an exploration of the deeper things in life—that will no doubt, create movement from the inside, out.
It has been a pure joy, blessing and undefinable season of creative development and I can’t thank you enough for being on this journey with me.
I hope you enjoy using this website, reading the many stories and interviews, downloading the practical worksheets and listening to the podcast episodes. I believe each will continue to offer hope and renewal to those who are investing time to discover more.
Life is short, it’s wonderful and also difficult. Yet, if you’re willing to do the work, there are untapped gifts within you and resources from what you have uniquely experienced, just waiting to be awakened—each allowing you to live to your unique fullest and thrive!
Be you and thrive!
Big love always,
