I love this podcast!

I can’t say enough about how much I love this podcast. Danielle covers so many great and relevant topics with such great tips, tricks, inspiration and awesome guests. She is like a very wise friend! Love it so much!

Better than a cup of tea to lift me up

And I'm a tea addict..loose leaf. Danielle is so real, honest, funny, encouraging, uplifting and the list of adjectives goes on. She has been my 'go to' usually on Tuesdays when I'm making supper and the rest of the family know I am NOT to be disturbed. It's been so interesting though to see the occasional teenage boy meander through the kitchen from time to time on the pretense of getting a glass of water or looking in the fridge for something but not finding it....some of Danielle's gems apparently reach even further than to just us women, wives, and mums!! Even if you are not a catholic I would encourage you to listen in because there is much practicality, wisdom, and peace to be gained in listening to this podcast.

Love it!

I love this podcast! I was cautious from the title as I wasn’t sure if it was going to an in-your-face, high-pitches squeely, podcast, but it is most certainly not. It just the thing I didn’t know I needed in my days! I had no idea Danielle Bean was the author of Momnipotent or Small Steps for Catholic Moms (although her name sounded oddly familiar to me 🤔). Once I realized who is doing this podcast, game over, I am hooked! I love how her writing is like reading a story and this podcast is like sitting down and listening to a friend. Forget binge watching Netflix, I’m binge listening to this podcast!
