    MLK and Why We Should Make a Career of Humanity

    MLK and Why We Should Make a Career of Humanity

    In a speech to thousands of Black students at the Youth March for Integrated Schools, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. issued a challenge as they considered their futures: “Make a career of humanity. Commit yourself to the noble struggle for equal rights. You will make a greater person of yourself, a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in.”

    Through the complexities of naviating race discussions in 2022, during a season that many would consider an attack on racial progress (and a backlash from 2020), how can we dedicate ourselves to making a career of humanity, building a more equitable world, and continuing to advocate for the overlooked today? In this episode, through practical tips and a few stories, Danielle shares a way we can all put this idea into action - for every person, in every industry, and every walk of life.

    When Holidays are Hard: 3 Ways to Lend a Hand

    When Holidays are Hard: 3 Ways to Lend a Hand

    While the winter holiday season brings joy to many, it’s also a source of grief and sorrow for countless others. As people who seek to live a life of hope, empathy, and loving others well, it’s natural to want to lend a helping hand to those who need that extra support and care during seasons like this one, whether in winter-time or any other holiday season throughout the year. However, this is something that’s gotta be done with intentionality and care.

    In this episode, I’m sharing 3 practical ways to lend a hand to someone who’s experiencing difficulties during not only the winter holiday season, but any other holiday that might be tough for them. I’ll also share a posture, or perspective, that we can adopt as we carry out these actions so that our impact is more likely to match our intent.

    A Love that Lives: The Ultimate Good, Your Neighbors, and You

    A Love that Lives: The Ultimate Good, Your Neighbors, and You

    Welcome to the first episode of the For the Ultimate Good podcast! In this episode, I set the stage for the future of the podcast and my heart behind it all.

    The idea of “loving my neighbor well” and “pursuing the ultimate good” have been guiding lights for me in this season. And I’m sure that echoes your heart’s cry as well. But when you say that you love your neighbor, do you mean it? What is this “love” that we’re referring to? Is this a placating phrase aimed to eliminate tension and signal passivity? Or is it a transformative force that calls us into the uncomfortable and helps us wade through it? Let’s talk about it.

Will make you smile AND stir your soul

Danielle does it again: speaks truth through love but this time straight to your headphones. After listening to her heart warming yet thought provoking messages, you will not be able to walk away without wanting to make a more positive impact on our world :)

Danielle is a beast!

I love this podcast so much. The creativity, truth-telling w/ grace and just the lovely tone of it all. This is how redemptive activism and justice is displayed.
