Is Life

living you?

let’s explore simple, timeless principles, that pave the way to
more freedom, more direction and less brain fog.

Fresh off the press

Buried under life?



You’re very intelligent and creative but stuck under an overwhelming pile of the necessary.
But you haven’t taken a moment for yourself to stop, breathe and reflect on who you are or what you actually want.
You crave abundance, satisfaction, and momentum.
When you get to help others your heart beats a little faster .


There is a battle going on and you’re on the forefront of it, fighting to keep control over your own life… and you know what?
You’re going to win.


That’s where I can help.

I’m Dani

I left my home country of Canada and ran away with an (exotic) German man – who has turned out to be a pretty fantastic husband. Together, we have 4 very lively children (eight and under). I know firsthand what it’s like to be wading through the muck of life trying to find clarity and focus.

For years I’ve rebelled against structures, healthy habits, goals (I still cringe at writing those words).

Simply put, ignoring these things won’t work!



I’m Dani.

Canadian born, living in Germany, with my very German husband and four rambunctious kiddos.

When I’m not chasing after my 1 1/2 year old so he doesn’t run onto the road,
I’m running a loud homeschool, doing mundane but glorious household tasks, drinking coffee, reading, learning on Udemy and sleeping.


Are you a creative dreamer like me?


I have a firm faith that intertwines, and holds together everything I write here. With God, the impossible IS an option.

So join me on Live Lived Intentionally where we can think deeply, to dream big, to learn constantly, and to share generously!

So if you like that, we’re going to get along just fine.

We are going to learn to be proactive and look at the person as a whole. Here you will learn with me how to develop healthy life structures that bring freedom and passion to explore, and dive deep into our natural, creative potential.
