Hey! I’m Dana Marie.
I’m a Christ follower, speaker, singer-songwriter, blogger, founder of Hope Rises Ministries, and a gypsy soul. My mission is to inspire women to live as if they knew they were loved, to know their identity in Christ.
I love country music, cotton candy skies, and I’m a sucker for love stories!
This lifestyle blog is a swirl of various topics to inspire you to find joy in all things. You’ll find pieces on faith, perspective, music, fitness, fashion, travel anecdotes, relationship advice, girl talk and more!
In the pieces of my brokenness, Christ has taught me what it means to be redeemed. He has shown me the beauty that comes from allowing Him to lead my path. He has given me joy, freedom and hope in the middle of my desolation. I love Jesus with all my heart and I want everything that I am, everything that I do to be saturated with Him. This blog is a collage of me living out my identity in Him — as perfectly imperfect, priceless, strong, redeemed, free, and most of all – loved.
I currently live in Nashville, but I’m originally from Chicago. Besides Christ, my family is my greatest treasure. We’re messy and definitely not perfect, but I love us. I wrote this song, Roots + Wings, for them before I moved to Nashville. I love writing songs that give me butterflies, learning Italian, snowboarding, pancakes, road trips with the windows down + radio up, being an auntie, and Jesus. I want to bear His image with my whole life.
