Today we’d like to introduce you to Danielle Brison.
Hi Danielle, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
In 2008 while I was attending St. Louis Christian college completing my degree in Christian ministry, I knew that I wanted to have an effective position in the community I knew also that I wanted to find a ministry where we could continuously service and educate the community I knew that I wanted to focus on feeding families and trying to help people find ways to cope with anger management and stress so we encourage meditation it has definitely been a long journey but now we are in a position where we are growing fresh vegetables and herbs that we hopefully will be able to donate to them To families in need. We are also focusing on encouraging meditation. As a nonprofit, we have been looking for businesses to partner with us and donate items but due to Covid, we have been unsuccessful but we are not giving up on our dream.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There have been many, many obstacles. After graduating in 2011, I began to have some medical difficulties. I found out that I had epilepsy and fibromyalgia so it definitely took a different direction of every aspect of my life. And then in 2017, my mother became ill and I had to relocate back to Missouri so we are starting from the beginning. I have a full-time job and with that, I have been Investing in gardens so that we can complete the mission each day, I talk to people about the mission in hopes that they will spread the message so that we can help children in need in our community.
Are there any books, apps, podcasts or blogs that help you do your best?
My absolute favorite book is the Bible; it’s a guide for peace and tranquility. I am deep into any show about gardening restoration rehab. I watch a lot of news on MSNBC or CNN; we are very big on cultural diversity and creating an opportunity for people that don’t have an option. Once we can get things moving with the gardens and feeding families, we will work on our next mission which is tiny homes for the homeless.
