Hi there! Welcome!
My name is Danielle Womack. I have a million and one nicknames, but most in my circle at this phase of my life call me “D” (mostly because it is a short abbreviation of Danielle when texting and emailing) and my nephews named me “Dee Dee” hence the inspiration for the title of this blog, “His D-light.” In this space I plan to shed light on my testimony, story, be a place of light, a place where we cling to His Word, and take steps closer to Jesus and His plan for our lives in transparency and community.
I am not a native of Birmingham, but have called Birmingham home for over a decade. Home will always be tucked in the SouthEast corner of Alabama, the city and people of Dothan. However, Birmingham has been fertile ground for me since 2006. I fell in love with Samford University at the age of 18, and have been chasing my dreams in Birmingham ever since. I have experienced a lot of life and lessons in Birmingham, which is what I am looking forward to sharing with you here at His D-Light.
I married my wonderful husband and love of my life, Brandon, in 2012 and have two beautiful children, 5 year old son, Braxton Stone and, 2 year old daughter, Jade Karis. God has truly blessed me with my family and the people in my life far beyond what I deserve and greater than I could have imagined, and the city of Birmingham and our home church, Church of the Highlands, has been the foundation we have built our lives and love on.
For those of you who are personality junkies like me, I think it is important for you to know with whom you are speaking; I am an ENFP/2w3. For those of you who are not as familiar with that means I am a bit of a free spirit. I am a go getter. I love to dream and bet against the odds. I think out-loud; which means I say more than I should, and I have to apologize for not thinking before I speak… a lot. After a conversation I will play the words exchanged over and over and over again in my head, hoping I did not offend or worse discourage the person with whom I was speaking. I thrive on social and emotional connections. I spend far too much time reordering my task list and debating on which I should do first, or pondering on the intent for making the list and the purpose and meaning behind each item. When I get fresh vision that inspires me, my husband and close friends can attest, there little that can stop me from pursuing that vision, even with all cards stacked against me.
That being said, I am really excited to share with you the purpose and vision behind this space… 2020 being the year of 20/20 vision has me fired up. I had the most radical 21 days of prayer and fasting. I cannot wait to share it with you. I pray and fast with my church twice every year (and intermittently as needed throughout the year), but this year was by far the most powerful, coming in only second to the year I got married, which is a journey I plan to share here as well. My hope is that this would be a place where you can come to get a fresh word and be encouraged. God placed it on my heart to share my story almost a decade ago, and this is the year of transparency, and for personally for me, the year of radical obedience.
The vision behind this space is not to be another link where you can mindlessly scroll, looking at the photos and bullet points. This is a place where we dive deep… together. I plan to have featured writers to also share their stories, and I will be looking for feedback from you all on what you’d like to read about, where you are struggling and how I can be praying for you. Yes, this will essentially be a small group that you can participate in as your time permits. The goal here is to encourage and engage.
So get ready, we are about to dive in. We are going where the Lord takes us, together, one step at a time: reading, writing, laughing, loving and building relationships every step of the way. I am excited to seek and walk the journey God has in store for us in 2020.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. – 1 John 1:7
