A Daily Miracle was launched in 2012 and publishes faith-based posts on various topics ranging from faith, arts, culture, media, health, and marketing to entertainment and international missions work. Most recently, in September 2019, my twin sister and I were diagnosed with breast cancer within 3 weeks of each other, at age 30. We both chose to be treated for our breast cancer(s) at Mayo Clinic's Breast Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and are so grateful we've been able to work with some of the best doctors in the world. Here are links to each of the posts so far:

My Breast Cancer Screening Journey (So Far)
In addition to coverage of our breast cancer journey, this blog features occasional interviews with influential Christian figures. Over the years, I published interviews with Justin Bieber's pastor Judah Smith, Hillsong United's frontman Joel Houston, tightrope-walking-Grand-Canyon-crossing-daredevil Nik Wallenda, and more. Sources for posts come from mainstream media outlets (the Chicago Tribune, Christianity Today, the Huffington Post, RELEVANT Magazine, etc.), in addition to first-person reporting and aggregation from around the world.
The goal of this blog is to bring the exuberant, optimistic, and passionate side of life to light: As St. Irenaeus said, "The glory of God is man fully alive."
