Brand Manager for CatholicMom, Holy Cross Family Ministries

Danielle Bean, a wife and mother of eight, is the Brand Manager for CatholicMom at Holy Cross Family Ministries. Former publisher for "Catholic Digest", Danielle is also creator and host of "The Gist", a weekly Catholic women’s television talk show in production of its seventh season on CatholicTV. Danielle is author of several books, "Momnipotent" (Ascension Press 2014), a book, a parish study, and a movement to reclaim a vocation that helps women find peace, balance, and joy in their roles as mothers. Her most recent book is a study of women in the Gospels entitled "You’re Worth It! Change How You Feel About Yourself by Discovering How Jesus Feels About You". Danielle has a special heart for mothers, particularly those who struggle. She encourages women of all ages and stages of life to find humor in daily challenges and the joy God intends for every one of us. It is in her primary vocation to marriage and motherhood that Danielle finds the inspiration for all of her work.
