So, what’s this site all about?
This blog is ALL about equipping you on living by Christ’s life so you can have a deeper faith and a thriving marriage, and leave a lasting impact on this world.
Through my years in ministry, outreach, counseling, coaching and training this is what I have come to learn: Your life is like a 3 tiered waterfall.
What happens in your personal life (mentally, physically, spiritually, and emotionally), will pour directly into your marriage, and what happens there pours directly into the rest of your life, and determines how you interact with the world around you.
Where the waterfall starts
I am a firm believer that as followers of Jesus, we can’t live the Christian life.
Yes, you heard me right, Paul tells us in Galatians 2:20,
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
This means Jesus must actually live that Christian life for us, and through us. He is the well-spring of life, and His life dwells in us. He is the one that helps us have deeper faith, thrive in our marriages, and make it through this life. We actually have to allow that living water to flow through us and out of us; we have to live by His life.
I want to show you how to do that.
Faith: In the faith category I will discuss deeper theological questions as well as practical application on how to go deeper in your walk with the Lord.
Marriage: In the marriage category I discuss exactly that, marriage. I approach it from the grander eternal understanding of what marriage represents to help you build a thriving Christ centered marriage.
Life: In the life category I discuss topics such as parenting, relevant news topics and how to approach them from a Biblical world view, all with the goal of helping you leave a lasting impact on your world.
Reviews: In this category I share reviews of books, products, and services to help you in your walk with Christ, your marriage, and in this world.
Mini-posts: The mini-posts are not emailed to you. – These include the quotes, photos, links, books, and audios I share. They show up in the regular blog feed, but you can view all of those HERE.
Who is this guy & Why should I listen to him?!
I was born right outside Chicago, but now reside in Texas with my wife Amber and 2 dogs, Paul and Silas. My wife and I have a crazy story of our marriage, which I reference quite often in posts.
I am a writer, speaker, ordained pastor, personal trainer, and entrepreneur. I have a B.S. in Church Ministries and Christian Education, and an M.A. in Bible and Theology. I also hold a whole slew of various personal training certifications, as that is currently my full time job. I will begin my Master’s of Divinity (Mdiv), a post graduate degree, in the fall of 2016 with a specialization in counseling.
I love being active: working out, martial arts, mountain biking, hiking, hunting, camping, and walking my dogs.
But what drives me is I am passionate about equipping people to go deeper in their walk with the Lord, helping couples build thriving marriages, and helping other believers understand how to interact with the world around them with a Biblical worldview so they can leave a lasting impact. I believe the greatest impact comes as a result of excellence in your walk with the Lord and your marriage.
But, this blog isn’t really about me. It’s all about helping and equipping you.

I’ve known Daniel for many years and have watched him grow into an awesome man of God. I truly enjoy reading his blogs about his journey in Faith, Marriage and Life. I have 3x the years of marriage with my husband as Daniel has with Amber but he offers such great ideas on how to relate to your spouse. It’s great to have a “fresh” perspective! Daniel has faced highs and lows in his life but he is an overcomer and shares his stories and life events so that everyone can relate. Such an encourager!Patti
I have read the material at danielpassini.org several times now in my constant quest for knowledge on matters of religion, and marriage advice. I have a psychology degree with a Christian counseling concentration and I find the material to be top notch in my opinion. I have referred friends looking for advice to this material as well. The articles and blogs written here provide real world practical advice written by someone who walks what he talks. I have appreciation for someone who not only gives advice but heeds their own as well. Keep the articles and blogs coming!Josh
