Eva Daniel likes coffee, (and others like her better after she’s had a few cups!), she and her husband, Jacob, have two awesome boys, and a rambunctious puppy--which means everything in her house is either broken or smelly. Eva loves the great outdoors, and also the great indoors (as long as it involves shopping), has an affinity for fancy coffee, donuts, running, Taylor Swift, red lipstick, cooking, reading, the show Fixer Upper and traveling. She loves Jesus and believes the best way to engage others with truth is by first showing love. One of Eva's biggest passions is finding, developing great stories as a Senior Producer for the daily Focus on the Family radio program.
