Dani_Tietjen_654655467.pngAbove all things, Dani Tietjen is a storyteller. She loves stories that draw out our need for community, collaboration, and creative spirit. Stories much like our Hmong, African American, Somalian, and Mexican neighborhood kids who come to help plant the community garden and have designated it the "Friendship Garden". She has a passion and deep love for renewal on the local and global scale. Dani currently lives in North Minneapolis which is a highly diverse, underrepresented and racially-charged part of the city with my husband and three children. For more than a decade she has traveled to emerging countries with a focus on children and healthy programing. More than anything, Dani loves the complex nature of trying to reach across cultures, religions and economics gaps. These experiences have dramatically shaped her perspective on social justice and conflict. It is her desire to live a conscious life, which is an awareness of the steady unveiling of the deeper and richer truths that connect us not only to each other, but to the ever present Creator.
