As Daniel sees it, the life of the mind is a close cousin to the life of the spirit. What makes sense to us intellectually effects our deepest convictions. Our “head knowledge” eventually sinks into what we just “know in our bones.” Daniel’s intellectual passion is to understand how God transforms our minds en route to changing our lives entire. Philosophy and theology are tools for spiritual renewal. They are ways of approaching the heart.
Since 1997, Daniel has been married to Karly Napier. They have two daughters, Rebeccah and Kristina, who fill their lives with adventure, some frustration, and endless joy.
Though some find it comical, Daniel has enthusiastically engaged in a number of strength sports over the years, including Highland Games, Powerlifting and Strongman. Today, he regularly trains and competes in Olympic Style Weightlifting. For the past two years, he has won the Texas State Championship in the 105kg Masters division. Along the way, he has set six Texas State records, made lots of friends, and thoroughly enjoyed stretching the limits of the body God gave him.
