WOWSEPT18Soul On Fire, Inspirational Speaker “Beauty From Ashes”

Guest Speaker: Danette Haag
Danette is a wife and mother of 4 children. She lives in Windsor, Colorado with her family and loves playing in beautiful Colorado outdoors. She is an established business owner with her husband Mike; an inspirational speaker, a registered nurse, and a competitive runner.

As an inspirational speaker, Danette uses her 37 years of valuable, personal experiences from living through and living with a severe childhood burn injury. Inspiring others to see their own greatness by sharing all that she has learned from walking with courage, healing her soul, and growing her faith.

Soul On Fire is based on the idea that scars are scars. That everyone has been hurt by something or someone; leaving scars behind as a result.

Danette shares her personal message in order to inspire others to move beyond their own life challenges and walk in peace, courage, and strength.
