We had the good fortune of connecting with Daphine Bush and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Daphine, what advice would you give to someone who feels like they are facing insurmountable odds?
When I think about all that has transpired in my life and all that I was able to overcome, I can tell anyone facing hardship that there IS light at the end of the tunnel! Never give up!!! If you can find just ONE person who has overcome something you are facing…and I’m sure you can, then YOU can overcome! You can find remnants of hope in the victories of those who walked this path before you. I’ve learned going through life that with every single opposition there is ALWAYS a built in blessing or opportunity! Our response to the challenges we face will determine whether what we face will be a step back or the catalyst to launch us forward into our destiny.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Well, for starters I am a content creator and chief editor of Simplydaph.com. I’m also a wife and mother of 3 beautiful children. I’m most proud of taking the step to finally pursue my aspirations of becoming a blogger. Starting my blog has afforded me the opportunity to connect and impact the lives of a plethora of women across the world to be courageous and walk in the true confidence that only comes from being connected to God himself and knowing their true worth and value. A life without God is a life without HOPE. I promote fashion and lifestyle content but no matter what I do it will reflect my relationship with God and my dedication to HIM. Even in my fashion content you will find integrity, class and a representation of my core values which include modesty, faith and love for all people. My mantra is “style is not void of class and integrity but rather it encompasses such”.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would say if I had to show my best friend a good time, this would consist of taking her to one of my favorite restaurants, which is The Capital Grille. They have some amazing grilled salmon and roasted Brussels! I’d also love to take her to one of my favorite places to go, no matter the day or time….that’s Church. It’s a place where I find freedom, fellowship and FUN. The people there are kind, loving, talented, and eager to connect with others. She would have a great time there. I am a worship leader so she would get to experience a worship service that I know she’d never forget. I also love to go to the spa, or the nail salon for relaxation. So I’d book us appointments at Trellis Day Spa. One of my favorite places for a quick tasty treat is Cold Stone! My fave dish is the Founder’s Favorite! Omg!!!! It’s delish! Lastly I’d take her to one of my favorite staycation spots here in Houston, The Hotel Alessandra! That place is GORGEOUS! The aesthetics are out of this world! I know she would enjoy her stay there. I don’t drink or go out so these aren’t things I’d have on the itinerary but I don’t think she’d be void of a good experience here in Houston without these things.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I have had so many people that played a part in my success thus far but there is one individual that I want to recognize. Her name is @dejbreone. She has been such an encouragement to me on this journey. I am so grateful for her willingness to assist me in so many ways when I needed help. Not only has she supported me in words, but also in deeds. I’m forever grateful for her insight and for sharing her expertise in web design and technology to help me improve in this aspect of my business.
