Hello friends, my name is Meredith McDaniel & this is a glimpse into my people. We live in the small college town of Davidson, North Carolina where life feels a little slower in the summer, but bustling with professors, students, and townies come Fall. My husband Ben is the Area Director for Lake Norman Young Life and we just celebrated 13 years of marriage & 18 years of doing this life together. We have 3 children:  Grady(10), Judah(7), & Ellis Jane(6) who I spend most of my waking hours wrangling around our home, neighborhood, and schools. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in NC-8254.


In my kid-free moments I am a writer & the primary counselor on staff at my local private practice, Milk + Honey Counseling. M+H serves families, couples, women, teens, & “hive” groups in the Lake Norman area who are longing to live and experience more full life here on earth.

I count it a gift & humbling privilege to get a front row seat listening to the stories of women of all ages & sometimes their other halves or teenagers on my counseling couch. As someone who began therapy myself in college, I cannot express the luxury it can be for us all in various seasons of life to sit with an unbiased professional to process this life. I hope you will find this space raw, real, & refreshing for your hungry souls. May we all learn to taste of the land of milk + honey as we gather together here to redeem our narratives in hopefully many years to come. May we meet together & find fuller life as the light cracks through.


Meredith has worked with college students, teenagers, & children in various settings over the past 15 years. In undergraduate school she earned a BA in Multidisciplinary Studies with a concentration in “Religious, Social, & Psychological Aspects of the Family”. Meredith picked a self-design major because she knew she wanted to attend graduate school to get her Masters in Christian Counseling. She graduated from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in 2010 & joined a well-established private practice in the following months where she went on to set up a satellite location in Davidson, NC. She has also served as the Lead Counselor with Inheritance of Hope, a ministry which serves families who have a parent with a terminal illness where she offered counseling services on retreats annually. In college & the early years of marriage she was on Young Life staff, a non-denominational ministry that focuses mainly on loving high school students relationally. She has been married for 8 years to Ben who remains on Young Life staff in the Lake Norman Area. They have 3 elementary aged children. Meredith says she could spend hours sitting & listening to the stories of individuals & feels called to enter into the quieter places of people’s lives in a safe setting to help others taste of the land of milk + honey.

  1. You have a very pretty blog! Your home town sounds a bit like mine, (though has a population of 25,000) as Armidale is known as a university town and really slows down over summer, but comes alive as soon as semesters back on! Lots of college kids around 🙂
