EP 79: When You Choose Your Own Name: Danielle Bernock: Part Two

Diana WinklerPhysical Violence

More love from Danielle Bernock this week! We have Part Two of my conversation with her. We find out why she decided to choose her own name and what people thought of that. We talk about how to heal childhood trauma, which can take longer to heal. Did you know you can suffer from trauma for years and not even know it? Danielle tells us the story of how challenging it was to write her first book. She gives us great advice on how to give ourselves some much needed love! There were so many gold nuggets in this interview(That’s why I had a Part Two)! Don’t miss it!

The Passion Bible translation was mentioned(not related to the movie).


Danielle Bernock founded 4F Media (Faith, Family, Friends, Freedom) in 2014 to promote inner healing and personal freedom through the power of ‘The LOVE that heals’, using all forms of media, beginning with her first book.

The following quote from the book has gone viral:

“Trauma is personal. It does not disappear if it is not validated. When it is ignored or invalidated the silent screams continue internally heard only by the one held captive. When someone enters the pain and hears the screams healing can begin.”
― Danielle Bernock, Emerging With Wings: A True Story of Lies, Pain, And The LOVE that Heals
