Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m Danielle Bernock.

Author. Tribe Writer. Wife. Mom. Mima (aka grandma). CEO 4F Media.

Writing and publishing my first book* changed my life.

I’d been a Christian for many years but unresolved childhood traumas, and lies that I believed trapped me in a mindset of unworthiness.

Through counseling and writing, I processed my childhood and reevaluated my beliefs. Bringing the lies and emotional traumas out into the light brought the validation and healing I desperately needed.

As I looked back I saw things I’d missed because I’d been blinded by pain. I saw where LOVE attempted to insert Himself in my life but was hindered by various things.

I’d always struggled with feeling worthy of love by anyone. There was always something I had to do to earn it or keep it from leaving. It was conditional. I was never enough all by myself. But the LOVE I saw pursuing me was different. In my book, I lovingly refer to this LOVE as The Pursuer, who is a person, not a thing.

I use the term God sparingly because it’s been dragged through the mud and much harm has been done using it. I know this first hand and it angers me. The God I know is not some tyrant in the sky. Power-thirsty people have fabricated that view to exact control over others. The God I know is LOVE. The God I know is safe.

I no longer struggle with feeling worthy of love. I know I am deeply loved as is. Knowing this has revolutionized my life. I want others to know this and be empowered by it.

And so, I write.

An important lesson I’ve learned and pass along to others.

*More about my story


My story is one of inner healing and emancipation from inner misery and bondage through the power of love. It’s validating and encouraging. It’s emotional and spiritual. Reading it will bring you freedom.

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 Pain, Lies, And The LOVE that Heals

4F Media is my writing, publishing, and marketing company. It is legally registered under my company REFRESH Custom Painting LLC. Self-publishing a book is no small endeavor. When I completed the writing process of my first book Emerging With Wings I learned how much I needed to learn. One of these things is the ISBN. I could have received one free through Createspace. But because I chose self-publishing to fully own my work, I needed to own the ISBN as well. Discovering I could choose to purchase 1 or 10 (not 2), I chose 10 so I could publish more. Wanting a more professional imprint than simply my name 4F Media was born. The 4 F’s stand for Faith, Family, Friends, Freedom. These things are near and dear to my heart and will always be a part of what I write (media).

  1. Danielle, I think your blog is very calming and gentle. It definitely matches your theme of comfort and love. Your post titles are eye-catching and I love all the pictures you choose. They make up a very unified and solid picture of what this site is all about. Great job!

  2. We emailed each other late last year as common Tribe Writers. So far very little has happened with my blog livelifeafterfifty.com. After reading your blog I was astounded at how well you have implemented the various suggestions from Jeff Goins on how to create an effective blog.

    Not only is the format etc. very well done but the content is both effective, personal and very helpful. I, like so many others am currently struggling with various life and emotional battles.

    I look forward to your future and past blogs as well as your book for emotional guidance and will give you feedback as best I can.

    Keep up the excellent work and thank you for caring.

    1. Hey there John!
      Thank you. Thank you so much. I appreciate the feedback.
      If there is something specific you would like me to address, please let me know.

    1. You’re most welcome, Colleen. Thank you for your kind words and being a part of this awesome community.

  3. Danielle, when I read your writing, I am always floored by the level of depth of a topic. The question I always ask myself when I read it is, what well of knowledge does she draw from? #fanforlife #alwaysgoodstuff. John

    1. Thank you, John.

      I’ve always been a deep thinker and feeler and it got me into trouble at times. Through the power of love and grace I’ve found a way to make use of it.

      Thank you for sharing. I learn from my readers as much as they learn from me. #healinghappenstogether

        1. I understand.

          Like I wrote in my article 2 Kinds of Self-Care There’s an entire world going on inside of each and every one of us that many never pay attention to. You and I are people who are very aware of that inner world. Not paying attention to it isn’t an option if we want to be healthy inside.
