THIS IS THE RECALIBRATED PODCAST
WITH MALLORY BROWN
Danielle Herzlich is an Army veteran, fitness expert, NFL wife and a survivor of abuse. In this podcast conversation, she opens up about the effect years of abuse in her formative years, as well as abusive relationships later in life, had on her. She also talks about healing, advocating for victims of abuse, parenting, adoption and surrendering to God.
“Healing is an ongoing journey,” she says.
She opens up about how she never felt angry at God for her past experiences because she was too busy just feeling angry in general. She credits her anger for actually drawing her near to God. She cites Ephesians 4:26, which says, “In your anger do not sin; Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry.”
Danielle says her mom has been her rock and was a light amidst darkness. “My mom showed me how to be the hands and feet of Jesus before I ever knew Him,” she says.
Danielle is part of a group of women who work out through Soulful Sweat. It’s open to any woman who desires regimen, accountability and encouragement.
She is also married to former NFL linebacker Mark Herzlich. Together they have two children: a son, Boston, and an adopted daughter, Joanie (Jet).
