Rebecca Hauer has been a writer since she learned how to hold a pen. 1990s-Gospel music convinced her at the age of 5 that she wanted to be a pastor. A miraculous encounter with God in 2015 changed the way she saw herself and the world.
Rebecca is a survivor of 19 years of domestic violence and spiritual abuse, and lives with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and chronic depression.
She is a passionate advocate for mental health, suicide prevention, and equality for all people. Rebecca is currently studying at Luther Seminary in an accelerated, two-year Master of Divinity program.
When she's not writing or loudly engaging others in conversation, Rebecca can be found attempting to re-create episodes of "Chopped" in her kitchen or trying to keep her plants alive. She married the love of her life in 2014 and has been the human servant of a tabby cat named Rory since 2016.
Controversial clarity: LGBT+ affirming. Feminist. Womanist theology is the theology of Jesus. Black Lives Matter. The Bible is inspired, not inerrant.
