Rebecca Hauer is a believer in the radical love of God, the inherent worth of every person, and the power of words. After growing up in an abusive, cultish branch of the Christian church, Rebecca had every reason to abandon the faith. Fortunately for her, Yahweh is a God who pursues people all the way to the ends of the Earth (or, in Rebecca's case, a near-brush with suicide). Though it may seem at odds with her background, Rebecca adheres to a theology of peace that requires mercy and love for the abuser as well as the abused.
She is a passionate advocate for mental health, suicide prevention, and equality for all people. Rebecca is an amateur theologian and recently graduated from Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis with a Bachelor of Science in Civic Leadership.
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 lives in Central Indiana with her husband, Ian, and her beloved cat, Rory. Rebecca and Ian are members of Grace Church in Noblesville, IN.
