At age 17, Becca Mundt encountered the hard side of life when she experienced rejection and ridicule from her peers at a new school. Thoughts of depression, loneliness and suicide clouded her thinking, and the joyfulness that had characterized her life growing up as a pastor’s kid faded.

One night God gave Rebecca a vision that transformed her when God called her name in wholeness, encouragement and healing. She has since learned the importance of helping others listen as God calls their names.

Pastors, counselors and lay leaders need to face the staggering reality of loneliness in our congregations and neighborhoods. Rebecca challenges leaders to step out of silence and begin to speak life to hurting people. The practical steps she suggests will no doubt save the lives of countless people who struggle with isolation and depression and release them into the hope found only in Jesus.
