Depth Podcast Episode 49: Fear Gone Wild — Kayla Stoecklein
This week is National Suicide Prevention Week and the podcast is discussing Kayla Stoecklein’s new book, *Fear Gone Wild: A Story of Mental Illness, Suicide, and Hope Through Loss. If you are not familiar with her story, sadly, her husband, Andrew, died by suicide two years ago. Now, Kayla has become an advocate for mental health by spreading awareness and offering hope as she vulnerably shares her story.
Suicide and Mental illness are not discussed much, so I am thankful to Kayla for helping give voice to this important subject. She shares the myths of suicide and how to help someone walking through depression. She honestly talks about her wilderness season and how God has helped her thrive even in the middle of it. Lastly, she gives an amazing illustration of grief and pain to help those who are walking through loss.
I promise you do not want to miss the truth she shares.
Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Kayla’s book,*Fear Gone Wild. All the details are on my website, jodirosser.com or you can click direct link below: https://jodirosser.com/giveaways/fear-gone-wild-book-giveaway/
In August of 2018, Kayla lost her husband, Andrew – pastor of Inland Hills Church in Chino, California – to suicide. In the wake of the tragedy, she embarked on a brave journey to better understand his harrowing battle with mental illness and, ultimately, to overcome the stigma of suicide.
With a clear-eyed acknowledgment of how misguided and misinformed she was about mental illness, Kayla Stoecklein shares her story in hopes that anyone walking through the wilderness of mental illness will be better equipped for the journey and will learn to put their hope in Jesus through it all.
