A Conversation on Mental Illness and Suicide with DawnCheré Wilkerson and Kayla Stoecklein
In a powerful conversation on life, loss, and mental health, Pastor DawnCheré Wilkerson interviews special guest Kayla Stoecklein.

Kayla openly shares her story of redemption and hope in the midst of tragedy, the death by suicide of her husband Pastor Andrew Stoecklein. Andrew who, with a deep love for family and a passion for ministry, did not seem a likely candidate for such a heartbreaking end will always be remembered by Kayla for the way he lived and not the way he died.

Kayla serves notice to us all that we shouldn’t allow our secrets to be our downfall, that if we’re struggling, to let someone know. We’re loved and valued by God and he has a great plan for our lives. Through any trial we may face, God’s got it.
