He Heard Hannah
In an amazing true story, two lives are inexorably interwoven. Courtney Becker, a 911 dispatcher, took a routine call on November 19, 2004. The call for help came from a man whose young daughter was in cardiac arrest. Courtney was destined to receive that call, and that little girl became part of spiritual journey.
He Heard Hannah is an incredibly inspiring story of spiritual perseverance and life changing hope. God’s purpose is undeniably seen through the miraculous events that are told in this book, and it illuminates the biblical truth that “we know that all things work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
“A powerfully touching story of God at work in the midst of grief and heartache. You’ll be inspired, blessed, and infused with hope.”

Heart of the Story
I never knew Anna, yet her life and her death have impacted my life beyond words.
In 2007 and 2008 as we struggled through surgery after surgery with our little girl, Emily, Anna’s parents, Kyle and Lynnette Kraft, walked beside us, recounting their own numerous hospital stays with Anna. They brought us food and comfort. They offered respite and normalcy in a sterile world. We sang and laughed and lived the best we could.
The morning Emily passed away, I dialed Lynnette’s number through tears and raw emotion. I will never forget her scream on the other end of the line as she grieved for us as only a mother who knows exactly how painful it is to lose a child can.
It was Kyle and Lynnette who drove us home that bitter February day. It was Kyle and Lynnette who gave voice to what we needed to plan a funeral, to plan a life without our precious daughter. But Anna taught them how to minister to us.
But we are not the only ones Kyle and Lynnette have ministered to. There are countless others, including the 911 dispatcher who took their call the night their daughter died. He Heard Hannah is that story.
