Nothing’s for Nothing: Transformation through Trauma with the author Rebekah Demirel

Join us for a rich and soulful evening with trauma expert, Rebekah Demirel, as she reads from her memoir, Nothing’s for Nothing – Transformation Through Trauma, with an open discussion on healing childhood trauma and family relationships.

Doors will open at 6: 30 p.m. Cash donations at the door gladly accepted for Our Place Therapeutic Recovery Community



In her haunting memoir, Nothing’s for Nothing, Rebekah Demirel reveals a childhood of adversity and neglect, beginning at age three when her mother fled the violence of their home, through her years growing up in a chaotic and abusive household with her Pentecostal father and violent older brother, until leaving home at age thirteen for an uncertain life on the streets. Rebekah takes us on a soulful journey of heartbreak, loss and grief, her own difficult homeless teen years, and the resiliency gained from those experiences, with inspiring messages of hope, healing, forgiveness and personal transformation.

Copies of the book will be available for sale during the event.
