Linebaugh Public Library is pleased to host local author Rebekah Hope for a book signing on Tuesday, December 15, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Hope will be signing copies of her book Beyond the Brokenness: The Adventurous Heart of an Amish Girl, independently published in 2019.

Rebekah Hope was born and raised by her Amish parents on a farm in Michigan. When she was 17 years old she ran away, leaving behind everything and everyone she had ever known and moved 100’s of miles away with only a few dollars in her pocket and the clothes on her back with no guarantee of survival. Depression, addiction, and battles with suicide had unknowingly been ruling her life since she was 8 years old. At 18 years old, Rebekah found herself in a place of mere destruction and brokenness that nearly took her life. Having no place else left to turn, she finally chose to turn to the only one that hadn’t left her from the beginning: Jesus Christ.

Recognizing that the only reason she is still alive today is because of God, Rebekah made a commitment to God that she would let Him lead her to the destiny he has waiting for her.

Today Rebekah is an advocate for helping people find the only True and lasting Joy and Freedom she has found in Christ Jesus. Having once been the person that was hopeless & desperate, Rebekah’s mission is to be a Voice of Hope to those that are where she once was.

With guidance and direction from the Holy Spirit Rebekah wrote a book called Beyond the Brokenness: The Adventurous Heart of an Amish Girl to help people better understand that no matter where you are, where you’ve been, what you’ve done or what’s been done to you in life, there is Hope. There is Hope for all!

Hope will be selling copies of Beyond the Brokenness: The Adventurous Heart of an Amish Girl for $15 apiece. Cash, PayPal, or Venmo are accepted.
