Rebekah Van Pelt Dons A Cape Each Day To Redefine Herself


Rebekah Van Pelt — or The Brave One, as her cape reads — is a mother of 4 children who transformed the birthday gift of a cape into a daily uniform. She redefines herself with this comforting cloak, countering her childhood trauma. Sarah speaks with Rebekah about her unusual childhood and how she embraces a path to healing.

Rebekah Van Pelt is learning to embrace both the joyful and hard moments each day brings accompanied by her trusty red cape that reminds her who she is and not to take it all too seriously.
