Author Bio

Dena Yohe has been a social worker, pastor's wife, and Cru staff member. She is the mother of Renee´Yohe Yohe, the suicidal, addicted, depressed, self-harming girl whose situation led friends to start the well-known nonprofit To Write Love on Her Arms. Renee’s life was also portrayed in the 2015 Sony Pictures release by the same name. Dena is an avid blogger. She and her husband, Tom, have three grown children, enjoy being grandparents, and live in Orlando, Florida.

Endorsements

"Dena Yohe transparently and compassionately offers God-centered, biblically grounded help and hope to parents in crisis. She shares what she has learned on her journey and reminds every parent that in the midst of the pain, you are not alone." - BOB LEPINE, co-host of FamilyLife Today

"Parents of prodigals often wrestle with feelings of profound loneliness and alienation. In her moving account, Dena Yohe offers encouraging reminders that countless other parents have been there too. Her wise and compassionate advice is sure to comfort and uplift many hurting moms and dads." - JIM DALY, president of Focus on the Family

"This honest book is full of Dena's wisdom, experience, and compassion. Her daughter's story has helped thousands of young people believe that no matter the circumstances they're not alone and recovery is possible. I have no doubt that Dena's perspective will do the same for parents." - JAMIE TWORKOWSKI, founder of To Write Love on Her Arms and New York Times best-selling author of If You Feel Too Much

"Ms. Yohe's writing echoes in the deepest chamber of my parent-heart because she teaches me how much parent-love hurts, breaks, then heals, and-ultimately- molds us into people who can be deeply engaged in the Spirit of God. While there is no doubt that I will be using this book in my clinical counseling practice, I can also imagine that there is a hungry and vast readership that has been longing to hear from an author who understands the grit it takes to hope for a better tomorrow. She teaches us parents to 'starve our fears and feed our faith' with practical ways to grieve and respond to the difficult issues. What a vital resource!" - MARY ELLEN MANN, LCSW, president of Last Battle and Mann Counseling Group

"Having a child or family member struggling with things like addiction or depression can lead to so many painful days and hopeless nights. These are often places we feel so alone, but Dena and her family have been there and their words are such a gift. This is not a book of quick fixes but of practical wisdom from someone who has been down those dark roads. Dena (and ReneƩ) have the unique ability to offer real help with beautiful compassion, for both you and your child. This book is a wonderful resource of direction, clarity, courage, and hope. It will be a wonderful resource of not just steps in coping but also movements toward healing." - AARON MOORE, licensed mental health counselor, founder of Solace Counseling, and speaker for To Write Love On Her Arms

"You Are Not Alone is a powerful resource written by a mom who learned how to live through her daughter's cutting, drug addiction, and depression. Her story gives Christian parents permission to be honest with their anguish, guilt, shame, and fear, but also gives them tools so they don't get lost in their child's poor choices. One of the most helpful chapters teaches how parents love their wayward child yet emotionally detach. You will learn to stop enabling, covering, or protecting, and to trust God with your child's future without forsaking your own." - LESLIE VERNICK, LCSW, relationship coach, speaker, and author of The Emotionally Destructive Marriage and The Emotionally Destructive Relationship

"I've walked with Dena Yohe through much of her journey with ReneƩ, and she tells that story so well, so passionately, so gently, so truthfully, so hopefully. You can feel the pain she endured and the fear she survived. Gratefully she lets us in on lessons learned, where to go for help for yourself and your prodigal, and how to hold tight to your child with love and grace. If you love a prodigal, you will be so thankful for this book." - JUDY DOUGLASS, office of the president of Cru, founder of Prayer for Prodigals and Worldwide Prodigal Prayer Day, and author of Letters to My Children: Secrets of Success

"The dark years of my son's heroin addiction and imprisonment changed not only his life but mine as well. In her riveting debut book, You Are Not Alone, Dena Yohe gives us a mother's powerful perspective on pain and suffering viewed through the lens of God's sovereignty and purpose-it is healing salve for a wounded heart." - ALLISON BOTTKE, best-selling author of Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children and the Setting Boundaries series

    I highly recommend this book for anyone who has a troubled teen or family member. If you don't know where to turn, then turn the pages of this book. It has helped my whole family. It is a true story that is easy to relate to and it is well written, with heart wrenching honesty. The book has validated our feelings of discouragement, while also giving us practical direction, instruction and resources. It has given us permission to begin healing while also offering suggestions of help for our troubled teen. Reading this book has given us hope!!

    YOU ARE NOT ALONE contains everything from relatable stories to practical exercises and relevant prayers as you journey together with your troubled kids or loved ones of any age. This book is helpful for more than just for parents of troubled kids. I volunteer regularly - mentoring kids from middle school age up through young professional adults - and easily apply the concepts within this book with many of them going through a variety of life struggles. I highly recommend this book.

    Be encouraged and comforted by similar situations others like you have successfully navigated through, become more self-aware of your emotions and reactions involved, develop effective ways of handling various situations as you interact with your struggling loved ones so you help and not enable them, and gain renewed hope for the future of both your relationship with and your troubled one's future itself.

    This amazing book, You Are Not Alone, is a must-read for every parent and grandparent of troubled and prodigal children and grandchildren! Denas brutally transparent and deeply moving story about their daughter, Rene, brought me new insight, wisdom, and hope. We all are survivors of life trauma of some kind. What a gift to find new handles on detachingand even thrivingin spite of those relationships! You will find that Denas tender compassion, deep faith in God, and practical, proven suggestions are not only helpful, but profoundly therapeutic and healing.

    Dena has captured the heart of hurting parents worldwide! She weaves her parental perspective, Scripture, therapeutic helps, and Renee's personal insight to create a tapestry of hope for parents in pain. As the mother of a son with bipolar disorder, the daughter of a prodigal for a time, a pastor, and dually licensed mental health and substance abuse counselor, I found this book to be the best I have read for parents. I will share copies with clients, purchase others for friends, and recommend this book for anyone who is wandering alone in the wilderness of despair. Thank you Dena for reminding us that it is possible to find purpose in your pain, joy beyond your fear, and hope for every tomorrow.
