Better than caffeine… Bare feet and bare soil Time outside in the sun Reconnecting with the earth is good for the soul
🌍Our planet holds an incredible amount of energy. Spending time barefoot on the earth is a grounding technique I use to settle anxious energy or elevate a depressed mood.
✨ There are many possible health benefits of reconnecting with nature, including but not limited to….
-reduced stress and anxiety -relief from chronic pain -improved sleep -better regulated nervous and endocrine systems -enhanced mental focus -strengthened immune system -heightened creativity -lighter and/or elevated mood –relaxation and calm -more balanced energy levels
☀️ I love to go outside everyday for at least 20-30 minutes. After I go for a jog or a bike ride, I take off my shoes and socks. I choose to walk barefoot as I water the plants in my garden.
I spend time in awareness of the beauty around me, using all my senses to breathe it in. I am able to set aside my worries and focus on my connection to the earth and to God.
🥰 I use this outside time to let go of the stories in my head, to connect to the present moment, and focus on gratitude for the beauty around me. I thank God for the the gift it is to live on this beautiful earth.
Thank you God that you are the master healer, that we place our faith and trust in you, that victory on the cross already happened. You are with us, speaking to us. Every. Single. Day. Thank you that we have direct access to you. You say that your word will not return void. You heal the sick and comfort the broken- hearted. You save the crushed in spirit. Strengthen the spirits of those fighting COVID and other respiratory illnesses. Strengthen their faith and trust in you as they heal.
You command us to pray for one another. Thank you lord for your commands, for your instructions so that we can better hear your voice. May those who are ill hear your voice clearly during this difficult time. Thank you that you protect their lungs and airways. You alone keep them safe!
May they rest easy and sleep well during this time their bodies fight the infections and heal. Thank you lord for your refuge, your safety, your peace. In your wings you give us permission to REST. In your arms, we are safe. In your ever-present shelter, we find PEACE.
Praying for STRENGTH and HEALING, for restoration in the Lord. Thank you. We love you. In Jesus name, I pray, amen.
God, thank you for nurses and teachers everywhere. Thank you for their good hearts and kind souls, their desire to help others heal and learn.
Thank you for their friendship and for their wisdom. Thank you for their boldness and their desire to fight for what is right, no matter what comes their way.
Thank you God for your mercy and grace. Thank you for sacrificing everything in order to love us well.
God, your people are TIRED. Their hearts are GRIEVED, overwhelmed with DISCONTENT at work and in the world. It is exhausting and they are not receiving the support they need. They are worn down and BURNED OUT. They need your strength and your peace Lord. Please shower our AMAZING teachers, nurses, educators, and healthcare workers with your abundant STRENGTH, peace, passion, and joy. Fill them all with your perfect LOVE, with the PEACE that surpasses all understanding, with the HOPE that never fails or fades away.” ✨
Bless us in all your ways as we go throughout our days blessing the lives of others. May the meditations of our hearts and the words upon our lips be pleasing to you, God. May we DELIGHT in you Lord, and focus on you! May we commit our ways to the Lord and you will do it!! You will give us the desires of our hearts as we abide and trust in you.
May you supernaturally recharge their spirits, bodies, minds, and souls. May they stand strong in the face of adversity and not be shaken. Yes, let nothing shake them at work today, tomorrow, and the next. Let them carry your presence and your peace. May they carry peace and hope to to their patients and students. Clothe them with the whole armor of God. Give them your zeal and your might. May they trust in you with all their hearts, leaning not unto their own understanding.
Peace be still! Calm the waves of the sea at our places of work today. Give us boldness and courage in our voices while you also fill us with love and whisper wisdom. Yes bless us lord, even unto 1000 generations. Bless us and keep us, make your face shine upon us throughout all of our days. Place a hedge of protection around us and May the yokes upon ours backs be those of peace. Comfort our broken hearts and be near to us today as we care for ourself and others.
God. May you look after those nurses and teachers who are losing their jobs. Bless them with your abundance. Show them the next right steps. Be a light on their path to show them the way to new beginnings, perhaps in ways that will lead to greater healing for our world. Thank you for all that you do, for never leaving us.
Thank you lord for your goodness. Thank you lord for your boldness, your wisdom and will. Even, thank you for your gentleness. We love you, and seek to praise you and honor your name. Fill our hearts with more of you, and less of the world. Set a boundary line of protection around our hearts. Renew our energy and repair any energy leaks. May we rest in you and abide in your peace and your truth!! In your beautiful name we pray, amen! 🙏❤️✨

Please fill the COMMENTS with much needed PRAYER for nurses and teachers, parents and caregivers! Whatever your faith, whatever your belief, may we come together in unity through the prayers of our individual faiths! All are welcome here. 🙏🏼❤️
Welcome to my raw, authentic, messy and brave nurse coaching world! I’d love to introduce myself to everyone.
My name is Ruth Renee, and my favorite colors are turquoise and deep blue. To me, these colors signifies healing, inner wisdom, and boldly speaking the truth in love.
It took me many years to discover how powerful and needed my voice truly is!!
For too long, I believed lies that I was not enough, that I was not worthy, that I was not lovable, loving, or loved.
CW//brief mention of sexual abuse
When I was 7 years old, I was sexually abused for a short time. It shattered me in a profound way. But because of my courage and faith in God, I continually persisted forward. I take the next right step in faith, and I can now trust that God will not fail me.
Today, I accept who I am and where I have been. I know that my past does not define me. It may have shaped and molded me for a season, but God transformed me in a way that I will forever be grateful. In God’s image and by His love, I am forever changed. A new creation! A beautiful butterfly who now knows that she has wings and was always meant to fly!!
My purpose as a nurse coach is to help other women heal and move beyond the ashes of destruction, lies, and limiting beliefs trapped in their hearts and minds. It is the pure desire of my heart to be an advocate for real and lasting change. As a nurse coach, I gently guide other women toward healing and grace, toward receiving the perfect love that only God can give. “We love because he first loved us.”
If you don’t feel lovable, loving, or loved, please know that I have been where you are now. I appreciate how hard it is and how alone you may feel. I plead with you to not suffer in silence, to not isolate, to not believe the lies playing over and over in your head. Please know that I am here hoping and praying that you never give up on yourself!
Many times, I wanted to give up. Unfortunately, trauma patterns had a strong hold on me for a season because I believed the lies told to me by unsafe people. But, God sent believers into my life to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus; to show me sincere loving kindness in a way that I had not been able to receive for many years. Right place, divine timing! I give the glory to God for saving me. But I did play a part. I prayed for angels and God sent many beautiful souls to help me heal and learn to trust again. I believed in faith that God would help me. I took the first step in courageously bold prayer.
If you feel lost, I am here. If you are afraid, I am here. If you feel hopeless, I am here holding on to Hope against Hope until you can trust and believe for yourself that you are beautiful and loved, just as you are. You are perfectly imperfect, and God made you just as you are for a unique purpose. I am here to be your guide, to help you see the light and truth until your vision becomes more clear. I am here to help you get out of your own way so that you can be the bright light you were created to be. I am here without judgment, control, or manipulation. I am here carrying gentleness, grace, empathy, even courage and peace. I would love to share these gifts God has given me. You are worth it. Your greatest identity is as a child of God.
If you are struggling to feel hope, I would love to be a bridge to peace. I would love to be a light on your path to help you see the way forward to hope. You were fearfully and wonderfully made to receive God’s love and grace so that he can carry you home. I believe with all my heart, might, mind, and strength that God is for you. You are created by love, for love. To love and be loved. It is wired in your DNA to be connected to God and to other people. Please know that there are safe people to whom you can reach out! I would be honored to be that person who holds a safe nurturing space for you. A rich soil to help you blossom and grow.
As a nurse coach, I am passionate about helping other women feel wholly confident in their own skin. I am believing for you until you can fully believe in yourself that “all things are possible when we believe.” God is a promise keeper and a “man of His word!”
So many women come to me for help because they believe the lie that they are not enough. I am right here, right now telling you that this is simply not true!!!
God created YOU just as you are for a reason. You are fearfully and wonderfully made because you have a purpose and you are UNIQUE, SPECIAL. and LOVED! God wants to prosper you and give you a hope and a future, not harm you. GOD IS FOR YOU!! f you believe, then all things are possible. This is my faith and my hope. Empathy and desire for restoration is what motivates me to get out of bed each and every day.
If you would like to connect, please consider reaching out to have a conversation. You don’t have to live in fear. You don’t have to suffer alone. I am here. I see you. I believe you, and I believe in you. You are more than enough. You are worth it! You are not alone.
I’m so curious, where do you find even the tiniest spark of hope? Focus there and remember that HOPE is the belief to “Hold On, Pain Ends!”
I have to thank God and tell you all how amazing it has been to not be controlled by fear!! Despite encountering so much BS red tape in an important personal matter, I have had courage and confidence to speak up and advocate for myself, to push forward even when the path was full of roadblocks!
Thanks to nurse coaching, I know that I don’t have to take no for an answer!! I can speak up and take action until I am tired. Then I can rest, recover, and take the next right step when the time is right for me!
All is well.
Faith over fear… all is well.
Thank you Nurse Coaches Heather, Peter, and Brandie Mitchell for guiding me on an amazing nurse coaching journey! Being a part of The Nurse Coach Collective changed my life, for good!!! ✨✨✨
If you’re a nurse, considering if you should check out nurse coaching, here’s my answer…heck yeah!!! 🩺 🍃
If you’re a nurse or teacher considering if you should speak up in an emboldened voice at work despite not feeling heard or despite being told no over and over again by leadership, here’s my answer… definitely heck yeah!! 📣
You never know the long term lasting ripple effects of your words and your example. Be the change! Do what you feel is right in your heart, despite how the outside world around you reacts. 🌊 🌎
You are exactly where you are supposed to be. God gave you a caring heart and a powerful voice for many reasons, one of which may be to advocate for yourself and others. ❤️ 🗣
Look at it this way — Even though it may be difficult, uncomfortable, or exhausting to speak up now and advocate for needed change, what is the cost of not speaking up? 💲
How can you raise your voice in the service of those around you? 🥳
Nurses and teachers, you deserve so much better!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Your patients and students deserve well-rested leadership. Do what it takes to make self-care a priority, and ask for what you need ar work in order to have a full oxygen tank, in order to have the resources you need to do your job safely and well. 💪
Keep asking, and don’t take no for an answer!! I’m cheering you on and praying for needed change!! I believe you have what it takes. 🙏🏼✨
Faith over fear, you can do this!! All is well with your brave soul! Trust your gut, follow your heart, and please speak your truth! ✨❤️🗣
Please speak up and share with other nurses, teachers, and parents. We’re in this together!! 🙏🏻🙏🏼🙏🏽🙏🏾🙏🏿🌎
Parents, students, patients, and another healthcare workers….where can you speak up in the service of supporting others?! 🥰
