After 6 months of going through the nurse coaching processing as a client, I know without a doubt that my voice matters!
I am no longer afraid to publicly say what I think even if it is different than the majority. I have the courage to be me and am choosing from this day forward to accept others where they are.
What do you need to say out loud that you have not yet said? I challenge you to speak the truth in love, holding nothing back.
It’s okay to believe differently than those we love. Unity is not uniformity.
Unity is defined as “a thing forming a complex whole.”
A little something I read on Instagram that spoke deeply to my heart early this morning when sleep alluded me…
“Bring me the one who disagrees to my face but supports me behind my back. Bring me the one who takes risks a little far but pushes people to be better than they were today. Bring me the one who challenges me to rethink my perspective, to research before forming an opinion, and who has relentless faith that we will work out our differences and if we don’t, we’ll disagree cordially….
Bring me the messy ones.” @principal_jess
I’m so thankful for a mother who taught me, and continues to teach me, about unconditional love in spite of differences in beliefs, appearances, and talents.
Most everything I learned about love, I learned it first from my mother because of her relentless courage to choose faith over fear, love over hate, unity over division.
She taught me it’s okay to be messy, that it’s okay to be myself, that it’s okay to be different. She accepts me as I am, and holds space for me no matter the choices I make.
It is my hope for every human that you find your path and find your peace, wherever that may be.
It is my belief that we are on this earth to hold healing space for each other, no matter what.
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!”
Here I am the day after a breakup…hair not washed, no makeup, and my eyes are puffy and swollen from crying yesterday. Honestly, exhausted and feeling worn down.
But….I am smiling!
I put on my workout clothes, take the dogs for a run, and listen to some worship music. As my feet hit the pavement, my body releases the emotional pain stored in my body. I let go and let God.
Breakups can be difficult because they can overwhelm us with a lot of pain in a short amount of time. However, breakups can be a good thing because they are an opportunity to heal the pain of the past as we comfort ourselves in the present.
In reaching out to talk to a friend yesterday, I gave myself the gift of an “empathetic witness” to not only the pain of the present, but also the pain of the past. And in doing so, I gave my inner child space and time to continue healing.
There is freedom in letting ourselves feel our feelings when they come so that we can release the pain and move forward.
There is freedom in setting boundaries with others when our deepest values don’t align.
There is freedom in choosing to protect our hearts, in choosing to be nothing other than our authentic selves.
Yesterday and today, I choose to rest and recover. I give myself permission to slow down, learn and grow.
I ask my inner child…
What do you need?
How can I be here for you?
How can I meet the needs you were trying to have met by the other person?
How can I meet the needs that weren’t met in your childhood?
What can I do for you right here, right now?
I tell my inner child…
I am sorry you were hurt in childhood.
I am here for you now.
I choose to protect your heart.
I choose you.
To my reader, I ask you this, where can you show yourself compassion and kindness? Where are you not choosing yourself? Where can you give yourself permission to change that?
In your hardest moments, I hope that you can give yourself permission to slow down and rest, to let yourself feel, to let yourself heal.
You are loved. You are enough. You are worth it!!
If you’d like to be coached on how to feel your feelings or connect with your inner child, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
So what if they don’t care what you think?! Let your voice be heard anyway, and remain unattached to the outcome. Nothing may happen now, but you never know the ripple effect you may have. What is the cost of not saying anything?
There is power in letting your thoughts and feelings be heard…no matter how they are received!
Wherever you are, whatever you are struggling with….what if you stand up for yourself, and let your voice be heard, no matter the outcome?!
Be an advocate! Be a leader! Be a voice of reason!! Use your God-given powerful voice and speak your truth!!
If you feel as if you don’t have a voice or a choice, I want to remind you that you do!! I encourage you to use your voice and speak up. Your breath is not wasted, no matter the outcome.
FREEDOM is the promise you claim when you choose to speak the truth in love. I believe in you. I am here to hold space for you if you need someone to listen and encourage you.
I am here to help you find your authentic voice and the courage to speak your truth.
To all you who are struggling to speak up, I see you. I am here for you. I believe in you. I am living proof that change is possible.
Remember, you are loved! You are worth it! You are enough — period!!!
Real power comes when you choose to live in the truth of who you are, when you choose to be nothing other than your authentic self.
You are a beautiful soul! Please don’t ever give up on yourself!!
If you are afraid to speak up at work, at home, at school, or wherever you are suffering….I am here for you. You are not alone.

During deep sleep and active meditative rest, our bodies and minds slow down.
Our cells, tissues, and organs repair themselves so that we can keep functioning at our best possible health.
Energy is replenished and our immune systems are strengthened during restorative rest.
During the day, you can give your body a chance to recharge and refuel through active meditation and deep breathwork. Taking prolonged deeper breaths slows down the brain and allows the body to enter into the healing restorative parasympathetic state.
Guided and non-guided meditations are my favorite ways to actively rest during the day. Some of my favorite times to meditate are upon wakening, before going to sleep, and in the middle of the day when I need a mental reset or a physical energy boost.
I promise you that meditation is so much better than caffeine!! Would you be willing to take that challenge? Meditation in place of caffeine!?!
If you’re ready to make some changes in your life and are looking for someone to guide you along the way….then I would be honored to help you, to coach you, to be a witness to your healing and growth!
I can help you determine how much rest you need, and together we can create peaceful rhythms and discover unique ways to give your body the rest and balance it needs. We will explore and discover the best times and methods for you.
I’ve been practicing the art of listening to my body for many years now because it is what I had to do in order to be able to heal from trauma and burnout, in order to manage genetic and chronic conditions, in order to find restoration, healing, and peace.
If you or someone you know is interested in transforming your life for the better, I would be honored to walk alongside and be a bridge to greater healing and peace. It is possible! I am living proof.
Life was not meant to be lived in the fast lane 24/7. It’s okay to give yourself permission to rest. It really is okay! I am here to tell you that your worth is not determined by your productivity.
To all you struggling to slow down out of fear, out of being stuck in autopilot, or out of belief that there is too much to do and you cannot slow down, I see you! You are enough. You are loved. You are worth it, period.
If you’d like to chat and learn more about nurse coaching, please direct message or email me. I would love to help you discover greater balance and peace as you learn to better listen to and honor your body.
