“Sunsets are proof that endings can often be beautiful too.” – Beau Taplin
As this work week is over, I hope that you will enjoy some BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS this WEEKEND!! I hope that you will carve out time to REST and RENEW your soul.
I’m curious…. What is the purest DESIRE of your Heart and the greatest LONGING of your Soul!?
Would you consider giving yourself PERMISSION to spend time this weekend doing what you MOST LOVE to do in the world? Can you give yourself permission to CHOOSE FIRST that which fills your heart and soul to overflowing!?
If you are saying “HECK YEAH!!!,” then what does this TIME look like, feel like, smell like? Are there any sounds you can hear or scents you can smell? What colors do you see? Are you alone, or are there others with you? What time of day is it? What season? This is your SAFE SPACE, created by you, and FOR YOU!!
✨My safe space is anywhere I can find LIGHT!
I find so much JOY and PEACE in watching the sun set each evening. I find Hope in the beautiful colors that are ever changing. And at the end of a long day, my FAITH and TRUST IN GOD are RESTORED when my eyes gaze upon the beautiful masterpiece displayed across the sky. This is where my Heart and Soul CONVERGE with the HEART AND SOUL of GOD. The sunset is where I encounter PEACE that surpasses ALL understanding!!
If you are at an ENDING that is difficult to process and/or difficult to walk through, I SEE you. I HEAR you. I RELATE to you.
I am here to hold safe space and deeply listen.
I want to encourage you that every ending is a new beginning. Nothing is truly ever lost. God is UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. Everything is working together for your good, and you are held by divine timing.
To any woman who needs need a little extra encouragement, please remember this…. YOU are GORGEOUS. You are ABUNDANT. You are LOVED. You are BLESSED. You are SAFE, and God’s got YOU!
With So Much Hope and Love, Ruth Renee RN 💛 Christian Nurse Coach | Spiritual Healer
I would LOVE to hear about your safe space!! If you’re willing to share, please comment below and share with a friend who can use some encouragement and support. ☀️
EVERY WOMAN HAS A STORY TO TELL. Speaking the truth in love sets her free. Let’s be brave together!
The Lord turns mourning into JOY, and the city WILL be rebuilt. God keeps ALL his promises. Everything is working together FOR your good. Hope always finds a way to be restored, and our prayers and words offered up to Him will not return empty or void.
God created you and knit you together in the womb. He intricately KNOWSYOU and He longs to restore what the enemy has taken. He desires to give you a hope and a future.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE.” Jeremiah 29:11
I invite you to cast ALL your cares on the Lord, to tell God the most fervent desires of your heart and soul. Ask in the name of JESUS, give the glory to God, and it will be done. Knock and He will answer. Ask and you will receive.
For all the PARENTS, please know that I am praying for you and your children. If you are a SINGLE PARENTS, you have a special place in my heart because this is the life I have lived for the last few years. The Lord has been with me every step of the way, keeping me safe, protecting and providing, offering me His grace and peace.
I am praying for a DOUBLE BLESSING over you and your children, for provision, protection, and the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. I am praying for ANGELS to surround you and protect you and your children. I am THANKING GOD for the angels that surround you NOW. Praise God for beautiful sunsets and sunrises!!
If you are in a season of WINTER and dark nights, please know that the Lord turns mourning into joy, that the Lord wipes away every single tear you cry, and that the sun will rise again.
May we ALL continue to rise up in prayer and praise. May we welcome the Holy Spirit in our homes every day, and may we clearly hear, see and know how the Lord is working in our lives. May God bless each of us with greater clarity, discernment, and wisdom as we raise our children up unto Him. Come JESUS come. Amen. 🙌🏼

Collective 14.1…WE DID IT!!! One powerful conversation at a time! I couldn’t be any prouder of us and how we lead others to true healing and lasting transformation.
Nurse coaching isn’t like any other coaching I know. It’s a complete 180 PARADIGM SHIFT! A whole new way of thinking sooo different from the conventions and practices of the world.
Nurse coaching operates under the belief that NONE OF US are broken or disordered, but that WE ARE ALL uniquely and innately WHOLE and exactly where we are supposed to be in our journey!!
I thank God for the divine setup that led me to nurse coaching at the very beginning of this year. I honor me for giving myself permission to reimagine what my life could be, for writing it down last year as part of a Hope Writer’s challenge.
For years I was burned out! I never thought that I would step back into nursing, BUT I have discovered this entire new world of holistic nursing outside the hospital that I absolutely love and adore!!!
If you’re wondering what sparked my desire to become a nurse Coach, the short answer is that God led me to it and I was ready to receive the divine gift that felt like it had been prepared just for me after years of my own personal health and trauma struggles. I am a survivor of many things, and it is my heart to help other women heal, to be brave enough to tell their stories, to speak the truth in love, and discover absolute freedom in living wholly aligned with their divine purpose and highest self! 💜💜💜
If you’d like to elevate your thinking, and be challenged to overcome your fears and take action, then reach out to me!! I’d love to encourage and help you to step into alignment with your divine purpose!!
Currently, I offer 1 hour free coaching sessions as a way for you to discover if nurse coaching is right for you. Also, you don’t have to be a nurse! 😉 I am passionate about helping women practice better self-care, self-compassion, and self-advocacy.
Fear and doubt aside, what is the tiniest action step you can take that will powerfully shift everything in your world?
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.
I recently read this about God’s love, that it is not “as long as,” but “IN SPITE OF.” And I 100% agree!!
W H I L E I N M O R M O N I S M: I believed God’s love was conditional. I believed I was worthy of God’s love and saving grace through the temple covenants only…. AS LONG AS I paid my tithing perfectly AS LONG AS I kept the word of wisdom perfectly AS LONG AS I kept the law of chastity perfectly AS LONG AS I was honest in all my dealings AS LONG AS I had a perfect faith and perfect testimony without any room for doubt AS LONG AS I did everything asked of me by my Mormon leaders and prophets, perfectly.
I was filled with shame, anxiety, and depression because I felt unable to live up to the requirement of this God’s salvation. I felt unworthy because I was not perfect.
BUT, thank goodness for the God of grace that I know today.
A F T E R I LE F T M O R M O N I S M: the God of grace showed me that divine love is unconditional IN SPITE OF my unworthiness, imperfection, and sin.
God loves me, and saves me, just as I am… IN SPITE OF my dishonesty IN SPITE OF my immorality IN SPITE OF my anger IN SPITE OF my jealousy and pride IN SPITE OF my doubt IN SPITE OF all my faults IN SPITE OF my unworthiness and imperfection
I will never be worthy or perfect of God’s salvation despite all my best efforts. None of us will.
BUT IN SPITE OF my unworthiness, I am fully loved and saved by God just as I am!
No longer am I filled with shame. Rather these days, I am filled with God’s s righteousness, grace, hope, peace, and even JOY!!
I have never been more convicted of any truth than I am of this – JESUS ALONE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH! I am so grateful I realized that I do not need Mormon temple covenants to be saved and changed by grace. I am so thankful that I have direct access to the Father through the propitiation of Jesus. I’m so grateful that I realized I do not need a middle man to reveal God’s heart for me.
If you are struggling to feel worthy of God’s love, I invite you to consider where you can give yourself permission to let go. Where can you let go of the “as long as” conditional love you have been believing, and step into the “in spite of” love that sets us free?
If you are open to receiving prayer, this is my prayer for you…May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing. May Jesus alone be the anchor of your soul and your Great High priest. May you accept Jesus into your heart by grace alone, knowing that we are saved by this sacrifice alone. Our bodies are now the temples in which God dwells.
Love is patient, love is kind. Love is not easily angered, and love keeps no record of wrongs. If I have not love, I am nothing.
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.
