I Am Blessed!! ✨✨✨

I am blessed. @nursehealingadvocate

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.

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!”

If you feel stuck, look up! The sky changes every day!! Peaceful Sunset @nursehealingadvocate

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!”

How to Rewrite Your Story…

Do you remember when you had a writing assignment in high school English class, and your teacher had you write the paper multiple times?

There was an initial rough draft, maybe a few edits in-between, and at last, a polished final draft.

What if there is a way to rewrite your life?

COVID19 and the near shutdown of the world has given each of us a unique opportunity.

I hear God crying out to the world to slow down and be still long enough to hear him, to re-evaluate our priorities, to remember who we were as children.

What were your hopes and dreams as a child?

Who did you want to become?

Are you living that life today?

What if you could become the person you only dreamed of as a child?

Imagine the possibilities of allowing God to rewrite your life with Him in the lead.

Here I am, an inactive registered nurse, somewhat feeling guilty that I am currently unable to work in the hospital, side-by-side, with my fellow nurses.

In college, I commit myself to “learn the healer’s art.” Yet, I have been unable to work as an RN for the last 7 years.

I thought It was my life calling and profession. But what if it isn’t anymore?

What if I was exactly where I was called to be these past 7 years? At home struggling and learning to fight, to advocate, to write.

It was during this period that I had time to study, research, and learn how to advocate for the health of myself and my children – physically, mentally, emotionally.

I learned I have autoimmune thyroid disease. I found the correct treatment, which brought 2 years of unexplained nausea and vomiting to a halt.

I learned my son has ADHD and CAPD– a central auditory processing disorder.

I learned how to advocate for my son within the public school system, acquiring him the learning adaptations he needs to gain success and confidence.

I learned I also have CAPD, that I’m not lazy or dumb, the mean names I would call myself when I struggled to achieve academic goals or the pursuits of my heart.

I learned how hard I’ve really worked my whole life to do well in school and work. I learned how gifted and talented I am.

I learned I have a genetic condition known as EDS, or Ehlers Danlos Syndrome. It makes getting out of bed an everyday battle for me. Yet, I learn how to manage. I learn how to navigate the road map that is my new life.

It was also during this time period that repressed memories of some isolated childhood abuse surfaced. What a wild ride the healing has been! It is still ongoing. But I now see God has been with me every step of the way!!

Because of these struggles, I had to slow down and surrender to God in humility. I now see that God has been rewriting my life these past 7 years

I am learning that I have two callings in life.

Both involve “learning the healer’s art.”

The first is nursing. The second, writing.

Writing and sharing my story about the truth of God rewriting my life for the better…

From one of anxiety to peace,
From one of depression to hope,
From one of searching to purpose,
From one of fear to trusting in Him,
Finally, from one of prolonged grief to Joy!

I slowed down long enough to hear Him.

I allowed Him to show me who I really am…

A beloved child of God.

I am safe. I am home. I am fully alive!

May COVID19 be the time you allow God to rewrite your story.

Imagine the possibilities when you surrender your heart and time to God!

Whatever feels lost, whatever feels wrong, God can rewrite your story for good!

I challenge you that when you don’t know what to do, when you feel uncertain, or think the world is out of control…

Be still and imagine how God would rewrite your life. I am confident it can be done. It is worth the time, and most important of all, you are worth it!

With hope,

Ruth Renee
