We are big fans and have been so deeply impacted by the work and truth of our guest today.  Renowned speaker, author, and podcast host, Ruthie Lindsey joins us for a conversation we will never forget. Ruthie travels the globe sharing her story, empowering others to find purpose in their pain, to look for beauty in the midst of their sacred wounds. Today on the podcast, Ruthie shares her experience with being hit by a vehicle and coming close to death in her youth, and how that trauma set the stage for drug dependence, divorce, and depression in her life. We also talk about the multiple surgeries that Ruthie has endured, what she’s learned through the healing and rising through such trauma, and the incredible journey that’s in front of her. Ruthie’s story of growth from pain and suffering is absolutely unbelievable, and beautiful.
