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.


We also talk about…


  • Her father passing
  • Ruthie’s relationship with God
  • Falling back in love with herself
  • Ruthie’s experience with plant medicine
  • Working through anger
  • How her chosen family has helped her
  • Healing through shame and sexual trauma

  1. […] Finding Purpose in Pain: Ruthie Lindsey was interviewed on the Almost 30 podcast (one of my favorites), and her words broke me open in the best possible way. Ruthie has experienced immense pain and loss, and yet, her voice is healing and her positivity contagious. The way she speaks about her former self with so much love is nourishment for the soul, and her story of falling back in love with herself was the dose of inspiration and courage that I needed. Give it a listen. […]
