How An Emailed Saved Her Life…

Ruthie on the left, days before she wanted her life to end... Ruthie on the right, currently with an amazing life ahead.

I DO have the most amazing job.  Some of my friends are worth 10’s of millions of dollars, but when they hear about what I do and how it changes a person’s life, it seem they would be happy to give up all their wealth to have a life and a career that is so rewarding and inspiring.

On a recent trip to Toronto I received requests from Fit Moms For Lifers in the area to meet me.  I set up a breakfast with everyone and had such an amazing time with getting to know the women, but I wanted to share with you just one of the stories from the table, because it is pretty powerful.

So that story and blog post was written two and a half years ago.  Pretty powerful right?  Watch the video below about what happened next.

Here was an email I then received once I got back home…

“I just wanted to say again thank you so much for blessing us today. I honestly did not want to cry while you were filming me this morning, but I wanted to tell you that what I did not say was that God used you to save my life that day. I was truly ready to give up. I did not want to live anymore. I was praying asking God to take me. I couldn’t even read the bible. He lead me to your website miraculously, and began to move my fingers.

 I never expected you to respond, but you did. The love that was shown to me that day and the days following is the reason why I’m still here. I have no doubt that God used you to help me.  Thank You, for doing what you do. Because of what you did unselfishly so many peoples lives have been changed.  I thank God for you and your family. Please tell your mom that her words of wisdom went to good use, and that I treasured them dearly.”


The 42 lbs of weight loss is the smallest of the accomplishments for Ruthie.  She has turned her life around and overcome so many emotional scars and traumatic experiences.  There are millions of Ruthies’ out there in the world, that feel lost, depressed, and maybe even suicidal.  I am thankful that Google helped her find me and that you all poured into her life.  Please forward this to anyone who you think might be inspired by her message and transformation.

If you have been inspired and maybe feel like you are at a point in your life where you don’t see a way out, I believe I have been put on this earth to help you in certain areas.

If you are looking to take the first step to the rest of your life, I would like to invite you to join the Fit Moms For Life monthly DVD program and begin a transformation that you may not believe is even possible.  Visit and start your free trial of the Fit Moms For Life DVDs and community.  Of course, if you haven’t picked up your copy of my book, Fit Moms For Life: How to Have Endless Energy To Outplay Your Kids, I would recommend that as well.


  1. OHMYGOSH, Ruthie!!! When Dustin called on his way home from Toronto and told us that he had actually MET YOU, I was totally blown away and so excited for you, and for all of us getting to also “meet” you, and Donna and her sweet daughter :)! You are beautiful, Ruthie, and have such a glow about you that is way contagious!!
    And wow, you are a speaker too-you know that, right?! Some giftings there, girl! 🙂 Well, that is just like the Lord, putting you and Donna together, after googling Dustin and getting an outpouring of love and advice from people all over, eh?!

    I couldn’t wait to write something to you, so grabbed this spot, but you can be sure that I will be emailing you :). Who knows, maybe we will meet! I could see you as one of his speakers at another book party :).
