Ruthie Elliott: The Brotherhood of Motherhood – Part 1
Take 25 minutes over lunch to nourish your soul!
Becoming a mom ushers you into a secret club, giving you a depth of experience and fellowship all moms share. Ruthie calls it, “The Brotherhood of Motherhood.” You’re never the same again…and better for it!
While raising seven children, Ruthie Elliott (aka Ruth Elliott-Hilsdon) became an Emmy Award-Winning animation artist. Through it all, her real dream was to influence children everywhere to become better people.
In 2003, she launched GoMommyGO® to empower parents with free resources for positive reinforcement. Then, in 2007, she founded Edu Designs, a non-profit charity that creates and distributes media for children’s character development.
And now, Ruthie also coaches women at Spirit-Led Supermoms, to help them get in touch with the things they have the hardest time saying.
In Part 1 of their conversation, Nada and Ruthie discuss:
- Ruthie’s experience as one of the animation artists on The Simpsons, and earning an Emmy Award for her work
- Raising seven children while navigating a difficult marriage
- How Ruthie’s work helps women discover their real feelings
- The domino effect of what can happen when we squash ourselves while caring for others
- Why Ruthie spent eight years of her life worrying if she was being good enough to not be killed
- Success is when preparation and opportunity meet
- There is a “divine appointment” in life
- Finding a way to get along with others without sacrificing yourself is one of life’s most important skills
- If you don’t show the real you, how can you feel truly loved?
- When a person believes a lie, it can cause an avalanche of mistakes
