EP 083: Beholding And Becoming With Ruth Chou Simons

If you behold your bitterness in your life every day and keep thinking about it and keep fixating on it, repeating the wrong done to you over and over again that will shape who you become. That will affect the person you become in five years. You will go in the direction and traction of your bitterness.
— Ruth Chou Simons

About Episode:

This beautiful conversation with Ruth Chou Simons is going to inspire the creative in your to come alive. In complete transparency, I got off the call with her and immediately went into the other room and immediately and started playing the piano. Something that I’ve not done in forever. And I’ve not stopped. I truly believe this conversation will call out the creativity in you.

Ruth Chou Simons is a bestselling author, entrepreneur, and speaker. Ruth and her husband, Troy, are raising six boys in Colorado. Ruth’s first book, GraceLaced, won a 2018 Christian Book Award. And her latest book Beholding And Becoming just released on September 10th — and WOW!!! And I’m going to be giving away a copy of the book at the end of this week to one amazing listener. All you have to do is grab a screenshot of this episode and post it to your stories or feed on Instagram making sure to tag @the.couragecast and @ruthchousimons and I’ll pick one winner this Friday.

This conversation has really inspired me to access the creative parts of myself. There is something so special about taking time to be filled up and to express ourselves creatively. To work out our emotions on the canvas, or through writing, dance or music. For me, it’s about taking that time to centre myself and open myself to the most creative parts or me — without feeling like I have to be or do anything. I want to encourage you to set aside some time this week to access creativity in your own life.
