About The Book

How often have you read a book that was life changing?  You know that if you practice what it suggests your life will be better, yet somehow you forget. You forget to meditate in the morning. You forget that three breaths calm you down. You forget all the lessons you learned.

Time for Me is different because it contains wisdom that really works. We have the ability to rewire and create new neural circuits in our brains, and the more we practice something new, the more we can form new neural pathways with each repetition.  In time, these new pathways become deeper than the ones made by our old habits and they become automatic. That means, if we were to practice all this week thoughts such as 'I am happy' or 'I am calm', we would be more apt to return to them when we feel otherwise.

The seeds of all human characteristics are within us—good and bad—the ones that grow are the ones we nurture, and that is why the wisdom in Time for Me is designed to be practiced every day.

Ruth eloquently combines mindfulness, universal energy, and the power of our thoughts to create a practice book with eight steps to change that will truly allow us to focus on ourselves. Her ability to touch and teach us at the same time is to be commended. I highly recommend her work." —Robert J. Ackerman, PhD, author of Perfect Daughters

"I've been privileged many times to hear Ruth speak and interact with many different people on the spiritual path. She brings the same qualities to her writing that effectively move people in her presentations and retreats to take action. Ruth is passionate about sharing her hard-won wisdom through practical and down-to-earth suggestions. One gets the impression that she never recommends something she hasn't tried success- fully in her own life. Her advice is illustrated and dramatized by wonderful stories and quotes from the wisdom tradition, worth collecting and savoring in their own right." —Ned Bellamy, author of Spiritual Values for Our Time

Her newest book, Time for Me, reads like a gentle invitation to both old readers and new ones alike to grab hold of the idea that change—any change that would be beneficial to make—is always possible. She lays out the process for making the change in a clear, simple way. Nothing is too hard when taken in small bites, a week at a time. This book is sure to be a winner among those folks who have not given up on the idea that we are never too old to change." —Karen Casey, author of Each Day a New Beginningand Living Long, Living Passionately

Follow her work and feel the healing happen." —Sharon Wegscheider-Cruse, author ofBecoming a Sage, founder of Onsite Workshops
