BE GENEROUS. BE GENEROUS WITH YOUR TIME AND YOUR WORDS AND YOUR THINGS. WE HAVE ALL THAT WE NEED SO DON'T BE AFRAID TO GIVE.
Ruth was nominated by her husband, Shaun, and believe us, we can see why! Not only is she a super mom of four, but she, along with her children, give to an amazing number of worthwhile projects including Austin Pets Alive, food banks, Dell Children's Hospital, and many others. She has prepared meals for homeless teens. She has organized fundraisers. She has organized meal services for someone she barely knows. She has served the children of her church—the list goes on and on! Her commitment to serving others and her community has been an awesome example to her family as well as to everyone around her.
In addition to serving the community, Ruth is an incredible mother (who has managed to volunteer as a “room mom” for all four of her children’s classrooms….all at once!) Speaking of her role as a mother, Shaun shared with us: “Ruth has sacrificed her own pursuits to be present at most, if not all moments in her children's lives.” We so admire her dedication!
Ruth has a fantastic motto she lives by and shares regularly with her family:
“Be generous. Be generous with your time and your words and your things. We have all that we need so don't be afraid to give.”
Ruth, we adore you and applaud all of the wonderful things you do to lift the world! Welcome to the ranks of our beloved Viva Babes!
