Ruth's ministry at CLM began in 1998 where she found God's joy in the counseling room where His light and truth become reality in a person’s spirit. She loves that God honored her desire to be available to listen to people’s stories and then share God’s hope and plan for them of grace, mercy and unconditional love. Ruth has lived in Rapid City since 1983. She grew up in Minneapolis, MN and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Community Health from Minnesota State University where she also met her husband Brian. They moved around a bit and settled in the Black Hills with their two daughters, Emily and Sarah, and son Benjamin. Ruth and Brian are now grandparents of two granddaughters and three grandsons.
