When it comes to pastors, spouses, and issues in their hearts, Ruth Ann Batstone brings a wealth of wisdom and experience to the table. She has counseled and mentored women through World Harvest Mission’s year-long Sonship discipleship curriculum since 1990. She is a therapist in private practice and also teaches at seminars, conferences, and women’s retreats. With her husband Stu, Ruth Ann has ministered overseas in Europe, Russia, Japan and South America as well as in the United States, Canada and Mexico. They have been married since 1965 and love to travel, snorkel, ride bikes and shamelessly dote on their twelve-and-counting grandchildren.
