A SLM conversation with Renee King-Sonnen
(Her vegan transformation from cattle rancher to cattle sanctuary)
Renee King-Sonnen is on a mission to restore harmony and balance between us, animals, and our planet. This mission started with Rowdy Girl, an abandoned calf on her husband’s Texan cattle ranch. Her husband asked her to help nurture and mother Rowdy Girl. And, this changed everything; it was the start of a new way of seeing animals, a new diet, and a new life mission.
Renee went on to become a vegan, to co-found Rowdy Girl Sanctuary, and work with the Rancher Advocacy Program.
Rowdy Girl Sanctuary (RGS) provides sanctuary to farm animals at risk of being slaughtered and promotes an ethical vegan lifestyle. RGS seeks to educate the public on plant based food options, FFA/4H, factory farming practices, and the devastating impact of animal agriculture on the environment. Learn more about RGS at @45:00 mark of this epsiode and at its website: https://rowdygirlsanctuary.org/
The Ranchere Advocacy Program (RAP) "...advocaes for the farmer, families, their land, and the planet." They help farmers and ranchers transition out of animal agriculture to othr ways of using their land in ways that sustains themselves, their families, their land, and the environment. Learn more about RAP at @50:00 mark of this episode and at its website: https://rancheradvocacy.org/
In this episode, Renee shares her vegan journey and advocacy with us. We discuss:
When I recorded the introduction for this episode, I named it "a moment of NURTURE is lined by TRANSFORMATION". As I started to type that title here, a sanctuary popped in instead of transformation. From her nurturing of Rowdy Girl, Renee went on to create a sanctuary for other animals. In the process, she is also creating a sanctuary for herself, for others, and for our shared planet.
Listen to our conversation and discover how
a moment of NURTURE is lined by SANCTUARY.
Thank you for listening to Silver Lining Moments.
By Renee sharing, and by you listening, together we are:
expanding love and light,
one person at a time,
one story at a time,
one Silver Lining Moment at a time.
