End of Life stories from a nurse who has been helping patients feel hope and love in the midst of losing everything at life end. Becki Hawkins has been a nurse in many different healthcare settings and she has learned many life lessons while witnessing pain, suffering and loss. Life is a great gift but when the clock is ticking very loud, sometimes hope is the farthest from reality. Hope and faith are necessary to take the final steps in life with love and giving peace to those who are left behind.
The rise in elder care, nursing homes and assisted living centers is leaving our most precious relatives in others care and it can be so devastating to all affected. While people are living longer these days, that does not necessarily mean it is a better quality of life or without significant health challenges that leave them unhappy, lonely and bedridden for days, months or years.
My guest today, Becki Hawkins will be sharing stories from her decades of life experiences so you can feel that you are not alone in your experience and someone does care and is listening. Becki is the author of Transitions: A Nurse's Education About Life and Death which is a collection of her stories. Her book may be purchased here.
Death is not to be feared but rather take a chance and live to the last minute with all the love and support you can find. Becki has a You Tube video of her speaking to a group in Arizona and you can find it here.
This is a time of Change. This is a time to remember who we all are and have been. Come sit with me and our guests as we bring the walls down and share who we all are together as a people. Walk with me as we find the common grounds we all have from beyond birth.
People make a difference...our stories make a difference. We make a difference!
Tonight Becki Hawkins is a natural storyteller and a great listener. She brought those gifts with her as she sat by the bedside of seriously ill or terminally ill patients for more than 30 years as an oncology and hospice nurse. And it is her compassion and warmth that encouraged so many of her charges to share their heartfelt thoughts and experiences with her.
Today, for the first show of the new year, it's my honor to present Becki Hawkins, R.N., a kind, compassionate oncology nurse, who also is a hospice chaplain.
Becki, author of Transitions: A Nurse's Education about Life and Death, will entertain you with poignant, humorous, and heartbreaking stories about patients she helped during her 30-year career as a nurse.
I've been wanting to interview Becki for more than a year. I first had the pleasure of "meeting" her over the phone after her book came out a year ago.
Intrigued, I immediately booked Becki on this Gab with the Gurus Radio Show but then had to cancel our interview, because I was going through my own painful family emergency--my mom was terminally ill, and I wanted to be there for her.
At last, I'm interviewing Becki, who has been a very supportive, wonderful friend during my trying time. You're sure to be entertained and inspired during our interview.
Tune in with Saul Ravencraft and David Marsh for a discussion with hospice nurse, Becki Hawkins, on death and dying. There is a lot of controversy about what causes hauntings. One of the theories is that deaths that are violent or filled with fear create these circumstances. With that in mind how people approach the end of their life and how we care for them in their final days should matter a great deal.
Saul will discuss Becki’s experiences and thoughts on the matter. Few of us see death in person. This is an important episode that may change your views on some things. It really brings it all down to the human issues.

Becki Hawkins started her career as a nurse’s aide in 1971, an experience that motivated her to go to nursing school to become a registered nurse. As an RN, she worked in oncology, hospice, eventually becoming a hospice chaplain. And all along the way, for 30 years, Becki collected stories! She’s coming to Full Power Living to share the stories, demonstrating for us what the dying have to teach the living. Dear to my heart, Becki talks about how each of us “learning” in this place that one of her patients called “Earth School.”
