There is art that is beautiful and which causes you to pause and consider Him — and then there is that art that so swells with His beauty that you can’t help but take off your shoes. Ruth’s art, by brushstroke and pen, is the most exquisite kind of creative expression in that it made me want to put down her work and peer more closely at God. I have a growing list of friends for whom I want to gift this book. It’s too good not to share again and again.

How amazing is it, mamas, to have the beautiful, powerful, never-failing word of God all over our homes? I love that Ruth is using her incredible talent to help us follow God’s commands so beautifully through her book, GraceLaced: Disovering Timeless Truths Through Seasons of the Heart.

Ruth Simons, mama to 6 boys, and one breathtaking artist (our walls sing with her gorgeous, edifying prints), is a mentor to me in many soul, life-giving ways. Have you seen Ruth’s paintings? Four of these exquisite wonders hang on walls in our home…and one of those paintings, God used to lead us through the hardest season…and her Instagram feed? her blog? her book? can be like a gift of manna.
Ruth Chou Simons is an artist, writer, entrepreneur, and speaker who shares her journey of how God’s grace intersects daily life through word and brush at GraceLaced.com – the popular blog, online shoppe, and Instagram community that welcomes thousands daily.
Ruth is an unlikely mom to six young boys and wife to Troy, with whom she leads GraceLaced’s small but mighty team. When not painting, writing, and casting vision for GraceLaced.com, Ruth is usually busy eating chips and salsa, sorting laundry, cooking for large crowds, not finishing her sentences, and discovering off-beaten paths in the wild with her guys. She is a devotee of pho, a recovering perfectionist, a converted four-wheeling enthusiast, and a believer in waiting upon her Redeemer through every season.
