At the heart and helm of GraceLaced Co. is its founder, author and artist Ruth Chou Simons, who began the company from her kitchen table in 2013, after starting a blog in 2007 by the same name. Ruth’s desire was to “find grace in the everyday,” exploring the truth of God’s grace applied to the mundane of everyday life. With a background in painting, Ruth began offering reproductions of her artwork that paired with the biblical insights she shared with her online community. GraceLaced Co. soon became a beloved source across the globe for products and resources that combined beauty with truth.
Today, the creative company is powered by its small but mighty female team, and co-owned with Ruth’s husband Troy Simons, who serves as COO of GraceLaced. Ruth’s hand-painted artwork and Biblical teaching continue at the heart of the brand and company, which now headquarters in Western Colorado, home to Ruth, Troy, and their six sons.
