about the book....

GraceLaced is about more than pretty florals and fanciful brushwork—it's about flourishing. With carefully crafted intention, this beautiful volume of 32 seasonal devotions from artist and author Ruth Chou Simons encourages readers in any circumstance to become deeply rooted in God's faithful promises. GraceLaced extends a soul-stirring invitation to draw close to God while...

- resting in who He is
- rehearsing the truth He says about you
- responding in faith to those truths
- remembering His provision to sustain you, time and time again

More than 800 individual pieces of art came together in the crafting of this book, including dozens of new, hand-painted Scripture vignettes that Ruth is known for.

Who we are and who God is never changes, even though everything else rarely stays the same. Let this book point you to truth as you journey through the changing seasons of your heart.

“There are seasons for everything, in which we struggle, persevere, thrive, and revive, again and again. Sometimes we wrestle with the seasons of the heart. We need to remember that who we are and who He is never changes, even when everything around us rarely stays the same.”
~ Ruth Chou Simons

my review....

Featuring truly beautiful artwork, stunning photos, and heart-stirring writings, "Gracelaced" is the devotional that you have been waiting for! Although I don't normally comment on the outer cover of books I review, I have to mention that "Gracelaced" is one of the most attractively bound hardcovers that I have ever encountered. It is a pleasure to behold, and the moment you crack open the cover you cannot help be mesmerized by all that lies within. Simons uses her words and artwork to walk you through the seasons of life's journies, to realize that God's grace is there to meet you every step of the way. The 32 meditations included in the book will serve to bless you and inspire you, to point you to the Hope of Christ in the midst of the joys and challenges of our lives. The devotional is clearly aimed at female readers in particular, and my wife assures me that any woman would love to be given a copy of this book, to read Simons musings, be pointed to the scriptures she weaves into her writings, and then be given the space to reflect and respond to the gentle nudgings she gives to those walking the journey along side her. You could choose to read one of the meditations each day, one per week, or however you want to space them out in the seasons of your own life. This is the type of book that you can return to more than once, allowing God's truth to settle in your heart and allowing the artwork to speak to your soul.

I encourage the men out there to grab a copy for their wives or their moms or any of the special women in their lives. And for any female reader encountering this review, "Gracelaced" offers up rich and satisfying food for your walk through life, and I think that your faith will be blessed by this remarkable offering. I and my wife award this book 4.5 out of 5 stars.
