      This book is stunning. It is loaded with her original art work, family photos, and gorgeous nature pictures. The best thing about it though is that it is filled with truth. The guidance Ruth gives is based on her real life experiences and her knowledge of the Bible. She is an inspiration and this book is a beautiful representation of her. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review, but then I bought a bunch for my friends!

    2. Kaytee Cobb on said:

      This book is just stunning in every way. 32 devotions that are so manageable and easy to read, but encourage a depth of faith in just 2 pages a day. the paintings, photos, and lettering make this book feel like an experience more than just something to read. It is akin to walking through an art gallery while meditating and praying. I will give this book as a gift in the future, of that i am sure. so happy to be part of the #gracelacedbook launch team. I did receive a copy for review from the pub [...]

      My passion is for fiction -- Christian Fiction to be precise -- but from time to time a truly stunning non-fiction title comes up for review and I just cannot resist. GraceLaced is just such a book. The extraordinary artwork and thought provoking words in each devotional have really touched my heart -- inviting me to 'be still and know that I am God.' This is where I confess to sometimes rushing through devotionals in order to get started with my day. Shameful, I know, but that's the honest trut [...]

      I have long been a fan of Ruth Chou Simons’ writing on her blog and beautiful art work. So I was super excited to get receive of an advanced copy to review. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect from the book. I knew it would be beautiful, but what would the content hold? I more than pleased to discover it is an exquisite book with 32 short devotional readings arranged by season.Each chapter contains a scripture verse and devotional reflections along with a “Delve Deeper” section with more [...]

      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 [...]

      Ruth Chou Simon's writing and gorgeous artwork has encouraged and challenged me for a long time. However, Gracelaced far exceeded my expectations. Each of the 32 meditations moved my heart to worship Jesus through beautiful art, inviting poetry, honest struggle, heartfelt prayer, and a deeper understanding of God’s Word. Gracelaced urged me to anchor my heart in God’s Word and His promises. This study has challenged me step out to see beauty and to praise God in places where I used to only [...]

      I received an advanced copy of this book to review. Anyone familiar with Ruth Chou Simons, from her blog or Instagram, will recognize her beautiful artwork all over the pages of this visually stunning book. But it's the way she effectively and encouragingly communicates the truths of scripture that are so captivating. Ruth walks us through the four seasons of the year, teaching us along the way that God takes us through seasons of our lives with purpose and care, for His glory and our good. Ther [...]

      After following Ruth on Instagram for the last few years I was super excited to get my hands on this book when I heard it was being released and let me say, it did not disappoint! So incredibly beautiful and well written. When I had a few extra minutes in my day it was easy to read a two-page topic and I was always left being encouraged and challenged. Before I even finished the book I purchased 8 more to share with friends! Full disclosure: I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange f [...]

      Absolutely amazing. This book does not disappoint. For all you ladies who are weary and need rest or just a refreshment for the day, this book is for you. Truths that we need to be speaking over ourselves moment by moment. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. But then I bought copies for my friends. :) I CANNOT wait to give them away.

    10. Shannon on said:

      I have been encouraged and inspired by Ruth's art and her blog for many years and her new book with both well-written and a work of art. It is one of the best devotionals I have ever had the privilege of reading. It is full of truth, beauty, and goodness and will point you to Christ in all the seasons of your life. I recommend it without reservation! You will be blessed!

      This is a BEAUTIFUL inspirational/devotional book!!! Mama bought it a few days ago and the art inside is stunningly beautiful!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    12. Emily Webb on said:

      This is such a beautiful devotional - both the artwork and the actual words! I borrowed from the library and went through it quickly, but I can't wait to own it and slowly work through it.

    13. Lindsey Goetz on said:

      I had the privilege of receiving an advance copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was already a fan of Ruth's artwork, but I have been blown away by the way she has woven together truth and beauty in the gracelaced book. It is a gospel-rich devotional that will turn your eyes to Jesus and awaken a hunger for his word in your heart.

    14. Grock on said:

      Goodness, this book is GORGEOUS and just so full of encouraging essays that point the reader to our Heavenly Father. The artist and author behind the book, Ruth Chou Simons, comes across as genuine, wise and generous. I'd recommend this book to friends and family. I received an advance copy of the book from the publishing company, but it can be preordered if before September 1, 2017 at gracelaced/gracelacedbook.

    15. Taylor on said:

      This book, in a word: Beautiful.

From cover to cover, even the end pages and the table of contents, are filled with sweet watercolor paintings by the artist, and founder of Gracelaced, Ruth Chou Simons. The paintings and devotions in this book give such delightful, colorful reminders of God’s word.
This book is set up as a journey through seasons, as related to our walk with God. Starting with winter, and resting in who He is, and what God says about himself. Then, rehearsing in the spr [...]

      Oh my, where do I even begin? You could say this book has served as a diamond in the rough of my life. Recently everything I have knew came crashing down due to an unearthed situation; I had lost all hope. This book showed up on my doorstep as a nice surprise about two weeks after and has literally been the key resource in the process of restoring my broken heart. The reason I tell you this is because "self help" books were literally coming out of my wazoo but they honestly mean very little if a [...]

    17. Abbey Wedgeworth on said:

      I feel truly grateful for Gracelaced Book. I received an advanced copy as a member of the launch team during what I would definitely characterize as a "winter" season according to Ruth's definition. This book arrived at the doorstep of a weary young mom whose last 3 months included a miscarriage at 12 weeks, a bout with shingles, a debilitating back injury, and a breast cancer scare. The beauty of Ruth's artwork made biblical truths to which my heart had grown cold more accessible. The simple th [...]

      I've followed Ruth Chou Simons on Instagram for a while so I've always loved her beautiful artwork and encouraging posts. But then I received her new book, Gracelaced, and it far exceeded my already high expectations. Yes, the pages of the book are full of her gorgeous art (over 800 pieces) but above that, it is her humble and loving heart that shows through her words. Each season points you to the Savior in a deep and meaningful way. When I first started reading the book, my husband and I had j [...]

    19. Melissa on said:

      I've followed Ruth Chou Simons via Gracelaced on Instagram for a couple of years now. Her artwork has inspired me and encouraged me to surround myself with Scripture. Gracelaced- the book allowed me to break down a trial I've been walking through for over year. Complicated health stuff that has completely changed the direction of my life. The devotions in this book are straightforward, almost simple - because they are based on the Bible. Not on "being your best self" or "believing in yourself" b [...]

    20. Becca Iveson on said:

      GraceLaced: Discovering Timeless Truths Through Seasons of the Heart is a great devotional book for the God-seeking woman. It is divided into four seasons of the heart and points the reader back to God and His faithfulness each step of the way. The book is filled with the beautiful watercolor images that are part of the GraceLaced shoppe, but also photo images of the work and seasons of the author’s life. Through each season, Ruth Chou Simon’s is relatable in sharing her own stories of resti [...]

    21. Laura Costea on said:

      I fell in love with Ruth's blog about six years ago, around the time that I realized my expectations for marriage and motherhood weren't exactly easy to fulfill. I've always loved Jesus. But finding Him at home bringing Him into the home a place where messes and stresses can abound didn't always come naturally. Ruth talked about this. She encouraged her readers to cling to the Cross, no matter what. She pointed us to His beauty in the midst of our oh-so-daily lives. She did it all with Grace. Ju [...]

      I've followed Ruth's blog and social media accounts for over a year now and found so much encouragement through them- naturally I was thrilled when she announced she was publishing a book! The GraceLaced book is full of beauty. Ruth's beautiful writing is matched by her artwork, page by page turning your eyes and heart towards Christ himself and the gospel which is sufficient to strengthen us through every season. While reading this book I went through some hardships of my own, including an unex [...]

      From the moment this book arrived on my doorstop, I’ve hardly put it down. Not only is it beautiful, but it is so full of truth and encouragement. Ruth is gifted in weaving words together in ways that speak to my soul. The book is set up in 4 sections: Winter (Resting in God’s Character), Spring (Rehearsing the Truth), Summer (Responding in Faith) and Fall (Remembering God’s Provisions). Each section contains 8 short devotionals with her beautiful artwork sprinkled throughout. There are sp [...]

    24. Amanda Cotton on said:

      I loved this book. It was absolutely gorgeous and was worth it just to look at the beautiful scripture artwork, but Ruth has poured truth into this book as well. It's divided into four "seasons" of the heart and the topics move through the various needs a heart has through each season. Winter is resting in the truth of the Word of God (and dwelling in God's promises and trusting He knows best). Spring is rehearsing the truth (in early spring, you would begin the hard work of pulling weeds and fe [...]

      You will “taste and see that the Lord is good.” All your senses will be satisfied. From it's texture, shimmering cover, smooth pages, beautiful art and words, this book is hard to resist, which was confirmed as I offered my small group five books to choose from for us to go through together next. GraceLaced being one of them. The response was unanimous. They all chose GraceLaced. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. And honestly, I find it to be a treasu [...]

      I was looking to this book for thoughts of purpose, thoughtful planning, and being present. I'm desperately needful of time each day to focus frenzied attentions, feed my forgetful heart on faithful promises, and to be set free from fearful fretting. Morning quiet moments quickly became richer as I delved into Ruth Chou Simons new book.The words and art come together so beautifully to cheer the eyes and the heart. Author and artist Ruth Chou Simons has dished up a feast of intention-growing trut [...]

      Ever since I heard that Ruth Chou Simons would be coming out with a book, I knew I had to have one! I had the wonderful opportunity to receive an advance copy of her book in exchange for an honest review, and let me tell you: honestly, this book really did an amazing job of speaking to me. I usually don't read devotionals, mainly because I usually feel like they're too shallow or rehearsed. But with Gracelaced, I felt as though Ruth was speaking directly from her heart. And there were several in [...]

      This season of my life has been quietly challenging. Under my roof is a five month old, a senior in high school, and everything inbetween. Our sweet 1st grader has been diagnosed with dyslexia and RAD (reactive attachment disorder). I’ve found myself looking down and whispering prayers, begging for help to be the mom that my family needs right now.I’m learning to let go of my to-do list, what I think is important, and my own goals. I’m noticing that my home is the most peaceful when I simp [...]
