This Journey Is as Perennial as the Seasons
GraceLaced is about more than pretty florals and fanciful brushwork—it's about flourishing. This beautiful volume of seasonal devotions from artist and author Ruth Chou Simons encourages readers to become deeply rooted in God's faithful promises.

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." --Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts and The Broken Way

Just as winter is not the only season neither is it the focus of the book. Each season is celebrated and acknowledged just as they are in our lives.
So many books seem to have “Ten Easy Steps…” or the devotions so shallow that I’ve been left having read something but pondering nothing. No deep insight, no thought to chew on, nothing that I can bring into my own life and be better for having read it. That is not what I found in Gracelaced. As I read each page I found myself journaling my own thoughts and reflections. There is spiritual meat in this book, not just fluffy pronouncements and I was in a place where I needed exactly that.
As a side note, I also found this book visually appealing. In an age of cheap paper and flimsy paperback Gracelaced is the exact opposite of that. The hard cover is deeply textured and the paper, print and colors are high quality. The book is full of frame worthy water colors all painted by the author. She shares her thoughts, her own journey (without making the book about that) and her beautiful family and by the time I closed the back cover I was better for having read the book.
I’ve now bought several copies of Gracelaced to give as gifts-the one I received was an advanced copy allowing me to give an early and honest review-I’m excited to share the copies I purchased with the loved ones I purchased them for because I believe they too will be better for the reading of it.
I highly recommend Gracelaced book as beautiful way to remind yourself of truths that can seem to be buried by the hype and watered down theology of our day (social media, quick band-aid fixes, etc). It is more than a pretty book (and it is pretty, beautiful, and restful to the soul to look upon), it is a book that will us Scripture to speak His truth to you and remind you of how much He loves and cares for you.
I received an advanced copy of Gracelaced book and agreed to write my honest opinion.
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 related scriptures and a “Respond” section that asks a question and sometimes has space to write. Although the chapters are short, they are rich with encouragement and thoughtfulness.
Ruth encourages readers to become deeply rooted in God's faithful promises by:
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
It's definitely a book I'm going to come back to again and again.
I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
