GraceLaced: Discovering Timeless Truths Through Seasons of the Heart
From the Publisher:
This Journey Is as Perennial as the Seasons
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
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.
I was grateful to obtain an early copy of this book from the publisher to review. This book is full of stunning pieces of art and photography, but even more impressive is the beauty of the words shared by Simons. I used this book as a devotional each morning and it was a great way to start the day. I loved how she took a verse or short passage, shared her thoughts and words of encouragement, and then gave more scripture to go deeper. Each day ends with a prompt or question, and room to respond. There is a journal that you can purchase to use alongside the book, but it isn’t necessary.
The book is separated into seasons of life–summer, fall, winter & spring, and the devotions in each season reflect the four words listed above (resting, rehearsing, responding and remembering). It was wonderful to be reminded about my identity in Christ and how I can rest in what He has already done instead of working for something that on my own I could never achieve.
I recommend this book for any woman–the words are just as true for men, but they writing and the pictures would tend to make the book more appreciated by women. This book would also make a beautiful gift.
