Giveaway with Ruth Simons of Gracelaced



Profile hi rezI want you to meet my friend and fellow blogger in ministry at The Better Mom,  Ruth Simons.

It’s only by the grace of God that Ruth considers motherhood to 6 young boys a high and worthy calling. She’s been married almost 16 years to her headmaster husband, who was formerly a pastor for 10 years.Ruth educates her children at home part-time, through a Classical Christian school they were part of founding in Albuquerque, NM. She is an artist, foodie, and writer who shares her heart at her blog, GraceLaced. There, you will find her writing about the everyday moments in which the Gospel intersects the beautiful and the banal as a wife, mom, and child of the King.

While she has been blogging for the last 7 years, the GraceLace Shoppe has only been open since November 2013. Ruth is so grateful for this new season in her life where she is able to create and point to the Master Artist with her artwork. Visit her blog and shoppe at GraceLaced, and connect with her, behind the scenes, on Facebook and Instagram.
