Episode 359: Relying on Grace to Free You From Striving with Ruth Chou Simons

I have a returning guest today and that is Ruth Chou Simons. Ruth Chou Simons is a Wall Street Journal bestselling and award-winning author of several books, including GraceLacedBeholding and Becoming, and Foundations. Her first Bible study curriculum, TruthFilled, released in 2020. She is an artist, entrepreneur, and speaker, using each of these platforms to spiritually sow the Word of God into people’s hearts. Through her online shoppe at GraceLaced.com and her social media community, Simons shares her journey of God’s grace intersecting daily life with word and art. Ruth and her husband, Troy, are grateful parents to six boys—their greatest adventure. And today we’re talking about her new book “When Strivings Cease: Replacing the Gospel of Self-Improvement with the Gospel of Life-Transforming Grace”. You’re going to love this powerful conversation
