Product details

Product description


"Through her brush and pen, Ruth calls us to open our eyes to the abundance of beauty and truth that completely surrounds us but for some of us (raises hand) is hard to see. This book points to the mystery, artistry, and attention to detail that God has woven into the midst of the mundane, repetitive, and ordinary. A stunning masterpiece--you'll hang on every word and obsess over every painting."
--Myquillyn Smith, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Cozy Minimalist Home

"Becoming what we behold offers the hope of becoming as we've always hoped, because it holds up Christ. In a world battling for our eyes and attention, this is a deeply important book for our times. These pages are more than a feast for the eyes--they are direly needed manna for souls who want what fulfills. Let your tired, hungry soul gaze on Whom your soul wants most. And your soul will become more like you always wanted: more like Jesus. This is a beautiful orthodoxy, this is transformationally cruciform, this is a masterpiece forming us more like our Master. Behold. Become. Be held."
--Ann Voskamp, author of the New York Times bestsellers The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts

"Ruth's beautiful art is just a vessel for this deeply meaningful book that will cause you to love God more and see Him in your everyday life."
--Jennie Allen, author of Nothing to Prove, founder and visionary of IF: Gathering

"In a world that continually calls us to worship self, Ruth Simons invites us to consider what our hearts admire. Through her captivating paintings and wise words, Ruth beckons us to an infinitely better source of worship: our creator, God. We all need to be reminded that true contentment and growth aren't found in worldly achievements but in beholding God in all His glory. We're thankful for the hope and encouragement in this book."
--Emily Jensen and Laura Wifler, cofounders of Risen Motherhood and coauthors of Risen Motherhood

"In a broken world where chaos, clutter, confusion, and contention surround us and threaten to undo us, Ruth Chou Simons invites us to lift our eyes upward and behold God's beauty and grace. Ruth's rich artistry--both visual and written--points us to a redeeming God who is making all things new. Seeing Him in even the most ordinary moments and details of life, we are moved to worship and are transformed into His likeness. One day the restoration will be complete, and our hearts will be forever ravished by His beauty."
--Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth, author, Bible teacher/host of Revive Our Hearts

"Ruth is such a gift to us--her voice is strong and honest, yet believably grace-filled and kind. We learn and grow into who we want to be when Ruth's words and art lead us."
--Annie F. Downs, bestselling author of 100 Days to Brave and host of That Sounds Fun podcast

"Not only is Ruth Chou Simons a gifted artist, she's a gifted author. In her newest book, Beholding and Becoming, she faithfully combines biblical wisdom with beautiful reminders from nature. It's evident on every page that her creations reflect her love for our Creator. This book will encourage your soul, remind you of truth, and help you delight in the majestic world all around you."
--Melissa Kruger, author and director of women's content for The Gospel Coalition

"Filled with beauty and truth, Ruth Simons' Beholding and Becoming helps us reorient our thinking and our gaze to behold the Creator of the universe. 'We become what we behold, ' and this book provides tools to help us fix our eyes on the One we will worship for eternity."
--Trillia Newbell, author of Sacred Endurance, If God Is for Us, and the kids' book God's Very Good Idea
