Emmanuel, by Ruth Chou Simons
52/30 | Started 12.01.22 • Finished 12.25.22
Simons comes through again in her latest book, this time in the form of an advent study. She shares her beautiful artwork alongside 25 reflections on the Christmas season and the birth of Christ. She centers the book around the idea of "prepare him room" (which also happens to be a set of advent cards available in her shoppe) and what that leads us to do in our hearts, minds, and bodies. Drawing heavily on scripture, her thoughts are simple and down to earth while still being impactful.
