By Ruth Chou Simons
“I wrote this Pilgrim journey so that we might walk this road, courageously and confidently, together as Christ-followers. Through the guideposts of grace that appear in this book – guideposts which affirm key truths in the Bible – we will find that we are not alone.”

Our Christian walk can sometimes feel unclear and complex, and we often feel as though we don’t know which way to go. Ruth gently reminds us that we need not wander aimlessly, because the Bible, God’s word, is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. Jesus IS the way, the truth, and the life, and he will see us home.
Ruth’s book helps us walk our Pilgrim journey with courage and confidence, by directing us to grace-filled guideposts that affirm key truths about God’s character. Through these guideposts, we’re reminded that we’re not alone or abandoned and there’s no need to strive. No matter our path, we can find secure footing for our journey by surrendering our lives to God – the author of our stories – and by following His guideposts of grace, we will be directed moment by moment, safe in His tender care and provision for us, to our forever home.
The book is a three-part journey; The Journey Begins, A Long Endurance, and Nearing Home. No matter what phase of your Pilgrim journey you’re currently in, the richness of Ruth’s storytelling, encouraging scriptures, and quotes from pilgrim saints who have faithfully traveled (or are currently traveling), beautifully woven with hymns for our hearts, will direct us to the most significant guidepost of all – the truth that “Christ’s finished work on the cross is what makes it possible for us to complete the journey”.
The ‘Old Rugged Cross’, has always, and will always, be more than enough to see us to our heavenly home.
