Editorial Reviews


"This is a refreshing book, not about religion, but about a relationship
with the surprising God who invites us to come to Him and be uniquely
refreshed. Ellen Vaughn has captured essential truths in unusual ways; this
is a fun read that goes deep."

Eric Metaxas
New York Times best-selling author 

"Ellen Vaughn is brilliant, insightful, funny, Christ-loving, and has a dog
named after C. S. Lewis. But to top it off, she is also a terrific writer. I've
enjoyed and benefited from Ellen's books for many years."

Randy Alcorn
Best-selling author and founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries

"Ellen Vaughn has been a true friend . . . . In her I've seen the
reality of faith in hard times and the joy of faith in a weary world. She cuts
to real truth and hope in her writing, and . . . she makes me laugh."

Greg Laurie
Award-winning author and senior pastor of
Harvest Christian Fellowship 

"Ellen Vaughn is a gifted, persuasive, and sometimes blunt writer who
understands how both humor and story can winsomely disarm us and
reveal truths we may have sought to avoid. Her book is a refreshing invitation
to consider Christ's tender words to the weary and a balm for our
disquieted souls."

Dr. Ravi Zacharias
Author and speaker

This refreshing book is a great tool to understand . . . the radical rest that only Jesus can give, and the . .  . eternal perspective that can actually bring deep peace . . . Ellen is a witty, clear writer, and Come, Sit, Stay is a fast, compelling read."

Joni Eareckson Tada
Founder, Joni and Friends and best-selling author

From the Author

Hello, Amazon friends!  Just a quick word here about Come, Sit, Stay.  I think I've written about 18 or 20 books over the years, a number of them in collaboration with my great friend and mentor, the late Chuck Colson, as well as hilarious and courageous characters like Mary Beth Chapman, Greg Laurie, Denise Jackson, Frank Pastore, and others.   I love collaborative writing and getting inside other people's stories . . . but I try to vary my writing diet with books of my own, because though I don't have a large platform like some of the friends I've just mentioned, I do have stories to tell.  Just like you.   Come, Sit, Stay started on a sunny day when I was walking the beach, consumed by a besetting problem.  It was a burden I had carried for some time, and as I walked the gorgeous beach, suffice it to say I did not feel gorgeous inside.  I felt like a dog worrying a long-gnawed bone. Jesus' words from Matthew 11:28 came to mind:  "Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."   Yes, yes, I've heard that a million times.  Right. But as I actually chewed on the Word--instead of my worry--I began to discover a whole new dimension of rest that I had not known before. That epiphany--which, by the way, continued even after I returned from the beach to the chaos of my teenager-filled domestic life back at home--led to fresh studies of Jesus' words and the construction of this new book.  That's the great thing about being a writer, you get to explore the things you are most curious about.  What the heck does it really mean to come to Jesus . . . to sit with Him . . . to stay with Him?   These are actually radical, countercultural concepts, as we live in a world that spins on hurry, constant movement, multitasking, competing technologies that often mitigate against real relationships, and the occasional assumption that even our relationship with God Himself can be downloaded in some instant way as we drive, sip a latte, and surf the Internet.  Many of us have developed Spiritual Attention Deficit Disorder.  We know little of the stillness of sitting with God.  It terrifies us . . . if I sit, I won't get anything DONE!!!!   But there is radical treasure to be discovered here, and I believe the simple concepts of coming, sitting, and staying are the keys to finding a rich, new way of living and loving God.  And please don't worry that this book tortuously strains the dog metaphors to make spiritual points.  It doesn't. I really didn't want it to get cheesy.  So, blessings to all, feel free to order hundreds of copies of the book for all your friends--just kidding--and thanks for taking the time to read this!  --Ellen Vaughn.  
Always the perfect gift
