Whether you're in the middle of a conflict without resolution or wondering how to enter into a friend's pain, this book will serve as the guide you need to move through challenges and grow closer to God. And it starts by inviting God and others to simply "come sit with me."

"Our lives can often seem so disconnected. What I love about Come Sit with Me is it reminds us that God intends for our worlds to collide--both lovingly and distinctively. Our differences, our doubts, and our desires are actually designed to lead us individually and collectively into our destiny. A must-read for all who desire heaven on earth."

Marshawn Evans Daniels, Godfidence® coach, TV personality, reinvention strategist for women, and founder of SheProfits.com

"Encouraging, inspirational, and practical--these are the first three words that come to mind as I read Come Sit with Me. If ever there was a time we needed a book on loving through disagreements, living with discomfort, and delighting in our differences, it's now. This book is a friend as well as a gentle guide for those of us neck-deep in these struggles. Hearing the stories of others doesn't solve all our problems, but the wisdom of those who've been where we are helps. And the wisdom of those who point us back to Jesus at every twist and bend? Well, that is one way God redeems those heartbreak moments. We all struggle. I'm grateful for the storytellers who allow God to use their suffering to minister to others. I needed this book. My guess is you need it too."

Kris Camealy, author of Everything Is Yours and founder of Refine {the retreat}

"Come Sit with Me is a beautifully written collection of stories covering relevant and challenging scenarios we face today. A wide range of women from different life stages, experiences, and ethnic backgrounds share from their personal lives in helpful and hope-filled ways. Honest, relatable, and practical, the pages in this book contain Scripture-based principles and perspective to help readers navigate differences, disagreements, and discomfort."

Vivian Mabuni, speaker, podcast host, founder of Someday Is Here, and author of Open Hands, Willing Heart

"In Come Sit with Me, incredible women from all walks of life invite us to sit with them as they have hard conversations with Jesus and wrestle through issues of faith that we all can relate to. While reading this book there were several times I simply would say 'Amen!' because someone would speak specifically to an issue of my heart."

Jennifer Lucy Tyler, Bible teacher, founder of SoulCircles Ministries, and national presenter for Logos Bible Software
