Product Description

The best-selling author of Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman's book Choosing to See and Denise Jackson's It's All about Him draws readers into a far deeper connection with God by issuing compelling invitations to come and rest--each an offer for a richer, simpler spiritual life in Christ. In this simplicity, we stop living in black-and-white and begin to enjoy an illuminating life in high-definition color. Readers will find this book full of much needed wisdom in an exceedingly stressful society that has become consumed with busyness and activity.

Publisher's Description

Jesus is inviting you, "Come to Me."

In a world where anxiety and chaos reign, it’s easy to forget the simplicity, the fun, the excitement of being in a close relationship with Jesus. Whether you are emotionally drained, spiritually hungry, or just looking for some fresh inspiration, it’s time to Come, Sit, Stay . . . and rest in His presence.

"Ellen Vaughn’s 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 is an invigorating book, not about religion, but about a relationship with the surprising God who invites us to come to Him and be uniquely refreshed. It is a fun read that goes deep."

ERIC METAXAS
New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

"I’ve always loved Jesus’ invitation to come to Him and find rest for our souls. This refreshing book is a great tool to understand more deeply the radical rest that only Jesus can give, and the shimmering, eternal perspective that can actually bring deep peace, right in the midst of our busy days."

JONI EARECKSON TADA
Founder of Joni and Friends and 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."

RANDY ALCORN
Best-selling author and founder of Eternal Perspective Ministries

Author Bio

ELLEN VAUGHN collaborated with Mary Beth Chapman, wife of Steven Curtis Chapman, on her New York Times bestseller Choosing to SEE, and coauthored various award-winning books with Chuck Colson. She also collaborated on the New York Times bestseller It’s All about Him, the story of Denise Jackson, wife of country music superstar Alan Jackson. Vaughn’s solo books include Time Peace, Radical Gratitude, and The Strand. She lives in a Washington, DC, suburb with her husband, Lee, their three teenagers, and two dogs.

Publishers Weekly

Vaughn, co-author of bestselling memoirs (Choosing to See; It's All About Him), steps out on her own with a series of reflections that don't add up to a clear whole. Vaughn writes very conversationally about how busy life is today, and that resting in Jesus – sitting in prayer or the study of scripture -- will simplify life. To make her case, Vaughn draws from popular culture (movies such as Jaws), Scripture (a lot), a variety of books (mostly classical Christian), and dog training. The result is a bit of a mish-mash, written in a breezy, girlfriendly tone ("so here's the deal"; "what the heck is the yoke?") that tries so hard to be accessible her style becomes Joel Osteen-like theology lite, but with more scripture references. This is a good idea – and an even better cover, featuring a handsome dog, a symbol that might have worked better if it had been used more exclusively. But the material is only enough for a sermon, not a book. (July 13) 2012 Reed Business Information

    The premise of this book is that we all need to spend time alone with the Lord. The author uses Biblical and real life examples to show ways to strengthen our relationship.

    The author reminds us that in this world where everything is right at our fingertips and we are all in a hurry we are commanded in the Bible to sit still. If we take the time to really study the Bible and spend time alone in prayer we will understand how the Lord is directing our lives.

    Parts of this book were cumbersome and took me awhile to get through. I think the whole book could have been edited better. That said I still gave the book a 4/5 stars. The information given will help you if you are feeling like you need help in your personal walk with the Lord.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
