“As a dog lover and the owner of a ‘precarious puppy’ named Jake, I fell in love with Saturdays with Stella. I adored the way Allison Pittman took me into her relationship with an insecure dog, reminding me of the importance of accepting God’s love for just who I am. I’m already thinking of a dozen people who will love this book, and I can’t wait to share it!”
—TRICIA GOYER, author of fifteen books, including Generation NeXt Marriage
"Spend a Saturday with Stella, and you’ll have a new friend for life, along with an amazing perspective on what it means to walk with God.”
—SIGMUND BROUWER, author of Broken Angel and Who Made the Moon?
“If only we could all be like Stella—sitting, staying, and coming when our Master calls. Not that Stella is perfect, but though she sometimes regresses (backslides), disobeys (rebels), and wallows in the garbage (don’t we all?), she knows her master and always returns repentant and grateful for grace. Imagine that: a dog for a role model!”
—TAMARA LEIGH, author of Splitting Harriet and Faking Grace
“Humorous examples of Stella’s misconduct and learning lace the pages of Allison Pittman’s book, and each one parallels our relationship with the Heavenly Master. Commands from an
Intermediate Obedience canine class filter into scriptural charges whispered by a loving Father. Allison Pittman has woven a funny, touching, inspirational book. A must-read for those who long to walk with God and not strain at the leash.”
—EILEEN KEY, author of Dog Gone!
“Pittman has dug up a backyard treasure in Saturdays with Stella. Her wit, wisdom, and wagging-of-tales will cause you to laugh, sigh, and sit up in anticipation of the next chapter. Stella captures your heart like Pittman captures God’s truth. She reveals the essence of our need for spiritual obedience yet serves it in a way that makes us beg for more. I highly recommend you reserve a spot for this must read.”
—LINDA GOLDFARB, founder of Triune-Living Ministries, national speaker, syndicated radio talk show host, and columnist
“Saturdays with Stella is a delightful book for dog lovers. Allison Pittman uses the commands that she teaches her dog at obedience school to teach us how to ‘sit’ and ‘wait’ on the Lord. And although we may fail, just as Stella did at obedience school, God’s love and grace are sufficient for us all.”
—SUSAN OSBORN, director of the Christian Communicator Manuscript Critique Service and author of 29 books
