What do we do with everyday aches, disappointment, and pain?
We can run. Or we can stay.

It may sound counterintuitive to stay with our aches and disappointment. We prefer comfort, so our default response is to withdraw, avoid, numb, and neurotically fix. But what if Jesus is pulling out a chair and whispering, Stay?

Anjuli Paschall invites you to stop running from your pain and to discover that the deep end of your story is the way to intimacy with Christ. She extends a daring invitation to stay with your everyday aches, your guilt, your loneliness, your anger, your anxiety, your longings, and even your apathy. True power and transformation are found in the very places we resist the most.

It's here, in the staying, where we move from merely knowing in our heads that God loves us to believing it in our hearts.

Stay is an invitation to sit with God at the table of your soul--and be free.

"I adore this book. Anjuli Paschall has delivered a sacred gift: by sharing her heart on the page, she's shown me my own. . . . This tender, personal book is a timely read for a lonely, doubting generation." --EMILY P. FREEMAN, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Next Right Thing

"Anjuli wrestles with how we can show up to the life we have and not the life we thought we would have. She invites us to come out of hiding, to surrender our dreams, to be an outsider, and above all to feel the deep love of a Savior who is with us as we stay."--from the foreword by KATHERINE WOLF, author and speaker
