As women, we are exhausted. Our hearts are being wrung out to dry–squeezed and yanked in every direction. We take care of everyone but ourselves. We've gotten lost in bedtime routines and our Costco lists. We have lost our voices in the storm of everyday life. We need to be reminded to reach inward and heed the quiet voice whispering, Stay.
This book is for anyone who longs for a connection with God and his people but can't seem to escape the haunting feelings of guilt, shame, loneliness, and fear. Through raw, authentic stories, (in)courage writer Anjuli Paschall invites you to stop running from your pain and to recognize that the deep end of your story is the way to intimacy with Christ. Alongside Anjuli, you will encounter a loving God who invites you to stay with him at the table of your soul, where you are free to spill the milk, to fumble through your words, to embrace the awkwardness and the joy, and to taste and see that he is good.

What Others Are Saying About Stay
“If you’ve ever been tempted to run away from life as a grown up (and honestly, who hasn’t?) then this book is for you. Throughout my decades of marriage and motherhood, anytime I’ve heard the jingle of the ice cream truck in our neighborhood I’ve felt the almost unbearable desire to run after it and then to just keep on running. Anjuli understands that urge. And then she puts into words all the reasons we choose to stay. Nearly two decades into motherhood and I needed all those reminders again today.”
—Lisa-Jo Baker, author of Never Unfriended and The Middle Matters and Cohost of the Out of the Ordinary Podcast
“Anjuli is the most gentle powerhouse. While some might see those two words as a paradox, I see them as the magic that make up my sweet friend. Stay is a reminder that we are never alone and that we are loved more than we could ever imagine—right where we are.”
—Manda Carpenter, author of Space: An Invitation to Create Sustainable Rhythms of Work, Play, and Rest
“I adore this book. Anjuli Paschall has delivered a sacred gift: by sharing her heart on the page, she’s shown me my own. In a world tempting us to escape and distract, she invites us to stay and remember, a practice that ultimately leads us home. This tender, personal book is a timely read for a lonely, doubting generation.”
—Emily P. Freeman, Wall Street Journal author of The Next Right Thing
“Because of God’s love for us, we have the courage to stay—whether that’s in ordinary messy motherhood, our emotions, or suffering and pain. Anjuli invites women into this story of the gospel like a vulnerable friend with a listening ear. May we have the courage to stay put and start small in our corners of the kingdom of God.”
—Ashley Hales, author of Finding Holy in the Suburbs
