Sometimes your best four-legged friend is also your best teacher

When you bring a new dog into your home, a wash of great joy can become a trial of perseverance as your furry pal chews, digs, yaps, and yes, piddles her way through every room in the house. Allison Pittman learned this all too well when she adopted a "tiny, shiny puppy of indefinable breed(s)." Stella wasted no time in turning her home upside-down as only a pup can.

As could be expected, six weeks of obedience school covered the much needed basics-sit, stay, come, and down. What Allison didn't expect was the spiritual benefit she would receive as each Saturday lesson revealed a fascinating metaphor. In this heart-warming, thoughtful, and often hilarious tribute to her beloved Stella, Allison Pittman shares how she came to understand what it means to follow the ultimate Master, including how to:

Sit!-at the feet of Jesus and listen for His voice
Drop It!-and let go of personal agendas
Come!-when it's time to run in the right direction
Stay!-in God's presence

In Saturdays with Stella, a slightly neurotic yet curiously adorable canine will not only capture your heart-she'll show you how captivating you are to God.
