Imagine that Jesus walks up to you, right now, and asks you to follow him. He doesn’t tell you where, and he doesn’t tell you what it will entail. He just asks you to come.
Will you say yes?
In her warm, conversational way, bestselling author and Proverbs 31 speaker Suzanne Eller shows how, when you say yes, you take a step away from the uncertainty, the to-do list, the worries and excuses. And you take a step toward the One who promises to delight and surprise, who will transform who you are, how you live, and how you impact the world.
So come. Walk with Jesus. Listen to his words. Step into the harder places of faith – but not alone. Learn who you are, but more so who he is to you.
The road will wind, your feet will get dusty. But you will discover the unexpected beauty of following where he leads. And that is worth everything.
Each chapter includes “Taking It Deeper” reflection questions, a Scripture, a Prayer, and Application steps for “Living As A Disciple”.
“We love to be invited. We want to be included. We long for more. Only Jesus can truly offer all of that to us—and he does. Suzie’s encouragement and insights give us what we need to say the most life-changing, soul-freeing yes our hearts will ever utter.”
Holley Gerth, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of You’re Already Amazing
“Every once in a while, God brings along a book you desperately need. Suzie Eller’s Come With Me brought a clarity and focus I’ve prayed for, reminding me that I don’t have to have all the answers . . . that I don’t need to figure out which way to go. My only job is to follow Jesus. He’ll take care of the rest.”
Joanna Weaver, author of Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World
“In Come With Me, Suzie Eller empowers us to take our daily time with Jesus beyond those morning moments and to use Jesus’ words to create momentum for change—change that begins first in us, so that like the twelve disciples, we can be a part of changing our world.”
Lynn Cowell, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer; author of Magnetic: Becoming the Girl He Wants
“In Come With Me, Suzanne Eller opens her heart to us, wrapping poignant examples from her own life around the biblical stories of the twelve disciples. Each chapter is a compelling invitation to follow Christ in much the same way these men did, putting aside the old and embracing the new. Heartache and hardship are addressed head on, and so are the joy-filled benefits of saying yes. As the author reminds us, ‘Following Jesus isn’t a charmed life; it’s a changed life.’”
Liz Curtis Higgs, bestselling author of Bad Girls of the Bible
“No matter your age or stage in life, when Jesus calls you as his thirteenth disciple, you have two options: run and hide, or pick up your nets and follow. Take it deeper with the discussion questions—great for small group or personal study!”
Christine Abraham, founder and ministry director of WomensBibleCafe.com
“Having spent most of my life searching for home, I found Eller’s words ushering me into a place of belonging. With kind- ness and transparency, she introduced me to a Savior eager to know me, eager to ease my burdens. For all who wonder if God knows their name, I urge you to pick up this book. You’ll know within minutes that he does.”
Emily T. Wierenga, founder of The Lulu Tree; author of Making It Home
“Following Jesus isn’t always convenient, but it is always worth the effort. Packed with powerful lessons from Jesus’ disciples, Come With Me provides an encouraging message of obedience and love that every woman needs to hear.”
Ruth Soukup, New York Times bestselling author of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life
“Suzie Eller’s concept of becoming the thirteenth disciple is grip- ping my heart! She weaves together a reminder that “Come with me” is still Jesus’ invitation today with thought-provoking teach- ing about the original Twelve who walked daily with him. The combination has left me longing to more fully accept his call.”
Amy Carroll, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer; author of Breaking Up With Perfect
“Come with Me is more than just another great read. It is an invitation to transformation. Suzie’s book fanned my faith to life. It made me hungry for the Word, desperate for a fresh encounter with my Savior, and grateful for the gift of his pres- ence. It will change the way you follow Jesus!”
Alicia Bruxvoort, Proverbs 31 Ministries writer
“Suzie’s realness and vulnerability about how much her faith grew when she decided to deeply follow Jesus in a new way is a shining example of how life-changing committed faith can be. Life-changing for us as disciples, but also life-changing for those we come in contact with along the way. This is an invaluable read for anyone who longs not only to know the Father, but to follow him wherever he leads, no questions asked.”
Tracie Miles, Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer; author of Your Life Still Counts
“Suzie pushes her readers to venture out, even into the deepest waters, to follow after Jesus. This intimate look at the Lord’s disciples, woven together with personal experiences, gives an intricate picture of what a life led by him can be. Her story is rich, full of life and grace.”
Krista Williams, Proverbs 31 Ministries First 5 writer
