Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A gifted writer. The light of scripture shines again through the prism of beauty and story.

-John Ortberg, best-selling author of If You Want To Walk on Water You Have To Get Out of the Boat and When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box

Jane Rubietta's books are as compelling as her platform presentations. She crafts her content with well-chosen word pictures and profound depth that beckons the readers to ‘come along’ as she leads them into a vibrant and transcendent relationship with Jesus. This book will deepen your faith.

-Carol Kent, speaker and author of A New Kind of Normal

Another powerful read on encounters with Jesus, self, those we love, and those we are trying to like. Jane addresses hope, healing, attitudes, needs, and longings with grace, grit, and God-centered wisdom. Each chapter ends with challenges and tools that are highly effective in helping us achieve deeper levels of intimacy. Come Along invites us to take the Lord's hand and walk through life with courage, anticipation, and zeal.

-Ellie Lofaro, co-author of Spaghetti for the Soul and author of Leap of Faith

Come Along made me face the question, Am I following a set of phony rules and expectations in my attempts to be a ‘nice' Christian, or am I becoming the woman God imagined me to be? With exquisite writing, Jane takes my real, everyday life in the 21st Century and shows me how Jesus is relevant and present in every moment. Her unshakeable conviction in God's goodness and love convinced me to throw out my misguided attempts to be ‘nice’ and engage in an authentic relationship with Christ. ‘When a woman encounters Jesus, she is changed, ' Jane insists’-and I was.

–Lynn Austin, four-time Christy Award winner and author of Until We Reach Home

How does Jane Rubietta know me so well? Her refreshing honesty in Come Along promises to help you get in tune with who you are on the inside, and who God is in your life. She helps us slow down enough to reflect, draw closer, and journey into a more intimate faith experience with the God who loves us more than we can ever imagine.

-Jill Savage, founder of Hearts at Home and author of Real Moms...Real Jesus

Jane Rubietta has done it again Every time I read her books, I come away challenged, comforted, and encouraged to stop, wait, listen, and come closer to Jesus. I am a better person after reading the words of wisdom in Come Along.

-Pam Farrel, author of more than twenty-five books, including best selling Men are like Waffles, Women are like Spaghetti and Ten Best Decisions a Woman Can Make
