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; and 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. 1. Language: English.

Major Tyson Bradford had two mistresses - his family and his career. He loved them both. For the first time, the two were demanding his presence at the same time. He'd failed to secure his ailing eighty-year-old Aunt into his home. All the traditional methods failed to produce the results he needed. Lynay's four-year-old son had severe asthma. Fear strangled her each time he fell gasping to breathe. Her minimum wage job barely kept up with his escalating medications costs. Medicaid only went so far. Her baby needed more help than she could provide. Anne, her best friend suggested something unconventional, a contract marriage. Anne's brother's deployment would take place in less than a week. Desperate, Tyson and Lynay agree to a marriage that would meet both of their pressing needs. His only requirement: absolute fidelity during their marriage. Since Lynay hadn't been sexually active since the birth of her son, she agreed. Everyone got what they wanted, right? Wrong. Allison, Tyson's ex-wife refused to accept not only their divorce of three years, but Tyson's re-marriage as well. An uncommon path of destruction pummeled Tyson's Achilles heel. Seeds of deception were sown, and ultimately led to the breakup of their marriage. But to a woman scorned, the breakdown of the faux marriage was simply gravy. She intended to teach him a lesson.
