Come Sit a Spell
An Invitation to Reflect on Faith, Food, and Family
Come Sit a Spell takes you back to a time when people’s lives were real and raw, where folks lived full of hard-worn love. Through her personal reflections on growing up in the Missouri Ozarks, Marilyn Jansen reminds us that God’s love comforts and guides us even when the pantry is empty. These stories, based on memories from three generations of kitchens, come fully baked with a recipe that just about anyone can master, and ingredients that are probably already in your cupboard. Come Sit a Spell is about people and food—not the glamorous kind, but the everyday, love-’em-with-all-you-got kind that is the foundation of country homes across America.
