What if a simple day away could transform your life?
Does spending time with God sound like just one more thing to check off an ever-increasing to-do list? How are you supposed to fit in anything that threatens to be more time-consuming? Too often there’s simply no room to experience the intimacy, grace, and peace that God offers us.
Getaway with God does more than invite you to step away from life’s pressures to take a personal retreat. It shows you exactly why you must–for your sake and for your family’s.
With grace and warmth, Letitia Suk provides step-by-step guidance and the necessary tools to enable any woman on any budget to plan time away, whether it’s a quick, half-day break or a weeklong time of restoration. You’ll find detailed steps for preparation, including descriptions of different kinds of retreats and how to choose the best one for you, and you’ll learn ways to bring the renewal you experience home with you. Practical appendixes identify retreat centers nationwide and provide exercises and prayers to kick-start your getaway with God.
No matter what your season in life, the time for retreat is now!
Letitia invites women to chase the Intentional life. She writes and speaks of God’s renewal and restoration and offers platters of hope to women in each season of life. Tish is also a personal retreat guide and life coach in the Chicago area and moonlights as a hospital chaplain. You might run into her walking by Lake Michigan, browsing resale shops, or making up a new tradition. She blogs at hopeforthebest.org and is also the author of “Rhythms of Renewal.”
My Take: This book has given me the desire to plan my own Getaway with God. Since I am disabled and can't get away from home as easily., I plan on trying to dedicate one day a month to use the whole day dedicated to my get away with God. This book gives solid plans on how to schedule and conduct your own personal retreat with God. It also gives you ideas on what to do depending on what you want to accomplish with your retreat. I would highly recommend this book if you want to build a closer relationship with God by dedicating time alone with just you and Him.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.
