I have a fun book to tell you about, Getaway with God by Letitia Suk. I have never really thought about having a practical how-to guide for taking a personal retreat with the Lord but that is what this book is and it's great! Both women that are new in their faith and seasoned believers will all benefit from Suk's experiences and practical advice for having a personal retreat. It really resonated with me how personal retreats can be for different reasons at different seasons in life. I personally feel that a resting and relaxing retreat with the Lord is something that I need physically, spiritually, and emotionally at this point in my life. After reading this book, I am empowered and encouraged to start planning my own getaway with God - it has been far too long!
More About the book:
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!
