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.
Reading this book is like sitting down with a good friend and discussing all God has done in our lives. I love how the author is so open and honest and shares from her heart.
Letitia shares how important it is for us to have Spiritual retreats with God. Our lives can get so busy, complicated and in a rut that we tend to forget how important it is to have this time with the Lord. She shares her own personal experiences, and the experiences of other women, as they had their own retreats with God.
I really liked how she gives us guidance on how to go on our own retreat. Whether for a day or two or a week, she gives us the guidance for creating our own retreat. She emphasizes that investing time to get away with the Lord is not an indulgence but a necessity and we will be hugely blessed by it.
I really liked this book and am planning on doing my own retreat. This book gives you a deep desire to spend time with God alone. I really love this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
