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!

Overworked and overwhelmed, many of today's Christian women live their lives at an exhausting pace--without any margin for refueling. Even in their strongest spiritual seasons, most long for more intimacy and time with their heavenly Father. But with the demands of modern life, simply getting up earlier in the day to fit in a devotion is no longer a viable--or fulfilling--option.
What if there was a way to plug in and recharge your soul, not just your smartphone? What if a simple day away could transform your life? Getaway with God invites readers to step away from the incessant pressure of deadlines and demands to spend time with God. More to the point, it walks women through each step of designing their own retreat--whatever kind is needed.
Letitia Suk provides step-by-step guidance and the necessary tools to enable any woman to plan an extended time away on any budget. Part one offers detailed steps for preparation, including descriptions of different kinds of retreats and templates for how to use each hour. Part two focuses on designing a five-day life-review retreat, including guided questions and ways to bring the retreat home. The practical appendixes identify retreat centers nationwide and provide a checklist for what to bring. Suk's warm, mentoring voice will assure readers that, no matter what their season in life, the time for retreat is now.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Encouraging readDecember 4, 2016KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Suk compares a retreat to "snuggling up to God and letting Him love on you." (p.21) And it isn`t as daunting as you might think with this book as your guide. It is really well laid out with lots of practical advice and plenty of options since one size doesn`t fit all when it comes to personal retreats.
Easy-to-read and full of great tips, it`s clear the author wants women to succeed in their own personal `spiritual spa` day. And she`s practical too, providing step-by-step guides to different kinds of retreats. There`s a great Inductive Bible Study example that I`m going to incorporate into my daily scripture study, retreat or no retreat! An uplifting, doable guide to help any woman draw deeper into relationship with God.
My thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group and Kregel Publications for providing me with a copy of this book.
Carrie ShindorfCosby, MissouriAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5What A Great Resource For Women ~December 3, 2016Carrie ShindorfCosby, MissouriAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Wow ~ this is a book you don't want to miss if you are weary. Letitia Suk shares just how important it is to get away and renew ourselves in the Lord. She shares how we all have way to much to do on our never ending to do list and God gets left out. She not only challenges her readers to get away from the busyness of life but to plan a personal retreat just for the purpose of spending some alone time with God. She gives great insight on just how to do that. It can be a retreat planned away form home or a retreat planned at home. Either way the purpose is to come away refreshed and ready to face life recharged. I really enjoyed this book and am thinking about planning a mini retreat soon. This is a great resource for ladies in ministry.
Frosty4 Stars Out Of 5Time to GetawayDecember 3, 2016FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Getaway with God is full of great information on how to create a personal retreat. The author is experienced and offers practical advice. I like that she gives different versions and types of retreats. She shares good information for everything from a few hours of quiet to a full five days away from everything. She gives guidance on what to take and ways to focus on God. One of the things I would enjoy is getting out and walking in nature and having someone else cook for me. Letitia shares about her own experiences with retreat and what worked and what didn't. If you're planning a personal retreat or hope for one in the future this is the perfect book. This would also be a great addition to a library. I received this book free from Litfuse.

bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great resource for personal retreatsDecember 1, 2016bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We need to be spiritually recharged from time to time. We don't have to wait for that annual retreat the church offers. Suk encourages us to regularly plan our own times of spiritual restoration.
Suk tells her story of participating in retreats and gives excellent suggestions for crafting our own. She gives step by step suggestions on how to design and experience a personal spiritual retreat. She explains why we need them, where to go (out of the house), and how to prepare for it. She includes different kinds of retreats and what to do at them.
Suk has such a wide variety of ideas that this book could be used by anyone wanting to experience a personal retreat. She has suggestions for spiritual content, like character studies, Lectio Divina, goal setting, etc. She includes instructions on silence, food, creating schedules, seeking spiritual direction, and more. Her suggested plans cover retreats lasting one day to several days.
I appreciate Suk distinguishing the typical group retreat from the ones she suggests. Group retreats are often more about speakers and social interaction than having time alone with God. Her suggestions for personal retreats are more what I have had in mind for personal renewal. I like her suggestions of reviewing spiritual milestones, identifying stuck points, and looking to the future. She has included a number of questions to ask ourselves. They would also be good questions for an annual review of where we are in life.
I also like Suk encouraging readers to experience Sabbath, creating a rhythm of renewal. That could be a weekly time of spiritual restoration we can all experience. Suk also answers a number of questions readers might have about personal spiritual retreats.
This is a good book for people who have wanted to go on a spiritual retreat and did not know how to make it happen. With practical suggestions for getaways of different lengths and places, it is a great resource. Suk writes that she has offered a buffet of ideas on how to get away with God. (141) I agree. There are so many possibilities included in this book, every person desiring time away with God will find resources here.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through Litfuse. My comments are an independent and honest review.
