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!

“Most women need an urgent care facility for their souls.”

getaway-with-god-book-reviewGetaway with God is a practical, easy-to-read resource for anyone who longs to spend specific time “hanging out with the One who knows you better than anyone else and loves you like crazy.

Letitia Suk lays out the reasons personal retreats are so vital, and then she tells us exactly how to go about having one! Not only do we learn applicable truths (I picked up several gems of practical spiritual truth for my own life in the first few chapters) but we also are given the tools so that we know what to do with what we’ve just learned.

She addresses common questions/details such as “Where do I go?”, how to get ready for a personal retreat, silence?, fasting?, friends?, and options for people who can’t afford to travel/stay anywhere. Suk also discusses the types of personal retreats (restorative, listening, goal-planning) and elaborates on the details of proceeding with each one.

Bottom Line: Whether you can only get away for the day or the weekend … or if you want to steal away for a longer 5-day retreat, Getaway with God by Letitia Suk gives you the instructions to accomplish this.  In addition to the “how to” guide, helpful resources and personal insight are included. She also gives some interesting insights into the concept of “Sabbath” that I’ve been pondering since reading that chapter. The writing style is conversational and soothing and the book will leave you craving time away to deepen your walk with Jesus.

(I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.)

My Rating: 4 stars / Good resource!
