Are you busy all the time?  Is it hard to spend time with God?  Perhaps it’s time to go on a personal retreat with God.

Letitia Suk has written a book that gives guidance and tips on how to take a personal retreat.  There are ideas for:

  • the amount of time that works for you.
  • different types of retreats.
  • how to pray.
  • what to do on the different days.

About the Author-

Letitia Suk and her husband have four adult children and currently live near Chicago.  She is a life coach, speaker, and author.  Her website is

My thoughts-

Sometimes I feel as if I have no time to myself and no quality time with God.  I think it would be fun, restful, and restorative.  I wouldn’t like to leave my family for a time, but it would probably be the best for all of us. 

There were many different ideas and helpful tips.  I really liked the part where Suk discussed exactly what to do on a five day retreat.  She told her story, gave a sample schedule, and different areas (ex. health, home, and work).

The only part I didn’t agree with was the Sabbath.  The Sabbath is much more important than she made it out to be.  It is one of the ten commandments, so it must be followed.  You also need to make sure you know which is the true day.

I thought this was a good book.  I would really like to work on planning my retreat.  I suggest all women take time for themselves.
