Is it possible for one day to totally change your life? Yes, if that day is spent alone with God, instead of God just being part of your to-do list. Suk’s latest is designed to encourage the reader to take a personal retreat to spend time with God. It is a step-by-step guide to help you plan your trip, which could be from a few hours to a few weeks. It doesn’t have to be long, but it should be a time away from the daily demands so that the focus can be on strengthening a relationship with God.
Suk shares personal experiences to help the reader determine the best way to plan their own retreat. While this book is titled in a way to appeal to women, men could benefit from this, as well. The book does not provide a one-size-fits-all approach. Relevant scripture is woven throughout. Numerous resources are provided, including a sample schedule for a retreat and feedback from other women. If you are looking for way to recharge, this just might be the book for you.
While this book wasn’t quite what I was expecting, it was an enjoyable read nonetheless. It is well-organized and detailed and likely to be valuable for those looking for a spiritual retreat.
