Yearning for a personal retreat with God?

Do you long to spend quality time with God?  Did you know that God desires to have meaningful conversations with us?  Through the gift of prayer, we can commune with God any time and anywhere.  Sometimes we just need to get away to a lonely place by ourselves and God and spend some quality time in His presence.  This can be difficult if you don’t know where to begin or what to do.

Jan Johnson, an author, speaker, spiritual director and retreat leader, has written “Living in the Companionship of God”, a personal retreat guide, designed to ignite a passion and desire for God and teach you to live life in the daily companionship of Christ.  She offers seven conversations that can be used over the course of a weekend or taken more slowly a day at a time.  Each conversation can be revisited as many times as you want and can be used in a group retreat or a solitary one.

This is not just a book you will read.  It is a book you will use over and over and over again.  You will discover a new relationship with God and with yourself.  You will find a more fulfilling way to communicate with God and will grow in your walk with Him.  It definitely won’t be put on a shelf to gather dust.
