I have been on a retreat and found this book to be a perfect guide for a personal retreat, possibly small groups, home Bible study groups, and of course, church retreats. Use it as a guide to get closer to God. There are six sessions laid out for you with an introduction. This book can be completed in one day.
Background information such as word meanings and settings are given for each scripture passage. The closing for each session includes the same prayer. Questions and prompts are given with a space for readers to respond.
This is the first book of Jan Johnson's I have reviewed, I like her style and you can tell she has experienced a close relationship with God.

Who Is My Shelter? A book review.
This is a continuing saga of Gabrielle Fairbanks and how she rebuilds her life after being put out on the streets by her husband. Gabby has renewed her relationship with God and build relationships with the women at a homeless shelter where she was a resident. At this point in her relationship with the Lord, Gabby is learning to depend on Him instead of her friends. This book is an excellent read, you won't want to put it down once you start.
