Book Description

Retreat to Folly (Jesus on Folly Book 1)

What if you met Jesus on the beach? Susan, an exhausted mother of three, wonders if sleep deprivation has finally made her crazy after a beach walk turns into an encounter with Jesus. She thought coming on this retreat on Folly Beach, South Carolina would give her some rest and renewal from her hectic life and maybe an attitude adjustment which she badly needs. The retreat and a series of life-changing encounters with Jesus challenge Susan to leave behind her narrow view of herself and mothering. The retreat sessions teach her to put her past in the past and embrace her present. Her time with Jesus magnifies these lessons with spiritual healings. Can Susan accept that Jesus is interested in the state of her soul and the state of her motherhood, and they are more closely intertwined than she could possibly imagine?

This is a work of fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely A Blessing for Each Reader January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I hope this book gets out and touches the very soul of each individual that reads it as it did me. I just can not express what a joy it was for me to read every word of it. I plan on re-reading it because I love the personal feeling it gave me to have Jesus stand right in front of me and say the very things he said to Susan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely, heartfelt story of a mother's struggles February 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is such a wonderful story of a mother who takes a break from her busy life to slow down and reflect at a women's weekend retreat. All of us have felt that internal conflict of wanting to do what's best for our family but losing some of what we need in the process. How do we regain that without feeling selfish? This book helps to remind us of how we are loved, unconditionally, and how we can be strong for our families by being strong in our faith. Read this book if you need "a lift" (as my precious Mom always says) in your life as a parent. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful In-Depth Explanations April 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fabulous book! Beautifully written, and written in a way we can all identify with and understand. I agree with another reviewer that everyone should read this book! If you've ever wondered why things happen the way they do, this is the best book I've ever read that explains things in the Bible, and gives examples. I felt so much better after reading, and have already started to re-read. It also gives us the ability to see things in an entirely different perspective. The things we complain about (teenagers....) are gifts! Totally recommend, and hope she continues to write! I will probably buy copies of this one to hand out to friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational May 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Like most moms, Susan has spent all her time and energy on her family and now she's feeling run-down and put-upon and wonders if there is more to "Susan" than just "Mom" and "wife", so she attends a women's retreat held at her favorite beach. She gets great advice from the retreat leader and from the other attendees, but her greatest boost comes from talking to Jesus on the beach. No, really. Jesus is on the beach. This book could so easily have become overbearing and preachy. I don't like preachy fiction. If I'm in that mindset, I'll read the Bible or a devotional. Somehow, although probably half the book is conversations with Jesus, Fillion managed to make it not preachy. Instead, Retreat to Folly is a sweet inspirational book that will strike a chord with women everywhere.

I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely great read for Christian Women! September 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put down this book. It is very heart spoken and deals with emotions and feelings each of us feel in our daily lives. It is written in a richly entertaining fiction that reminds me a great deal of "The Shack". Soul searching and life meaning. I enjoyed this book and give hands down a 10 to Missy Fillion!
