“I Went on a Retreat 365 Days In a Row!”

My focus with this blog entry today is to advertise for my first ever book that I am hoping to have published by the end of this calendar year or sometime in the first half of 2024. If you would like to read the “Introduction,” “Prologue,” and “Summary,” please visit YourWillBeDone.life and then click on the “Retreat Book” tab.

The journey of writing a book began for me on June 1, 2017. Before this date, I always wondered if anyone had published any writings on Jesus and His taking breaks from what He experienced daily during His three-year ministry: teaching, preaching, breaking bread with the apostles, performing miracles, fellowship with Mary His mother, etc. Well, after I went online and conducted some research on this topic, I quickly found out that there was not that much at all in terms of Jesus going on a “retreat” to refresh Himself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually, to take a break from everything that He experienced on a given day, and to reorganize all of his thoughts and goals to go back into society at that time to live another day.

With the idea in my mind that Jesus took breaks each day of His lifetime, I thought that it would be a fun idea to document daily retreats that I experienced each day in order to take breaks from whatever I was dealing with on a daily basis in order to refresh myself mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually so that I was energized to go out into the world and “tackle” any life situations that I might experience on a daily basis. Well, this is exactly what I did. My first retreat was at a McDonald’s in Morrisville, PA enjoying a coffee and snack, and listening to contemporary music, after I had dropped off my son, Thomas, at his baseball practice before his game. I documented these retreats each day until May 31, 2018. I spent much time since then working on my manuscript. I am currently working with Christian Faith Publishing, Inc. to have my work in print in the later part of 2023 or the first half of 2024.

When you have the opportunity, please take the time to read the “Introduction,” “Prologue,” and “Summary” of my work by visiting the website YourWillBeDone.life and then clicking on the “Retreat Book” tab. I hope that these three items strike an interest in you so that you will purchase my book in the near future with the hope of my work helping you learn more about your faith, live your life the ways in which Jesus Christ taught us, and grow closer to Jesus Christ. Prosit!
