God’s Romantic Getaway
I spent 29 years as a born again Christian, living with depression, searching for a deeper relationship with God, feeling invisible, not good enough and insignificant. Unable to be open and honest, I hid beind the mask of my success. No one wanted to hear me talk about feelings of hopelessness and suicidal thoughts. No one was intrested in the truth behind my suicide attemts. I felt heavy, I was angry with myself for being able to shrug my low mantal state off and push on. At war within I was losing hope in life and the God I served.
Pretending can take its toll on you and after 35 years I had had enough. Feeling trapped in a life of emotional pain and misery I put God to the test, unsure He would come to my rescue. I needed to saving and He needed me to get to a place where I was willing to do whatever it took to be saved and stay saved.

Some Book Reviews
“I first thought the book would be centered around the life of the author, mainly her experience, her testimony, but as I began to read, I saw experiences of my own life being described in many of the chapters, I found myself replacing her name with mine! And I broke down many, many times.”
Judy Regis, London, UK
“My wife got this book and I decided to take a look. I could not put it down. It felt so real and from the heart and I can say it was captivating and I have been inspired as a man to make my getaway. I am making plans to do it as I write. It is a longing to be closer to God. Thanks, Jemma for putting pen to paper.”
