“If you want new urgency, fresh purpose, and a sharper focus for your life, then this book is for you. Read it and your future may be changed forever!”
—Lee Strobel, best-selling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for the Real Jesus

Are you suffering from “someday” syndrome—always waiting for someday when your schedule calms down, your finances improve, or your kids grow up so you can begin to live the life you’ve always dreamed of?

What if you learned you had just one month to live? Without a doubt, you’d stop living on autopilot and determine to make the most of every moment.

You don’t have any time to waste.

Why wait to answer the longings of your heart? In One Month to Live, Kerry and Chris Shook show you how to stop waiting for “someday” and start now to make each day really matter. With contagious enthusiasm and practical insights, you’ll learn how to apply the four universal principles of a no-regrets life:

LIVE PASSIONATELY, living each day as if it were your last.
LOVE COMPLETELY, showing others love that transcends and transforms.
LEARN HUMBLY, growing through your problems and pain.
LEAVE BOLDLY, creating a legacy that will impact generations.

Each of the thirty chapters—one per day in a life-changing month—offers fresh strategies and tools to experience revitalizing change in core areas of your life. Uplifting true-life stories and thought-provoking questions will inspire you to squeeze all you can out of each day you’ve been given.

Stop wasting precious time. Start living today as God created you to live—passionate, fully alive, without regrets.

Praise

Praise for One Month to Live

“So many of us waste our lives with ‘when and then’ thinking, believing that ‘when’ this or that happens, ‘then’ we will really start living and do something for God that really matters. That approach is guaranteed to leave you with regrets. At the end of your life, the only thing that will matter is whether you accomplished God’s purpose for your life. Jesus was just 12 when he said, ‘I must be about My Father’s business.’ Barely 20 years later, he could say to the Father, ‘I have completed the work you gave me to do.’ If we all had that kind of focus and concentration in our lives, there’s no telling what God could accomplish in the world! Kerry and Chris Shook want you to grasp that amazing insight: Embracing your mortality sets you free to live a meaningful and significant life without regret. One Month to Live is a great way to discover the purposeful, joyful, abundant life God created you to enjoy!”
Rick Warren, founding pastor, Saddleback Church, and author of international bestseller, The Purpose Driven Life

“Kerry and Chris Shook are world-class leaders whose lives and ministry have impacted untold numbers of people, including me. Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, One Month to Live will challenge you to passionately live the life you were made for and leave an eternal legacy.”
–Bill Hybels, Founding Pastor, Willowcreek Church and bestselling author of Too Busy Not to Pray

“If you want new urgency, fresh purpose, and a sharper focus for your life, then this book is for you. Read it and your future may be changed forever!”

I'll admit...I'm a procrastinator. So, when I got the chance to review a book called "One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life," I figured it might help me break some of those bad procrastination habits. The back cover summed me up pretty well: "Are you suffering from "someday" syndrome--always waiting for someday when your schedule calms down, your finances improve, or your kids grow up so you can begin to live the live...
