About One Month to Love

Improve your most important relationships—starting today.
 
At the end of the day in this all-too-short life, what matters most is relationships. Spouse, parent, child, friend—whoever your closest loved ones are, they warrant more than a passing glance; they deserve an intentional and meaningful relationship with you.
 
The One Month to Love thirty-day challenge is the greatest adventure you’ll ever take, helping you deepen the important relationships in your life. Authors Kerry and Chris Shook use timeless, biblical wisdom to walk through three stages of relationships: First Glance, Second Look, and Lasting Love. Many of us have launched into the exciting First Glance phase. When we then tiptoe into the Second Look, reality sets in, and often friendships weaken, families suffer, marriages crack. Now learn how to experience the deep, satisfying lifelong relationships of lasting love.
 
All it takes is one chapter a day.
 
If your marriage is broken, restoration is possible. If your friendship is frail, a fresh start is possible. Even if you’ve made mistakes in all your relationships, lasting love is still possible. “With God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26).
 
Includes a weekly focus and daily readings to guide you through the process.

One Month to Love is a wonderfully written, easy to read book. Once a day you read a short, to the point, chapter and at the end of the chapter there are a few questions for you to journal and answer (or put into action). Honestly, this book is written so well! The authors gives amazing advice, and relevant short stories. I really enjoyed reading this book, and found myself reading several chapters at once (rather than one a day). One Month...
