About One Month to Live
What if you only had one month to live? How would you make each day meaningful? How would you relate to others differently? What would you do to make the rest of your life really matter?
With eye-opening insights and soul-inspiring truths, One Month to Live will challenge you to embrace the life God has entrusted to you and you alone, and to live it out moment by moment with wholehearted authenticity, honesty, and integrity.
Each chapter overflows with inspiring quotations, colorful true stories, and questions for reflection. The four sections, which can be read over four weeks, help you examine the core areas inside you that long to be exercised and expressed: how you’re made to live passionately, love boldly, learn from your mistakes, and leave a legacy that endures for generations after you’re gone. Complete with uplifting action points, each of the thirty chapters– one per day in a life-changing month–offers you fresh strategies for overcoming habits that mire you in mediocrity.
Open yourself to the challenge of embracing your mortality and being empowered to live each day engaged in being fully alive.
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

–Joel Osteen, pastor of Lakewood Church and bestselling author of Your Best Life Now
“Too many people live with regrets, missed opportunities, and dormant dreams. You don’t have to be one of them. Your life will be different if you apply the transformational principles in Kerry and Chris Shook’s One Month to Live.”
—Craig Groeschel, Founding Pastor of Lifechurch

What Kerry and Chris present in One Month to Live could be life altering.”
—Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager
“Through the ups and downs, routines and regimens of our daily existence, we can become complacent, even bored, with life. But God never meant for life to be boring. And in One Month to Live, Kerry and Chris Shook remind us of the true depth and meaning that God has in store for each of our lives. No matter where you are in your walk with God, this book will reveal to you a fresh and much-needed perspective. And at the end of this thirty-day journey, you will discover exactly what it means to truly live—daily…creatively…passionately!”
—Ed Young, Senior and Founding Pastor of Fellowship Church
