About the Book:

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).

My thoughts:

I recently celebrated a birthday and the night of my birthday I sat in bed and realized that as much as I say that birthdays does not matter at this age I am wrong.  Deep down I was hurt and upset that some people I knew would either call or text me on that day just did not.  Most of my birthday wishes came via Facebook.  I’m not saying that I wasn’t happy for those wishes but I do believe that it has become so much easier for people to “communicate” via social networks that we forget to put the work in physically, emotionally and mentally.  One month to Love came at my door just in the right time.  I knew after my birthday that I had to be failing as a friend because maybe if I was a better friend to someone, then maybe they would have made the effort to be a better friend to me.  After reading just the first day of this thirty day journey I knew I was lacking in some of relationships and I definitely needed to put in some work.

Broken down into four weekly sections Week One: The Art of Being All There, Week Two: The Art of Acting Intentionally, Week Three: The Art of Risking Awkwardness and Week Four: The Are of Letting Go.  Each week it made to help you focus on areas to build on your relationships with loved ones and friends.  By day three I already knew that I wasn’t being there for a lot of the people I was calling my friends.  I had to re-evaluate those friendships and correctly place people in their right categories.  I also loved that this book not only helps with renewing your relationships and making them stronger but it helps you make changes, learn ways to really be there for your loved ones and friends, and how to let go of things or people in your life that may be causing you problems.

If you’re ready to learn about yourself and ways you can improve the relationships around you then you need to pick up this book.  Don’t pick it up lightly because it really causes you to look within and find the things that you need to change and work on.  You may end up finding out you are not doing your part in those relationships.

    This sounds great, I feel to much of today is tied to the wires in our lives. This book sounds like something we all need to remind each of us the importance of life and the relationships we have. I think it is sad that we have drifted so far from the ‘hands on’ relationships. Thank you for sharing this. I am going to check it out and see how it will help our family.

    This book sounds like a great book for me. It seems we are so busy and forget about the importance of strengthening relationships these deays.

    This book sounds amazing. We all can benefit from stepping back and looking at how we treat others (as well as some treat us) this may be the new read I’ve been looking for!
