One Month to Love

One Month to Love One Month to Love by Kerry & Chris Shook. They also wrote the book One Month to Live, I wrote the book review for that one, also.

One Month to Love is similar to One Month to Live, but instead you are learning how to build three key relationships in your everyday life. You have 30 daily challenges to grow and deepen your relationships, which I will be breaking down through in March.  Kerry and Chris really have great suggestions and encouragement; they are so in-depth, and helpful. They even have questions at the end of each day for you focus on what you learned that day, and how you can journal about it.

Everyday they give you quotes about relationships, and I personally enjoyed them. I even shared a few with my friends as I read the book. I will also share with you all in March. The quotes also lined up with their everyday topics.

However, the only downfall I found was that when I suggested this book for a review, I thought “One Month to Love” would be something about Marriage, something to “help” or a guide about it, especially with it being about February. It turned out to help with not just marriage, but with children, family, and other relationships in everyday life.

One of the chapters that totally hit me in the face was “Practicing the Art of Being All There”
Are you filling listening to the people you love when they talk, or you thinking about 100 other things as they talk, and you seem like you are there, but not really “listening”.

If you love devotional, or Self-help books, I would totally recommend this one. I loved it, and I am sure you will too. You don’t have to break this book down into thirty days, you could easily read it in a day or so.

One Month to Live

 One Month to Live by Kerry & Chris Shook
I hope you have noticed I started the Purpose Driven Life Challenge and come to find out Rick Warren (the author of Purpose Driven Life) wrote the Forward to the book One Month to Live, How amazing, right!?

One Month to Live is similar to the Purpose Driven Life layout. It gives you daily challenges (which I will be doing in the future) to complete with “make it count moments” questions and “make it last for life” actions.

We all tend to live life as in we will be here forever, when in reality we are not granted to be on this physical earth tomorrow. So, why not live our life like tomorrow may be our last?

Live passionately. Love completely. Learn Humbly. and Leave Boldly.

Readers are encouraged to enjoy one chapter a day for thirty days while figuring out how they would live their life if they only had thirty days to live. It is so easy to read, awesome analogies and advice.

I would suggest this book to friends/family. Be prepared for lots of self-examination. This book will reveal that you have a much-needed eternal perspective and you will be reminded of the depth and meaning God has in store for us.

Restless in Carolina

  Restless in Carolina by Tamara Leigh, Tamara began her writing career in 1994 and is the best-selling author of more than a dozen novels, including Splitting Harriet (ACFW Book of the Year winner and RITA Award finalist), Faking Grace (RITA Award Finalist), and Leaving Carolina. A former speech and language pathologist, Tamara enjoys time with her family, faux painting, and reading. She lives with her husband and their sons in Tennessee.

Restless in Carolina is about a tree-hugging’, animal loving Bridget Pickwish-Bunchanan. Bridget is a widow at the early age of thirty-three, and she is still struggling with the passing of her late husband, not wanting to let go of her wedding ring, or the moving forward into the dating ring.

I can say that I loved Tamara’s writing skills, and her way to make you feel the emotions of Bridget. The first person view is a great concept and I loved it, however, the story line seems to be stuck for awhile, and I got bored. I would pick up the book and read it for a few minutes and I could easily put it down to do something else. On another hand, maybe I should have read the other two books of this series before jumping into the third book. Maybe one day I will be able to sit down and get through this book once and for all, but right now… It just doesn’t seem interesting and definitely not a page by page heart seeker.
