Publisher's Description

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 to Love is not a book just about marriage. The book covers how to build three key relationships in your everyday life; friendship, marriage and parenting (though the principles and strategies can be applied to any relationship).

    One of the chapters that really struck me was Day 5 (Staying at the table); in which it talks about the ping-pong method.

    "Communicating about tough issues is a lot like playing a game of ping-pong. In fact, table tennis is a perfect metaphor for two people staying at the table and hitting the conversation ball back and forth until they reach and understanding.......Wouldn't it be incredibly frustrating if you were playing ping-pong, and every time you served, your opponent let the ball drop off the table and never hit back? You really wouldn't have someone playing with you; the other person might as well not be there. In the same way, nothing is more frustrating in a relationship than bringing up a difficult issue and the other person always dropping the ball..."

    This is definitely a relationship book I would recommend to singles and couples; anyone who wants a deeper relationship with those they care about!!

    One Month to Love is a self help book to guide you along the path towards closer relationships with the people that mean the most to you. The book is broken down into 30 individual readings with the intent that you will read and focus on one reading each day for a month.

    The 30 day timeframe is too short. There is so much information in this book that I would suggest that one take 60 or 90 days rather than 30 to go through the book. The suggestions are so in depth and helpful that it would be best to read the chapter one day and then spend the next day or two practicing what you read and journaling about it. Each day includes questions at the end to challenge you to put into practice what you read.

    I also thoroughly enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each day. They give quotes by various authors, poets, politicians, etc. The quotes align perfectly with the topic of the day and provoke further thought from the reader.

    The authors cover the three most important human relations that one is likely to encounter: friends, marriage and parenting. The title is a bit deceiving; I thought that the book was a marriage self-help. I was excited when I began reading to see that the book focused on other important relationships.

    The back of the book contains a helpful index that guides you to the sections of the book that cover the type of relationship that you are focusing. So if you are looking for some encouragement as a parent, you can use the index to direct you to the relevant pages.

    I recommend this book to everyone because there is not one person out there that has perfect relationships. We all have areas that could be improved.

    Everyone longs to be treasured for who they are, understood, and valued, in spite of our weaknesses.

    While not written as a devotional book, One Month To Love: 30 days to grow and deepen your closest relationships could be used for that purpose and what better 30 days to choose that the ones leading up to Valentine's Day? What would you do if you knew that you had only 30 days to show someone how deeply you loved them, that in 30 days they would be stripped from your life or you from theirs? Even if you have more than 30 days with those you love, don't you want those relationships to be all they can be? One Month to Love by Kerry and Chris Shook is broken down into 30 short chapters, one for each day of the month, giving you ideas and tools you can use to ensure that those you care so much about know how important they are and that you have a truly meaningful relationship with them. Breaking it down into 30 days allows you to put into practice each strategy the Shooks bring to light before moving on to the next day.

    Might you be in the position of having fragile relationships in your life, whether it be with your spouse, children, siblings, or parents? One Month To Love will offer strategies you can use to help bring those relationship to a place of mending and restoration.

    The Shooks have broken the critical pieces of relationships into four categories, one for each week: The Art of Being All There, The Art of Acting Intentionally, The Art of Risking Awkwardness, and The Art of Letting Go. The ideas are simple, really, and easy to integrate into your everyday life--things such as being in the moment (definitely a shortcoming of mine), offering some intentional out-of-the box offerings of love, expressing your feelings, and letting go of hurt and pride. Uncertain how you will go about putting into practice these tools? Each chapter ends with a challenge box offering three ideas of how to do so.

    If you do have relationship that aren't what you hoped they would be or if you simple want to strengthen those relationships that are already strong and healthy, One Month to Love will give you insight that will encourage you and change the way you love, not just those you do love. Will it be easy? Probably not but what relationship that is valuable to you is easy? Relationships take time and effort and God designed us to be in relationships both with Him and others. Make the most of the time you have with those who matter most to you.

    I did receive this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way obligated to leave a positive review.
