One Month To Live – 30 Day Challenge

One Month To Live

I don’t want to get to the end of my life
And find that I have just lived the length of it.
I want to have lived the width of it as well.
Diane Ackerman

What would you do if you suddenly learned you only had 30 days left to live?

Would you continue to invest your final moments in the activities that currently fill your days? Or, would you feel a sudden urge to re-evaluate your priorities and focus your energy on the people and projects that matter the most?

If you want to start living your life with more meaning, direction, and passion than you ever thought possible, than pick up Kerry & Chris Shook’s best-selling book, One Month To Live: Thirty Days To A No-Regrets Life and take The One Month To Live Challenge:

I commit with God’s strength to live
The next thirty days as if they are my last
So I can experience life to the full!

This book is divided into 30 daily readings that can help you to live more passionately, love more completely, learn more humbly, and leave more boldly. Each day’s reading is full of inspirational quotes and anecdotes, biblical encouragement, and questions for reflection and journaling.

This is a great book to start the New Year with and a fabulous alternative to the same old resolutions we tend to make year end and end out. The questions run deep. If you truly commit to the process, you may find yourself taking the challenge several times to reap the full benefit!
