What would you do if you were faced with only 30 days to rebuild, repair or strengthen the relationships in your life? So often, we forget that our lives are not infinite. We have only a short time to make the most of our relationships and our presence on Earth. I was recently given the opportunity to review One Month to Love: 30 Days to grow and deepen your closest relationships by Chris and Kerry Shook. I was curious to read One Month to Love—so, how did it stand up to review? We'll be submitting this as our letter O entry in the Blogging from A to Z Challenge as well--O is for One Month to Love.
One Month to Love is a great self help guide. Many of us know that our close relationships need work and commitment—but, once they begin to fail or communication breaks down, it becomes too difficult to even begin the repair process. One Month to Love begins by having readers analyze close relationships, choose only three to strengthen—and proceeds to offer daily tips, insights, and encouragement to guide readers through a month of relationship building.
Each chapter ends with further guidance. Rather than leaving readers to interpret and find ways to incorporate each day’s text into life, each chapter ends with well planned exercises and activities to further the reading. I would suggest using with a journal—many of the activities suggest further inquiry and taking notes really helps focus thoughts.
One Month to Love supports all of the relationships in your life. At first glance, I assumed that the book was aimed at married couples. While it certainly supports marriages, it’s written to strengthen other relationships too.
Would I recommend One Month to Love? I think almost everyone neglects important relationships at one point or another—to some degree! If you need some guidance in strengthening even fairly strong relationships—or finding a starting point to rebuild broken relationships, I think this book offers great insights.
