Publisher's Summary

The concept of My One Word is simple: Lose the long list of resolutions - all your sweeping promises to change - and do something about one thing this year instead of nothing about everything. Choose just one word that represents what you most hope God will do in you, and focus on it for an entire year. This single act will force clarity and concentrate your efforts. As you focus on your word over an extended period of time, you position yourself for God to form your character at a deep, sustainable level. Growth and change will result.

Author Mike Ashcraft, who has led his megachurch through this My One Word project for more than five years, and Proverbs 31 Ministries author and speaker Rachel Olsen, who has lived it, are encouraging, insightful, good-humored, yet realistic in this enjoyable read. Their stories of growth and change through My One Word will keep you motivated. Throughout the book you’ll also find words and stories of people just like you who have joined the My One Word movement and discovered the power of just one word.

One word to define your year

I have been choosing a word for several years and didn't even know it. This book has helped me to get more out of the word I've chosen for this year and given me ways to keep that word before me all year. I didn't love the narrator but was still able to focus on the content.

Inspiring but out of context and repetitive

This book is an inspiring new perspective on New Year's Resolutions, but it can also be taking the Bible out of context. Yes, it is better to focus on doing something about one thing than nothing about everything BUT there are swiss cheese like holes in this theology. Be carefully inspired by this book, but don't let it replace reading the whole of the Bible and working on your character in general.

A must read every year

For the past 3 years I have listened to this book every December to remind me not only how to pick My One Word, but why I should. Every year my Word has been a life line. The year I chose Connecting when we found out my husband had cancer. This past year where my word was encourage and I had to face another difficult year. And as I sit and reflect about this past year, I try to piece together what next year should be, this book is exactly the hat I needed to pull the pieces together to chose a word that while it excites me, also scares me a little because of all the things God could do with it. This book has every year given me the courage to step out in faith and let God do His work in me and around me. I consider this book,message its message, and the power of focusing on one word through the lens of God and His love for me, an essential part and foundation of the person I am Becoming, the best version of myself. It can be life altering if you let it. Are you ready to go on an amazing adventure? Then stop and read or listen to this book, pick a word, and open your eyes and heart to what God has in store for you.
