Review: One Month to Live

Kerry & Chis Shook
Waterbrook Press

What if?  I've reached the age where grey silver is beginning to lighten my brunette hair.   Bifocals are a necessity.  My mother died young, just 51.  How long do I have?  How long do you have?  I selected this book to begin my year; because, I want to make my remaining days, months, and years meaningful for Jesus Christ, for me, for my family, and for those whom the Lord puts in my path.

The book is to be read over the course of thirty days.  That's a challenge for me; because, if I like a book, I often want to plow through it in a matter of a few days or even a few hours.  Dividing into daily readings gives a bit more time for reflection.  Ideally, this is a book that you journal your way through.  Each chapter has Make It Count Moments and Make it Last for Life questions that cause you to reflect on your life and how you're living it.

Kerry Shook and His wife Chris pastor a megachurch in Houston Texas.  The Shooks have had ample opportunity to minister to people in the last days, weeks, and months of their lives.  This book comes from the changes they've seen in people's perspectives and actions when they find that they only have a limited time to live.  Four principles are explored in this book:  Live Passionately, Love Completely, Learn Humbly and Leave Boldly.  I find this to be a worth my time book.  It's a New York Times Bestseller.

I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
