Are you suffering from “someday” syndrome–always waiting for someday when your schedule calms down, your finances improve, or your kids grow up so you can begin to live the life you’ve always dreamed of? Consider how your perspective would change if you found out you had just thirty days to live. After the initial shock, you’d probably resolve to squeeze all you could out of the days that remain. You’d stop wasting precious time, and you’d throw yourself into becoming the person God intended you to be.

Why wait to answer the longings of your heart? You can live this way now, thriving in a life of passion and purpose. In ONE MONTH TO LIVE, Kerry and Chris show you how to stop waiting for “someday” and start making each day really matter. By taking their 30-Day Challenge, you’ll learn what it means to make the most of your time on earth and live life with no regrets.

In ONE MONTH TO LIVE, learn the four principles for living a no-regrets life: Live Passionately (living each day as if it were your last); Love Completely (showing others love that transcends and transforms); Learn Humbly (growing through your problems and pain); and Leave Boldly (creating a legacy that will impact generations). ONE MONTH TO LIVE explores these universal principles and provides questions for reflection to help you examine the core areas of your life and ultimately live the life you were made for.

Praise for One Month to Live

“So many of us waste our lives with ‘when and then’ thinking, believing that ‘when’ this or that happens, ‘then’ we will really start living and do something for God that really matters. That approach is guaranteed to leave you with regrets. At the end of your life, the only thing that will matter is whether you accomplished God’s purpose for your life. Jesus was just 12 when he said, ‘I must be about My Father’s business.’ Barely 20 years later, he could say to the Father, ‘I have completed the work you gave me to do.’ If we all had that kind of focus and concentration in our lives, there’s no telling what God could accomplish in the world! Kerry and Chris Shook want you to grasp that amazing insight: Embracing your mortality sets you free to live a meaningful and significant life without regret. One Month to Live is a great way to discover the purposeful, joyful, abundant life God created you to enjoy!”
Rick Warren, founding pastor, Saddleback Church, and author of international bestseller, The Purpose Driven Life

“Too many people live with regrets, missed opportunities, and dormant dreams. You don’t have to be one of them. Your life will be different if you apply the transformational principles in Kerry and Chris Shook’s One Month to Live.”
—Craig Groeschel, Founding Pastor of Lifechurch

Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ

The questions asked and the ‘Make It Count Moments’ in this book will stir your soul and inspire you to begin, today, to make the rest of your life more meaningful. What Kerry and Chris present in One Month to Live could be life altering.”
Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager

“Through the ups and downs, routines and regimens of our daily existence, we can become complacent, even bored, with life. But God never meant for life to be boring. And in One Month to Live, Kerry and Chris Shook remind us of the true depth and meaning that God has in store for each of our lives. No matter where you are in your walk with God, this book will reveal to you a fresh and much-needed perspective. And at the end of this thirty-day journey, you will discover exactly what it means to truly live—daily…creatively…passionately!”
Ed Young, Senior and Founding Pastor of Fellowship Church
