My pastor, Kerry Shook and his wife Chris, gave away free copies of their new book to every person in church a few weeks ago. That’s why I love my church, Fellowship of The Woodlands. They give back so much to their congregation. The book is called One Month To Love.
Each day, I read a chapter, which is usually 5 or 6 pages, then follow up answering or acting on the three questions posed at the end of the reading. The book asks me to list what I consider my most important 3 key relationships and take the next 30 days to lay out a plan to improve on them. I write down my thoughts and outline an action plan. I am writing a vision statement. I’m learning to better handle conflict and disagreements while at the same time, keep love and intimacy growing.
Pastor Kerry has also set up a website that includes daily coaching videos where he and Chris share some of their own challenges in relationships. I’m on Day 13 and here’s the video for today: http://www.onemonthtolove.com/videos/video_day13.asp
It’s an awesome experience. I highly recommend the book and the opportunity to grow closer to those you love the most.
