Start of your New Year with a new kind of resolution that focuses you not on your past regrets, but on your greatest hope for the future. Make a real character resolution to become the person you most want to be. 'My One Word' is not about 'tweaking' your life, it's about a major transformation to become the whole person God designed you to be.
It's never too late to make a resolution for change any time of year. But even when you see the need and say the words, you need a little help to make that change become a reality. Mike Ashcraft and Rachel Olsen think the problem that's holding up your progress is in the choice of words themselves and they know from experience what to do about it.
'My One Word' is designed to help you identify what God is doing in your life, and provide you with a lens through which you can see and measure the growth that God is achieving in you.
The idea is simple: instead of making lots of well meant but vague resolutions that are bound to lead you into failure, choose one all powerful word that represents what you most hope for in God.
With 'My One Word', you lose the long list of resolutions - all your impossible promises to change. Instead, you do something about the one thing - the 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 give you clarity and concentrate your efforts. As you focus on your word over a worthwhile period of time, you'll 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-humoured, 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.
Includes discussion questions for use with the corresponding small group video curriculum: 'My One Word' DVD Study.
Don't waste your time making new years resolutions. Instead, focus on making a one word resolution instead. Choose to become what God wants you to become, not what you want to become.
