    One Month to Love is a self help book to guide you along the pat

    One Month to Love is a self help book to guide you along the path towards closer relationships with the people that mean the most to you.  The book is broken down into 30 individual readings with the intent that you will read and focus on one reading each day for a month. 
     The 30 day timeframe is too short.  There is so much information in this book that I would suggest that one take 60 or 90 days rather than 30 to go through the book.  The suggestions are so in depth and helpful that it would be best to read the chapter one day and then spend the next day or two practicing what you read and journaling about it.  Each day includes questions at the end to challenge you to put into practice what you read.
    I also thoroughly enjoyed the quotes at the beginning of each day.  They give quotes by various authors, poets, politicians, etc. The quotes align perfectly with the topic of the day and provoke further thought from the reader.
    The authors cover the three most important human relations that one is likely to encounter: friends, marriage and parenting.  The title is a bit deceiving; I thought that the book was a marriage self-help.  I was excited when I began reading to see that the book focused on other important relationships.
    The back of the book contains a helpful index that guides you to the sections of the book that cover the type of relationship that you are focusing.  So if you are looking for some encouragement as a parent, you can use the index to direct you to the relevant pages.
    I recommend this book to everyone because there is not one person out there that has perfect relationships.  We all have areas that could be improved.

    A few weeks ago I asked to review the book One Month to Love: 30

    A few weeks ago I asked to review the book One Month to Love: 30 Days to Grow and Deepen Your Closest Relationships. I figured February would be a great month to work on becoming closer to my family and other loved ones that are meaningful and essential to my life and I can tell you this isn't something I can do on my own.
    I was a little leery of the book, thinking that it would be a little hokey or, like those diet books that guarantee results, a little too big on the hype and too focused at the results at the end of a certain amount of days. I am glad that it is not. I am glad that it seems approachable and contradicts those books that want to be quick fixes.
    The book is divided up into 4 week segments:
    The Art of Being Free
    The Art of Acting Intentionally
    The Art of Risking Awkwardness
    The Art of Letting Go
    The authors of the book want you to approach the book as a challenge.
    "Just read a chapter each day....At the end of each chapter you'll find the Lasting Love Relationship Challenge, which is designed to help you take the insights from that day and apply them to your key relationships."
    They even have a website where you can log on and monitor your own progress. I look forward to delving into this easy to understand and purposeful book as I grow deeper into my relationships with those that matter the most.
