One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life by Kerry Shook, Chris Shook

Take the 30-Days to Live Challenge!

What if you only had one month to live? How would you make each day meaningful? How would you relate to others differently? What would you do to make the rest of your life really matter?

With eye-opening insights and soul-inspiring truths, One Month to Live will challenge you to embrace the life God has entrusted to you and you alone, and to live it out moment by moment with wholehearted authenticity, honesty, and integrity.

Each chapter overflows with inspiring quotations, colorful true stories, and questions for reflection. The four sections, which can be read over four weeks, help you examine the core areas inside you that long to be exercised and expressed: how you’re made to live passionately, love boldly, learn from your mistakes, and leave a legacy that endures for generations after you’re gone. Complete with uplifting action points, each of the thirty chapters– one per day in a life-changing month–offers you fresh strategies for overcoming habits that mire you in mediocrity.

Open yourself to the challenge of embracing your mortality and being empowered to live each day engaged in being fully alive.

Who would have thought from a simple 30 Day Challenge that your life could be saved from a potentially fatal heart attack. When my wife and I took the thirty day challenge we both decided to shed a few pounds and work on a nutritional plan together to get into shape and have more energy in our mid-life. We planned a great anniversary vacation to Maui. After losing over a hundred pounds together I suffered a minor heart attack that the doctor said could have been fatal or with permanent heart damage had I not lost the weight due to the one month to live challenge. The whole experience has restored my passion for life. Instead of just existing we have discovered how to really live with meaning and purpose in each moment. Read the book for yourself and take the challenge. It could very well save your life. I'm thankful I did.

I bought this book after seeing it on a news program.There was a church that had taken this and made a program to change their members lives.I am not a very religious person so I was skeptical but intrigued.I started out reading a chapter every day,as they recommended.I tried to follow the basic tenets of each one in my daily life.After the first week I found I was trying to look at my life in a more positive way.I will probably reread this book many times and have given it a permanent place on my nightstand.This would make a good gift for someone who is struggling with their faith or personal issues.

As an avid reader, mainly history and non-fiction, this book is the most inspiring 'Study' of what is truly important. This text helps everyone get rid of 'what is not important' and focus on what 'is important'...... buy several copies because you will want to give this book as gifts to everyone you love.

I believe the book was very inspiring. There were moments in reading it when I had to just sit back an take a few seconds to think on my life and how I could have doen things differently or how I can live/look at things differently. It is one book that I feel all of us need to just read over. I do like the questions that are given at the end of each chapter. They give one a chance to review and look at one's own life. It's a book to be given to anyone - of all ages. From college age to middle age. We are never too old to make changes in our lives.

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly we lose perspective in life. It is very easy to get caught spending lots of time on the stuff that has little or no lasting impact on our lives. One Month to Live has helped remind me what it means to live life with the proper perspective. It has challenged me to look at life through the right lenses and begin to prioritize the things that really matter. I look forward to what the future holds as I pursue life with this new outlook.

One Month to Live presents a really compelling question--one that's a bit scary but impossible to put aside once you start thinking about it. The stories and tools it provides for evaluating priorities, recalling lost dreams and getting out of the 'someday syndrome' are life-changing. While reading it, I learned so much about myself, and did some impactful work in the Make it Last a lifetime section. Now, my goal is to turn the 30-day challenge into a whole new lifestyle and truly make it last.

One Month to Live by Kerry & Chris Shook I hope you have noticed I started the Purpose Driven Life Challenge and come to find out Rick Warren (the author of Purpose Driven Life) wrote the Forward to the book One Month to Live, How amazing, right!? One Month to Live is similar to the Purpose Driven Life layout. It gives you daily challenges (which I will be doing in the future) to complete with "make it count moments" questions and "make it last for life" actions. We all tend to live life as in we will be here forever, when in reality we are not granted to be on this physical earth tomorrow. So, why not live our life like tomorrow may be our last? Live passionately. Love completely. Learn Humbly. and Leave Boldly. Readers are encouraged to enjoy one chapter a day for thirty days while figuring out how they would live their life if they only had thirty days to live. It is so easy to read, awesome analogies and advice. I would suggest this book to friends/family. Be prepared for lots of self-examination. This book will reveal that you have a much-needed eternal perspective and you will be reminded of the depth and meaning God has in store for us. Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This book was very informative and thought provoking. It really stretched my efforts in trying to become a better person and made me look at what it must be like with little time left here on earth. WE all should live like this every day. For anyone who feels bound by their anger, guilt, hurt or pain or the past in general, I also recommend "When God Stopped Keeping Score." I thought that the book was just about forgiveness, I soon learned, it was about so much more than that. I was about how you should deal with friends, family and yourself and more importantly, how to keep these relationships strong when things go wrong. Having read it, I feel like a better person. Maybe because this book spoke to me and not down to me. I have read a lot of books that was written like I didn't know anything. What the author of "When God Stopped Keeping Score" does is talk to you like a friend. I needed that. You will understand why when you read it. It is available here on

This book will cause you to rethink the way that you are living your life and it will cause you to research why you do the things that you do and cause you to be truthful in your motives as well as compel you to be about the goals and task in your life that you have procrastinated at.

One Month to Live has inspired and challenged me to focus on what's most important in my life - my wife, my kids, my relationships with others - my relationship with God - Jesus Christ. Each chapter is full of 'Make it count' thoughts and action items that really drove me to focus on how to put my words and intentions into actions. This is an excellent book for anyone who is looking for purpose and clarity on what this life is all about and how to make best use of the limited time we have. I have already purchased several copies for friends and family!! A must read for sure!!

I really enjoyed this book. It really helped me figure out what was important in my life and what I could do without.  I was able to put things into perspective a little better in my life and  reminded me that people are important and not to take my family and friends for granted. I really enjoyed that One Month to Live has daily reading and journal writing. The journal writing was specific, which suits me because I am not one to open up and just pour out my heart on paper. I need direction to get me thinking and even praying sometimes. I find I get the most out of nonfiction books when they involve some sort application. If you are looking for a life changing book that is easy to read with practical advice and application, I highly recommend One Month to Live.

Living A Better Life This book “One Month To Live” is a great example of living on purpose and fulfilling your destiny. Each one of us has a pre-destined plan for our lives the moment we were created. This book will be a good witnessing tool as well as for those who recently gave their lives to Christ. This book reminds us not to take each day nor our lives for granted. We ought to live each day as if it was our last and find the favor God give us to be gracious. Even in the midst of unpleasant circumstances, we are yet covered by prayer and grace. We won’t always understand how God works, but there is always confirmation to assure us of His word. There is nothing like resting in the Lord and knowing that He has all your issues, cares and concerns in control. We have to step out on faith and believe in His word, and then you will see the works of the Lord. “I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.

Pretty good book. Hard to follow through since it's like a devotional and I have a difficult time reading only a chapter a day :) but there was a lot of great points throughout the book and enjoyed the questions/activities at the end of each chapter. Really puts your thoughts into perspective, thinking about how you've been living your life.

A great book to help you learn to live intentionally. This is a great opportunity to reflect on how you are living your life. Are you living for tomorrow or are you living for today?
