I've been reading a book that just came out from one of my favorite authors, Debbie Macomber, called One Perfect Word. It's about focusing the entire year on just one word and making that your personal focus for the year. Praying on it, seeking God's will for that in your life and just studying it. The book is really eye opening in that Debbie is very honest and forth coming on her journey to becoming a writer. Prior to having her books published, she wrote in journals a lot about her struggles and thoughts. Looking back at her own writing, she can see where God has taken her through each year and thus the reason why the personal focus on the "one word" has come into play. She shares some of those word years with the reader in the book and encourages us to do the same. Along the way she shares with you how to go about picking your word of the year. Maybe it's something that keeps coming across your prayers, conversations and Bible study. Perhaps you should talk to friends and see what they believe it should be. She offers some interesting ways to go about seeing how that word will play out during the year as well from having it engraved in stone, carrying a reminder with you to pray about it during your days or having it written on a card or plaque. I think the idea is beautiful and can help us to focus on smaller things, not bigger ones like committing a chapter or verse to memory each week but rather learn to see how God is working on your life through one simple word. Along with the fourteen words that Debbie shares with you in this book along with personal stories, are also scriptures, her written prayers from her journals, and even some practical tips on how to make the word come alive in a different mediums. This book is going to be an exciting journey for me this year and one I am so happy to be able to share with my readers. I received this book compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster for my honest review and think it's a must read for anyone looking to enhance their Bible Studies! I rate this one a perfect 5 out of 5 stars and have started my own personal journey this year with the word TRUST!

I read this on my recent vacation and love the idea of a word a year- found my word and immediately saw evidence that it was the right one- chose "peace" - the cabin next to ours in Yosemite was named "Serenity"! Looking for a rock to put in my garden now! Thank you Debbie Macomber!

A great book. It is such a great help to me. My word last year was Restoration and believe me I have been going through a lot of restoration.

My niece recommended this to me. It is so different from Macomber fiction writing, that I wasn't certain that I would like it. It is very moving and spiritual. It s not a" read through". One needs to think about what she has to say.

brought the author to the equally formatic "inspirational lecture tour and spiritual advice " no doubt due to income from hallmark movies let us not encourage this print pap if you must try her face book web sites receipes sites and tour dates on internet

Didn't understand all the rembling. It did hold my interest and I was sorry I bought the book. First time I didn't not like one of her books.
