I love it when I get to read books that will change how I live. My One Word is one that will live with me for a looooooooooooooooooong time. I want copies to give my children, friends, and other unsuspecting people. I want my small group from church to study it.

I have chosen for my word for this year: Legacy--I want my life to be a legacy that I hand down to younger generations. My mother left me her legacy of prayer and I learned that legacies are not the same as inheritances. They are not to be spent, but to be handed down and then picked up by future generations and carried on. This is the lesson I have learned and will keep learning through the year. I want to live my life so that it is an enticing legacy for others to pick up and carry on.

My One Word will change how you make "New Year's Resolutions" because My One Word teaches you how to concentrate on on word that the Lord lays on your heart, to learn from that word, and then to make it such a part of your life that you will only build on your words from year to year. It's an exciting way to allow God to work in your life and change you one step at a time, one word at a time. This book takes you through the steps of choosing your word, making it part of your life, and learning what God wants to teach you about your word. I took my time reading this book because I wanted to soak in every single word and then make the choice for my word this year.

Thank you Mike Ashcraft and Rachel Olsen for allowing me to review your book.

Five Stars, Two Thumbs Up, and a Legacy to carry on.
