My friend Ellie had just been talking about choosing to focus on one perfect word and then this book appeared. Macomber, in short chapters, presents words that she has used over the years. This has been a lifetime practice for her. In each chapter, she shares something personal such as hard times she has experienced, and also a story of someone in the past (missionaries, religious leaders, etc.)who has overcome extreme difficulty. Some of the historical stuff does not seem as applicable to current times, but her own experiences are highly relevant.

The lighter side of this includes tips on how to focus on a single word for an entire year: journaling, scrapbooking, and other creative ways to keep the word in front of you. Macomber talks a lot about the discipline of prayer and setting/working your goals. Nicely done.
