Award-winning, perennial bestselling novelist Debbie Macomber applies the best of her fiction writing skills to true stories that illustrate the profound impact focusing on a single word--such as balance, surrender, or believe--for a whole year can bring.

In One Perfect Word, Debbie encourages readers with stories of her changed life when she took the time to intentionally focus on a single word for a whole year. Debbie shows readers how choosing a word to focus--and act--on changed not only Debbie, but those around her. In the tradition of One Simple Act and God's Guest List, Debbie tells inspiring stories of how living just one word can change someone's world. In a world where too many meaningless words overwhelm us, the simplicity of one perfect word becomes profound. Words like "surrender," "believe," and "purpose" took on new meaning for Debbie when she tried to live them out.

Read how Debbie discovered that the word she chose often foreshadowed the crisis she would face in a particular year. For example, the year she chose the word "balance," her career moved to a whole new level. The pressures on Debbie to be speaking, promoting, and practically living on the road were overwhelming. It was her yearlong focus on that all-too-difficult word balance, and a plea from a lonely granddaughter, that helped her refine her schedule. Readers will be encouraged to find their word for themselves, and see how one perfect word can make all the difference.
