Monthly One Word Linkup Party! {january}


One word.

Who thought just one little world could have such an impact on our perspective for the new year? I have a little secret to share with you… What it I told you that TWO little words could have an even larger impact?

It’s true!

“Keep going”.

“You can”

“Press on”

“Don’t stop”

At the beginning of a new year, we each have the momentum and motivation to give this one little word our best. However, as the year goes on, many of us will start to feel discouraged and even question if we have what it takes to keep going with our one word.

That, sweet friends, is exactly why we are linking up here each month.

Let us know how it’s going by writing a post about what has happened so far this month or what you have planned for the rest of the month. Feel free to link up any one word post from this month. To link up, copy the URL to your blog post and then click the link below that says “Click Here to Enter”

But even more importantly, please take time to visit the two people before you (and more if you have time!) and just leave two little words (again, more if you have time!) :) Tell these sweet bloggers that they can do it, to press on, keep going.

… because we all need an “atta girl” sometimes… yes?

MonthlyOneWord150If you would also grab the button to the left, save it off to your computer, and use it in the post you are linking up, I would be most grateful.

Please be sure to link back to this post so that other friends who may feel all alone with their “one little word” might see the button and decide to hop over here and link up.

… and that’s when we will be ready with our *two* little words.

“Keep going”.

“You can”

“Press on”

“Don’t stop”

Who’s with me? Let’s link up, sweet friends! Please “Share” this post too so more people can join us! I can’t wait to read all about what is going on with your “one word” choices!

    Hi Melanie!
    I am so glad you will be doing this monthly link up! I will be sure and post back here (hopefully Thursday), with some reflections on my One Word: Release! God is wasting no time in working this word in to my new year…the trouble is I’m slow to get it. I’m learning that letting go is something that he is really impressing upon me. Well, I will save it for the post. Thanks for being you! In His Grace, Dawn

    Hey Melanie!

    You are so “right on” about needing those two little words. They are so important. I find I need them more often than I wish to admit. Thanks for the link up opportunity today.

    I love your new button we can save and use as we link up each month.

  • Janis Cox

    Great idea. I have done my word for the year and then decided I would do one word a week from God’s Word.

  • Renee @ Great Peace

    Thanks Melanie, What a super great idea! Loving the beautiful word that you created as well. :)

    I completely missed the bus on this one. But I am posting my monthly post for this month, its a little late. But better late than never. This will be so encouraging and a great way to stay accountable on keeping to my one word for the year. I can’t wait to see the progress at the end of the year.
