If you choose One Word for the year, but then forget about it after a few months, we have a solution for you.

If you need help choosing your word, read this: 3 Steps to Finding the Right Word.

And this: 7 Tips for Choosing Your One Word of the Year.

Join our monthly group anytime during the year.


What You’ll Get

This is what we’ll provide you year-round when you join our One Word group.


This is the most essential ingredient. Belonging to a community helps us stay accountable with each other with our words. And as a bonus: we also grow from each others’ words. 


On the 17th of each month in 2024 you’ll receive an email to remind you of your word, along with a few suggestions, questions, or activities to engage with your word.


If you blog or are on social media, we’ll encourage you to write a blog post or make a social media status answering the questions or otherwise updating us about how it’s going with your word. But everything is optional, of course.


On the 24th of each month (for 2024), I’ll share a linkup post here at the blog. You can add all your own links from your blog or social media, and read others’ posts.


Occasionally we have giveaways for books or special gifts. We’ll keep you posted on when and how to enter.


We share our favorite resources with each other. See the growing list here

Join Our Facebook Group and Our New Instagram Group

You’re also invited to join our private One Word Facebook group. It’s optional, but encouraged if you’re on Facebook (even if you don’t use Facebook for anything else).

You’ll find extra encouragement and camaraderie in the interactions among our Facebook participants.

You can also follow our OneWordCommunity Instagram account.

Don’t Know Your Word Yet?

Maybe you’ve already chosen your word. (Or it’s chosen you!) Or maybe not.

Either way, sign up now to get started on your journey.

Together we can help each other choose and get more out of our One Words.

Our One Word community helps us grow more insightful with our words, with each other, and with ourselves throughout the year. I personally learn not only from my word, but also from others’ words.

I’m excited to do it again.


Watch for amazing things in 2024 with your new One Word!

    I’m enjoying the last couple of weeks with 2021’s One Word and looking forward to 2022’s One Word. I just received my word and I’m excited for the upcoming journey. Thank you for hosting this group, Lisa!

    I think it’s fun that we will post on the 22nd in 2022. I didn’t realize the reason for posting on the 21st in 2021.

      Oh yay that you have your word now! Last year at this time I was going back and forth between several words, but this year God gave me my 2022 without a fight from me. 🙂

  2. Charlotte Flowers

    I love the idea of being in community to stay focused on our one word. My word for 2021 was transformation, but I don’t yet have my word for 2022, I have “accountability” on the short list so the idea of small groups excites me.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Glad to hear it, Charlotte. Transformation must have been a powerful word for this past year. And Accountability sounds like a great word especially in light of our small groups!

  3. Aritha

    No word yet. I am looking for a word around the theme: being enough in Christ, or loved by Him. As the antithesis of slavish fear. It has to do with freedom. And love. I don’t know a good word it. In the word freedom I don’t feel the aspect of love or being loved. So … no word yet.

    I will join the group again 😉

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Hmm…I can’t think of one word either that encapsulates both those themes, but I love the concept you’re aiming for, Aritha. Hope you’ll find just the right word soon. And so glad you’re going to stay with the group again!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Both! We’ll still have the large group for everyone, and the smaller groups for those who want more accountability and companionship along the way. I want to be in one myself.

    Have just focused on the 2022 One Word: diligence. I have much to learn through it, I am quite sure.
    My 2021 word of ‘decrease’ has really given me much inward change, to say the least. I have been pondering it these past few weeks to write the December and maybe final post. I say “final” but God is not done with me on this powerful and humbling word. I have truly loved this 2021 journey.
    Thank you, Lisa, for all you do to roll the ball for these annual journeys. I just read about the 4-people groups and think that is a fine way for us to journey in closer proximity to one another adding accountability. I so appreciate you, sweet friend. And I love you, my sister.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Your word ‘decrease’ kept popping up with me, too, Linda! And every time I’d think of you. I’ve loved that added bonus of better remembering other people’s words as well as my own this year. I’m SO thankful you’ve been a part of this journey. It’s such a blessing to hear your sweet, gentle voice echoing the Lord’s voice throughout the year.

      I love your new word! Diligence will be a wonderfully active word to use throughout the year. Love you much!

  5. April Harris

    My word for 2022 is ‘fun’ and my theme is ‘playful’! I want to allow myself more time to do the things I enjoy and not feel that whenever I am at home I need to be working. I really love the idea of your group, Lisa, and I appreciate you sharing it with the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Sharing in the Hearth and Soul Facebook Group and I’m featuring this post at the party which goes live on Sunday (9th January) this week. Hope to ‘see’ you there! Take care and I hope you have a lovely weekend.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      What a great word and theme, April! (Hmmm…these would make great backup words for me!) Thanks for featuring my post this weekend. I’ll be there. I appreciate your link party and the links you share. It is indeed a fun place!

  6. Tammy Kennington

    Hi Lisa,
    I love that you’ve created a group and recommended it to a friend. What a blessing!

    My word for the year is “glory” and the verse is Romans 4:20, “He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God…”

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      “Glory” is a great choice for your One Word, Tammy. I remember years ago I heard a sermon series on the radio on giving glory to God, and it totally revolutionized how I thought about it (granted, I hadn’t really thought much about it prior to that!). It was back in the days before podcasts and online stuff, so I recorded it off the radio onto a cassette tape. lol. But it was worth it.

      Thanks for sharing about our One Word group to your friend!

    My word for 2022 was purpose. Being housebound with COVID (20200, a major surgery (2020), and a lumpectomy (2021) I began to doubt if I was realizing my purpose for the LORD.

    My word for 2023 is forgiven. I was drawn to the passage where Paul tells us to forgive others as we have been forgiven.
