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.)
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 15th of each month in 2022 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.
On the 22nd of each month (for 2022), 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.
New SMALL GROUPS for 2022
Here’s something we’re adding for 2022: Small groups!
Once you’re in the larger group, you have an opportunity to join our (very) small groups (4 people per group), if that would be helpful to you. [UPDATE: SIGNUP CLOSED JANUARY 7, 2022]
You and your group members can then create your own guidelines for the year or follow the suggestions I’ll send (such as, commit to communicate with the other members at least 2 times per month about your words via email or GroupMe or text, etc.).
Join Our Facebook Group and Our New Instagram Group
You’re also invited to join our private One Word 2022 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.
Another new feature this year will be a new OneWordCommunity Instagram account. Follow us on Instagram here. (Thanks to those who suggested it in our survey!)
Don’t Know Your Word Yet?
Maybe you’ve already chosen your word. (Or it’s chosen you!) Or maybe not.
Together we can help each other choose and get more out of our One Words.
We’ll begin sharing our new words here on our monthly linkup beginning Tuesday, December 21.
God used our One Word 2021 group to help us grow stronger in our relationships with God, with each other, and with ourselves throughout the year. I personally learned a lot not only from my word, but also from others’ words.
I’m excited to do it again.
Let’s see what God will do in 2022 with our new One Words!
