Do It for a Day

release date: Nov 02, 2021
Do It for a Day
The New York Times bestselling author of Win the Day challenges you to adopt seven powerful habits for thirty days and start your journey toward reaching your God-sized dreams. Destiny is not a mystery. Destiny is daily habits. Our lives are built on our patterns of behavior: both constructive and counterproductive habits. Whether we attain the things we desire—mental and physical health, financial freedom, fulfilling relationships—is determined by the things we do and the things we don’t. The good news? You’re one habit away from a totally different life! You don’t have to tackle the next 30 years. You just have to start with right now. In Do It for a Day, you’ll begin by identifying a change that is “3M”: measurable, meaningful, and maintainable. Habit formation is both an art and a science, and it helps to close the gap between you and your goals. You can do anything for a day, and those daily habits have a domino effect over time. Mark Batterson will help you hack your habits. Leveraging habit-making and habit-breaking techniques like habit switching and habit stacking, Mark will coach you step by step for 30 days that will change your life.

Win the Day Journal
Unlock the power of twenty-four hours and tackle your God-sized goals with this step-by-step journal that guides readers through the seven life-changing habits at the core of Win the Day, from New York Times bestselling author Mark Batterson. Despite the prevalence of digital calendars, scheduling apps, and time-saving technology, a twenty-four-hour day can still often feel too short and chaotic to establish consistent daily habits or to tackle the goals that matter most. But good habits require practice, and the challenge can often be not knowing where to start. In Win the Day Journal, Batterson presents a much-needed jumpstart for going after the goals that have always felt impossible. With guided prompts and helpful exercises, he shares his seven key habits to winning each and every day. As you write and reflect your way through the pages, you will learn practical tips for reframing your past, harnessing your present, and facing your future with confidence. While "the win" may be defined differently for everyone, the secret to success rests in the answer to this simple question: Can you do it for a day?

Double Blessing

release date: Oct 15, 2019
Double Blessing
God doesn''t bless us to raise our standard of living. God blesses us to raise our standard of giving, and that''s where true joy is found. The New York Times bestselling author of Chase the Lion challenges us not to settle for half of what God offers when it comes to blessings—we are BLESSED to BLESS. His discovery started with a simple experiment. Whenever Batterson received a blessing, he would give a similar blessing away. If someone paid him a compliment or gave him a gift or went out of their way to help him, he would return the favor by doing something similar for someone else. We flip the blessing by blessing others in the way God has blessed us. That’s how the blessing becomes a double blessing. It turns giving into a game—one we can’t win because God will always outgive us! It’s an ancient truth found within the Abrahamic covenant: “I will bless you . . . and you will be a blessing.” In other words, we are blessed to bless. The first blessing is receiving, but it doesn’t end there. The second blessing is giving it away! That’s the double blessing. And that’s where double joy is found. In a day and age where the idea of blessing has been reduced to a hashtag (#blessed), Batterson challenges readers to pursue true, God-glorifying blessing and experience an exponential impact by participating in the double blessing. Don’t settle for half of what God offers. Discover how you can both get it and give it . . . in Double Blessing.

Here is a challenge to go all in and all out by fully surrendering your life to daring plan God has for you.
