Book Title Reveal and the Bible Reading Challenge Check-In


bible sample wide

Monday is here and you know what that means! It’s time for the Bible Reading Challenge check-in. I’m a little behind on the reading schedule, but the quality of reading has been wonderful this week. How are you doing?

The book I’m writing on perseverance is coming together and I’m down to the wire the next two weeks. I would love it if you could continue to pray that God supplies the words he wants folks to read in this book.  Currently I have 10,000 more words to write and self-editing to finish before I submit my final manuscript to the editor. The working title I’ve been using for this project is “When You Feel Like Giving Up.” I have been feeling that this should actually be the subtitle of the book and have been working towards a concise title. So while this blog post is titled “book title reveal,” it’s actually a request that you comment your ideas for titles. We haven’t solidified a true title just yet. Here are a few I’ve kicked around:

Perseverance: When You Feel Like Giving Up

The Grit Factor: When You Feel Like Giving Up

One More Step: When You Feel Like Giving Up

Everyday Champion: When You Feel Like Giving Up

Hope Quest: When You Feel Like Giving Up

So, whatcha think? I know “whatcha” is not a word. But it’s my Appalachian accent shining.

I’d love to hear how your Bible reading is coming along; so let us know in the comments. If you don’t mind giving your opinion on the book title, I’d sure appreciate your thoughts. You guys always have great ones.

Happy Monday!

    This title came to me this morning while in the shower…

    “Remember, this is only temporary: When you feel like giving up.”

    So many times in my life when I’m ready to throw in the towel…God reminds me that it’s only temporary. As I get older and wiser I have proven this to be true. In the grand scheme of things….it’s only temporary!

    Love your website Rachael…God bless you!

    1. thanks Pam. That is one of the elements in the book content. 🙂 Blessings to you!!

  2. I like both “One more step” and “Perseverance” but if your mom would say one more step, you’ve got to go with that.

    “One More Step”

  4. I Love the One More Step. You can do it One More Step. Press on One More Step. I Love this Title..
    Congratulations on your new book…

  5. I like One More Step because there have been many days where I have had to tell myself to “take one more step, don’t give up I can do this”. I can’t wait to read it!!

    How about…

    Breathe: When You…

    Surrender: …

    Close Your Eyes: …

    A Still Small Hope: …

    It’s Not Over: …

    Now God Can Move: …

    The Time is Now: …

    For Such a Time As This: …

    Just brainstorming!
    Be blessed!

  7. How to Persevere When You Feel Like Giving Up

  8. “Pressing in” or “Pushing through” Maybe even “Holding Fast”… I know these weren’t in the original options but I was feeling for the opposite emotion that you initially feel when you nip the edges of wanting to give up and then that singular wave that causes you to change your focus. Bless you!

  9. Perseverance as it reminds me not to give up to keep going. Can’t wait to read it!

  10. I really prefer Perseverance!

  11. I really like one more step…afterall isn’t that what perserverence is?

  12. One more step!
    Can’t wait to read this book.

  13. Hello,

    This is I think the perfect title….
    Hope Quest:When you feel like giving up!
    Congrats on your book, looking forward to reading it!

    I love “The Grit Factor” or “One More Step.” I don’t like Perseverance – It feels to lecture-y (while we are making up words.) One More Step is like an invitation to keep going. I can almost see you walking forward but looking back with extended hand to help us keep going or take that One More Step. The Grit Factor just sounds cool.

    I do not like Hope Quest at all or the Champion one, they seem to be kind of trying to hard. I have read a lot about being a “spiritual champion” and while I like the concept, it has been done and done.

  15. I’d stay away from “perseverance” – sounds church-y and boring. I like One More Step. Sometimes we forget that when whatever we are going through is a long haul, all we have to do right now is take one more step. We don’t have to look years down the road. We just have to do the step that’s in front of us right now. Good luck, Rachel!
