Local pastor, co-author set to release book 'My One Word'
 

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- The pastor of Wilmington's largest church is set to release his first book. Pastor Mike Ashcraft of Port City Community Church teamed up with UNCW instructor, Rachel Olsen, to write "My One Word."

The book is centered around a simple solution to achieving New Year's resolutions. Ashcraft and Olsen demonstrate that just one word that represents what you most hope God will do in you can be achieved through an intense focus throughout the year.

Ashcraft and Olsen stopped by Good Morning Carolina this morning to talk about what readers can look forward to when the book hits shelves tomorrow.

The Salt Shaker Bookstore is hosting a book signing for the release of "My One Word" at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

I've already finished the book and it was easy to read and clear in its directions. Although 2013 will be my 3rd word, I enjoyed Mike's thought process behind the success of focus. I've had greater results staying on one thing for the year than the 5 or 6 things I always failed at in years past.

If you have never been to church or haven't been in a long time Pastor Mike will be a breath of fresh air. He is a regular guy, living a regular life, who understands daily struggles. He doesn't preach hell, fire and brimstone. He preaches hope and works each day to bring hope to every life he touches. I cannot wait to read this book! Congrats Mike!
