This book is absolutely phenomenal! Jerry and Denise do a wonderful job of explaining why loving ourselves the way God loves us is biblical and desired by God. They also do a great job of walking readers through the areas in our lives and past that may be hindering us from loving ourselves the way God desires for us to. The book is filled with powerful personal testimonies, practical and impactful exercises and Spirit led prayers within every chapter! This book is simply a MUST READ that will bless anyone who decides to read it.






A must read for everyone!! My husband went to counseling with Jerry and Denise about 17 years ago. Since he was well acquainted with the authors we decided to order their book and read it together. It is by far the best book we've ever read. For the first time in our lives we are just beginning to understand God's immense love for us and the wonderful gift of His grace. We are not under the law and God is for us and delights in us! Don't hesitate to purchase this book. It is a must read for everyone!!

This book by Jerry and Denise should be required reading for every Christian. If it is read and applied, it will change your life. Awesome book by awesome people. I am so excited about this book that words fail me. I don’t think I have read anything like it: personal and didactic at the same time with a very easy flow. I felt like I was sitting in the counseling room across from Jerry and Denise. I thought of my clients in the addiction center and I can see it transforming lives. I will buy this in bulk.

This book is written for both men and women. After I read the first chapter I reached out to the authors personally because they had hit the spot that people need most—to love themselves. I ordered a case and put it in the hands of my family and friends. Reading the truth in this book both personally helped me but also many others in my business, ministry and members of my foundation.

This is going to be a prerequisite class before taking any of my other bible studies. I have been leading several women's groups on The Missing Commandent: Love Yourself, and I can't tell you what life transforming changes I have witnessed each and every week. The truths being spoken that flow from the pages are wonderful. The book goes very deep into YOU as a beloved child of God who longs for your inner healing. Expect tears . . . lots of tears, but healing tears! You have to go through the pain to get to the other side which is freedom from past wounds. Loving yourself the way God loves you is an amazing “cloud-walk”on earth!

I love the prayers. I'm only half way through this book and absolutely recommend it to everyone! I want to buy

it as gifts and give them to family and friends. There's so many spot on points

in here and I can pretty much relate to everything it talks about. Very well written and easy to go along. I also love the prayers at the end of each chapter. Highly recommend for people like me who need to be reminded every day that you are loved no matter what. And in order to fully love others in a healthy way, that you must love yourself first.

Highly recommend this book!

I'm very glad I decided to get this book. I wasn't sure how much more there could be after reading their phenomenal first book (The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself), but Wow! Love the format of the shorter daily-style readings. So many of the readings were just what I needed to hear on that particular day/time. It's almost like having a personal cheerleader to keep me moving toward a deeper relationship with God. A well-written book that keeps hope alive despite the tough times in our journey. Thanks, Jerry & Denise for sharing God's love through this work.



Life Changing MUST READ!!!

This is an absolutely phenomenal book!
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Jerry and Denise's other book, The Missing Commandment, I found this as a perfect complement to it. It takes the same valuable concepts, revolving around the importance of us loving ourselves, and shares them in daily increments. This book can be considered a devotional, but it is so much more! The Basel's walk us through the process of truly loving ourselves one step at a time and even if you haven't read The Missing Commandment, you can honestly start with this book and gain so much from it. It will take readers on a transforming 11-week journey that can change their lives for the better!

You will find the Heart of the Father through these pages.

I discovered Jerry and Denise's book, The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself, when I was beginning to realize that I didn't really love myself well. I literally did a web search of books on how to love myself, within the area of Christian books and authors. The Missing Commandment was one of the first that I came across and it seemed intriguing. And it was hot off the press! I found a gem of a book and one that led me to great healing and realization of wounds that Father God wanted to heal in me. The pages of my copy are dog eared and marked up. I have come to a new place in life where I am experiencing great healing and freedom. All because I wanted to learn how to love myself.

Another Gem! When Jerry and Denise published this new book, Loving God, Loving Myself, I knew it was going to be another gem. That it is! It consists of daily reminders of the healing journey that Father God wants to continue in me. For anyone seeking healing of soul wounds and wanting to experience freedom through knowing the Father's heart and love for you, this is an excellent book to read. Jerry and Denise are personal, honest and represent the Father and Mother heart of God. I recommend both of these books for anyone seeking healing and the Father's Love.

The prayers and suggestions helped me move forward.

Sometimes it is difficult to know where to begin or restart the process of healing and growth. This book helps me identify thoughts or behaviors that are still lingering even though I thought I had completed the healing process. It also helps identify areas I did not realize I was stuck or holding false beliefs. I find it encouraging to read about others who have similar thoughts and feelings, it reminds me that I am not alone. I like the prayers and suggestions so that I know what to do with the thoughts, feelings, behaviors and can move forward rather than just open the wound and stay stuck. I am working thru this individually but could see it as a very helpful book to read and discuss with someone else or in a group setting. Excellent book!

This book is a gem.

I received counseling from Jerry and Denise in their wonderful retreat setting in the mountains of North Georgia. It was a very precious time of healing, wholeness and freedom for me. Now about 5 years later, this book has taken me back to that time. Reading this book one chapter at a time is like sitting in a session with them. Each chapter is very specifically geared to a healing insight that was lovingly imparted to me. Old patterns are easier to stay out of with this source of review at my fingertips. Jerry and Denise's love for people and passion for their wholeness seeps through and oozes out of what they have written. They are real people and this book is a gem.
