Publisher's Summary

What keeps you from loving someone God loves so much? How might your life change if you really believed God loves you - not just in your head but down where it counts, in your heart? Imagine how different things could be: The lies you've believed about yourself all these years dispelled. The wounds of abuse healed. Your future lit with hope, peace, and purpose. Your closeness with God and others deepened immeasurably. The true, heaven-born you free at last to live a life unclouded by shame, guilt, and fear and empowered to love others fully. That can be you. The truth is far, far better than you've known. Drawing on their many years of biblical counseling practice, Jerry and Denise Basel invite you on a journey of God-discovery, self-discovery, and truth-discovery. The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself will help you experience God's love as the daily, motivating force in your life. And it will show you how to stop punishing and start loving someone whom your heavenly father loves very much - you. You see, the missing commandment has never been missing from the Bible, only from your life. But that can change, starting now.

So Grateful I Found This Book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If "life-changing" wasn't so over-used, that is how I would describe this book, because it is powerful enough to change lives. The Basels use plenty of biblical references (in the correct context imo) to defeat the unfortunate attitude in some of Christian culture that loving ourselves is selfish and sinful. I am so grateful for the clarity The Missing Commandment offers- to agree with God, to "love what (who) He loves (you)."

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No

Life changing, highly recommended!

I listened to each chapter two to three times because I didn’t want to miss any important points. Through this book God took me back to my childhood and earlier areas of my adulthood to reveal all the areas of hurt and I was able to forgive others and myself and also to learn to see and love me the way God loves me. Highly recommended!

The Missing Commandment

Dear Denise and Jerry,
What a wonderful, enlightening, beautiful book of knowledge and wisdom you have created. Your book brought light back into my soul. The child I lost at 4 yrs old, is being released, that 50 years ago and she is beautiful, timid but finding herself and happiness again. This was the book I needed. This was the book that let me understand myself and gods love for me.
Thank you for putting love back into my life!
Eternal love and blessings to you both.
