Cafe Lily's Review:

Joyce Meyer’s newest devotional focuses on loving God, loving yourself and loving others.  Love Out Loud is a collection of 365 devotions that touches on everything from being merciful and not holding grudges, to taking time out to do something special for yourself.  Each devotion starts with a main scripture and ends with a love “key” that will help the reader apply the main point of the devotional.  Summing up a Christian’s life in one bible verse to live by, Meyer has chosen Luke 10:27, “You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”

The size of this book is perfect for keeping in your tote, book bag or briefcase and the sturdy hardcover makes it durable.  For anyone looking for an easy to read devotional with a variety of topics, this would be a great choice.

SHORT BOOK DESCRIPTION:

Jesus said, "You must love the Lord your God with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself." - Luke10:27



If one had to choose a single verse in the Bible that is a formula for successful living, this would be the one to live by, says Joyce Meyer: love God, yourself and others - in that order.


Many Christians get mixed up about love. They know they should love God and others, but many do not understand that loving oneself is one-third of God's equation. They mistakenly think of it as selfishness or self-aggrandizement.

Joyce Meyer believes that this misconception is one of the greatest pitfalls in the Christian journey. Loving oneself in a balanced, healthy manner is essential in order to have healthy relationships with God, ourselves and others.

Drawing upon her previous work and teaching series as well as original devotions, the author of Power Thoughts examines the three loves that we've been commanded to exhibit.
