The Book is Here!!

Basta Lovelife, published by Church Strengthening Ministry (CSM), is now available!

Remember, there are 12 chapters/articles that you’ll only find in the book (they are not posted here on the website). The book chapter/articles have also been edited and in some cases re-written. In other words, if you like my website articles, there’s still plenty of reasons to go out and buy the book.

The book is available at National Book Stores, Powerbooks, and Christian book stores (such as Philippine Christian Book Stores).

  1. Congratulations Kuya Kevin. May God bless you more.

  2. Congratulations Author!

    I myself would use that for our Youth Discipleship Program. 🙂

  3. yehey, meron na!!! won’t it be available at PCBS yet???

  4. Not sure what PCBS stands for. I would encourage you to contact them and ask them to order a copy for you.

  5. pcbs means philippine christian bookstores. it just takes a while to have them in the bookstores because of the process involved. but we’re glad we made it to valentine’s.

    Yesss! P190 only! Congratulations Kuya Kev! I want to have a copy of it sooner. Is it available in Back to the Bible?

  7. Not sure, but I know that CSM is one of the two major Christian publishers in the Philippines (along with OMF). Contact the store and ask them to order it.

  8. Congrats my friend! Is this going to be out in an English edition? If yes, I want a box!


  9. John,
    The book is actually written in English, although there are some Tagalog expressions in it. The statistics I use are almost all based on Filipino youth, though.

  10. i reside here in davao city, mindanao. where can we buy you books? i’d like to give it to my sister whose a very young lawyer and a leader of the young adults in our church.she’l be having her birthday this summer.
    Is it available in any bookstore?

  11. It will be available at all book stores soon. You may want to order it at a Christian bookstore to be sure to get a copy.

  12. hi, i’ve been reading your posts on your blog. very nice and inspiring. salamat sa mga idiya. anyway, can i ask you something? why are you doing this for filipino people? is there a reason?

  13. Well, I believe God called me here to do ministry. I actually explain things in more detail in the book’s introduction. Blessings!

  14. Hi Kuya Kevin.
    I’ve been regularly visiting your blog since early last year. I just don’t know if you recognize me from my comments on some of your entries.
    I’ve been waiting for your book to come out since you announced that you were making one. Unfortunately, I reside outside the Phils so I cannot buy your book right now. But hopefully I can visit the country soon or before the year ends then I can grab myself a copy. Can’t wait to read it.

  15. Hi Edz,
    I hope you will be able to get a copy soon. Much of the book is already on this blog, but there’s nothing quite like having something in print.

  16. kuya kevin, how can i have a copy of ur book? i’ve been waiting for it for so long. but unfortunately am living in italy =(

  17. Kuya kevin! congratulations!
    I’ll buy this boos ASAP!
    thanks for inspiring us

  18. I finally have this book!! From Philippines to Italy!!! Guys, if I was able to have it I believe you in the Philippines can have it more easily. Kung talgang gusto niyo siyang basahin, there’s a way!! God bless u more kuya Kevs!!!

  19. i already have the book as a birthday gift of my supervisor!

    ang saya!
    he gave it to me 2 days after ng birthday ko

    nakita nya kasi sa blog ko na gusto ko nung book ni kuya kevin
    and he asked me san yun nakakabili
    di ako alam na bibilhan pala nya ko


    i’m currently enjoying and learning in reading the book

  20. hi kuya kevs. i like your book. in fact, it’s gonna be our reference material for our singles here at my workplace, probably, i can invite you soon to be our guest speaker in one of our singles /young pro gatherings. GBU!

  21. Sure, keep in touch and maybe one of these days I can come.

  22. Nice book Kuya Kevin. Take care! 🙂

  27. “finished skimming the book.. =)
    just wondering kuya.. will there be perhaps a part TWO?

    my first impressions are..
    the book is very informative, concise, straightforward, indeed a Filipino culture on “love & relationship” in lined with the trends happening NOW in the society.

    Two Thumbs UP, Salute, and a pat on the the back, for you kuya! job well done!

    take care & Godbless u & ur family”

    Thanks so much, Jay!

    hi kuya kevin!

    i’ve read your book (actually, i had borrowed it from a friend) and it was really awesome!

    it really inspire people, especially us, teenagers. plus, it answers questions that kept on running on my mind.

    congrats for a job well done! ^^

  31. i cant wait to buy your book kuya here at calapan, oriental mindoro..wala kase ako bookstore dito na pwede bilhan..sana hindi ako maubosan ng book nyo po pag pumunta ako ng manila..God bless!

  32. There’s no book store anywhere near you? Sorry to hear about that–hope you can find it soon.

  33. hi kuya kevin!

    i’m soooo excited to read your book!

    are they available at national bookstores?

    i’m here in angeles city,pampanga..

    i hope the national bookstore outlets here have your book..

    may i know the price range?so that i could start saving money from my ‘baon’..hehe!:D

  34. The book cost 209 at National the last time I checked. It is a little less (around 190) at some Christian book stores like PCBS.

  35. hi kuya kev..
    im already reading your book..
    i’ve learned alot through it..
    may the Lord bless you more knowledge and wisdom..

  36. -hi kUyA kEvin, hOw ArE yOu?

  37. -hi kuya kevin,
    i’m already reading your book
    i’m soe xcted to read it,,,co’s i’m sure is very nice!tke care…tnx…god bless

  38. hi kuya kevin!

    right now.. i am having a hard time searching for your book here in Baguio. I’m planning to have two more copies to give to my best friend and to my teen sister. can i order it directly from you? (with autograph?… and dedication? lol) thanks!

  39. Hi Jay,
    Email me and I’ll see what I can do. I can’t promise because I’m not sure how we would handle the shipping costs, etc. Have you checked Philippine Christian Book Stores?

  40. I hope I can get a copy of your book. It was out-of-stock in one PCBS branch that I visited to buy your book. Me and my brothers had tried to go to CSM on the way to the airport but we arrived late and I was running late for my flight to Los Angeles. Sayang! Is there an online version copy that I could buy? -KF, L.A., California

  41. Right now there’s not an online version. I usually carry a few copies with me when I visit the States. Keep in touch and I can try to bring a copy–you can pay me through paypal.

  42. hi kuya kevin, galing ako sa NBS and PCBS kanina wala akong makitang copy ng book mo. wanna have copy pa naman… btw, how much it cost? thanks

  43. It cost around 200 pesos. Where are you in the Philippines? Maybe you can ask them to order a copy for you.

  44. ..hai kuya kev
    ganda b ng bks mu???
    lyk q 2loy mag pay hehe..
    gbu po…

  45. Congratulations Kuya Kev’s. I also love to have that book. I just hope its not too expensive in national bookstore so I can afford to buy it. …lol

    God bless and more power to your mission.

  46. kuya kevin…type ko ang book mo. maghahanap ako nito at bibili ako! sana ay ipagpatuloy mo ang pagsusulat ng mga makabuluhang bagay! GBU

  47. Salamat!

    Sabihin mo lang sa akin kung mahirap hanapin. Sana hindi.

  48. Hi Kuya kevs,
    Good day! I already bought the book,but I don’t know yet to apply to my life..Pls.pray for me kuya Kevs..

    Thanks and God bless

    sister in Christ,
    from Iligan City,Mindanao

  49. I look forward to your email.

  50. kuya kevin,,i have a very big problem aout my ex. ive read your book and it help me e lot in moving on from being torn apart. i have also a big problem on how to become a pure single. i think im alone now. with God. but as a human person i need somebody with physical body as i do have to talk to. i think your great about this.

  51. I’m glad the book has helped you!

  52. hi kuya kevin.
    i love your books. for now, i’m just starting reAding ‘basta lovelife’. And i;m enjoying reading it. I don’t own anyone of your books. I borrow it to my friend last week, but the book is came from me. (i bought it and give it to her as my bday gift, when she turned 18), to let her know the importance of relationship, love and GOD. your the best, and now, i decided too to buy one for me, and collect books that you’ve wrote.. god bless kuya kevin,,,,all the best.

  53. Cool, I love reading and collecting books, but I couldn’t find you in Powerbooks anymore…I have a membership card I can use 🙂

    By the way, what denomination do you belong…is this similar to Born Again Christians? Just curious.

  54. I think Powerbooks carries my book–maybe you can ask the manager to order it.

    I’m a Christian (Baptist).

  55. thanks po


  56. Kuya Kevin may girlfriend na po ba kayo? God bless!

  57. i heard u over DZAs this AM,on an interview.u said u welcome those who have story to tell about regrets in making wrong decisions in life?am i correct? i am one.would u believe im still single at age 52,never had a BF,never been kissed,and now im faced with a problem that i may no longer get married and not have offspring anymore because of the biggest mistake i committed in my life.When I was first year H>S>,i attended Chr.youth camp and met the Central Luzon Youth Pres.,Ii experienced #love at first sight#.we became friends.I said to myself,i want him to be my lifetime partner.So i turned down all suitors in the hope that he will court me.He visited me in dorm during my collegedays.Unfortunately, he never formally courted me.I avoided him for many years toforget him but i was not successful. I prayed to God if he is for me that we should meet in a church workers their province.then i should see him there.Indeed, he appeared.He was introdused as uest.I bent low where i was seated so he wont see me bec.he was already a physician.Ithought i was #alanganin na para sa kanya.After a while,he was beside me and asked when i will invite him to my house.I was speechless.I didnt know what to say bec.i never expected he will search for me.The Bishop was giving his msg. and i told him to listen to him.After a while hes gone.I couldnt find him. I telegrammed him that i may come to our house.Unfortunately he never came.Years passed,I was told he was in USA and already married.Now, its late for me to have a rel./I lost him. Now i have nobody.Many chatmates want me bec.i still look 21-36 to them.They say,im amazing,gorgeous,nice,sexy,pretty, Miss World, vvvbeautiful,etc., no one will believe i am52. but not one is a im afraid theres no one for me now.Thats my sad love story bec.of wrong decisions in like…that i did not answer him right away that i want him to visit me in my house.province.

  58. Nieva,
    That’s an interesting story. Maybe you can email me and we’ll talk about it.

  59. kuya ex bf lend me a copy of your book.. he told me that it will really help us grow, mature and handle our relationship..i learned a lot of things from made me realized that he’s not the right guy for me.. i used to have the romantic martyr syndrome.. at the same time, i was a believer of the three stupid words that a woman soon as i finished reading your book, we broke up.. we both decided not to continue our relationship..thankyou kuya kevin..i believe you gave me the courage and strength to let him go and move on.. again, thank you..more power..Congratulations and God bless.!

  60. Kuya, magkano po kaya ‘tong book na ‘to? I want one! ^__^

  61. It costs around 200 in most book stores. If you’d like to come buy one from me directly there’s a discount but you’d have to be willing to travel to the SM City Manila area.

  62. hi…is that available in any christian bookstore at mandaluyong??? kier of mandaluyong

  63. You should be able to find it at Christian book stores and places like National.

  64. kuya kevin.. i find christian love stories soo boring:D hehe
