From #Selfie to Selfless : Living the Life You Were Created for (Paperback) (Kristen Perino)
About this item
Living in a world where "selfies" are glorified, personal opinions are amplified, and society is unashamedly selfish, where do we find our meaning and purpose?
This is not a self-help book. Kristen Perino has tried helping herself unlimited times, but it got her nowhere. So she writes From #Selfie to Selfless as a God-help book, because God rescues us in the chaos and changes selfish stories into legacies. Perino knows a bit about that, she writes, because she has "nearly perfected the art of being selfish." And she's learned a few things along the way.
So while Perino hasn't written a self-help book, she does share many ways God has helped her become less selfish in all areas of her life, from social media to work to volunteering—because yes, she confirms from experience, you can have a selfish approach even to volunteering. And as she shares her mistakes and lessons, she encourages readers to consider how they may be selfish and open themselves to God's help as well.
From #Selfie to Selfless takes an authentic, personal look at areas where we can quit the filtering frenzy and shift our gaze from inward to upward, resulting in a more fulfilled, confident, purpose-driven life.
If you have breath in your lungs, then you have the power to radically fan the flames of selflessness through everyday tasks and humble acts, until it becomes a contagious fire that refuses to be put out. These flames start with us, a personal relationship with God, a sense of humor, authenticity, and the realization that life is more beautiful without a filter. Join Perino in her journey From #Selfie to Selfless and discover the joy that comes with it. To help you on your own journey, each chapter ends with a few reflection questions and a #TruthToRemember.
