When Mastin Kipp found himself at rock bottom—addicted to drugs and parties, living in his ex-girlfriend's parents' tiny pool house, jobless, and with nowhere to go—he looked to the divine for help. What he found took him in an entirely new direction. He moved from a life filled with the excesses of Hollywood as a manager in the music industry, to one teaching about the power of self-acceptance and service. To spread the love beyond his personal circle, Mastin started his Twitter account, @TheDailyLove, which now has more than half a million followers, and his popular website, TheDailyLove.com, which features contributors from many walks of life—from Russell Simmons to Wayne Dyer.
Now, Mastin has written a book based on his spiritual experiences to encourage other young seekers to discover their own paths. In Daily Love, Mastin shares some of his personal stories of darkness and light, embracing them all as part of his journey to becoming who he really is. He also speaks of various spiritual leaders who have influenced his life, such as Joseph Campbell, Caroline Myss, Tony Robbins, George Lucas, Oprah, his parents and Jenna (his girlfriend). Through detailed accounts of various spiritual principles introduced by these teachers, Mastin shares how his inspirations and mentors have helped to guide him to success and self-discovery. With the signature voice of TheDailyLove.com and Mastin’s youthful and engaging spirit, readers gain a new perspective on what it means to be spiritual for the next generation.

I was once part of a failed bachelorette party to Las Vegas when I (the maid of honor) had a brutal falling out with the bride where a power outage left us trapped on the 52nd floor of our hotel in the middle of the night, and the bride’s ungrateful behavior led me to kick her out of the room I paid for and forced her to go sleep on the floor of her friends’ room. It was a pretty low moment. It was after that ill-fated trip that I found Mastin and @TheDailyLove. For days after that trip I was scrolling through my twitter feed feeling pretty low when I read something uplifting that a friend had Re-Tweeted from @TheDailyLove. I don’t remember the exact words of the tweet, but I remember how they felt. They were a visual warm hug reminding my that self love, and doing what’s best for me is of the utmost importance in life. Mastin’s tweets were integral in me moving on from that situation, and have held a soft spot in my heart since then. When I heard I he was writing a book, @TheDailyLove – Growing Into Grace, I was beyond excited. When I was given a chance to read it for free in exchange for a review, I knew it was destiny. I dove into the book, ready to hear about this beacon of light and how he came to greatness, only to learn he has had struggles, he’s had an ego, he’s had problems, and he’s suffered from addictions. Mastin Kipp is human. His humanity is perhaps the most inspiring part of this book. It serves as a reminder that we are never as stuck as we think we are and that rock bottom is merely a starting point for our greatness. It was a reminder that all of our trials are experiences we can grow from, and helps us rise into our greatness.
