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.
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 volunteeringbecause 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.
To help readers on their own journeys, each chapter ends with reflection questions and a #TruthToRemember.
