Kristen Perino is a Hawaii-born, California-raised youngest of three, and very proud Auntie. Working in the Fashion Industry for over a decade, God instilled a passion and mission field in her  own backyard of Los Angeles, CA. With a heart for leading young women to be all that they were created to be, a longing to spread genuine authenticity in the Christian community, a drive to inject the world with some good-ol’-fashioned LOVE,  and fierceness stemming from her Italian background, Kristen penned the book ‘From #Selfie to Selfless: Live the Life that You were Created For’.  

Note from Kristen: 

WELCOME! My motto for 2018 is: “YOU ARE NOT ALONE.” You are not alone in your sadness, hurt, joy, excitement, hopefulness, defeat, addiction, pain, sleepless nights, confusion, doubt, or happiness. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Let’s get REAL. Let’s laugh and cry together, because THIS. IS. LIFE. AND YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

I am so happy to have you following along with From #Selfie to Selfless. I have discovered that when we are lost in selflessness, we suddenly find  ourselves. YOU HAVE A PURPOSE. It’s time you rose to the exciting destiny waiting before you….

Please gently keep in mind that:

  1. I am simply an ordinary girl, who happens to be given an extraordinary passion to leave this world a little more loved and selfless than how I found it.
  2. You can count on me making mistakes, being misunderstood, or shaking things up  (because I am still 1,000% human, AND Italian…a lethal combination).
  3. You have MY WORD that I will do all that I can to bring nothing but love, authenticity, and encouragement to anything that has my name attached to it.

I believe that:

  1. Laughter is the best medicine
  2. We are stronger together
  3. The Lord is the single most important relationship you could ever invest in
  4. YOU were created for a significant purpose
  5. Simple acts of kindness are highly underestimated
  6. We can and WILL change the world with selflessness
  7.  FRIENDS television show is God’s gift to the world to keep us laughing forever

I plan on weaving those core beliefs through this blog (except number 7). This is not about religion, but it’s about a RELATIONSHIP with a very real, loving God. Let’s shed some selfishness in everyday ways, so we can spread some quality love to a world that needs it so much.

And if you get nothing else from any of this, please just know that you are L*O*V*E*D, smiling looks GREAT on you, and you are not alone (but you may have just been found)!!! XO- KP
