We must admit: at Gaiam TV, we’ve guy-crushed on TheDailyLove.com’s Mastin Kipp for quite some time. His gentle and genuine nature mixed with his wisdom beyond his years makes all of us want to kidnap him and force him to go to a coffee shop for some deep, caffeine-fueled conversation. We were elated when Mastin agreed to be featured in our Live, Love, Grow series. His new book, Daily Love: Growing into Grace, drops September 9. Here, he answers our 15 questions:
Where do you see personal transformation happening in your day-to-day life? I live my life for personal transformation. It happens slowly and then all at once. Right now I'm focused on getting in shape with the help of Adam Cobb and JJ Virgin.
What’s the most important part of your morning routine? Connecting with my girlfriend Jenna and letting her know that she is the most important person in my life. Then I can go out and serve the world.
What’s been playing on your iPod lately? I gotta admit, I love "Break free" by Ariana Grande. Also, "The Man" by Aloe Blacc, "By the Grace of God" by Katy Perry, "Ong So Hung" by GuruSingh and "Beautiful Day" by Aykanna.
