Skincare Products From Greenfield Botanics (Designed By My Aunt!)
View this post on Instagram
If you’re picky (like I am) about only using the cleanest ingredients on your precious skin and outer microbiome, you'll want to make Greenfield Botanics part of your daily routine.
I've been using their products for years, and I've seen a remarkable improvement in my skin’s texture, radiance, and firmness as a result.
Two of my favorite Greenfield Botanic products are the Pure Radiance Peppermint Toner, which includes organic ingredients designed to balance the skin's Ph and minimize the appearance of pores, and the Every Day Face and Body Oil, ideal for moisturizing skin of all types with antioxidants and nourishing plant oils.
As you can see in this video, I take the Toner first and spray it all over my face (even in my mouth, too, because all-natural products should be able to be consumed, in my opinion), and then follow up with the Oil, rub it all over my face and even run it through my hair. I love to use this exact one-two combo especially right after the hot tub or a sauna session.
Anyways, if you're looking to give your skin a little more tender lovin’ care with the help of organic herbs and botanicals, I highly encourage you to try these simple products that I’ve been using for years.

My Sons Have Their Own Merch Line & (I'm Biased Perhaps)…It's Actually Really, Really Cool.
My sons—River and Terran—now have their own GoGreenfield's merchandise line.
And they just dropped some new, super-creative stuff!
Their merch line is packed with t-shirts in both men's and women's fit, kid's fit, accessories like mugs and magnets, home decor like throw pillow designs and art prints, and gift cards in case you want to pass on Go Greenfields to a friend.
Some of the latest designs feature a colorful and creatively drawn chameleon and a cozy puppy in a blanket. And it's all completely customizable – you can get their graphics on any color t-shirt you want, and you can decide if you want a short sleeve, long sleeve, hoodie, etc.
Also: they designed everything on this website all by themselves so I may be biased, but these are the coolest shirt designs I've ever seen.
Click here to get your hands on any of River and Terran's new merch while it's still in stock!
My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now
It's officially done.
That is, I just put the finishing touches on my brand new parenting book – which covers and decodes everything from education to baby nutrition to discipline to legacy to finances to college and much, much more!
It's called…drumroll please…
Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
This book isn't just written by me and my superstar wife Jessa. Rather, I put together a dream list of amazing and inspirational parents who I admire and asked them to share their best-of-the-best tools, tactics, and habits for raising incredible children in this modern world.
Part of my motivation to create this anthology of parenting wisdom was my own wish to know “all the answers” before I became a parent. I would have loved to have had the perfect parenting blueprint. Unfortunately, when Jessa and I were young parents, there was no step-by-step instruction guide that existed for how to raise impactful, happy, and fulfilled young humans – so we, along with most parents, walked into this life-altering journey without a blueprint.
But now it exists. Why try to go on this parenting journey alone and make time-wasting and life-changing mistakes when parents who have come before you can share with you all their insider secrets?
So now Boundless Parenting is here…I couldn't be more excited, and guess what? Pre-orders are LIVE right now! Head over to BoundlessParentingBook.com to learn more and sign-up for pre-order notifications.

Product Of The Week:
::: Save 15% On A Wearable That Transforms Your Sleep, Energy, & More :::
The Apollo™ wearable was developed by neuroscientists and physicians and utilizes a new touch therapy experience for better sleep, more energy, relaxation, and focus.
Through soothing, gentle, waves of vibration, the Apollo wearable helps your body relax and reduces the feelings of stress putting you into a state that allows you to have more control over how you want to feel.
Worn on the wrist, ankle, or as a clip attached to your clothing, the Apollo wearable’s scientifically validated technology actively improves your health by strengthening your nervous system, helping you go from “fight or flight” to “rest and digest”.
Along with the wearable, I use the Apollo Neuro app to effortlessly transition through my day and night with modes to help me relax, fall asleep, focus, recover, and stay calm and present. Like a workout for your nervous system, consistency is key. The more you use it, the better it works.
Rather than tracking your health, the Apollo wearable is proven to actively improve it. As it strengthens and rebalances your autonomic nervous system, your heart rate variability (HRV) improves – which means you’re building your resilience to stress. So you spend less time in fight-or-flight mode and get more time to rest and digest. Over time, your body learns to recover from stress more quickly, so you can relax, sleep better, and find deep, meaningful focus – anytime and anywhere.
New initiatives from Apollo include two new scientific research studies with groundbreaking results:
- An Apollo Sleep Study demonstrates that Apollo users can get up to 30 more minutes of sleep a night, 19% increase in deep sleep, and 14%
more REM sleep when used consistently (at least 3 hrs/day, 5 days/week).
- A peer-reviewed, published study validating the Apollo wearable as the first wearable to significantly increase heart rate variability (HRV), accelerating athletic recovery and cardiovascular fitness as proven by a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled crossover trial conducted at the University of Pittsburgh.
The science behind the technology and results are the real deal – across clinical trials and real-world studies, Apollo wearable users experienced:
○ 40% less stress and feelings of anxiety, on average.
○ 19% more time in deep sleep, on average.
○ 11% increase in HRV, on average.
○ Up to 25% more focus and concentration.
Yeah, this stuff is legit.
So click here to learn more about and order your own Apollo wearable (and save 15% with that link while you're at it).

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
This book was written and inspired by my own personal temptations, struggles, and failures, and informed by what I’ve studied and learned along the way.
It’s my deepest wish and prayer that it touches your life and gives you the tools and tactics you need to build your own spiritual stamina, strap on your sword, trust God and experience the peace, love, and joy of His creation.
If Endure does make even the smallest impact on your life, I would love it if you could help me spread the word far and wide, by:
