New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
My Latest Music Project: “Canvas Cries”
It’s no secret that music is, and always has been, a huge passion of mine. I use music for relaxation, for sound medicine and healing, for connecting with God and with my family, and also as a creative outlet for the words and tunes that seem to swirl around my mind at least once a week.
One of my “side projects” of late has been creating my own music via original singing-songwriting and also spinning up unique covers of my favorite songs. You can find my entire song library, which includes songs I’ve recorded with my wife and sons, at this free Soundcloud link.
My latest original track was inspired by a morning prayer walk in which I was struck by how much God was revealing His power and beauty to me in nature. I began to speak to God and to wax poetic during my walk, then I took my phone out of my pocket on the walk and recorded my prayers and words.
When I got home, I sat down and worked up this song over the next few hours, then recorded it for you, with the production help of the brilliant Micah Arriss (@arissstudiosllc).
The song is called “Canvas Cries.” I would love for you to take a listen and let me know what you think (and I recommend a good set of headphones and a view of nature as you listen!).
One of my dreams is to have some of my original praise and worship music sung as anthem themes in worship services and churches around the world, so if you listen and are inspired to connect me with your worship leader or to send the song to them to include in worship, it would be an absolute dream-come-true for me. I give my full permission for any church to use this song in their worship services.
Enjoy, and let me know your thoughts and feedback!
My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I recently turned 40, and as a birthday gift from myself to you (because there's no better gift than the gift of giving), I've let you in on my newest book that's coming out in April this year. It's called Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina.
This book is for you if you struggle with temptation and often find yourself succumbing to it; if you get overwhelmed by all the ways you can pray and meditate; if you lay awake at night with your mind racing thinking about the general anxieties of the week; if you want to live an impactful life that inspires others to greatness; and more.
By the conclusion of Endure, you will have discovered and learned how to implement tools, tactics, and habits for spiritual stamina that were inspired by great philosophers, thinkers, and theologians of ancient and modern ages, including Augustine, Plato, the Apostles Paul, Peter and John, the kings David and Solomon, C.S. Lewis, Naval Ravikant, Anthony de Mello, Derek Sivers, Doug Wilson, Randy Alcorn, John Piper, many, many others, and of course, Jesus Christ himself.
Just click here to be the first in line to be notified as soon as Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina is ready for release, which is officially happening in April 2022. Thanks for reading, and for putting up with this old 40-year-old curmudgeon's ramblings. :)

::: Save 10% On This Metabolism And Energy Super-Boost :::
Summer is less than four months away, which means it’s a great time to get your metabolism in check so you can look and feel your best. Active H2 + Chromax can make getting your body in tip-top shape that much easier.
This super-boost concoction by Water and Wellness is a blend of their best-selling hydrogen water, plus added chromium for improved metabolic health. I've used their original hydrogen tablets for a while now, but these are seriously next level (you can check out how I use them in this video here).
The hydrogen in Active H2 + Chromax helps enhance athletic performance, improve power and reduce fatigue, and has been shown to improve 18 of the 20 markers of metabolic syndrome. Chromax®, a highly bioavailable patented-protected form of chromium picolinate, can help you drop the winter fat, increase muscle, and control your appetite.
So, if you're looking to:
- Lose fat, not muscle…
- Improve glucose metabolism…
- Maintain healthy blood sugar levels…
- And improve carbohydrate metabolism…
Active H2 + Chromax is a must-have for feeling good and looking better this spring and summer.

I Want To Know What You've Got Cooking
I'm so stoked about the positive feedback I've been getting about my new Boundless Cookbook. The cookbook was a labor of love, but I'm really proud of the end result (especially considering I'm definitely not a trained chef).
Now that the Boundless Cookbook is available on Amazon, I have a favor to ask…
If you have the cookbook and you love it, can you hop on over to Amazon and leave a review? Amazon reviews—as I bet you know—are super important. I want your honest feedback and I'll be reading them to hear what you think.
You can leave your review on Amazon right here (and if you don't have a cookbook yet, and you're an Amazon Prime member, you could have your copy at your doorstep as early as tomorrow).
Kion Product Of The Week: Get The High-Quality Sleep You Need With The Brand New Kion Sleep
Approximately 70% of US adults experience at least one bad night of sleep every month, and one-third report getting less than seven hours of sleep each night…not good.
Energy for life, every day, begins with your sleep. Ki is the vital energy inside each and every one of us that enables us to fully experience long, active, and joyful lives. And getting deep, restful sleep each night is vital to Ki. Yet, it is often an afterthought for most as we pursue foods, drinks, and supplements to create this energy for us.
That's where the newest Kion Sleep comes in to save the day (or, in this case, the night).
Kion Sleep uniquely harnesses the power of three proven amino acids to naturally work with your brain’s neurotransmitters—bringing you effective and natural sleep support. A unique blend of L-tryptophan, L-theanine, and PharmaGABA® help you:
- Fall asleep fast
- Stay asleep
- Improve sleep quality
All the ingredients for a good night’s sleep!
Sleep is as essential for human energy and movement as food and water, and without it, our health and wellbeing can suffer dramatically.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. Kion products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
