New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina was written and inspired by my own personal temptations, struggles, and failures, and informed by everything I've learned and studied along my path to improved spiritual fitness.
Within the pages of Endure, you'll discover:
How to deal with common temptations, obstacles, pitfalls, and struggles…
Tips to master your passions and desires, and strike a balance between savoring God's creation and self-discipline…
Ways to balance purpose and productivity by working deeply, creating beauty, and simultaneously experiencing rest and nourishment…
How to love others and God more fully, while creatively weaving the Golden Rule into your life…
What happens at the end of your life, and how to find meaning in both life and death…
And much, much more…
So if you're ready to take your spiritual endurance to the next level, and connect with God more deeply than ever before, you can officially get your hands on your very own copy of Endure today.
(And, because I want everyone to have access to this information, I will also be releasing one chapter of the audiobook each week for free on my podcast, which you can subscribe to on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever podcasts are found.)
My Go-To Skincare Products From Greenfield Botanics (Designed By My Aunt!)
View this post on Instagram
If you’re fanatical about only using the cleanest ingredients on your precious skin microbiome, you'll want to make Greenfield Botanics part of your daily routine. I've been using their products for years, and have seen a remarkable improvement in my skin’s texture, radiance, and firmness as a result.
Two of my favorites happen to be the Pure Radiance Peppermint Toner, which includes organic ingredients designed to balance the skin's PH and minimize the appearance of pores, as well as 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.
Everything You've Ever Wanted to Know About Peptides
I consider my friends Jay Campbell and Nick Andrews to be some of the go-to experts on using peptides.
They're also the co-founders of Aseir Custom (listen to my podcast with them here) which creates peptide-enhanced products like hair growth formulas and skincare. Jessa and I use all of the products in the skincare line, but my favorite is the GHK-Cu Royal Blue Serum, which I've noticed has dramatically tightened and improved my skin elasticity while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Chances are, you’ve already heard a ton of buzz about peptides on podcasts, the gym, Reddit forums, and more — including how they may be the keys to anti-aging, muscle gain, fat loss, hair regrowth, and even healing joint and tissue injuries.
You’ve gone down the proverbial Google rabbit hole, but when it comes to actually using peptides, you have zero idea where to even start.
Now, you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about peptides directly from Jay and Nick in The Peptides Optimization Course: the only program of its kind that teaches you how to properly use therapeutic peptides to harness the power of regenerative healing.
The course is a 6-week online program that will teach you exactly how to use peptides safely for lifelong health and wellness, including:
- How peptides really work in your body
- How to use them properly
- How to get your hands on the best peptides
- How to measure and optimize
- And much more!

Product Of The Week:
::: Special Offer: Try a $39 Bottle of Artisanal Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil For Just $1 :::
Extra virgin olive oil is a staple in my diet. Research shows that its heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and antioxidants can help to lower bad cholesterol, reduce risk factors for heart disease and stroke, and help protect your brain against cognitive decline.
But not all olive oils are created equal… many on supermarket shelves are cut with other unhealthy oils, most notably canola. Yikes.
That's why my go-to favorite source is T. J. Robinson’s Fresh-Pressed Olive Oil Club. Robinson searches the world for the best small-farm extra virgin olive oils, and then he flies them straight from the new harvest at their peak of flavor and nutritional potency.
Once you try his olive oils, bursting with harvest-fresh flavor, you’ll never go back to store-bought oils. His oils are pricey, but the super-fresh flavor will blow you away, and it's worth it knowing you're getting true olive oil.
Right now, T. J. is offering BG readers a sweet deal: he'll send you a $39 bottle FREE if you’ll pay just $1 to help cover shipping.
Try a free bottle and discover how top-of-the-line artisanal EVOO is meant to taste. No commitment to buy anything, now or ever.

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: Use Kion Aminos To Fuel Your Daily Workouts & Active Lifestyle
No matter how much protein you eat, you’ll still likely only be able to tap into half of the amino acids you consume, and amino acids are pretty important. They’re the building blocks of protein in the body, and they help you build new muscle, support energy production, and keep the systems in your body running smoothly.
Kion Aminos is a pure, plant-based essential amino acid formula. You just add the powder to ice-cold water and enjoy a refreshing, energizing drink for staying energized, boosting athletic recovery, and supporting lean muscle mass.
Click here to get your hands on Kion Aminos and never say “no” to an adventure again.
