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.)
You Can Train Your Brain To Combat Stress, Anxiety, Panic, Depression, and More
Our brain is constantly rewiring itself based on what we see, read, hear, and imagine. For example, the more you tell yourself a certain thought, the more you're going to believe it. The bad news is, if we're constantly thinking negative thoughts, we're prone to experience more feelings of anxiousness or depression.
But there's good news, too: this means you can also train your brain out of negative thinking…and it only takes one text message a day.
I just discovered a really cool service for “brain training” called Cope Notes, which provides daily mental health support using text messages designed to provide the consistent interruptions necessary to replace old thought patterns with healthier ones.
Johnny Crowder, the founder of Cope Notes, spent his formative years searching for resources to help him cope with his mental health conditions, ranging from OCD and bipolar disorder to schizophrenia. After nearly a decade of clinical treatment, volunteer peer counseling, and public advocacy, Crowder now relies on the strategies he shares through Cope Notes to live a happier, healthier life than ever before, and wants to share it with the world.
And it works. 86% of Cope Notes subscribers report improved mental & emotional health after just 30 days.
So, that's why I want to share it with you!
My Brand New Boundless Cookbook NFT Collection
Yeah, yeah, I know that this new world of NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) is a bit of a foreign concept to some people, maybe even you…
…but I personally love the idea of being able to own a piece of digital art that ONLY I can own, that can never be taken away from me or sold or copied without my secure permission, and that, perhaps most importantly, is linked to some kind of a physical value.
For example, if you own a digital football card of your favorite quarterback when the season starts, you could get season tickets on the fifty-yard line to all their games…
…or if you own an art piece designed by your favorite artists, you get to have a private online art creation class with them…
…or (*ahem*) if you own a mouthwatering digital recipe art by your favorite biohacker wannabe chef (heh), you unlock a private cooking class with that chef.
Did that last example ring a bit close to home? If it did, you're on the right track because…
That's right: you can now go “bid” to own your own digital recipe card that features one of the tasty, unique, biohacked recipes from my Boundless Cookbook…AND…if you own that recipe card (meaning, you've decided not to turn around and sell it at a profit on an NFT auction, which of course, you're also free to do), this summer you're going to get to take a private online cooking class and have a private online dinner party with me!
Ready, set, GO! (and if any are sold out, you can still bid on them).
Click here to choose which recipe(s) you want to bid on and own, and when you do, you'll unlock instant access to secret content that automatically gets you into a private, online VIP group of just 12 people who get to hang, cook, eat, and party with me this summer.

Articles I Published This Week:
Product Of The Week:
::: Save 15% On The Best Fuel For Your Brain :::
But the truth is, optimal brain nutrition isn’t about one “magic ingredient.” It’s about the right combination of ingredients that fully accounts for the complexity of neurochemistry.
Qualia Mind gets this right more than any nootropic stack on the planet.
Its 28 ingredients for mental performance and brain health are impressive, but the real magic comes from the synergies between those ingredients. Each compound was chosen and combined through painstaking ingredient synergy research by the team at Neurohacker (all of which they share publicly on their website, if you're curious).
That's exactly why I call Qualia Mind “The God Pill.” I can tell you from firsthand experience that the difference in my focus, energy, memory, and mood is undeniable when I take this stuff, and I literally become unstoppable for the rest of the day.

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's 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.
