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
In case you haven't heard the news, my latest book was just released!
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.)
Use Light to Enhance Cognitive Function, Improve Brain Health, & More
You might be wondering why I look like a human-cyborg in this photo…
Don't worry, I haven't become a transhumanist. I'm simply wearing my new Vielight Duo device (which allows me to stimulate Alpha or Gamma brainwaves with a single headset) combined with the Vielight XPlus device, which is an “upgrade” to my previous Vielight, which offered infrared light therapy for the head only. Now, with the Duo, I can also target my vagus nerve, thymus, and gut while I am simultaneously using the head version.
The scientists at Vielight have managed to combine engineering with scientific research to create photobiomodulation devices that deliver energy into various locations on the body, using a concept called Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT involves the application of red and near-infrared light over injuries or lesions to improve wound and soft tissue healing, while also reducing inflammation and providing relief.
VielightDuo uses LLLT specifically targeted to the brain (via your cranium, and yes, up your nose) to help promote brain health and function. I personally use mine three mornings out of the week to help boost cognitive function and fight against disease.
It might look a bit bulky and wonky, but take it from me, the benefits are definitely worth a few weird looks from your family. It's like a cup of coffee for your head, paired with the peace of mind you're keeping Alzheimers and dementia at bay. I've also found that Alpha mode is amazing pre-sleep or during meditation and Gamma is really effective pre-workout or at the beginning of the day.

The New Skin Serum From Greenfield Botanics (Designed By My Aunt!)
I've used some kind of high-quality, organic serum in my skincare routine for years, and have seen a remarkable improvement in my skin’s texture, radiance, and firmness as a result.
The Greenfield Botanics Pure Radiance Serum has been my formula of choice for a while now, and is jam-packed with certified organic ingredients like Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Organic Golden Jojoba Oil, Organic Amla, Organic Carrot Seed Oil, Organic Rose Geranium Oil, and many more potent, skin-nourishing ingredients. It’s lightweight enough to be my go-to, daily skin serum, it helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and damage, and the fragrance is absolutely amazing (for both dudes and ladies!).
You may also dig some of their other products I've been recently adding into my daily skincare mix, such as their 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. In fact, I love to use this exact one-two combo especially right after the hot tub or a sauna session.
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 self-care ritual and treat yourself to the at-home spa experience your skin deserves.

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.
Get your hands on the all-new Kion Sleep so you can “rest assured” that you're getting the best, high-quality sleep possible.
*The FDA hasn't evaluated these statements. Kion products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
