My Latest Fascinating Discoveries: Cool New Things I’m Trying, Books I’m Reading, And More!
A New Song To Inspire The True Meaning Of Christmas
I was recently inspired to write a new song, just in time for Christmas.
As you will hear, I arranged this song to have a bit of a “vintage” holiday feel, and recruited my twin sons for the background vocals (that’s them you hear in the “oohs” and “ahhs”).
True story: I woke up at 4:30 am one morning with the melody and idea for this song going through my head, and got up and wrote it in about 20 minutes! Inspiration struck…what can I say?
The message of the song is this: as we grow older, we begin to lose our ability to dream and believe in the invisible. The idea of “miracles” becomes illogical and distant. If this is the case for you, you may be ignoring something vital: that the biggest miracle is within yourself. You are the greatest and most unique wonder of Creation. We look around us for miracles and often don’t realize the biggest miracle is right underneath our own noses, inside us.
Thanks for listening. From the Greenfield home to your home, Merry Christmas.
My “Stupid Easy” Wild Game Roast Recipe
OK, so what came later on in the day after my superfood birthday smoothie (recipe here)?
My family and I birthday-feasted on my “stupid easy” wild game roast. This quick trick will impress your friends and family and make them think you’re some crazy fancy French chef…
…but it’s one of those “set it and forget it” walk-away recipes that tastes melt-in-your-mouth DELICIOUS and is *perfect* for wild game, though it works for any meat, really. 🤤

My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now
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 50% On High-Quality Children’s Vitamins :::
Children’s vitamins are basically candy in disguise.
They’re loaded with up to an average of two teaspoons of sugar, unhealthy chemicals, and other gummy junk that growing kids should never eat. I grew up on the Flinstones vitamins and had no clue…but now I know better.
But considering even the healthiest of kids generally need to fill gaps in their diets, pediatricians still do recommend a daily children’s multivitamin to “fill in the gaps” a growing kid needs, and also to address the common nutrient deficiencies found in modern food.
That’s why the folks at a company called “Hiya” created a chewable vitamin that’s pediatrician-approved for kids of all ages – and isn’t a nasty, chemical-filled sugar-bomb disguised as a “vitamin.”
Formulated with the help of nutritional experts, Hiya is created with a blend of twelve organic fruits and veggies, then supercharged with fifteen essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin D, B12, C, Zinc, and several other compounds to help support a growing child’s immunity, energy, brain function, mood, concentration, teeth, bones, and more.
While most children’s vitamins are filled with up to five grams of sugar and can contribute to a variety of health issues, Hiya is made with zero sugar and zero gummy junk, yet it tastes great (thanks to sweetness from monk fruit), perfect for picky eaters. And it’s non-GMO, vegan, dairy-free, allergy-free, gelatin-free, nut-free, and everything else good you can imagine. In other words…it’s nothing like those Flinstones vitamins I (and maybe you too!) used to pop like candy back in the day.
Hiya also is completely reimagining vitamin packaging. Your first order arrives fresh with a 30-day supply, refillable glass bottle to decorate, and then no-plastic refill pouches are sent monthly on a pediatrician-recommended schedule so you have one less thing to worry about. Nice, right? And what’s even nicer is that Hiya is offering a “sweet” 50% deal on your first order.
They taste great. They’re well formulated. My sons love them. I’ve even been known to sneak a few myself, as they’re kind of like a healthy gummy bear, without the sugar. So try Hiya, and ditch the other frankenfood multivitamins.
Click here to get your hands on Hiya vitamins, and save 50% off (automatically applied at checkout).
