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.)
Kion Energy Bar…Popsicles?
As you know, Kion is my personal playground for all things health and wellness.
So sometimes I can’t help but get a little bit creative with their products…
Like making Kion Energy Bars into popsicles. Yes, you read that right: POPSICLES.
I know it sounds weird, but they turned out delicious and the instructions are really quite simple:
1. Soak two to three finely chopped Kion bars in coconut water (or liquid of choice) for 24 hours in a glass jar.
2. Pour into popsicle molds.
3. Freeze for at least 24 hours.
3. Dip in almond butter for added taste (optional)
Yep, that’s literally all you need to do! You can enjoy these delicious popsicles as a mid-day, protein-packed snack or even as a low sugar dessert; they’re that good.
(Just an FYI: I think this only works with Kion’s Energy Bars because they’re made with *real food.* I’m honestly not sure how this would turn out with other franken-food energy bars…)
You can get your hands on these Kion Energy Bars here, and if you want to get creative with them too, make your own popsicles or even sprinkle them on top of ice cream. Yummm.

Product Of The Week:
::: Save 10% On Premium Blue Light-Blocking Glasses :::
Humans have evolved for millions of years in full-spectrum, natural sunlight, which is loaded with healing near-infrared light.
However most modern light sources, like LED’s and screen devices, have absolutely no near-infrared, so they are actually terrible for our cellular health. Imagine running your car engine without oil. Yup, not good. But that’s what we’re doing by having lots of bright visible light without near-infrared.
The good news is that there’s something really simple you can do: wear blue-light blocking glasses.
Ra Optics Daylight Lenses protect your eyes, brain, and cellular health by filtering out the excess high-energy light produced by man-made light sources from our screens and light sources in workplaces, schools, grocery stores, hospitals, and everywhere else.
When you wear them, you can really feel your mind relax, and you can actually do your computer work without feeling like junk by the end of the day.
They also created Sunset Lenses, which you throw on after sunset to block the blue light that disrupts your body’s rhythm, allowing your brain to secrete melatonin naturally, as if you were living out in nature with only fire-light at night.
Ra Optics glasses are my go-to any time I’m exposed to harmful sources of light and I want to protect my eyes, my mind, and my sleep—which also means my recovery and my overall performance the next day.
Check out Ra Optics here and be sure to use the code BEN10 at checkout to save 10% on your order.
PS: They just released 4 new amazing styles, too! Don’t wait too long, because they were just sold out of everything for almost a month…

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
50%. That’s the amount of amino acids you actually absorb from food.
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.
