Welcome to The Home of The Blessing!

This is the home base for anyone looking to live and give the incredible, biblical gift of love and acceptance found in The Blessing.

What you’ll find here is a team of people committed to helping YOU do two things.

  1. First to know how to BLESS those around you – which you’ll discover is your job! (1 Peter 3).

  2. And equally as important is for YOU to receive a Blessing yourself. Particularly if you grew up as a child in a home where you never got The Blessing.

You’ll find a great starting place here.

WHERE DO I START?

There are 2 easy first steps you can take:

  1. Get the just released version of the million selling book, The Blessing, (which we’ve just completed an outstanding new audio book as well).
  2. You’ll also find here a great “first step course” to get you started in Blessing others, called The Blessing Challenge.

HOW CAN I GO DEEPER?

1. Start or Join a Blessing Group.

If you’re reading the book, here’s where you can register your “Blessing Group” and start learning how to create a “culture” of the Blessing in your home, workplace, school or ministry.

2. Take a Blessing Course

You’ll also be able to go even deeper with a group of friends or yourself, by taking our Blessing Course

You can find out more information about our course, and how you can get discounts for you and your friends here.

3. Check out Our Resources

From the blog & podcast - to Facebook Lives, Zoom trainings and more - we are committed to helping you live out The Blessing, and are creating new content for you everyday. 

If you don't see something you are looking for, or if there's a topic you'd like to know more about - feel free to contact us - we'd love to hear from you!

ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO NOW? 

We believe you’ve landed here by divine appointment.

We’ve seen so many people change the life of someone else (from a parent to a roommate, to a friend to someone you’re serving alongside). You will be able to point people who are hurting - or often times, just lost - move towards a positive future as they get the Blessing from you.

And again, our prayer is that YOUR life will be changed as well. Perhaps by you getting a Blessing right here as you dig into this amazing, life-changing biblical concept.

We’re busy adding podcasts and blogs, articles and courses to help in your job of Blessing others. 

In short, this is world headquarters in giving, getting, and living The Blessing. And we are here to help you along the way!


WHAT IS THE BLESSING?

For each of us, regardless of our age, the acceptance of our parents and significant others in our life is incredibly important. Many people spend a lifetime searching for something the Bible calls, The Blessing.

The Blessing is a “life or death” choice someone significant makes to “add high value” to someone else. (Deut. 30:19). With our friends, spouse, children, even those we work with or meet throughout our daily life, we are either “choosing” to “bless” (add) or “curse” (subtract) these people

There were 5 “elements” of The Blessing we can learn to give and live! And when we do bless others, picture a door closed, that someone has longed all their lives to open. The Blessing – your Blessing powered by God’s Blessing - is a way to open that door of acceptance and unconditional love for someone that can be literally life-changing and healing for them!

IS THE BLESSING FOR ME?

If we could reach out right now and lay our hand on your shoulder – and ask you to look at us in the eye – we’d tell you that there is nothing wrong with wanting the love and acceptance that the Blessing can bring us. Nothing wrong with the way so many of us have longed for that kind of acceptance from someone significant, all our lives.

We’ve all had people “step away” from us – subtract from us. (Which you’ll learn is the biblical definition of what it means when someone “curses” us). Enough is enough. It’s time for you to receive a Blessing and from that place of healing and hope, learn how to give the Blessing to others as well.

DOES GIVING SOMEONE MY BLESSING REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE? 

Absolutely, unequivocally, 100% YES!

But you don't have to take our word for it.

Watch the video below to see just how important your Blessing can be.

We also have more videos, and stories of how The Blessing has helped changed over 2 million lives in our resources.
