Well, that was easily the most amazing trip I've ever taken in my life. For those who might not know, I've just returned from a week-long trip of visiting 17 military bases abroad (15 in Iraq) with Chuck Norris who of course needs no introduction. (Chuck and his wife Gena--a 4th generation resident of my small rural Northern California town--have attended the Church I pastor the past several years).
The best way I can describe the trip is through a series of adjectives. It was the most moving, inspiring, surreal, indescribable, exhilarating, Chuck-pervading, rough, tough, hot, thirsty, sweaty, dirty, dusty, gutsy, risky, life-exhilarating week of my life. And it prompted us to admire our service men and women even more than what we do--which is already overflowing with patriot pride!
Despite how we got into the war, and despite how we feel about it now, those are our troops and they deserve our support. I was honored to accompany Chuck over there, and even more honored to meet so many of our service men and women. The photos I'll show you from the trip still move and inspire me...

After two years of work together, Todd just completed writing the official autobiography of Chuck Norris' 90-year-old mother, Wilma Norris Knight, as told from her perspective (with over 100 photos throughout). It is simply titled, "Acts of Kindness: My Story."
The foreword was written by her sons, Chuck and Aaron Norris. This is the only biography that Wilma endorses, so don't accept counterfeits. Todd describes Wilma's life and inspirational book as "True Grit meets Grapes of Wrath and Pilgrim's Progress!" More information about its content and publication will be posted soon at www.WilmaNorris.com. For now, it is available only at www.ChuckNorris.com.

While Todd was on "The Next Great Awakening Tour" of various historic sites from Boston to D.C., he and the tour group experienced again the distortions and omissions of America's religious history--this time at the very center of our republic 250 years ago--Independence Hall, where our founders debated and adopted the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. You won't believe how the National Park Service's expert guide on America's founders responded to Todd's question about the founders' religious affiliation! To find out more, check out Todd's story and research rebuttal on this website: "Independence Hall: Independent from God?"
Fidelis Publishing produces an expanded paperback version of Chuck's New York Times bestseller, "Black Belt Patriotism," as well as produces Chuck in a new PSA ("Patriot Service Announcement") in which he discusses the status of America. You can watch it by clicking HERE.
Chuck Norris (with Chaplain Todd) wrote "The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book: 101 of Chuck's Favorite Facts and Stories" (Tyndale Publishing--released on 11/1/09).
Unless you've been on a deserted island, you know about some of the thousands of mythical sayings about Chuck Norris presented as "facts" about his life, like "Chuck Norris doesn't wear Superman pajamas; Superman wears Chuck Norris pajamas." Over the last several years, Chuck has been asked repeatedly from the heartland of America to the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan, "Which 'facts' are your favorites?" For the first time ever, in "The Official Chuck Norris Fact Book," Chuck gives readers not only his 101 favorite facts, roundhouse-kicked by the man himself, but also the stories behind the facts and the code (or core values) by which Chuck lives his life (5-F's: freedom, faith, family, fitness and fight). From stories about his martial arts and movie and television careers, to intimate stories about his faith and family, fans from every corner of the globe will enjoy, laugh and be inspired by one of the world's great action heroes. Hilarious Chuck Norris caricature drawings accompany each of the 101 entries. See and read the actual first 5 entries by pressing HERE. This book makes a perfect (Christmas) gift for young and old, military personnel, anyone who needs a laugh or encouragement, etc. It should be the ultimate reading in every bathroom around the world! And right now it can be ordered via Amazon for under $10!
