My sister Cyn and me with Grampo

My sister Cyn and me with our beloved Grampo

Back on August 9, 1941, my grandfather, Herb Bolsta, copyrighted two original parodies: The Night Before X-Mess and Casey at the Battiest. For many years, he performed these humorous pieces at public functions and gatherings in Ortonville, the small Minnesota town where he lived. He then passed the torch to my dad, Kent Bolsta, a natural ham, who never missed an opportunity to perform one of these parodies at one of the countless public events he emceed or participated in. My dad had updated the parodies, and my sister, Cyn Bolsta, and I recently tweaked them a bit more. What’s very cool is that, while editing and recording The Night Before X-Mess, Cyn and I felt like we were collaborating with our dad and Grampo (as we called our grandfather). Cyn and I are proud to carry on the family tradition and present The Night Before X-Mess. We hope you like it!

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.

SiSe_fullcover_final.inddPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed.
