Purpose, Meaning, Hope

Bruce W. Martin

Keynote Speaker, Author, Coach, Outdoor Adventure Guide

Welcome to my online home!

I am an international keynote speaker and a leading expert on how to find greater meaning, purpose and hope in life. I’m the award-winning author of Desperate For Hope which reached the Amazon Top 100 in Christian books. A Professional Member of the National Speakers Association, I speak extensively on living fearlessly, investing your life, and finding purpose, meaning and hope. I’m the founder of Invest Your Life, a successful coaching and counseling practice with over 300 clients worldwide, helping companies and individuals fulfill their purpose in the world. I’m also the founder of Born 2 Be Wild, an outdoor adventure company that takes people on 2 to 7 day spiritual transformation backpacking trips where people find God, community, and purpose in the backcountry.

I blog about hope, mission, the Gospel in culture, marriage stuff, and how to invest our lives in what matters most. More than anything, I want to help you live out the Way of Christ in your everyday life. 

I provide Christ-centered counseling to individuals, couples and families for marriage problems, family issues, relational struggles, personal integrity, spiritual life & faith  concerns, as well as purpose coaching.
