Passionate, Authentic, Funny, Gospel-Centered

Bruce W. Martin

Author, Speaker, Counselor, Adventurer

Welcome to my online home!

Hi, I’m Bruce. I’m an author, speaker, counselor and mission coach who loves the outdoors! I’m not gonna lie. I’m also in recovery from 23 years of being a pastor. I talk fast, tend to overshare, love to laugh, and I’m crazy serious about following Jesus. I believe everyone has a mission and purpose in life, and part of mine is to help you find yours.

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 Gospel in your everyday life. I’ll help you do that when you subscribe here. Seriously, do it now.

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

But all of our routines have created the results we’re experiencing in our lives.
