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.

You can book an appointment at my booking link below:

I think what we love about superheroes is their superpowers. It’s what makes them stand out, makes them unique from all the other superheroes. And we want to feel unique too. But more importantly, I think we love how they use their superpowers for good (most of the time, The Incredible Hulk notwithstanding.) You know, fight against evil, rescue the oppressed, save the world and all that.

It awakens something in us.



Being as it’s February and the love month and Valentines and all that, I thought it might be a good time to blog about love. Well, actually loves. Because love can mean a whole lot of things in our culture. For instance, I love coffee. I also love my wife. And I love hiking. I also love Boston. (The band, not the city. Don’t judge me.) Additionally, I love my son, my parents, my siblings, my friends, etc. But those are all very different kinds of love.
