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.

“He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is secure, he will have no fear.” (Psalm 112:7-8, NIV)

One of the biggest surprises to me through this whole pandemic is a sociological one involving shopping patterns, particularly one item.

Toilet paper.



There’s just so much here! We know how the story ends, you know, Jesus calms the storm, asks his disciples what they were afraid of, etc. But I want to spend some time here on what Jesus was doing during the storm (because I think it has a lot to teach us right now.) He was sleeping. What the what?
