Through the use of everyday experiences Bruce shares how God is available to us and meets each of us where we are. The stories inspire as a personal devotion or in a group/business setting.” Terra Lynn Dearth, (National) Director YMCA Christian Leadership Conferences and Rag/Leathers Program “Bruce has a gift of taking an everyday situation and finding God’s fingerprints. It’s a down to earth approach to making our spiritual walk come to life.
I relate to his writing and am inspired to open my eyes to try to find real lessons in my own life.” Bob Kahle, Executive Director Fairview Lakes YMCA Camps “Bruce Boyer’s writings inspire Christians who desire to discover the peace and joy in everyday moments. I highly recommend this book as a devotional. Reading it is an opportunity to help take a break from the demands of everyday life and consider the Glory of God as shown through acts of kindness and grace in our community.” Mayor Dawn H. Morgan The first two chapters of this book provide Bruce’s perspective of his son being lost in the Amazon rainforest, and how their rescue changed many lives. This true story has been nationally featured on two different Discovery Channel dramatizations; I Shouldn’t Be Alive (Into the Heart of Darkness episode) and Secrets of Survival (Lost in the Amazon.)
“Bruce Boyer is a sweet spirited man of God and this truth soaks through all of his devotional writings. His approach of taking the everyday event and seeing the way, the love, or the mission of God in the world today, will build up sensitivity in you to see God in your own life everyday as well! If you are an everyday man or woman of God looking for Him in your life you will love this devotional journey.”

This book is the result of a dream author Daniel Winklosky experienced in 1984 while in Kyoto, Japan. One night as he slept, he saw the words Self, Love, Goodness, Knowledge, and Oneness, emblazoned across a brilliant rainbow. From the moment he woke, he has searched for meaning and confirmation for those five words, which he feels define the stages of all our lives. He used many resource guides, attended lectures and classes as well as the Bible in his journey for knowledge and enlightenment. Each stage lasts 12 years. The focus for each stage is the maturing process of love, which defines one of our five levels of consciousness. At the highest level of love is spiritual consciousness; as we experience joy and unconditional love. This is our national destiny and promise. Do you accept the challenge to attain spiritual enlightenment?
In the same dream on three consecutive nights before the 9/11 tragedy, Daniel was in a high rise building, seeing an airplane coming at him. After 9/11, he became aware of how the consciousness of Americans awakened. There was the initial 3rd dimensional emotion of deadly vengeance. Weeks later the 4th dimensional conscious expression called for the capture of the culprits, their trial, and execution, if guilty. Months later came the 5th dimensional level of conscious thought, which questioned their hate, and how to replace hate with love. Finally, the 6th level of consciousness was understood by a few who knew God to be in control of all things, and aligned their Light energy to serve His will. This book is a reflection on the crucial issues facing every individual in the United States. How the scenarios will play out in the future is uncertain, even including the threat of nuclear war. Daniel recognized the five levels of consciousness within the American psyche, and now encourages America to WAKE UP to its true spirituality and eliminate evil as our national responsibility and destiny. It is his hope that these stories alert Americans to do the right thing, to believe in, return to the truth, and freedom as a Christian nation. The book reflects the varied experiences and beliefs he's enjoyed in this lifetime and now shares with you.

WRITER TO WRITER (The writing book I wish I'd had 20 years ago) is a book that gives sage advice to the seasoned as well as the beginning writer. One reading is not enough to grasp the impact that this book can have on a newbie's writing career. It touches on all aspects of writing and of the feelings that a fledging writer goes through. The easy to read short chapters give encouragement stimulation and a feeling that you don't have to be alone as a writer. As the author takes the reader through the events that led to her publication one gets the sense that they can do it too.
