Words Fitly Spoken are “like apples of gold in settings of silver,” according to Proverbs 25:11. The poetic words of Bruce Goodpaster display those burnished apples in a variety of silver settings. Some reflect dreams or visions, some come from the refinement of trials and sickness, others from meditation on God’s faithful promises. All draw the reader away from daily struggles with worry and uncertainty and toward the encouragement found in God’s promise that He is returning soon to rule and reign.

Bruce grew up in a Christian home in the Midwest and accepted Jesus as his personal savior as a child. While in the Navy he met the Navigators who greatly influenced his spiritual growth by emphasizing Bible study and Scripture memory. During his employment years he managed retirement communities and nursing homes for 35 years in Indiana, Ohio, and Maryland. 
After retiring in Littlestown, PA, he began writing more poetry, most of them centered on spiritual themes. Because of his interest in prophecy and the end times, many of his poems relate to the certainty of Christ’s imminent return to earth and the importance of being ready to meet the Lord in the air. Goodpaster frequently takes copies of his poems to share with people he meets at restaurants, airports, and dialysis. He has also begun speaking about his life experiences to various churches and men’s groups. Bruce and Carol have been married 45 years and have five children and 17 grandchildren.
