SELECTIVE BIOGRAPHY ON AUTHOR BRAD WYRICK
Brad's Purpose as an author is to help people connect with God through the Truth of God's Word. He has a passion for New Believers in Christ and has written and taught Bible Studies for over thirty years. Hearing God's voice, pursuing God's purpose, applying God's truth and conforming into the Image of Christ is what each of his books will always aim to communicate.
Wyrick grew up in California during the 1960s and 1970s and took part in both the Hippie and Jesus movements. One of the reasons Brad is especially grateful for God’s forgiveness is because of the place that God has brought him from. Even though Brad accepted Christ in a church tent in California (Calvary Chapel) in 1969, Brad himself will admit he was far from being a saint during many seasons of his life.
Since rededicating his life to the Lord in 1978, Brad has had a love for and voracious appetite for the Word of God. He moved into a discipleship home run by Christians (The Lord’s House) and spent a year there studying the Bible and building a foundation in Christ.
Continuing to pursue his Purpose in Life he then attended Calvary Chapel Bible College, in the mountains of Arrowhead in California. Brad taught New Believer Classes at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa and at the Vineyard Church in Newport Beach. Also, leading Kinship groups and Small groups over the years.

“Each Day Is A Day Closer to Eternity” . . .
Titles By Brad Wyrick
The world is going to pass away and the lust thereof. Then the question, “what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” What would you take for your soul? Some of you have been wandering in the wilderness in your Christian experience, maintaining a barren soul—His image, just a dimming light. God is calling you to spark up the flame, pass over Jordan, and enter the promised land.
Once upon a Midlife crisis, I found myself staring in my mirror, chanting, “You have potential, believe, receive and conquer the day. I will never fail only sale-sale-sale because I love myself and deserve all.” Chasing my shadow, seeking my image, looking into mirrors only to find the wrong reflection of my soul.
When I was a Sales Rep, I bought into the self-esteem movement. I was visualizing my future posting pictures of cars, houses, and buckets full of money all around my home. All I needed to achieve; was to believe it to be true. Think it, feel it, and receive it.
To my surprise, this career was short-lived. I never attain anything in all the books I bought and the seminars I paid to attend. Selling a weight loss product for a year, and I never lost a pound. I could not even push self-esteem motivational tapes even after all the prep in front of the mirror.
Even as a kid, I bought into POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN, otherwise known as the Great Spinach Conspiracy.
“I’m Popeye the Sailor Man. I am strong to the finich, cause I eats me spinach. I’m Popeye the Sailor Man.” I would flex in front of the mirror after each portion of that green stuff. Never looking like the bodybuilder promised, I lost all faith in this guy
The most painful deception was when I realized walking on fire only burnt my feet—seeking my potential in the reflection of my mirror only for it to laugh out loud at me. Self-image, self-esteem with all their trappings only held up my real purpose in life. Even then, God’s still small voice was saying, “It is My Image Stupid!”
God's Word tells us to esteem others more highly than ourselves. To humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift us. Also, who, by giving any thought, could add one hair to their head. Jesus put it this way, " And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?” (Luke 12:25).
Still, destined to be like Him, even though we lost our image of God in the garden. He is the only "pattern" we must follow. And because he lives his life in us, we too can "walk even as He walked,” "do as He did,” "love as He loved,” "forgive as He forgave,” and "have this mind which was also in Christ Jesus." Because He became like us, we can identify with Him, and we can become like Him.
Satan’s greatest weapon is man’s ignorance of God’s Word! Additionally, half of the truth is the worst part of the lie. With every temptation, there is a lie involved. (1) The Prove It Lie, (2) The “For It Is Written” Lie, and (3) The Short Cut Lie. The devil deceived Eve in the garden with these lies while Jesus was victorious in the wilderness.
The devil would have us conform to the ways of this world through peer pressure. The Christian life is so different from the world’s way of thinking. The world wants their self-esteem to feel good, while God tells us to esteem others more highly than ourselves.
Satan’s greatest weapon is man’s ignorance of God’s Word! Scriptural truth should always be at the threshold of every decision we face in life. He has laid out the promises, principles, provisions, and pathways that will inspire each of us to discover His Will.
Scripture proclaims we must be born again of the spirit, enter the fellowship of His suffering, be conformed into His image, and live in the power of His resurrection. Taking this path will lead to a successful and rewarding life. Jesus is dead serious about His Word; in fact, He died to keep His Word.
Furthermore, there was “No Room in the Inn” for Jesus, yet that didn’t stop Him from fulfilling His purpose! Remember, you are the innkeeper of your heart; only you can clean out your stable and remove the no vacancy sign.

A Life Mission Statement is a description of what you believe God wants you to do with your life. It will focus on developing your (character) and identifying your (contributions and achievements) and on the values and principles upon which God would have you live.
HOW TO DISCOVER, DESIGN & APPLY YOUR GOD GIVEN LIFE MISSION will help you discover God’s Will, increase your Decision-Making abilities, direct your Goal-Setting and define a Time-Management System.
Our goal is to measure up to God’s plan and He wants to be part of our decision process. To leave Him out by ignoring prayer and the truths of Scripture denies us the privilege of God's perspective, which He is always willing to share. Deliberate prayer and conformity to the principles of Scripture. brings the matter before God's Throne. His Word will provide the guidelines within which we can make a right decision.
Effectively translating your goals into an action plan requires creating a framework for effective decision making throughout your life. Time is a space in eternity. In fact, the way we spend our time will determine how we will live in Eternity. Our present space in time is our preparation for eternity.
Today Is A Day Closer to Eternity. Are You LIVING YOUR LIFE ON PURPOSE or JUST LIVING?
GOD’S PAST PROMISES MEET OUR PRESENT RESPONSE answers these questions by providing Two Critical Principles of God’s Word. 1) God’s past promises meet our present response, 2) Faith is believing God’s Word and acting upon it.
God is the Promise Keeper! In fact, Jesus Spilt His Blood on The Cross to Fulfil His Promise to us for Eternal Salvation. Applying this Promise brings opportunities and responsibilities. We are called to deny ourselves and follow Jesus. If We Get a Splinter while Picking Up Our Cross to Follow Christ It Won’t Kill Us.
GOD’S PROMISES, PRINCIPLES, & PROVISIONS looks at God’s Eternal Redemptive Plan for mankind. Throughout Scripture, we see God’s desire to rescue mankind from their sins. The forgiveness of our sins is grounded in our belief that Jesus Christ was crucified and resurrected. Our Born-Again Transformation restores His Image, making Him Lord of our lives.
Faith is believing GOD’S WORD and acting upon it. God is the Promise Keeper and Jesus is the WORD. JESUS CHRIST is dead serious about His Word, in fact He DIED for it. Therefore, we will take a Systematic Approach to studying Doctrinal TRUTH.
Scripture teaches for every Promise, there are Principles we must follow which become the Processes for Application. God’s Processes and Provisions are the glue that holds together His Perfect Plan of Eternal Life.
GOD’S PROMISES, PRINCIPLES, & PROVISIONS is written for anyone seeking to grow in the knowledge of Christ. Be it salvation, faith, transformation, trails, or prayer; God has Promises for all our needs.
Spanning 6 decades, from the Hippie period of the 1960s, right through to the present day, each poem can easily stand alone as an example of faith and God’s love, while still contributing to the work as a whole.
Imaginative and creative, Son Runners is a compilation which doesn’t just look at the glorious end product of seeking and finding God, but seeks out the hard parts of it as well, like running from Him and being found again.
Suitable for reading from start to finish, or simply as a pick-me-up when life seems to be unbearable, Son Runners has the ability to lift your soul to the heights and help you find your own path to Jesus Christ.
