Biography 


A Southern California native, Bruce T. Forbes is an award-winning author and hymnist. His religious short stories have been published world-wide in children's religious magazines, and his patriotic stories, essays, editorials, and poems have been published throughout the U.S. military newspaper system. He has appeared in guest editorial columns at Israeli internet news sites on the topics of Peace & Religious Harmony. Mr. Forbes is the father of eight children (six living) and thrice a grandfather. He served for two years as a missionary in Japan and has taught children's religious classes for over twenty years. He continues to look for new ways to teach children through story, poem, and song. As a military man, he and his family have lived in Mississippi, England, Hawaii, Illinois, Germany, Israel, Turkey, Italy, and Washington DC. After two decades of such wandering, however, they have settled in the western United States and are enthusiastically sinking roots. Mr. Forbes is currently the music leader for the children's auxiliary in his congregation, and his goal is for the children to learn the Gospel message, learn to love to sing to God, and to make a "Joyful Noise". He says: "As a missionary and as a military man, I've traveled the world and seen a lot of good and a lot of beauty. I have also seen a lot of ugliness. It seems all the beauty I've seen can be attributed to a very loving God - This is what I want to spend the rest of my life celebrating."

Better Than an Olympic Medal

by Bruce T. Forbes

A short story written in 2007 purely for the fun of it. This is not autobiographical; just a funny story. It's amazing what a man, even a mature one, will do to impress a beautiful woman.
