Husband, father, singer, songwriter, worship leader, youth pastor, and most recently added to Daryl Boyer’s list of titles in 2016 is recording artist.
Never in all the winding roads of lost opportunity, sorrow, brokenness, and even addiction, did Daryl Boyer ever think he would be in the place of writing and recording music in the Christian music industry. Daryl’s story begins with years of hurt and hard living later turning around into a story of redemption, life changing truth, and the discovery of a selfless and genuine purpose for the Lord.
Daryl spent many years struggling in a hopeless place of depression and alcoholism, while missing the truth of who he really was and what his purpose in life was supposed to look like. Daryl Quotes “Way to often we become blind by our own emotions that are taking over our life, we find ourselves looking at life through a false perspective and trying to apply bandages to get us through the moments of pain and difficulty. Usually the bandages that we apply are anything but good for us, and usually they only put us into deeper problems and heavier emotional bondage. Habits of escape, drinking, drugs, and denial will never move us ahead or fix a single thing. Sadly, without us learning to change the perspective and find real truth, we will never discover just how valuable, loved, and unique we each are. “
Navigating this broken road of lies and self-destructive thinking launched Daryl into truly discovering His loving Heavenly Father, as he really was, not as an angry disappointed father. Daryl quotes, “I discovered that God was a father who is always looking on in love, believing we all have value, purpose, a calling, and really matter equally in His eyes.” Daryl’s journey led him to discover that his identity was not in what people thought of him or even what he had or had not accomplished. Instead, Daryl discovered that God had declared he was worthy and could be a blessing when the focus was turned away from himself and stead redirected to loving others by walking in the Father’s daily grace and forgiveness.
Armed with a new perspective and real truth Daryl’s mission moving forward was simple, to share the truth and share his story, raw and real, just as it was. Daryl has learned to write songs from his life perspective and daily reality while praying daily that the words of his music touch the lives of others in a way that draws them closer to the father and the truth of his word.
