About Bruce Abrams

Sometimes all you need is someone to help show you the way, and it's no different when it comes to your finances. Whether you're just starting out in your career or are preparing for the retirement of your dreams, I'm here to listen, understand, and help guide you along your financial journey.


Following a fulfilling career in the Risk Management industry, I returned to Texas with my family in 2019 to live closer to family and life-long friends, where we made our new home in the Spring/Tomball area. Thrivent has held a special place in my family's lives for many years, so it only made sense for me to join their team as a Financial Advisor, which I did in the Fall of 2020.

    Perry Flowers

    Perry Flowers

    For the Flowers family, the past few years have brought about many changes and the trends continues today! Perry, her husband, Jeff, and their son, Haden, made 'the big move' from Hideaway Lake to Tyler in early 2020. Shortly thereafter, Perry exchanged a career as a Physical Therapist for a career with Thrivent as a Financial Advisor, and ultimately partnered with Steve to form Compass Financial Group in Tyler.


    Her interests as a Financial Advisor are strongest in college planning strategies and meeting, engaging and financially educating women. When she's not at the office, you can find her and her family at the tennis courts, playing golf, or playing soccer with friends.

      Steve Emmons

      Steve joined Thrivent in the fall of 1997 after a career as a wedding photographer. While he enjoyed being a part of a couple's special day, the weekends were spent away from his young family, and a new career in financial planning was truly a blessing from God.

      He has enjoyed the many life transitions he has assisted in planning for, while building meaningful relationships with clients and clients whom he now calls 'friend'.


      Steve is truly a full-service Financial Advisor, with vast experience with life insurance, estate planning, and tax strategies in retirement. Steve looks forward to continued work with Thrivent and serving his community for years to come.
