Try working with this...

With ActiveDocument .Bookmarks("bkName")
    .Range.InsertBefore txtName.Value
    .Range.Font.Bold = True
End With
See the article "Working with Bookmarks in VBA” at:
http://www.word.mvps.org/FAQs/MacrosVBA/WorkWithBookmarks.htm
If the bookmarks already exist as "PlaceHolder" Bookmarks, you could use the following code:
Dim bmRange As Range
Set bmRange = ActiveDocument.Bookmarks("bkName").Range
With bmRange
   .Text = txtName.Value
   .Font.Bold = True
End With
