This should find the first occurrence of the word and bookmark it
Sub FindAndBookmark()
Dim rng As Range
Set rng = ActiveDocument.Range
With rng.Find
    .Text = "theText"
    .MatchWholeWord = True
    If .Execute() Then
        ActiveDocument.Bookmarks.Add "theBkMark", rng
    End If
End With
End Sub
