Publisher's Summary

Either by choice or by circumstance, we all encounter times of starting over. Seasons of hardships, abundance, seeking, and struggle all have a purpose because growth demands change. Dare to Bloom urges us to be both vulnerable and resilient in new seasons of life as we boldly position ourselves for what God has for us next. Serial entrepreneur and author, Zim Flores (neè Ugochukwu), reveals the challenges she's faced and how even her failures have helped shape her sense of purpose.

Her parents had big plans for her life. The daughter of Nigerian immigrants, Zim Flores was uprooted from her community as a young girl, marking the beginning of her quest for true identity. Though she experienced unprecedented worldly success as a teenager and young adult, Zim declares that even when we feel pressured by the world around us, our true identity is never at risk.

In Dare to Bloom, Zim offers practical and hard-won truths about:

  • How to reclaim your true identity
  • How to surrender your desired outcomes to God
  • How to move forward after broken friendships
  • How to find comfort during your darkest hours
  • How to navigate new beginnings with hope for whatever is next
  • How to joyfully participate in your own story - even when you don't know what the future holds

Dare to Bloom is a powerful gift for listeners in times of transition or struggle who need a reminder that their true identity never changes. It empowers those who feel stuck in their current circumstances to follow God obediently into the unknown, finding joy in each new beginning. Inside you'll find:

  • Breathtaking photography from Zim's travels
  • Thoughtful questions for reflection at the end of each chapter
  • Zimisms - wisdom-filled phrases from the author

When everything changes around us, it can be easy to think that we're only as good as our last success. Though our identities are challenged day by day, Dare to Bloom encourages us to reclaim our identity in God, who is unchanging through it all. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Beautifully Written, Inspirational Book

This book is short, but beautifully written and carefully crafted with inspiring words and testimonies of new beginnings that come after seasons of pain and brokenness. Every story Zim tells is interlaced with stories from the Bible, giving a modern-day visual of principles God gave us to navigate through painful endings and new beginnings.

It’s a truly beautiful book. Definitely recommend.

So appropriate for this time in my life

I had seen an influencer I follow repost this book. As soon as I read the description, I decided it was not a book I wanted to read. I had told myself that I wasn't listening to any books this year that were along the lines of self help or heavily religious. I am so glad I was lead back to this book. The identity conversation in this book help me to uncover so uncomfortable truths about my life. This was so on time for my current season of life.

Inspiring!

In the face of unfamiliar horizons ... an opportunity for self-discovery and growth arises. Recounting inspired experiences—challenging at the outset—Zim reminds us that there is a reason for every season. Pause and praise, reflection and devotion, courage and conviction, can lead us to 'bloom where God planted us, if we dare.' ... an inspiring book!

Quick, easy but powerful

Perfect insight into Zim’s personal life and story with Travel Noire and how she dealt with it all. More importantly it helps you apply her life lessons to yourself! Chapter 2 is by far my favourite! It’s the longest chapter but the most powerful and potent (based on my current life position).

Lots of quotables and captions as the young ones would say. This audiobook is one I’ll be listening to again and again as the messages are so applicable

Encouraging & refreshing

I loved that this book didn't feel like hype. It wasn't 10 steps to bloom. It was about the raw truth about bloom with a fresh perspective that blessed me.
