I’m in bloom.

Hello beautiful world!

I’m the founder of B is for bloom and it’s so great to finally be here!

The reason I wanted to create this space was to help people make the most of this life. Recently, I’ve been on a bit of a rickety journey; my whole life has changed completely for the better. I was struggling with who I was, where I belonged, what I was destined to do… sound familiar?

My sister pointed me in the direction of ‘The Purpose Driven Life’ written by Pastor Rick Warren and  it was like a lightbulb went off in my head. I didn’t even ask for God’s help but there He was – before me, always. Of the thousands of words within this book there was one line which particularly stuck with me…’Years ago people wore a popular button with the letters PBPGINFWMY. It stood for ‘Please be patient, God is not finished with me yet!'” You see, even though we are Christians, we are not perfect. How many people have felt judged once they’ve expressed their faith? We are expected to do everything right – but we all know we really don’t! We are human after all!

I wanted to share my experience with you guys, to make sure everyone knows that yeah it’s absolutely okay to need lots of TLC. Whether you have no faith, a little faith or a lot of faith – you can find your place here.

So bare with me (PBPGINFWMY)- I’ve still got a lot to learn – but God ain’t finished with me yet! And he’s not finished with you either.

There’s SO much good stuff to come and this is a journey for all of us to share. We can guide each other, help each other and love each other.

I’m growing in my faith each and every precious day. God teaches me new things on a daily basis and constantly trips me up on my mistakes. Yeah – do you know the feeling?

B is for bloom is an organisation that yes wants to change the world but in the right way – no speeding through cheating – we want to take each person in this world and help them bloom individually so that soon we can change the world, one person at a time. We can all soon one day be on the same page… hopefully it’s 1 Corinthians 13:13 ‘And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.’ Because I believe the only way we’re going to change this world is through that one little word. L O V E. Love for God, love for the world (the people and the environment), and love for ourselves.

I’m learning more and more about the world as I get older and I feel the pain of others burning in my heart. We want to start a revolution – to get everyone in bloom!

We have three focuses which are significant to this revolution. First and foremost, I believe our faith will pretty much get us through anything and everything! Second, we need to start caring and sharing about the world; it’s brokenness and focusing on how we can fix it. And thirdly, we all need to feel good in ourselves before we can help others to feel good, so let’s look at ourselves as individuals and our personal lives!

That’s kind of the journey I’m following at the moment and so far it’s been the best adventure of my life..

I’m in bloom and it feels amazing!

I really hope you will start your own journey with us!

And guys if you share our passion for these things and would like to join our team, visit our volunteer page and we’ll go from there…

Let’s walk in grace together… ♡
