What do you do when you feel stuck and your life takes a detour from your grand plan? Claire Swinarski, founder of The Catholic Feminist podcast, says that even if your life is not where you wanted it to be or you are in a time of transition or discomfort, God has planted you right where you are for a reason. In Full Bloom inspires you to see God’s grace at work and discover for yourself the grit and practical strategies to thrive no matter what life has thrown your way. When your dreams don’t match reality, you have several choices: You can wait for your situation to change. You can leap blindly from change to change until something sticks. Or you can do as Claire Swinarski suggests—thrive. In Full Bloom explores strategies for thriving and experiencing God’s grace even when you’re not exactly living the dream. Searching for a career post-college? Longing for excitement while feeling trapped someplace miserable? Single and dreaming of a family? Enjoying a fantastic job in a great city but grappling with feelings of loneliness? No matter where you are, Swinarski offers a game plan for pinpointing what’s not working in your life, making strategic changes, and developing habits that will sustain you no matter what challenges the future holds. Swinarski blends vulnerability, hard-hitting wake-up calls, and practical wisdom as she shares her own struggles, inspires with stories from TheCatholic Feminist podcast community, and offers “soul-care” exercises to help you discover the faith and grit to grow into the life you’ve always hoped for.

An 'Odyssey' is described as any extended journey. My life can best be described as a series of odysseys, beginning in the colonial period, in Jamaica, a tiny island in the Carribean Sea, extending to Great Britain and currently settling in the United States of America. For these journeys, my role evolved from that of a frightened, naive youngster, to an independent young adult, an abused wife, a mother, a nurse, and a divorcee to that of a senior citizen living in Athens, Georgia. I am now 'at full bloom', remembering all the stages and absolutely enjoying this stage with the utmost contentment.

We hold close to our hearts many things, for some it is our religious practice, I encourage all to practice with such an intensity and focus that one day they will no longer have to practice. Christian churches teach the ultimate reward of heaven—where one spends eternity in the presence of God—can be procured by righteous actions preformed while living here on earth. It’s the concept of being a good boy or girl, and you will be rewarded in the sweet bye and bye. Yet in the Bible, Christ speaks of the kingdom of God being at hand and that the presence of God is within. If these words are true, why are we so discombobulated by the process of life itself? Author Theo Gene Thibodeaux Jr. sought to answer that question and to experience God directly in his lifetime. In Full Bloom is the story of his journey to find the answer in an orthodox system, namely the Catholic Church, the church he was born into. Each chapter of this often-humorous and strikingly personal story shares glimpses into the author’s rediscovery of himself. Learn how after years of study, fasting, church attendance, and prayer, Thibodeaux was rewarded with Christ consciousness, a state of absolute rest, where there are no thoughts and one is able to act without being influenced by action. It is a life in full bloom.

As they enjoy Maple Valley’s Christmas festivities, Mel remembers how close they once were. But can they ever have a future? Lauren finds herself falling for Mel and suspects the feelings are mutual.

Living life in full bloom means living with hope and purpose, with imagination and vision—in a way that honors the Earth, the spirit, and one another. Elizabeth Murray encourages and nurtures you to explore four personality attributes (Gardener, Artist, Lover, and Spirit Weaver), or pathways, that create a framework for practicing mindfulness, unleashing potential, and reviving communities. As Gardeners, you will learn to observe and grow; as Artists, you'll discover creativity and new possibilities; as Lovers, you'll lead with the heart and commit to things they're passionate about; and as Spirit Weavers, you'll create rituals and express gratitude. Accented with Murray's exquisite nouveau vintage photography, 30 guided activities for each pathway help you take small but powerful action steps to define the purposes of busy lives and remember who you really are. Murray also includes profiles of "bloomers," inspiring individuals who exemplify this life and are in partnership with their local communities and international organizations focused on people and causes. A step-by-step exercise on life mapping helps to identify passions, skills, and community needs and offers specific actions to serve the greater good.
