Dare To Bloom: Trusting God Through Painful Endings and New Beginnings
In the beautiful four-color book Dare to Bloom, Forbes 30 under 30 awardee, scientist, entrepreneur, and international speaker Zim Flores challenges us to reclaim who we really are, find success with each new beginning, and learn to joyfully participate in these remarkable, unpredictable lives we lead.
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

Dare to Bloom is a powerful gift for readers 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:
- An elegant ribbon marker and a gorgeous presentation page for easy gifting

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.
