The Mary Marantz Show

Jun 29, 2021

Are you hurting, seemingly lost, or feeling broken? Perhaps you long for the hope that an opportunity to start over provides.

If you can relate, then today’s episode is going to speak straight to your heart as you learn to discover opportunity even when circumstances and endings are hard and uncertain!

Today, Mary is joined by a Forbes “30 under 30”, named leader by Oprah Winfrey, podcast host, and author- Zim Flores! Mary and Zim go deep today exploring Zim’s book, “Dare to Bloom: Trusting God Through Painful Endings and New Beginnings.”

The daughter of Nigerian immigrants, Zim was the founder of Travel Noire, a hugely successful website and social media presence aimed at serving Black travelers. She sold the business in 2017 to pursue God and her book is about the power of starting over, blooming where you are, and stepping into exactly who you are meant to be.

On today’s episode, Mary and Zim discuss that either by choice or by circumstance, we will all encounter new beginnings; the tension between science and faith and the ways that one actually informs the other; the power of asking for transformation over deliverance; and, the difference between an all-weather purpose and a seasonal purpose.

After listening, you will walk away with practical and hard-won truths about:

  • How to reclaim your true identity and surrender your desired outcomes to God
  • Ways to navigate new beginnings with hope for whatever is next in your life
  • How to joyfully participate in your own story even when you don't know what the future holds

If you are ready to be challenged to be both vulnerable and resilient in new seasons of your life while boldly positioning yourself for whatever God has next, you will not want to miss this incredible episode!
