Bold Blooming is a Catholic podcast about how to be a lay person that builds up the Church.
It’s about boldly embracing who you are, where you are, and what you’ve been given.
It’s about opening yourself up to being used by the Holy Spirit in every part of your life.
A little bit inspirational but mostly practical, Bold Blooming will challenge you to get out of God’s way, get out of your own way, and be like the good stewards in the parable of the talents - using God’s gifts with intention to grow His kingdom, even if you feel like you have nothing to give. (I can 100% promise you - you absolutely have gifts to give.)
