They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit. Jeremiah 17:8 

Flourish. It’s what we all want to do. 


We may use other words like, SUCCESS, PROSPER, INFLUENCE, LEAD, MOVE, LOVE and LIVE. Whatever the word we choose, the meaning is clear. We all want to share the fruits of our harvest with the world around us. To be a witness through fragrant and abundant living, that there is beauty and bounty to be celebrated. 

The desire to flourish comes from deep within every created being. Because we have the longing to bring forth what lies within us, we look for ways to efficiently break open our own potential. We try poking and prodding our seed of greatness with books on time-management, goal-setting and get-it-done philosophy. Which ultimately adds to the already overwhelming pressure to produce. 

These products have their place in perpetuating the germination process but only a very small part. When we study Mother Nature, we see that most of what coaxes life from the seed is nourishment. Being wholly surrounded by soil and saturated with water, the germ of life is “hugged” from it’s tiny home.

FLOURISH is the celebration of life breaking out.
