A few words about "Bloom Where You're Planted" from Mary's readers.
Our women’s Bible study group has thoroughly enjoyed studying...‘Bloom Where You’re Planted.’ We find so much to discuss in just one short chapter. Every chapter she writes is scripture based. We can really relate to Mary’s stories in our day to day lives and our walk with Jesus Christ. So thought provoking and easy to understand as it relates with her daily living and her walk with Jesus. Denys Jones, member of Old Stone Presbyterian Church Bible Study
Mary Rodman’s book ‘Bloom Where You’re Planted,’ really hit home to me. Every page touched my heart. She is home spun and down to earth. Reading her devotional book was a delight to my heart and soul.

Easy to understand. I’m only a third of the way through the book as I am reading one devotional a day. The stories are heartwarming. Mary writes in a way that is friendly and very thought provoking. Real life stuff, easy to understand. This book will stir your heart to have a deeper relationship with God. Totally enjoying it!! Amazon Customer, December 5, 2016
Like sitting down with a mentor to chat. Sometimes the Lord blesses us with deep Christian friends whom we can talk to regularly and help us along the way. During other seasons it feels like no one around us is like-minded. Bloom Where You’re Planted is like sitting down with a mentor and friend as you read… I do recommend this title as the content is biblical and encouraging as well as being more than just surface faith.
