About the Book

Book: Vibrant

Author: Carol McLeod

Genre: Christian Living, Women’s Interest

Release Date: November 3, 2020

Have you ever met someone who possessed a quiet radiance so rich, so dynamic, that you ached for more, someone whose presence is so compelling you feel refreshed by a single conversation with them? If you know someone like this, you anticipate your times together. You realize their joy is contagious, their peace is deep, and their compassion is engaging.

Such people are “vibrant.” Regardless of their socioeconomic status, their education, their marital status, or their health, these people are determined to live joyfully, seeing each obstacle as an opportunity for growth. The vibrant individual’s persona is attached to their convictions rather than their circumstances.

Author Carol Burton McLeod believes everyone can choose to be Vibrant: Developing a Deep and Abiding Joy for All Seasons—and such a life begins by emulating Jesus. His life was filled with challenges and yet people were drawn to Him. Every character trait that we are called to embrace, every action of kindness or love, and each word of compassion or tenderness is a telling reflection of Christ within us. We are called to be a vibrant show-and-tell of what God is able to accomplish through one ordinary person.

Carol explores what it means to follow Jesus in a world filled with disappointment, rejection, and discouragement. And she provides gentle encouragement and suggestions from Scripture to help us do just that.

Today, I’d like you to meet Jace’s wife, Simone. She’s a second grade teacher and also the youth pastor’s wife of a growing church in the community. They have been married for over a decade and have four children. She’s organized, responsible, and, by default, has to wear many hats, no matter how tired she becomes. When she lets herself relax, after all her chores are done and everything’s ready for the next day, she enjoys the ice cream runs as much as the rest of her family. Simone’s favorite ice cream is butter pecan, a little sophisticated, rich and creamy, just like her.

While Simone fell in love with Jace’s fun-loving side, after ten years of marriage, is she wishing he would choose to step up and take some of the weight off her shoulders?
