thelatebloomercenter.com – Helping Midlifers Thrive
Welcome to thelatebloomercenter.com
My name is Chisomeje Odimba; Chisom for short. I am a Sociologist by training, a caterer, baker and writer by vocation and a teacher by calling.
My Story So Far…
I am 46 and counting and single. I thought I’d be married by now. Scratch that. I thought my last child would be getting ready for college by now but here I am still single! I thought I’d be a successful minister or at the top of a successful career ladder. I thought I’d have my retirement locked down. I thought…, I thought…, I thought! Phew!
Okay, I’m not here to moan. That’s just life. Stuff happens. Different strokes for different folks.
Personally, I am not crazy distraught about not being married or a mother yet. However society constantly transfers agitation on status to me that it’s a blur between where my genuine frustration stops and theirs starts.
Concerning career and ministry, there are times when I feel the frustration creep in. So I’ve got to get some method out of this madness, some rhythm to this rhyme and some message out of this mess.
I’ve been to the mountains and through the valleys and through it all have received comfort from God.
So according to 2nd Corinthians 1:4, I endeavor to comfort others with the comfort that I have received from God.
Reason For thelatebloomercenter.com
This blog is not a pity party avenue. We don’t do sob stories here. Neither do we engage in gender bashing… or any kind of bashing at all!
I’m here for all my fellow late bloomers out there. I still believe, after all, I am a believer.
With the increasing pressure to compromise and swipe left, I still stay true to the Word of God. So whatever we might discuss here, we will be real. We will be honest. But we will always come back to what does God have to say about that. Is that okay? (Well, even if it isn’t okay with you, sorry but it’s my blog, so my rules!)
Target audience and Focus
This is a community of likeminded Christians. People who have crossed over the midlife threshold or are close it.
The primary purpose of this blog is to bring our focus back to God in whatever circumstances we find ourselves.
To allow us to dream again; get a second wind and soar again!
Would it be “life begins at 40” or “A fool at 40 is a fool forever? It’s your life! Your choice!
Whatever you make of it is what it would be. But we are here to help you; to encourage you and to show you through God’s word that it’s possible!

I’ll be posting new content to the site bi-weekly.
Although I am the host of this site, I’ll have guest posts, interviews and other external resources for you my dear readers.
We also welcome feedback and comments because as I mentioned earlier, we are a community.
Remember that the bible says that as iron sharpens iron so a man sharpens another. So we hope you’ll make out time to drop comments or feedback and also ask questions.
Once again, welcome and fasten your seat belt for a journey into discovering a world of possibilities.
