Charles L. Blanchard’s The Seeds of Self-Destruction or Success: A Story of Triumph Over Adversity

Charles L. Blanchard’s latest book, The Seeds of Self-Destruction or Success, takes readers on a deeply personal journey through resilience, love, and overcoming adversity in the face of chronic illness.

In this book, Blanchard, diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), offers a unique perspective on navigating life’s challenges with the condition. Rather than succumbing to despair, he crafts a narrative that showcases the power of acceptance and love.

A central theme is Blanchard’s supportive partnership with Harry. Their relationship exemplifies the transformative power of love in overcoming life’s obstacles. The book highlights their experiences within the Old Catholic Church, a faith community that embraced them and their commitment to the priesthood.

Blanchard details his self-imposed rules for managing daily life with a compromised executive function. These pragmatic strategies, like the “SEE” (Stop, Evaluate, Ensure) and “SSS” (Stand, Stop, Start walking) rules, offer insights into his approach to navigating daily tasks.

The book also emphasizes the importance of seeking guidance from qualified medical professionals. Blanchard shares his experiences with doctors and therapists, highlighting the crucial role medical care plays in managing chronic conditions.

Blanchard believes that living in the moment through prayer, meditation, and reading is a cornerstone of living a fulfilling life. These practices foster the certainty, conviction, and courage that guide him through life’s uncertainties. The book explores the potential of spiritual and contemplative practices in finding strength and solace.

Moreover, unlike other memoirs, this inspirational story of Blanchard also presents the concept of ANGELs – Amazing Number of Gifts, Embracing Love. For him, these are the individuals who provided him unwavering support and uplifted him. From family and friends to religious figures and especially Harry, these ANGELs embody the essence of genuine care.

The narrative encourages readers to identify their own trusted ANGELs – the individuals who have their best interests at heart. Blanchard emphasizes the transformative power of these supportive relationships in overcoming life’s challenges.

“The Seeds of Self-Destruction or Success” aims to raise awareness about the challenges faced by individuals with chronic illness. By sharing his personal story, Blanchard hopes to inspire a broader conversation about love, faith, and the importance of supportive relationships.

This inspiring book is now available online at leading bookstores, including Amazon and, Kindle Barnes & Noble.
