Overview

You're done . . . but you're not finished! And one more thing. You're not alone. Feeling unsure? Scared? Expectant? Maybe even giddy? Is your nest empty-except for a bundle of mixed emotions?

Or thrilled? What's next?

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

The authors, both active in Christian endeavors, have assembled a handbook encouraging women to see the "empty nest" period of their lives as an opportunity to spend more time with girlfriends or find a new purpose in life, even while dealing with the challenges of menopause, aging parents, and possibly a failed marriage. They address and provide coping tools for the usual concerns relating to career and extended family but hone in on the need for forgiveness in reestablishing ties with parents and siblings. Empty nesters, especially those with a Christian background, will find this book helpful. Recommended for libraries with a large Christian population.
