Are you feeling adrift as you face transitions in a new season of life? It’s time to start dreaming again . . .

Have you made personal sacrifices to pursue something—a career, a relationship, or a quality family life—and now it has changed, gone away, or just doesn’t feel as rewarding anymore? If so, you may be looking for a new source of energy, significance, and joy in the next season. Shayne Moore, a former client of the Halftime Institute, and Carolyn Castleberry Hux, a coach with Halftime, which was founded by the author of the bestselling book Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, know from experience what it means and how difficult it can be to navigate this territory. In Women at Halftime, Shayne and Carolyn offer you the building blocks for getting unstuck and finding renewed joy and purpose.

Shayne and Carolyn set out to ask you key questions like:
  • Whose voice in your head still silences your voice and your dreams—and what can you do about it?
  • How can you evaluate the activities, people, and places in which you invest your time?
  • Where do you need to embrace freedom from limiting beliefs, fears, perfectionism, or other obstacles holding you back?
Know you are not alone. Transformative growth takes time, but the end result is worth it.

Sharla Langston

This beautiful book is long overdue. Yet the wait has resulted in a rich treasure of practical, prayerful, and purposeful tools and stories that could not have sparkled years ago. May we all ponder anew what God has for us next.

Laura Contrereas Rowe

Women at Halftime is incredible. It was like the book was written for me. The three words pray, act, and adjust—along with forgive—are the most powerful words in the book. Whoever reads this book up will not be disappointed!

Linda Reeb

I have been on my Halftime journey for over a decade. This current season has felt a bit dry—I drank this book in. It was just what the doctor ordered!

Margaret Ereneta

As my children started to leave the nest, I soon realized a whole new world of significance was awaiting me outside the home. Halftime Institute was a key help to get me started on a new calling and career of significance. Women at Halftime is the perfect guide for women pursuing their halftime calling.

Ashley Noronha

Women at Halftime shows how to make the next season of life even more purposeful by boldly giving women the courage to dream, providing a systematic way to rediscover our gifts and identify our values, and granting the freedom to dig up the buried treasures of our true selves. The authors share an easy-to-follow method of emotional and spiritual management, while helping us always keep our focus on Scripture and our eyes fixed on Christ.

Wende Gaikema

Women at Halftime offers an inspiring road map for women at midlife who want more—more purpose and impact—but aren’t sure how to get there. The book offers a proven process intermixed with encouraging stories and practical steps. What an invitation to purpose and joy for the next season of life!

Diane Spicer

Your best is yet to come! Don’t believe me? Read Women at Halftime and you’ll learn, just as I did several years ago, that God has so much more for you—things beyond your wildest imagination! Don’t resign or retire . . . refire! This book will help you become all God created YOU to be.

Sandra L. Frazier

Once when I was challenged to visualize an image that depicted my purpose, I imagined a suspension swinging bridge over a river gorge. The choice is yours: Stay where you are, known and safe, or dare to step toward a new future. Women at Halftime is the suspension bridge for all who read it.

Julienne Loh

I started as a Fellow of the Halftime Institute in August 2020—the year the world experienced a lockdown due to COVID and the year I turned fifty. As a senior corporate executive who travels more than 50 percent of each year for a global multinational, I found 2020 to be almost like a divine pause year, giving me time to reflect, What is my calling for Life 2.0? In fact, being the only Asian and woman among my esteemed colleagues of American men, I asked HTI, Where are all the women attendees at Halftime? So I am super glad this book is finally published for women who are entering halftime. Ladies, the best part of your life is yet to be.

Ellen Voie

As a former participant of the Halftime Institute, I was pleasantly surprised to see how the Women of Halftime challenged me to continue my journey to relevance. The authors weave personal stories with tools for introspection and challenging exercises to prompt further growth. Whether you have determined your relevance or are still searching your soul, this book will help you come to conclusions about yourself and your future.
