When the kids are gone, you can discover a richer, deeper, and more fulfilling life than you ever imagined!
Whether you've been looking forward to it or dreading it, the experience of coming home to an empty nest brings with it a well of emotions, realizations, and one gigantic, all-consuming thought: Now what? In Finding Joy in the Empty Nest, Jim Burns combines his personal experiences with his expertise as a family educator to help you navigate your new life as an empty nester and find joy in this new season of life.
Rather than offering shallow suggestions of hobbies you should take up, Burns encourages you to actively pursue a fresh start, reinvent yourself, and thrive. Backed by extensive research and filled with interviews with fellow empty nesters, this book equips you with practical advice and timeless principles, teaching you how to:
- Change the relationship you once had with your children for the better
- Face big issues--including aging parents, finances, and kids returning home--with confidence
- Rekindle your fire and purpose to live with passion day by day
Amid Burns' wealth of know-how, you'll uncover what may be the most important takeaway of all: the best is yet to come.
Praise for Finding Joy in the Empty Nest:
