Wow, tears fell as I drank in the support and validation provided by this book. It was like they were reading my mind and speaking it back…understanding why it’s hard — even when you’ve launched your children well.
Ambivalence…Things are good and not so good at the same time. That about sums up the empty nest. Feelings are feelings, not good or bad…it’s how we act on those feelings.
When the empty nest hit me, I searched for a meaningful, faith-based resource and found none. This book fills that gap big-time!
The anecdotes included are sensitive, and pertinent. I am certainly going to be suggesting this for my friends who read, and am ordering a copy for my sister, who is about to enter the empty nest phase. High marks for this offering.
Susan Karsten here…I am the writer of this blog. I often review books, but I also write them. My first published work will be releasing on 7-7-17 (a month away). My book, A Match for Melissa, is historical fiction, set in the Regency period (early-1800s England) and written from a Christian perspective. I hope you will consider taking a look at it, and perhaps reading it. See below.
