Is the empty nest on the horizon?

Are you trying to figure out how to let go or figure out who you are now that the kids are grown?

If so, you’re in the right place!

Welcome to a new season of the Better Together Podcast where we find the hope, the help, as well as practical next steps so that we can all get better together!

To kick of off our new season, I’m talking with my friend, Jill Savage about the empty nest season of life. This year, my last child moved out of the house and after nearly 27 years of raising children, I loved this conversation with my wise and fun friend!

Jill is the author of the new book, Empty Nest, Full Life: Discovering God’s Best for Your Next (August 2019). In today’s episode, Jill shares the follow with us:

  • Wisdom:  Jill tells us what empty nest moms need to let go of and what to hold on to.
  • Encouragement: Are you struggling with tough situations and feeling discouraged? Jill talks about how she navigates parenting adult children dealing with mental illness, homosexuality, and children far from God.
  • Finally, Jill shares relationship-saving practical ideas to keep your relationship with your kids even when they’re making decisions you don’t agree with.
  • GET AWAY! Listen for details on Jill’s Empty Nest Mom Retreat on October 25-27, 2019 at the Chaira Retreat Center. You totally want to check more details out at
