Finding Joy in the Empty Nest Discover Purpose and Passion in the Next Phase of Life Join best-selling author and President of Home Word, Jim Burns, and Charlotte as they talk about JOY! 

Sometimes, in the empty nesting years, you need to look for joy to find it, as well as purpose and passion. 

Jim and Charlotte will discuss some treasures from his latest book: Finding Joy in the Empty Nest, Discover Purpose and Passion in the Next Phase of Life. Whether you've been looking forward to it, or dreading it, the experience of coming home to the empty nest brings with it a well of emotions, realizations and one gigantic, all-consuming thought: Now what? As an empty nester, the options before you are practically limitless -a fact that can be as exciting as it is terrifying. In his new book, Jim Burns combines his personal experiences with extensive research, interviews with other empty nesters and his professional work as a family educator to help you navigate your new life as an empty nester and find JOY in the opportunities for life-change before you. 

In this conversation, Jim and Charlotte will encourage you to lean in to the source of all joy, Jesus Christ. 

They will encourage you to pursue a few fresh starts, to get to know and re-invent yourself and life and thrive beyond this new stage.                                  Jim offers practical advice and timeless principles, including how to: 

* change the relationship you once had with your children - for the better, 

* face big issues (like aging parents, finances and kids returning home) with confidence, 

* rekindle your fire and purpose to live with passion day by day. 

Charlotte and Jim agree...these next years offer countless blessings and wonderful opportunities for you to seize and offer joy.                                          Thanks for listening and sharing time with us! Scriptures about JOY: James 1:2 - "When troubles come, of any kind, consider it an opportunity for great joy." Gal. 5:22 - "But the Holy Spirit produces joy." Phil. 4:4 - "Always be full of joy in the Lord..." Psalms 126:5 - "Those who plant in tears will harvest shouts of joy!" Romans 15:13 - "I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in Him.
