A little about Chris…
In 2003, I dropped my youngest child off at college across town, and at the same time, my husband was offered a job across the country. Suddenly, I was a broken-hearted empty-nester.
I needed my kids so much, it hurt my insides. I was on the verge of becoming a “smother-mother,” calling my kids too often, checking in too much. I had a lot of “left-over-love” to give, but my kids didn’t need all of it anymore. How do normal people deal with the sadness of their empty nest?
Mentoring others gave me the perfect place for God to transform my “left-over-love” into “love-on-purpose!” My new connections with my young mom friends gave my adult kids the space they needed to flourish on their own. Which transformed me into the “cool mom” my own kids wanted to hang out with!
