#WalkItOut Podcast 071: Jill Savage
What comes to mind when you hear the words “empty nest”? I have to admit, John and I are at a stage where we still have little kids at home, we have teenagers, we have young adult, and adult kids. I’m like “empty nest”? Yes, please! I just want to sleep in! But I’ve been there before. I know how hard it is to launch kids. Empty nest means transition. Empty nest can mean loss. It can mean so many things. Sometimes we worry about losing the relationship we have with our kids. During this time I have with my kids, I don’t want to have to think about the challenges that comes with an empty nest. There are challenges with an empty nest, and sometimes it’s with our minds and our hearts.
Today guest, Jill Savage, and I talk about all these things on toady’s episode. I know you are just going to love Jill. She has been doing Hearts at Home conferences for many years. She has written so many great books, and I’m so excited that she has written Empty Nest, Full Life. She shares the insights she has on an empty nest. We’re going to talk about good things, exciting things, but also tough things — like what do you do when your kid makes bad choices? Or how do you handle marriage struggles after your kids are grown?
Have fun getting to hear this conversation with Jill Savage. I know you will be blessed! You can listen above or on iTunes! I’d love it if you share this with your friends!

This Week’s Walk It Out Scripture
There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth:
A right time for birth and another for death,
A right time to plant and another to reap,
A right time to kill and another to heal,
A right time to destroy and another to construct,
A right time to cry and another to laugh,
A right time to lament and another to cheer,
A right time to make love and another to abstain,
A right time to embrace and another to part,
A right time to search and another to count your losses,
A right time to hold on and another to let go,
A right time to rip out and another to mend,
A right time to shut up and another to speak up,
A right time to love and another to hate,
A right time to wage war and another to make peace.
