What is {relatively} empty nesting?

We are so glad you are visiting. We are blessed to be a part of the (in)couragers community.

Here at {relatively} empty nesting, we want to encourage each other as we head into the empty nesting stage of life. Some of us have kids ready to fly on their own. Some of us have had kids fly back home. Some of us have kids who are struggling on their own–emotionally, physically, spiritually.

Just how do we get through this stage of life? By sharing, working together, and providing words of wisdom.

We plan to stay in touch as much as you would like. We will have several methods to keep in contact. Pick your favorite, or use them all. But first, sign-up to receive this blog in your in-box, then connect with which ever form you would like:



Google+     we will use this to do Google Hangouts at least once a month

Post in the comments the things you are struggling the most with, what would you like us to discuss, how can we encourage you right now?

Looking forward to all God has in store for us as {relatively} empty nesters.

For our personal stories on starting this (in)couragers group, go to Teresa’s Thoughts for Today and Marina’s Kitchen Table.

  1. Hello Everyone!! If you are “ONLY” on the blog, you might want to check out the discussion of introductions going on at FACEBOOK (see link in the post above, we have a group page there!). If you are NOT on FB, please let us know! We want to be able to connect with each of you as much as possible, no matter what forum we are in.
    SOON, there will be a new post HERE for the blog – but until there – if you are not able to join us on FB, please leave your intro here at the blog comments. 🙂 now is a good time to start!! 🙂

    I’m Marina (mentioned above, as a co-leader with Teresa) and I live in NW Arkansas (for about a month now, just moved into our house 1 1/2 wks ago!) and have been married to Mark for 28 years. We have 3 kids, 2 sons-in-law, 1 almost daughter-in-law (June wedding), and expecting, 6th grandchild in Dec.

    I’m a Parent of a Missionary (now home, but another preparing to launch – with 5 of those grandkids!!), had a prodigal child, have a husband that travels, and love crafting, hand quilting, photography and cooking and gardening. It all seems like THERAPY to me, not work. 🙂

    I’m happy to meet all of YOU!! 🙂
