Join me for this LIVE Virtual Workshop:
You worked hard at being a good mom,
Now it’s time to launch them and find your new rhythm!
I see you planning senior parties, thinking about
the beautiful summer ahead of you and this
adult/child you are sending out into the world.
Empty Nest sounds so…empty.
As you and your child prepare to take that next step, will you be stress-filled or joy-filled?
What will you do with all that emotion and overwhelm at all the changes?
You knew this was coming, but that doesn’t mean you are ready!
You are not alone.
This is a season of growth, faith, and new things. You are negotiating uncertainty, reestablishing relationships with so many things and people, and looking at a new way to live forward. It is coming whether you do it intentionally or just let it play out.
I’m here, and I have a plan to encourage, equip and exhort you to step forward strong and confident, ready for the next thing!
I love Jesus, and I am a momma, a wife, and a relationship coach for Christian women. I am a former therapist who gets the hard stuff. I have been there and done that.
I remember praying:
It is hard to send your kids out into the world when you know the enemy of their souls has a plan for them.
The One who has been hearing those prayers is your hope.
Your job is to refocus and refine your faith as you lean in to trust the High King of Heaven with your precious child on a whole new level. You get to go deeper and know that He will protect and guide them when you aren’t able. You will begin to see a bigger picture as you watch this child for whom you prayed carve out their stories of His faithfulness.
AND, you get to look to Him to take the next steps toward becoming the woman you were created to be in this new season!
THIS IS WHY I CREATED THIS SPACE! I don’t want you to be overwhelmed, unsure about your next steps, or side-swiped by the emotions.
just the thing if you feel a little out of sorts about this change and what it means for you.
Letting Go Gracefully is designed to give you support, tools, and knowledge to manage this season with grace, awareness, and perspective.
Are you ready to give yourself the gift of awareness so you can enjoy time with your child and intentionally move forward with assurance for such a time as this!
Hannah’s prayer as she took her 3-year-old son to the temple and dedicated him to God for his life strikes a chord for anyone who has loved and nurtured a child. We look at the brokenness of the world, at the uncertainty of the day-to-day and our stomachs twist as we think about sending our babes out to make choices about how to live and honor the calling and purposes that God has assigned them before time.
You have the head knowledge and know that we are called to trust that God knows and loves our children even more than we do. They are His before they are ours, beloved, called, and kept.
Our job as mothers starts with very physical demands – no sleep, heartache when they have physical or emotional pain, intense joy as they walk, then run…
Next, there are more demands around our time– to teach, to give experience; to let them try new things, test the waters of navigating…
Finally, we come to the point where we are called to be intentional and dedicated to let go so they can become the people God has created them to be and we stand in the gap and pray.
This workshop is about you also understanding that you are still becoming the woman God created you to be as the relationship with your role as a mom shifts as you finish one season and prepare and find joy in the next!.
You will be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to set your focus on the
Giver of all good things.
I’ve been there. I am a momma of two wonderful adult children. Both of whom went out of state to school. I am a former therapist who has walked with other women through the hard things. I know things to share about transition, dreams, and fears with you. I know how to help you focus on God’s truth, not the thoughts that wake you up in the night.
When my husband and I dropped off our oldest, we cried the entire ride home. I was aware that things would be different, but I was unprepared for all the emotions and new ways of being a mother to her.
When our second child started his journey at a military college, and we knew we would not have contact for four weeks, I was more intentional about how I prepared my heart and how I prayed about the transition.
I would have loved to have had a workshop like this to give me the support and the skills to be intentional about this season.
THIS IS MY GIFT TO YOU!
This workshop helped me think about how I approached this season. I recognized I had this fairy-tale version of how this was going to look and it was not realistic… Thank you for pointing me up.
I felt like I was going to lose it- that there was something wrong with me because I was so irritated and frustrated when things didn’t work out when all I wanted was to help. This workshop taught me how to respond by asking “what’s the real thing happening here? Is this personal?” Game-changer Charlotte!
I feel freer. I can be sad and hold a curfew time. I can plan things and ask for what I need instead of worrying I am going to get an eye roll or an argument. Thank you Charlotte for real examples. I am grateful for permission to enjoy the moment and am excited to see what is next.
Warm, open, and caring. Charlotte works with you to meet your goals and be happier, healthier, and find the joy in life.
Charlotte’s vast expertise and knowledge, combined with her compassionate heart and her giftedness as an encourager and a teacher, inspired me to step into new arenas of personal and professional development – areas of development that have forever enriched my life. I am thankful beyond measure.
In each and every interaction I have with Charlotte, I experience feeling heard, uplifted, validated, encouraged, supported, valued, and engulfed by genuine concern for my well-being. She has helped me put concerns or challenges in perspective and also provided a new way for me to approach an issue, feeling more capable, competent, and confident. I find her to be non-judgmental, with an incredible capacity of wisdom and compassion. Charlotte is very skilled on a number of levels and I am so grateful to have someone such as her to guide and help me.
With sensitivity, considerable observational skill, and wisdom Charlotte helped me navigate one of the most extraordinary passages of my life. Her guidance helped me see the invaluable lessons before me that ultimately led to my growth, renewal, and peace. In that process, Charlotte’s joy, humor, warmth, and heart were tremendous assets.
