This author knows firsthand about the struggles of the empty nest. Nygren tells her story and urges counselors and churches to recognize the many issues that impact this stage of life. Her advocacy is based on the fact that people experiencing the empty nest might not realize the role it plays in their struggles and not ask for help. She offers a biblical framing for this transitional phase with a perspective that is realistic and positive.
