I had this book for years and was too scared to read it. When I finally did I wondered what on earth I had been afraid of! It was so enormously helpful and I have since done a Reignite weekend with Jody Day the author, which was amazing. I have finally found my tribe through her online Gateway Women community and it is just so amazing to have a wonderful support network for living though the grief of coming to terms with childlessness. I simply cannot recommend this book any more highly. Please please please read it, it will absolutely change your life for the better.
I thought that I had done pretty well working through the grief of my childlessness until I read this book and discovered that I had actually become abit stuck in my grief. The gift of this book for me was that it helped me to get moving again and for the first time in too long be excited about the future. Jody is an amazing communicator and has a natural ability to help others balance "being real about things" with self compassion. Her book is a practical guide that I'm sure would be beneficial to any woman no matter where is on her path without children. It is a powerful tool that will challenge you and nuture you at the same time. I will be forever grateful to Jody for her courage to create this book and the gift that it has been to me.
Found this a very helpful book, which accepted the need to grieve while providing practical ideas on moving forward. I loved that it removed the expectation that if you don't have children you should be doing something world changing
