About this item
Book SynopsisAre you feeling adrift as you face transitions in a new season of life? It's time to start dreaming again . . .
Have you made personal sacrifices to pursue something--a career, a relationship, or a quality family life--and now it has changed, gone away, or just doesn't feel as rewarding anymore? If so, you may be looking for a new source of energy, significance, and joy in the next season. Shayne Moore, a former client of the Halftime Institute, and Carolyn Castleberry Hux, a coach with Halftime, which was founded by the author of the bestselling book Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, know from experience what it means and how difficult it can be to navigate this territory. In Women at Halftime, Shayne and Carolyn offer you the building blocks for getting unstuck and finding renewed joy and purpose.
Shayne and Carolyn set out to ask you key questions like:
- Whose voice in your head still silences your voice and your dreams--and what can you do about it?
- How can you evaluate the activities, people, and places in which you invest your time?
- Where do you need to embrace freedom from limiting beliefs, fears, perfectionism, or other obstacles holding you back?
From the Back CoverDo you feel like the best part of your life is already over? If so, you are not alone . . . and there is hope.
If the role that was most significant in your first half of life no longer fits, or even exists, chances are you're in halftime--a disorienting midlife transition no one prepared you for. Perhaps the children you raised have left the nest or soon will. The career or volunteer work that once gave you fulfillment no longer brings you joy. A foundational relationship that provided your sense of identity ended in divorce, death, or relational breakdown. Or it may be that you simply have a gnawing sense that something is missing in your life.
Whatever the road that led you here, you're feeling stuck. The daunting question is, "What now?" Carolyn Castleberry Hux, a coach with the Halftime Institute, and Shayne Moore, a former Halftime client, know from experience what it means to navigate this territory and how difficult it can be. In Women at Halftime, Shayne and Carolyn take you through a proven process for getting unstuck. Throughout this journey you will learn how to
- excavate your past, pay attention to your present, and begin imagining your future;
- let go of whatever keeps you from fulfilling the dreams you have for your life or from dreaming at all;
- identify what God has uniquely prepared you for and what he is calling you to do; and
- persevere through setbacks and confusion as you pursue a second half of joy and purpose.
In this spirited manual, Moore (Ending Human Trafficking) and Castleberry Hux (Divine Treasure) provide guidance on how women can navigate the second half of their lives. The authors met when executive coach Castleberry Hux took on Moore as a client at the Halftime Institute, which offers consulting services for middle-aged people. Sharing client stories and anecdotes from their own midlife transitions, the authors outline a "four-stage process to help you get unstuck and moving toward your dreams." It encourages readers to "get clear" about their values, overcome fear of failure, find one's place in God's plan, and take action. Moore laments how her "limiting belief" that she was a fraud led her to prematurely leave an exclusive seminar, and she urges readers to "process your defeatist thoughts" by talking them through with a friend. The exercises are easy to follow and include enumerating "five things you are most grateful for" and pondering what role God played in them to help illuminate one's priorities. However, the client stories' focus on wealthy women can make the benefits of this program feel out of reach, as is the case with a client whose background as a former bank manager prepared her to establish a charitable foundation as her midlife pivot. Still, this has some worthwhile recommendations for how women can find purpose in middle age.--Publishers Weekly
