Finding Joy

Welcome, thank you for taking time to browse.

After writing almost 200 blogs over 7 years I realised how much support there was here & how hard it was for readers to find what they most needed.

I’ve therefore created a number of pages where you can find blogs about different topics.

You can dig deeper under the ‘search blogs’ menu option.

Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness

When you first read the title of my book Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness: Inspiring Stories to Guide You to a Fulfilling Life, you might have been surprised to see the words ‘joy’ and ‘childlessness’ in the same sentence.

I confess they were a bit of a surprise for me too. For many years I would have never imagined that I could find joy again.

Yet here I am, living a very fulfilling and joyful life.

And it’s not just me. Many other women have been where you are & have also found joy.

I’ve learned many things along the way & the most important is there are as many different routes into this place we call childless as there are routes out.

Everyone’s path is different, so what worked for me won’t necessarily help you.

So how do you find your path?

A great way to start is to read the blogs I’ve written about finding joy. In them you’ll find ideas & inspiration of how to make a start.

There’s more inspiration in my book, Finding Joy. In it, you’ll read stories of 19 other women, who are just like you and who have also found joy. You’ll also read what we did and you’ll learn how you can do it too.

Please never doubt that you can find joy again.
