Navigating the Empty Nest: Embracing Change and Rediscovering Self with Writer Laura Bray

Join Laura as she navigates the challenges of an empty nest and figuring out who she is when she isn’t mothering full-time.

Laura never thought she wanted to have children, but a surprise pregnancy at age 35 changed all
that. She has spent the past 18 years of her daughter’s life documenting her motherhood journey
in her writing.
As an older mother, Laura and her daughter went through puberty and menopause at the same
time (her poor husband!) and now they are facing the biggest change of all-her daughter moving
out to go to college.

Now, as her daughter prepares to leave for college, Laura finds herself on the brink of a new chapter—one where her identity and purpose will shift as she explores life without full-time mothering.

Through this virtual series, Laura generously shares her personal journey with the Modern Prairie community, aiming to offer solace, inspiration, and guidance to mothers who find themselves in the same stage of motherhood. Together, we will explore the intricacies of the empty nest phase, the emotions that arise, and the rediscovery of self that accompanies this transformative period.

Through heartfelt conversations, and interactive sessions, we will delve into themes such as redefining identity, pursuing personal passions, nurturing relationships, and embracing newfound freedom. Laura’s candid storytelling will resonate with mothers navigating the same uncharted territory, fostering a sense of camaraderie and support.

Whether you are preparing for the empty nest, currently experiencing it, or curious about what lies ahead, this virtual series provides a nurturing space to connect, learn, and grow together. Join us as we celebrate the transformative power of motherhood and embrace the exciting possibilities that lie beyond the nest.

Spaces are limited, so grab a spot while you can.

Session will be hosted via Zoom.  Links will be shared upon registration confirmation.

When Laura K. Bray was a little girl, she wanted to drive a Trans Am and be a hairdresser. As an adult, she drives a Subaru and writes stories. Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and their daughter. She writes personal essays about motherhood, fictional cozy, romances with late-midlife heroines, and slightly dark short stories. When she isn’t writing, you can find her reading, baking, and watching Nancy Meyers movies.
