Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe

$ 14.99 $ 16.99

Desperate is for those who love their children to the depths of their souls but who have also curled up under their covers, fighting back tears, and begging God for help. It's for those who have ever wondered what happened to all their ideals for what having children would be like. For those who have ever felt like all the "experts" have clearly never had a child like theirs. For those who have prayed for a mentor. For those who ever felt lost and alone in motherhood.

In Desperate you will find the story of one young mother's honest account of the desperate feelings experienced in motherhood and one experienced mentor's realistic and gentle exhortations that were forged in the trenches of raising her own four children.

Whether you are a first time mom, or an experienced mom, Desperate will inspire you to be a part of the ultimate goal of the book, to be a part of the no-more-desperate-moms movement. 

Included in the Book:
  • QR codes and links at the end of each chapter that lead to videos with Sarah Mae and Sally talking about the chapter
  • Practical steps to take during the desperate times
  • Bible study and journal exercises in each chapter that will lead you to identify ways in which you can grow as a mom
  • Mentoring advice for real-life situations

I hold these pages, words of Sarah Mae's and Sally's, that are a gift to every mother, that welcome mothers everywhere out of hiding and loneliness and into a fellowship of sisters and mentors, that will make you feel not alone, that will make you feel that there is real God-given hope.

This book seeps wisdom and truth...I can't recommend this book enough! Read it alone or read it with friends...but read it!

-Tricia Goyer, best-selling author of 34 books, including Blue Like Play Dough: The Shape of Motherhood in the Grip of 
God

Powerful, captivating and gut-wrenchingly honest; if this superb book could get into the hands of every mom, our world
would drastically change, for the good! It's a new classic for a new generation.

-Kristen Habermehl, author & speaker, founder of Mom Nights

Sarah Mae represents so many women who long to be good mamas to their little ones, and Sally embodies the mentor so many of us wish we had. They have given us a gift with the words on these pages--a peek into their conversations about what it means to persevere through the tiring days of parenting small children, and a glimpse at what it's like on the other side.
