Product Description

You always dreamed of having a houseful of children, but who knew it would leave you feeling so stressed out? Offering encouragement from one mom "in the trenches" and an older mentor whose kids are grown, this compassionate resource will lift the spirits of any woman feeling isolated, frazzled, or depressed about the throes of parenting.

Noteworthy: This author is one of a special group of women who writes for (in)courage, the popular online friendship community. Every day they take turns pulling up a chair to share their stories of what Jesus looks like in their every day, gloriously ordinary, and often messy lives.

If you read the (in)courage blog online, then you'll be sure to enjoy this title.

Publisher's Description

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.

Also in Desperate:

  • 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
  • Q & A section with Sally where she answers readers questions

Endorsements

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.
--Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts

This book seeps wisdom and truth. I breathed a sigh of relief to know I'm not alone in my parenting struggles. As a reader I felt part of their friendship circle, and I found hope, answers and assurance within these pages. 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

Sarah Mae articulates the struggles that many have remained unspoken in all of us. She is courageous and breathtakingly honest while giving voice to the real challenges of motherhood and the frailty of a woman's soul. Sally Clarkson answers those anguished thoughts with sage, sound, gentle mentoring and the kind friendship of a woman who has walked the same path. Together, they offer today's desperate (or even simply soul-weary) mothers hope, encouragement, and a tangible roadmap for navigating the rough paths along motherhood's journey.
--Elizabeth Foss, author, Small Steps for Catholic Moms and Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home

Sarah's honest questions and Sally's seasoned advice, laced with biblical insight and hopeful encouragement, will enable mothers of all ages and stages to find strength amidst the struggles, calm with every climb and peace in every plunge.
--Karen Ehman, Proverbs 31 Ministries Director of Speakers, author of LET. IT. GO. How to Stop Running the Show & Start Walking in Faith
