Desperate
Hope For the Mom Who Needs to Breathe

I am so excited about this book! 
It really is like coming up for air when you've been under the surface of deep waters for too long. 

It's like having a Godly mentor sitting at my kitchen table helping me see a different perspective of life in motherhood. A desirable perspective of life that I would have never seen if it weren't for Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson being willing to sit down and be transparent about their lives and struggles in the early stages of their growing families. 

For me, as a momma of four little ones, and for most women as well I believe, sometimes we just need to realize there is an easier way than doing it all by ourselves -- we don't have to face womanhood or mommyhood alone! 

I am so grateful for their perspectives, ideas and wisdom found within these pages. 

I am forever changed. 
I can breathe. :)

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.
