48-Hour Giveaway: Desperate: Hope For the Mom Who Needs to Breathe (50 Winners)


“I just can’t be a mother today.”

If you’ve ever whispered those words to God in quiet desperation, you are not alone. I and millions of other women across the globe have felt the same way.

Motherhood is hard. It’s monotonous. It’s exhausting. There are many days when you want to give up and throw in the towel — if only you could find a clean one!

That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce you to a just-released book [1] by two of my dear friends, Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae. I love and appreciate each of these ladies so much. They have a passion to encourage and build up struggling weary mamas and they do just that in their new book, Desperate [1].


(me, Sarah Mae, and Sally at the Allume conference a few months back)

Desperate [1] 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 [1] 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.

Sally and Sarah Mae wrote Desperate hoping to leave you feeling soul-filled, refreshed, and hopeful.
