$21.99

Paperback
Also Available In

For mothers of young children, this book is a lovely offering of hope, truth, freedom, wild grace, friendship, and the knowledge that they are not alone.

Many moms have dreamed of life with children, and yet the reality seems far away from their dreams. Their hearts are committed, but their spirits are sagging. This book is a coffee-talk from one woman who is still ?figuring-it-out-in-the-mess? (Sarah Mae) and much-needed counsel from one who is older and wiser (Sally Clarkson). The book's message speaks to the hearts of desperate women who need a friend to come alongside and encourage them, give them hope, and remind them of who they are.

Desperate is a tremendous source of compassion and information for any mama of young children who:

  • Feels she's going under
  • Is isolated and lonely
  • Has lost to the beast of housework
  • Is suffering from depression and a feeling of desperation

Each mother will know she has a woman who can relate with her in the daily struggles of mama-hood, and will receive wisdom from an older woman who has gone through the struggles and made it to the other side.

An encouraging read
5 stars By Annette, Dec 27 2016
As a young Mum I found this book very relevant, refreshing and encouraging. It acknowledges the hard aspects and emotions of this stage of life while gently re-directing our gaze to Jesus. It's easy to read with a tired brain and can be used in a devotional style.

Essential reading for every young mum!
5 stars By Bethany, Jun 24 2013
I received this book as a gift when I had my baby. It is by far the best gift I have every received. With a busy household, life gets difficult and often I can feel snowed under and overwhelmed. Sometimes I feel like I can't even face another day. This wonderful book is encouraging, inspiring and gives help and hope when you are feeling alone and desperate! It has been a huge blessing to me and I'm sure that any young mum that reads it, will feel the same. So, if you are feeling like you can't face today as a mum, that you need hope, or that you just need to breathe, you must read this fabulous book!!
