Publisher's Summary

For mothers of young children, this audiobook 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 audiobook 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 audiobook’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.

Very real and just what I needed in this season of life

This book was amazing. I found myself laughing and in tears within the first few chapters. There were moments that literally stopped me in my tracks. This book is a wonderful compilation of real and compassionate. A beautiful breathe of fresh air for THIS mama who needed to know she wasn’t alone. I would recommend this book to every mama who has their faith in Jesus and even to those whose hearts have been searching for answers they need found. This will definitely be a reread for me!

Worth Your Time

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book helps us each see that we are not lone rangers, we all have issues and through time, God's help and each other, we can make it through. Sally and Sarah explain the ways to have success through the busy years of parenting.

What about Nan Gurley and Chelsea Thayer ’s performance did you like?

It was hard knowing Sally's voice in real life and hearing the reader speak for her but the reader did a good job.

If only the 'review' was accurate!!

I am so horrendously annoyed that my valued 'monthly credit' was utterly wasted on this book. I am not anti religion but this book is next level, religious opinion.... I couldn't even listen past chapter one!!! If only the initial description was honest and reliable....
I'm sure many people will love this book
.. unfortunately I feel deceived that the description was made to feel very uplifting, religion neutral and open beliefs.... it's not!!!!
