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.

Not what I expected

This book had religious overtones from the beginning. Maybe I missed that in the summary but I thought this would be about a woman/mother's struggle to find peace and balance but I quickly felt like this was about finding strength through God. I did not finish this as I was not looking for this sort of message.

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.
