    1. This is a difficult one to rate I read this over the course of a few months with a group of moms for bible study We had new moms, seasoned older moms and grandmothers, and those of us in between The group was wonderful and encouraging The book has it s ups and downs I appreciated the encouragement and bible verses The advice to find women who are in the same stage of parenting as you and those who are older and experienced is great I think all new moms could use a mom friend to listen and encou [...]


    2. I did enjoy this book and found many things that convicted and encouraged me However, after a few chapters, I tired a bit of the whiny tone in Sarah Mae s writings and the over bubbly cheer of Sally s responses It seemed to focus so much on the me of motherhood and not much on how as Christian mother s we are really called to take up our crosses and follow Himwithout focusing on our own needs He will supply all of our needs, according to His riches in gloryd He will provide just enough quiet mom [...]


    3. Really good mothering book The blend of Sarah Mae s honesty with Sally s wise, godly, and time tested wisdom, well, I loved it I am an idealist and a dreamer and so I connect with Sally s writing so well She is a beautiful writer and lover of God.


    4. This is perhaps the hardest review I have ever written Why Because this book was so very real to me From the moment I read the description, I knew I had to read it Never did it occur to me that I would have such an emotional response to the book.What is the book about, you ask I just can t be a mother today That is the name of the Introduction.How many times have those words been in my heart How many times have those words sunk deep into my being But I am a mother Of two precious girls who need [...]


    5. I found many good reminders in this book that my greatest job in training up my children, that routines are helpful, that the desperate little babies time does end, that I need both to seek someone to mentor as well as to find someone to mentor me I do have a few finer points of disagreement though 1 I disagree with how they handled the issue of struggling with depression There was a little too much just trust God, read your Bible, start working hard, and you ll feel better That works for the do [...]


    6. Desperate, Hope for the Mom Who Needs to BreatheBy Sarah Mae Sally ClarksonI really want to like this book several people I really respect love this book I like the overall concepts of this book but there are so many little things that keep me from loving it.Desperate is team written by a young mom and mentor mom and covers a variety of topics including the mission of motherhood, reason why we do what we do, needing others especially a mentor, the sin factor, and gritty stuff like depression, ho [...]


    7. I ve given this four stars because it was encouraging, convicting, and I d read it again on difficult mothering days Well maybe the next day, since difficult mothering days don t usually offer up a lot of spare time for reading Some points and counterpoints NEGATIVE A theme throughout the book is the concept of me time Maybe a short snippet reminding mothers to be sure they re physically and spiritually strong enough to serve their families is in order, but this was reiterated in almost every ch [...]


    8. Just can t even put into words how much this spoke to me as a mama of young ones Like having a conversation with a mentor A must read And I will read again.


    9. Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae partner together with ease in this convicting and encouraging book They get it, they understand what a mother often feels deep inside and are able approach a multitude of questions and situations with a biblically sound, Godly approach I wish I read this years ago for it s a book worth rereading Don t get me wrong, this is not a book just for mothers of wee ones, its a book for moms who need to be refreshed and renewed on the importance of the children God blessed yo [...]


    10. I read this whole book in one day I realized it was due at the library, and I had not even cracked the cover open I didn t want to return it without having an idea what it was all about, but when I started perusing it, it completely sucked me in and I just didn t want to stop reading That is definitely a first for me when it comes to parenting books Usually, I have found them unhelpful, but I trudge through them anyway because I want to have an informed opinionThis book is a breath of fresh air [...]


    11. MY REVIEW As a mother of 3 kids birthed within a 4 year window I can relate to moments of desperation So many books make you feel like you should be Mary Poppins and gloss over the reality of the daily grind Sally and Sarah Mae address the issues that most of us mothers are too scared to even breath a word about I remember being caught completely of guard by several things as a young mother in the desperate days Desperate is 14 chapters of back and forth between the desperate mom Sarah Mae and t [...]


    12. I want to start with positives This book was excellent in portraying the importance of Titus 2 Us young, ignorant mothers really need help, advice and encouragement from those older, wiser, and godlier women We weren t meant to be alone Also it did a very good job of communicating proper priorities not letting other things distract you from your God given, primary purpose of wife and mother.As for the negatives, I felt like this book was based on a fairly existential type foundation There was a [...]


    13. There are times when I begin reading a book and realize that if I could only keep one book on the topic, this would be it The author isn t just speaking my language they are speaking God s truth right into my life That s the kind of book Desperate is for me.Sarah Mae and Sally don t provide formulas but they explain why formulas can be a formula for failure and guilt They encourage idealistic young moms like I was that those ideals are good, but being unrealistic about ideals is unhealthy.Desper [...]


    14. One word that kept coming to mind as I read this book waswisdom There are lots of wise words for moms with young children There are plenty of wise words for older moms to mentor and encourage younger mothers As a father of young children and a pastor of many young families this book is going to be a helpful resource I will recommend to many of the young moms and dads to read together I thought the approach of the two authors responding to each other was wise Sarah was able to be honest about the [...]


    15. 4.5 starsAs I near the end of my pregnancy, I m miserable I m exhausted, in pain , and ill AS A HORNET My house looks like a tornado swiped through it My precious little ones rarely get to see the best of me these days As I collapse into bed at night, I m filled with guilt and frustration because I realize I ve did fussing and complaining at them than I have shown them what a joy they really are to me When I picked up this book, I was truly desperate I was so desperate to know that I m not alon [...]


    16. Desperate Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson addresses the often overwhelming nature of motherhood Mae is a mother of three young children who is in the trenches and barely on the other side of that common desperate feeling of moms with small children Clarkson is an experienced mom with four grown children Mae writes out of her current experience Clarkson writes from the years of experience she has garnered.There are 14 chapters, each one addressing a different [...]


    17. Difficult book to rate Actual rating 3.5I too am desperate to stay afloat in a wide ocean of little people needs Like Sarah, I long to be surrounded by older women who have gone before me, are comfy in their skin and can tell me this is a season, you can make it through, put on your big girl undies and rise to the challenge This book responds to that penury of older voices Sally shares wisdom of hindsight with great understanding for the real struggles of the growing years and compassion in pare [...]


    18. This book is not perfect and I didn t love all of it, but I did love a lot of it If you are a Christian mother who has chosen to build her own small army like myself , I encourage you to read this book It was very encouraging for my weary heart I highlighted so much on my kindle version which I almost literally never do that I am going to buy a hard copy because I know I will be rereading it at least a few times in the years to come And I just like real book better than ebooks


    19. Several things bothered me about this book It uses discipline and spanking as synonyms in the section about depression it implies that with the right faith and lifestyle you can avoid depression that is a dangerous message for women suffering from clinical depression She goes do far as to suggest that buying a scarf or hiring a cleaner might help So clearly not suggestions for the poor mother, and trivilized depression the mentor mentee setup came off as trite as a mom who needs to take a deep b [...]


    20. I think this book was supposed to be uplifting I thought I might get some ideas for coping with my 2 littles Instead I felt very judged The book was poorly organized, focused on the 2 authors relationship that they think is ideal, and was confusing.When asked about moms working outside the home the author states we will suffer the consequences of our actions Ew I felt like I was reading a handbook from a cult.


    21. This book was helpful to me as a husband and father to better understand the things that wives and mothers struggle with on a daily basis Being a mother is not easy and being a husband who wants to help his wife can be confusing but this book gives some good insight into how a husband can help his wife with her needs.


    22. I would recommend this book to any mom I love that it s a realistic picture of motherhood without pretense, but it also points to grace, hope, and that we must mother by faith I especially loved the chapter on listening to the voice of God for direction in our families rather than listening to the countless voices that influence our choices.


    23. For me, I loved it Yeah, sometimes it was too perfect and had all the right answers, and I didn t agree with everything 100% of the time, but it has changed my outlook on a lot of things It touched my heart and made me think deeper about all the little things that sometimes I never gave much thought to I will be reading books by these authors.


    24. This book came at a time when I literally felt desperate and wondered if I was going to make it to the end Thankfully, Desperate was like a friend wrapping her arms around my neck tenderly, whispering in my ear that I can get through.


    25. A bit corny in some of the wording but overall a very good read I felt very uplifted by this book On the days I read anywhere from a page to a chapter, I felt my attitude towards motherhood Christ centered It was like a little devotional every time I read it.



    26. Loved this book I could completely identify with it It has offers me such hope and encouragement Reading it a second time with a group of ladies.


    27. A refreshing, encouraging and must read for every mom, especially if she feels she has no time to read let alone go to the bathroom in peace.


    28. I went through this book with my mentor, and that was the way to do it It gave us some good talking points, and it did do what it claimed and gave me a bit of hope.


    29. 4.5 stars I happened to pick up this book by chance, when another book I wanted from the library wasn t available and I was so glad that I did This is a grace filled book written for mothers, especially mothers who are feeling overwhelmed and discouraged Co written by a young mom, and an older mom who has already raised her kids, I love that it has both perspectives I kind of wish they had a different title for the book because I almost didn t read it because I wasn t feeling particularly desper [...]
