"Desperate" Review

The next book I reviewed for Thomas Nelson’s blogger book review group, Book Sneeze, was “Desperate: Hope For the Mom Who Needs to Breathe”.  This non-fiction ,Christian book is written by Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae. I had read several of Sally Clarkson’s books on motherhood before, so I was very eager to begin this book. This is, hands down, one of the best books on Christian motherhood that I have ever read!  I have already recommended it to several moms, and will continue to do so!  The format is written as Sarah Mae writing a short letter to Sally with a question, or struggle that she is dealing with as a young mom. Then, there is a response letter from Sally.  Following this, there is a portion of explanation written by Sarah, and then Sally. Sally is a mom who now has 4 adult children, and is acting as a mentor to young mothers. She has such valuable advice to offer because she has experienced the things that every young mother faces.  This book is full of real-life examples, struggles, and difficulties, along with how to be overcomers in these things. Scripture is prevalent, and I think this book is a must-read for every young, Christian mother!
