As mothers, we all feel like we are suffocating, at times. This life is hard. Raising kids is hard. Our society teaches us that each man if for himself. But....God never designed it this way. He wanted (and still wants) us to rely on each other in a community of women, lifting each other up!
There have been so many times in my motherhood journey that I reached out to God in desperation. I felt unprepared, unfocused, and particularly LOST! In reading the book, Desperate by Sarah Mae & Sally Clarkson, I realized I had it all wrong. My view of this motherhood gig was all wrong. I had been chasing all the wrong things, instead of putting my COMPLETE trust in the ONE who saves and delivers. Truthfully, Sarah Mae speaks the words I never could put together. As I read the book, I felt like she knew me, my struggle and ultimately OUR victory in Christ.
It is filling my spirit with such hope about this monumental job of motherhood. Sally Clarkson and Sarah Mae are speaking directly to us....to you, me, the mom down the street. As I read, I realize that most of my mothering years have been filled with feelings of desperation. I can totally identify with both Sarah Mae and Sally. The perspectives are so different, yet so biblical, encouraging and enlightening. It is truly manna for my soul!
It is, in so many ways, "hope for the MOM who needs to BREATHE!"
