4 Reasons to Buy Desperate, Plus a $300 Target GC and an iPad Mini Giveaway!

PicMonkey Collagewomen

Have a picture of you with Desperate? Send it to me!

I’m not sure you know this, but authors do not sleep during launch week.

I have not been to bed before midnight this whole week, and I’m still up with the babes in the morning (although thank goodness they’ve been sleeping in until around 8pm). Launch week has been so much fun, and I’ll be sad when it’s over tomorrow, but I’m sure my body will be happy!

Okay, how about a book update?

We made it up to #64 on Amazon today, out of all books on Amazon, so that’s wonderful! The book is getting into the hands of “desperate” mamas everywhere, and I am just grateful for you all and how you’ve spread the word; thank you again, and again.

For those of you who are thinking about getting a copy of Desperate, a few quick thoughts for you:

We Wrote it For You

Actually, I wrote it for myself. I was in a place where I needed to process my own feelings of desperation. I needed to get the truth out of me and know that I wasn’t crazy; that I wasn’t alone. Turns out, thousands of you have felt desperate, alone, unsupported, exhausted, and praying for a mentor. In reading Desperate, you will know that you are not alone, that you are not the only one struggling with motherhood, and you are not the only one who has ever whispered, “I just can’t be a mother today.

But it doesn’t end with the just the relating, because that wouldn’t be enough, would it? We need more than to know we’re not alone, we need guidance and wisdom and support and grace and love. Sally mentors you through the book, and her wisdom is a gift. She’s not harsh, and she’s not into formula’s; she’s into God, and she cares about moms.

We’re About a Movement, Not Just a Message

Desperate is not just another book with a helpful message, it’s about a movement. A movement of mothers coming together to support one another. A movement where older women invest in the lives of younger women; where moms don’t have to do motherhood alone. We want to see women helping each other so that we can persevere in raising godly generations who know freedom, love people, and walk in the truth. Motherhood is hard; you shouldn’t have to do it alone.

We’ve Made it Easy To Read This Book With Other Moms

In each chapter of Desperate you will find QR codes (and video links) to videos of Sally and I talking about the chapter. The videos are only 2-4 minutes long, but are great to use in a book study. Also, at the end of each chapter are scripture verses, questions, and challenges for you. These make it easy to read and discuss in a group setting.

An additional tool we’ve made available for free is the Desperate Small Group Guide. You can download it here for free.

Special Gifts for Those Who Facilitate a Group

If you want to get together with other moms, consider getting your books this week. If you purchase 5 books, you will receive…

If you purchase 8 books, you will receive…

These gift offers expire on Saturday night at 11:59pm, EST. Please see the end of this post to find out how to receive your gifts.

    I put this in my Amazon queue. There are times I feel desperate with the life I have. I struggled with infertility for many years. God has given me 2 miracle babies, but they drive me crazy sometimes, which makes me feel very guilty. Hoping to read your book and get a new perspective.

    what a wonderful way to reach moms who are desperate! Thank you so much

  • Duise

    I plan to buy this book, but these giveaways are amazing. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I definitely feel desperate many times in just one day! But I know God is changing things for the better in my life, and the life of my.family. He’s bringing some great resources along the way. I pray that this movement will grow big, truly honor God in our roles as Mothers, that His word isn’t archaic when applied to our lives, blessings pour out for the world to see that what we are doing as mothers is right, because souls will be impacted.

  • http://twitter.com/crowliewrites Erika Crowl

    Sarah Mae – I love that you write that this is a “movement, not just a message.” This is critical in today’s motherhood. We hear so many great messages that stir our hearts for a moment or two but we really are in need of something more. Partnering with you and Sally in prayer for this exciting initiative and praying for rest for you, mama :)

  • Jennifer

    I’m so glad this book has done so well…it is a much needed message. I have been particularly struck by chapter 2…i’ve been “desperate” for friendship. As a pastor’s wife and stay-at-home mom, it has been hard to have close friendships. You move into a church situation where circles of friends are already established and you feel you are on the outside looking in and then as a stay-at-home mom (living on a very tight budget) there is little opportunity to connect sometimes. I am determined in the strength of the Lord helping me to step out of my comfort zone to reach out to three moms living in my neighborhood to establish a “mom’s night out”…there is so much ministry to be done and I’m tired of sitting back….I’m going to be desperate NO MORE!

    I have been wanting to get a group of Mom friends together- I’ve felt very disconnected recently. I think looking at Desperate will be a blessing to me- i desperately want to raise Godly children, and have a home that is a blessing to all who enter.

  • Katie D.

    Awesome!

  • Carrie

    Looking forward to reading this book. I have older children and a younger one behind. There are days I am between two places….desperate to love on my younger child but busy mentoring my older children or vice versa. I have longed for God to train me and meet me where I am so that in turn I can be that Titus 2 woman to others around me when God deems it is time. I am seeing both in this book, our mom hearts crying out and yet an example of how to reach out as a Titus 2 woman. I need both! Thank you both for being transparent with us so that we too may learn from what God is teaching you.

  • Jennifer Kochert

    You are lovely. Thank you a million times for this.

  • http://www.girlwithblog.com/ Anna R

    I would LOVE to gift my husband with this iPad mini! He has no fun gadgets or toys, just a clunky work computer and dying cell phone. He’s so supportive and wonderful – we’ve had a hard first year of being parents. Nothing crazy, just a wild child who was colicky and still doesn’t sleep all night. But that’s enough =) Thanks for this chance!

  • http://www.amylearns.com/ Amy Tilson

  • Tiffany

    I am so excited for this book. I am definitely feeling desperate with motherhood. I love my babies. I love this life God has given me, but oh man, sometimes burying myself underground doesn’t sound so bad. Balancing everything and at the same time searching for moments of rest and peace, challenging to say the least. I can’t wait to read what God has put on both of your hearts!
