I hold these pages, words of Sarah Mae’s and Sally’s, that are a gift to every mother, that welcome mothers everywhere out of hiding and loneliness and into a fellowship of sisters and mentors, that will make you feel not alone, that will make you feel that there is real God-given hope. -Ann Voskamp, New York Times best-selling author of One Thousand Gifts
“I just can’t be a mother today.”
If you’ve ever whispered those words to God in quiet desperation, you are not alone.
That is why I am so excited to read this book with you, so that as we open up to each other about our struggles and our flaws as mothers, we can commit to encouraging each other and lifting one another up in prayer. That is the beauty of community in Christ.
Our book study of Desperate: Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe will begin Friday, February 1st and will continue for 8 weeks.
Each Friday, according to the schedule below, I will post a brief two chapter review here on the blog, as well as a few questions to start a light discussion in the comments.
2/1 – Chapters 1&2
2/8 – Chapters 3&4
2/15 – Chapters 5&6
2/22 – Chapters 7&8
3/1 – Chapters 9&10
3/8 – Chapters 11&12
3/15 – Chapters 13&14
3/22 – Conclusion/Q&A
So buy the book, invite your friends, and plan to meet me back here on Friday, February 1st!
I’m excited and I hope you are too!
