Mentoring and Friendship: Necessities for Living & Thriving!


Two years ago, Sarah Mae and I launched our book together, Desperate: Hope for the Mom who Needs to Breathe

We felt that mamas needed to know that all of us feel desperate, alone, inadequate, lost and want to run away--at times! Even though we dearly love our children and want the very best for them.



Since that time, we have both received hundreds of letters from sweet mamas who have been inspired, encouraged and instructed through the book as they move toward becoming the mama God created them to be.Tweet-01

Consequently, we are so very happy to be able to share this radio show with you today, where we met with Jim Daly of Focus on the Family to prepare a webcast interviewing Sarah Mae and me, sharing our journey together in life, friendship and in our relationship of mentorship.

In light of this radio show celebration, our publisher, Thomas Nelson, has agreed to give away 5 books to readers to keep for themselves or to give to a friend. All you have to do to enter is to leave a comment below about your biggest struggle, delight or desire of what kind of mama you want your children to remember. And we will pick 5 winners from the comments. To find your radio show, go HERE.

To listen to the webcast, go HERE.


Hope you enjoy our show today. We always have lots of fun together.

Here are some of the quotes from the book.  

I always wanted to be a hero--to sacrifice my life in a big way one time--and yet, God has required my sacrifice to be thousands of days, over many years, with one more kiss, one more story, one more meal.” 

Sally Clarkson

“Going at it alone is, without a doubt, one of the most common and effective strategies that Satan uses to discourage moms.” Sarah Mae

“We can’t get away with anything with children. They are keen and attentive, and they will eventually grow up to tell the story of their home.”  

Sarah Mae

“One of the marks of a godly woman is that she takes responsibility for her soul's need for joy and delight. A woman is a conductor, who leads the orchestra of her surroundings in the songs and music of her life. God is a God of creativity and dimension, and so He is pleased when we we co-create beauty in our own realm, through the power of His Spirit.
