Desperate is for those who love their children to the depths of their souls but who have also curled up under their covers, fighting back tears, and begging God for help. It's for those who have ever wondered what happened to all their ideals for what having children would be like. For those who have ever felt like all the "experts" have clearly never had a child like theirs. For those who have prayed for a mentor. For those who ever felt lost and alone in motherhood.
In Desperate you will find the story of one young mother's honest account of the desperate feelings experienced in motherhood and one experienced mentor's realistic and gentle exhortations that were forged in the trenches of raising her own four children.
Whether you are a first time mom, or an experienced mom, Desperate will inspire you to be a part of the ultimate goal of the book, to be a part of the no-more-desperate-moms movement.
Included in the Book:
- QR codes and links at the end of each chapter that lead to videos with Sarah Mae and Sally talking about the chapter
- Practical steps to take during the desperate times
- Bible study and journal exercises in each chapter that will lead you to identify ways in which you can grow as a mom

If God has called you to be really like Jesus, He will draw you to a life of crucifixion and humility, and put upon you such demands of obedience that you will not be able to follow other people, or measure yourself by other Christians, and in many ways, He will seem to let other good people do things which He will not let you do.
Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church.
Breaking out of bondage into a life of grace and hope. It begins with promise-a promise to set at liberty those who are oppressed. A burning bush moment when the Holy Spirit whispers in our ear- I am leading you to the heart of My heart- I want to reveal My unconditional love for you and make you free.
Stories of Sifted offers 30 familiar accounts of prominent biblical leaders, told from their point of view. From Adam to the apostle Paul, these stories of sifting remind us that God calls and refines messed up people to accomplish His grand purposes. Walking with these leaders through their sifting and refining process, we see how God uses suffering to accelerate our spiritual growth through our surrender to Him.

The Christian community tends to operate under the assumption that the only women attending church are traditional stay-at-home moms. But in truth, more than 75% of mothers with school-age children work outside the home.
Chasing Superwoman gives these working mothers what they’ve been craving—a funny, intelligent, relevant exploration of what it means to live out a vibrant faith amidst the many demands placed on their time and energy. Chasing Superwoman provides a much needed dialogue (not a formula) about the complex spiritual struggle of the working mother, plus a lot of laughter and encouragement for working women to embrace their busy life and trust God’s grace for getting it all done.

Duck Dynasty is simple, funny, light hearted and always enjoyable.
Why so many people keep watching Duck Dynasty is because of something unique in the contemporary smorgasbord of contemporary television - the actual presence of real values.
These people are salt of the earth folks who simply love each other and receive all of life as a gift.
They also love God in a naturally supernatural way which is communicated without the necessity of words.
There are real, human, redemptive values on display in each episode as the family faces the raising of children, remaining faithful to their marriages and supporting one another in the rough and tumble of real life.
In addition, in almost every episode, they end with the extended family sharing a meal which begins with a heartfelt and sincere prayer of thanksgiving to the Lord.
In this day and age where 'God' is a bad word to say, they embrace their faith and share it with the world.
No wonder Duck Dynasty is one of the top shows on television today.
The book of Isaiah has been called “the Bible in miniature.” Both are comprised of sixty-six sections—chapters in Isaiah, books in the Bible. Isaiah first chronicles a holy God’s need to judge sin, reflecting the Old Testament, as latter chapters preface the New Testament, revealing the mercy to come through God’s Son. This study examines a sweeping narrative of Israel, and explores the very arch of God’s redemptive story, as sin and judgment are defeated through the grace of our Savior.
The Wiersbe Bible Studies Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s word. Based on Dr. Warren W.

Designed for small groups, this eight-week study features selected commentaries from Be Comforted , engaging questions, and practical applications, all designed to help you connect God’s word with your life.
