The Heartbreak of Infertility

May 13, 2012 Speaker: Walter Wood, Jr. Series: Special Topics

Topic: Sermons Scripture: 1 Samuel 1:1–1:20

Infertility affects over 7 million women between the ages of 15-44 nationwide (12%) and several women in our church, both past and present.  Having never dealt with this issue before, I felt led to take it on this year.  I saw my daughter and son-in-law struggle for years with this problem, until God graciously answered their prayers.  and yet, many prayers for biological children go unanswered.  What are couples to do?  What should the church do?  There are women in our church even now wrestling with this issue.  My goal is to make us aware of the issue, offer support and understanding for those hurting, and to tie the barrenness theme-a prominent one in the Bible-to the gospel.
