This paper will discuss how couples can learn to cope with their infertility, some of the problems facing couples as they try to deal with it, and give biblical encouragements to you as you try to find and follow God’s will in your life in the area of children and family. Each chapter will begin with a brief scenerio of a couple’s struggle with infertility, based on the situations of many couples I have known, pastored, or who have agreed to be interviewed. The names and situations are altered to protect their privacy.
