Learning God’s Hard Life Lessons

Infertility is so hard to bear. Yet, seen through the eyes of faith, it can become redemptive. Jacob & Beth say the lessons they learned through infertility and the premature births of their twins prepared them to deal with other, longer-term trials in life. Through it all, they’ve come to trust God more and learned to serve others well. Be inspired by their journey in this episode of Southeastern Fertility’s “Hope, Faith, & Infertility” podcast.
