Their first pregnancy ended in miscarriage. So did many, many others. They wanted children, and God gave them children, but for every live child they lost another one.
Listen to Tracy Spenst's story of how she and her husband had to depend on God throughout the experience of multiple miscarriages. A good reminder of the value of every human life, no matter how small, and the Catholic teaching on what it means to be open to life.
Many couples would have given up. Tracy and Nolan continued to trust in God. A beautiful witness to the faithfulness of Jesus in times of trial and grief.
I am a Catholic wife, mom and grandma. In 1995, after Bible college and a few years as an Evangelical Missionary, I was received into the Church at the Easter Vigil. These are my personal musings on Scripture, prayer, and living close to Jesus.
