I Don’t Want Kids: Episode 542
Music: Mosaic MSC
Choosing to Be Childless
Delayed marriage, debt, fear — everyone has their theories why, but the truth is that most millennials just aren’t having kids. Is that OK? Is it biblical? What if you just don’t want children of your own? What if you’re aging past childbearing age with no husband in sight? Lisa takes into account comments from our male listeners, then sits down with Sarah (who doesn’t feel called to have kids), Ashley (who didn’t want kids but has them now) and me (who has always wanted to be a mom) to hash out this tough topic.
I’ll Never Be a Mom
Guests: Chelsea Patterson Sobolik,
She was born without a womb — the result of a rare reproductive disorder. But she has a deep longing in her heart to be a mom and bear children of her own. Why in the world would God deny her that? Chelsea Patterson Sobolik admits to her doubts with God and offers hope for the woman who can’t have kids, whether medically or because of prolonged singleness.
