It's so hard when your not on the same page. I think that is what bothered me the most. Praying for you and your DH for unity and God's will.

Re: Anyone else leave their childbearing up to God?

I'm so sorry ladies. I would encourage to continue to pray for your husband, but not to nag. This was an area that I absolutely had to let my husband lead in. When I brought it up to him, The Lord used such amazing events to curb and soften his heart. I loved just sitting back and watching it happen. We serve and almighty God Who is capable of anything.

I would encourage any of you, if you don't already, to subscribe to the Above Rubies magazine. Leave it for your husband to read, too. It's an encouraging free magazine for those who love Jesus and desire to follow Him with their whole hearts. Also Mr. Campbell has some great teaching videos and audios for men.

Praying for all of you. Please understand this is often a very hard area for men to submit in, as they are responsible for providing for their families. Sometimes that can be very daunting to think about.

Re: Anyone else leave their childbearing up to God?

Hello! We've been blessed with seven children (ages 17-5 months). We let go of trying to control our fertility after #3 (it was a long road including a vasectomy and a vasectomy reversal).

Keep praying and remain faithful!! I've been here, it's no fun! When DS3 was 7 weeks, my DH wasn't any where near ready, but by the time DS3 was 4 months old, he was on bored 100%! Miracles still happen in peoples lives! It is very hard for men to think about the responsibility of the finances, esp in these days.
