About this Episode

The church has long linked fertility to being blessed by God. 'Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him...Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them' is even in the bible. What does it mean to be a man who can't reproduce? How do Christians respond when longed-for children don't come along? What does a full life look like when dreams and desires are unfulfilled? Vicky Walker talks to writer and broadcaster Sheridan Voysey about masculinity, marriage, infertility, love, redemption and what happens when life doesn't go to plan.   This episode was sponsored by Christian Connection and Single Friendly Church.
