    "Walk With Me" Small Group

    A small group of women who will become involved in each others' lives through God’s Word, friendship, and prayer while we journey down the road of infertility (primary & secondary infertility, miscarriage(s), and unsuccessful adoption).

     

    Purpose is to be a Small Group who can relate to each other, and genuinely pray for each other as we grow closer to the Lord spiritually.

     

    Purpose is not to give advice (medical, spiritual, emotional, etc.) as pertaining to infertility and adoption.

    Remembering Rachel

    This group is for women who have gone through infertility or the loss of a child, especially through infant death or miscarriage. This will be a safe environment for women to talk about these deeply personal and painful issues and that they would find strength, peace and healing in the arms of Jesus. Every mom deserves a place to be a mom, whether her children are on earth, in heaven or they are believed and longed for.

Walking through infertility is never easy, but it's even harder when you feel alone.  There is wonderful support to be found within the friendship and safety of a group of people who understand your tears before they fall.  An Infertility Support Group is a fantastic place to share feelings, gain new strength and share prayer requests and praise reports.  Maybe it's just the resource you've been searching for!

 

Below is a list of infertility support groups across the USA. If you need a group, check this page. Perhaps you'll find exactly what you've been looking for! If you would like your group listed, please click here.

 

If you are in the Baton Rouge, LA area, you are invited to the original Sarah's Laughter Infertility Connect Group & Bible Study led by Beth Forbus. Meetings are held the first and third Thursday nights of each month.  Our Bible Study focuses specifically on the issues you face as you walk through infertility.  One meeting may focus on the jealousy you feel when a friend or relative conceives while you are still waiting.  Another time, we may look at what the Bible says we can to do get through the two-week wait with our sanity intact!  We then open the floor for discussion so you can talk about whatever you need to talk about.  It's such a release to be able to share your heart and know that someone else understands how you feel.

 

We'd love to have you come on out and give the group a try.  Contact beth@sarahs-laughter.com for details and directions.

I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Nevertheless, you have done well to share with me in my affliction.

  Philippians 4:13-14
