Beth Forbus shares her journey with infertility, the following crisis of faith, and then the redemptive beginnings of Sarah’s Laughter, Christian Support for Infertility and Child Loss.
Beth Forbus is the founder and president of Sarah’s Laughter – Christian Support for Infertility & Child Loss. A life of full-time infertility ministry is a dream Beth cannot believe she gets to live. She’s also written a few books, hosts an amazing infertility support group in Baton Rouge, as well as a faith-based infertility podcast, heard around the world. Her favorite day of the whole year is the day Sarah’s Laughter hosts Baby Steps Fun Run and she is able to present free IVFs and Family Building Grants to couples struggling with baby hunger. She spends much of her day helping someone launch an infertility support group in their own community. She loves spending time with her three fur babies, as well as her human daughter and husband. She enjoys bubble baths and fervently believes that there will be Coca-Cola in Heaven.
“I have never had such a trial of my faith as I did walking the journey of infertility.”
“Infertility brought me to my knees quickly. It brought me to my knees because it crushed me.”
“It made me question is God who He says He is.”
“God said ‘Beth that’s how I feel when you won’t come to me. But the joy you’ll have when your child comes to you, THAT’S the joy I feel when you come to Me’”.
“I can look back and I can see that the purpose of me walking through infertility was not to have a child, but it was to learn to trust God more.”
