Moms talk about having babies all the time—and today, we get to hear a dad’s perspective on having children. Join Heidi and her friends (and parents of eight), Darryl and Durenda Wilson for some honest and encouraging talk about how God changed their hearts toward having children. Rather than take on an attitude of “this is right for everyone,” you’ll be encouraged to seek God’s heart—and read His Word for direction.
