Lesson 126 – “Trusting God with your Family Size”


Many times, well-intentioned Christians accept common cultural practices without giving them a second thought. Such was the case with Gerrit Van Essen and his wife, Catherine, when they decided to limit the size of their family. As the couple walked with the Lord, He began working in their lives and they decided to give Him control of their family. God blessed this step of obedience, and the Van Essens had another child. In this interview, Gerrit shares with Robert Newhouse how the Lord worked in their lives and the blessings that followed their obedience.

  1. This is such a powerful session! I have a suggestion for Embassy Media… Would it be possible for subscribers be able to share a video (like this one) with a friend who they feel would be blessed by it? Perhaps members could share one video a month free with a friend. Or perhaps the member could pay $1, or give a donation each time they share a video with someone. I don’t know the specifics of how or if it could work but it would be wonderful if it could. It would get the message out and more people would find out about Embassy. May God bless and lead the Embassy Media team. We appreciate you. Your labor in the Lord is not in vain. Thank you for all you do!
