My Testimony – Husband Healed from Sterility!

I Know how painful it is to be told by Doctor’s that “You

Here are my 4 miracle children.

will never have children of your own”. And if you are facing a similar situation, let me encourage you because with God nothing is ever impossible! We had 4 children in 4yrs! Here is my story…

Worship the LORD your God, and His blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness from among you, and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. I will give you a full life span. Exod 23:25-26

To Shaun (my husband) and I, this Scripture is not simply words on a page but living truth. Faith in that promise has meant that our children Kaitlin, Aidan, Aaron and Jesse could be born into the world. It is the power of God’s Word of truth that brought about what man declared an impossibility.

In January 1994, after several medical tests and examinations Shaun was diagnosed as being sterile. The tests concluded that he had a nonexistent sperm count and he was told that it was medically impossible for him to father a child. The only option offered to us was to have a child using sperm donation. But Shaun made a decision to reject the diagnosis because he knew it was God’s will for us to have our own biological children.

When Shaun came home and shared the diagnosis with me, at first I was devastated. All my hopes and dreams of becoming a mother were shattered. All I could hear in my mind were the words of the doctor that it was ‘medically impossible for us to have a child of our own.’ Shaun’s body needed physical healing and my mindset and faith in God needed healing. I had often prayed in the past for healing from colds and sore throats and I would be healed. That seemed easy for me. But at first I couldn’t fathom the miracle that Shaun needed. In order for me to believe for our child I had to renew my mind with the Word of God.

Back then I had no idea that God had provided answers for me in this area in His Word until I came across the scripture in Exodus 23, which said that I would not miscarry or be barren. If I had not discovered this promise, I may have never known God’s will for my life. This scripture went straight to my heart and impacted me in a powerful way. I knew beyond doubt that it was the nature, character and will of God for me to have my own biological children! Through this scripture God showed me that our situation was not impossible. It revealed that an impossible situation for us was simply an opportunity for Him! I soon learnt to put my trust in what God said about me in His Word and not the words of the prognosis.

God’s Word had been planted like a seed of faith in both Shaun’s and my heart. From that time on it was up to us to water, feed and nurture the seed so it could grow. By faith we believed together that Jesus would bring life to what our circumstances said were dead.

When our doctor recommended more tests to find the cause of Shaun’s sterility, we decided to trust our judgment (we had prayed for wisdom) and chose not to follow through with the tests, but to trust solely in God’s Word. We continued to claim healing for Shaun’s body and thanked God for our child. During this time of growing in faith, our circumstances didn’t seem to change. However we supported each other in prayer, standing in agreement on God’s Word and speaking words of faith, not words of defeat. We chose to believe that what God said He would do He would actually do. And within six months, I became pregnant with our first child! When Shaun told our doctor the news, he wouldn’t believe it. He called Shaun into his office and after showing him again the results of the tests he said, ‘this is not your baby. It is impossible for you to father a child!’ Well, he was wrong! Nothing is impossible with God!

My testimony didn’t end there. I also faced adverse circumstances such as threatened miscarriages, an ectopic pregnancy and the threat of Downs’ syndrome but by placing my trust in God and His Word, I had four healthy children within four and a half years! I also took the Word (like medicine) into my pregnancies, births and postnatal period and was able to rise above these and other complications and experience healthy pregnancies, childbirth without trauma, complications or excruciating pain and enjoy the blessing of bringing forth a new life as well as the whole childbearing experience.

Hosea 4:6 says, ‘my people perish because of lack of knowledge.’ The main way we gain Godly knowledge for our life and also knowledge of God’s will for our life is through His Word. God is the creator of everything; He is also not a respecter of persons which means He doesn’t show favouritism (Romans 2:11). So anyone who believes can receive from God’s Word. Jesus said when you know the truth it will set you free (John 8:32). Through the work He did on the cross, you can overcome any problem of barrenness, fertility challenge or any other complication throughout your pregnancy and birth and, like me, learn to walk in a spirit of victory.

Shaun and I use Scripture every time we pray now, because we have learned how powerful it is. My prayer is that as you develop your trust in God your relationship and understanding of Him will deepen. I also pray that you will receive revelation and knowledge from His Word regarding His plan for your children. However, do not simply read Scriptures but apply them to your life. Study, meditate and speak them over your circumstances to renew your mind because when you meditate on the promises of God, He will reveal his ‘good, pleasing and perfect will’ in your life (Romans 12:2).

    • Am pleased to hear you are encouraged. I pray you will have as many babies as your heart desires! If you haven’t already discovered them, I have some free audio testimony downloads on this blog that may also encourage you in your journey 🙂

  1. Nerida, I’ve been blessed beyond words by your teaching! Thank you for “paving the way” for all of us struggling with infertility. My husband was diagnosed as sterile 7yrs ago but we believe he’s been healed. By his stripes he WAS healed…Now, I have a question: Is it possible that, even though my husband’s body is healed, fears and doubts in MY mind could stop conception from taking place? I always just looked at it like “if he’s really healed, then I would’ve conceived already” but after hearing your story it seems like it has a lot to do with my thinking as well. It’s hard sometimes because the problem isn’t with my body, so trusting that my husband has truly received his healing takes faith and it’s a daily battle of the mind. I’m sure you know all about that and could give me some tips on this. Thank you for all you’re doing!

    • Hi Linda, yes I know where you are coming from. The provision for healing is always freely available to us. However, if we remain fixated on the natural realm in any way then we can remain stuck in the natural circumstances. Seeing healing manifest isn’t that difficult, it is a matter of is getting out of the way and coming to the end of our own resources so that we can tap into the Kingdom resources instead.

      I encourage you to give the seed of God’s truth time to grow and develop and to transform your thinking because the truth you KNOW always makes you free!

  2. Hi Nerida
    Thank you for your encouraging testimony. My husband and I received the devastating news in March 2000 that he didn’t produce sperm (a biopsy revealed that he didn’t even possess the sertoli cells that make sperm). God miracously spoke to me in August 2000 about having miraculous children and it has been backed up several times since. We also adopted two children in 2004. However, we still long for the miracle; God spoke of 2 by 2. It is sometimes still hard to keep hoping 14 years later (and I’m 42 years old now). However, it is still very much the desire of our hearts. We declare God’s goodness to us but I sometimes just wonder if it’s a pipe dream! I was a midwife for 14 years too!

  3. Praise God! Your testimony has blessed my heart! I thought I was alone! We tried for 1 year. My Mother (a nurse) encouraged us to start seeing some specialist. After 7 long emotional months, we were told by a doctor the same thing! That day when we told my Mother-in-Law, she sat both of us down and showed us what God’s Word says. That night, we came together, found what God had to say in His Word, and started standing. That was about 2 years ago. I wasn’t raised this way. I didn’t know about “standing on God’s word.” Like, Linda, I struggle with my emotions getting the better of me. Especially during that time of month. I struggle with the guilt that my “newness” to this has cost us 2 years. I try to not let my thoughts get the better of me. Any advise? Thank you for writing your testimony!

    • Hi Please do pray for us to have a miracle baby. We are still kind of standing (although exhausted) after 13 years of waiting. My husband was diagnosed as being sterile over 13 years ago but we believe that God spoke to us about a miracle conception. We have 2 adopted kids but it’s not the promise! I’m 43 now so feeling a bit old although young at heart. It’s very painful to believe and stand for 13 years! although I’ve prayed for others and seen miracle conceptions. Sharon

  4. Thank you for sharing this timely testimony. I have been married for three years now and was diagnosed with azospermia two years ago. Since then my marriage hasn’t been the same and we almost divorced a year ago. My wife believes more in medical solutions while I ‘m on the faith side of the equation. I have taken countless medication to no avail for the past two years and I have finally decided to trust God wholly for a devine healing without my wife’s consent anyway who is not spiritual agreement with me now. She will not even allow us to make love for many months now because she thinks until she see a test results showing a change it is not worth the effort. My marriage is at a standstill now virtually enduring it rather than enjoying. I feel so much depressed most at times and my faith in God for miraculous healing is what sustains me. I need more advise prayer support as its really weighing me down. I believe in the power of God to heal and I will come back and share the testimony on this page to God’s glory a year by now Amen.
