Springs in the Desert is a Catholic ministry devoted to helping women and couples struggling with infertility to process and move beyond their grief to find the fruitfulness God has planned for their marriage. The founders, Kimberly Henkel, Ph.D. and Ann Koshute, M.T.S., met while studying at the John Paul II Institute for Studies in Marriage and Family at the Catholic University of America in Washington D.C.
After discovering their shared struggle with infertility, they decided to work together to help other women and couples work through this same struggle. Their first article, “Springs in the Desert: Infertility, Accompaniment, and Fruitfulness” appears in the online Humanum Review, the Quarterly Review of the John Paul II Institute’s Office of Cultural and Pastoral Formation. They are currently writing a book, Springs in the Desert, which will lend itself to individual as well as group study.
