Popular Christian artiste, Carrie Underwood shares how God turns her pain into gain through faith and resilience by overcoming the trauma of several miscarriages, and enduring a facial laceration that required extensive reconstructive surgery.
She said “I put a lot of stress on myself—I feel like a lot of moms do, a lot of women do,” “the best moments in my life are when I say, ‘Hey, I can’t control everything, and that’s okay. God is in control.”
Talking about issues surrounding her Christian faith, “I’ve always wanted to be a good daughter to my parents but also to God and not complain, because we are beyond blessed. I get to do what I love, I have an incredible family. I have Mike, I have Isaiah, I have great parents. I have all of these amazing people around me, and I don’t want to complain, ever.” She explains, “But the miscarriages made me get real with God and say, ‘Okay, I’m kind of giving up a little bit. If this isn’t meant to happen, then I need to accept that and know that someday I’ll understand why.’”
