    Kayleigh McEnany Shares Darkest Moment of Her Life: ‘Satan Did His Best’

    Published on

    An excerpt from the forthcoming book by former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany describes the darkest moment of her life.

    The excerpt, which was published by the Daily Mail, comes from the new book, “Serenity in the Storm: Living Through Chaos by Leaning on Christ,” which goes on sale May 2. McEnany discusses the difficulty and struggles she experienced while trying to become pregnant with her second child, Nash, who came into the world in November.

    In contrast, her pregnancy with Blake, who is now three years old, occurred “rather quickly” with her husband Sean Gilmartin. The couple made the difficult decision to expand their family in the summer of 2021, as revealed by the Fox News presenter.

    “Several months passed, and negative pregnancy tests were ample. As spring of 2022 approached, part of me began to worry. Why wasn’t I getting pregnant? I attempted to overcome worry by leaning on faith,” she wrote.

    Then, a friend gave her a copy of Mark Batterson’s “Draw the Circle: The 40-Day Prayer Challenge,” and she resolved to put the book’s teachings into practice.

    “As I tried to pray with expectation, Satan did his best to infiltrate with worry, doubt, and frustration,” McEnany wrote.

    McEnany stated that she was “overcome with worry” regarding her capacity to conceive when she traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma in March 2022 to deliver a speech at the Extraordinary Women Conference.

    Meanwhile, the fact that many of her acquaintances were announcing their pregnancies added to her concerns.

    McEnany found solace in the music and other aspects of the program at the Tulsa conference, which helped her refocus on God and alleviate some of her sorrow, she said. She confided in Kathy Sparks Lesnoff, the chief executive officer of the pro-life organization Mosaic Pregnancy and Health Centers, about her struggles shortly thereafter.

    “[W]ithout hesitation, Kathy asked if she could pray over me. I agreed, and right there at our dinner table, Kathy and I bowed our heads while she said a heartfelt prayer for God to bless me with a child,” McEnany said.

    McEnany and her spouse prayed together for a child upon their return home. She subsequently discovered that the Bible study group of her father-in-law was also praying for the same intention.

    Three days later, she took a home pregnancy test, followed by a second one to be certain, and both confirmed that she was expectant.

    McEnany noted on Twitter: “For millions of women, struggles with pregnancy occur for far longer than a few months, and for some, pregnancy is simply not possible, even though they pray with hopeful expectation and faith, as Sean and I did. ‘My heart breaks for these women, and I imagine the struggle can be incomprehensible. Why did God answer my prayers? I do not have an answer, for we will never know God’s mysteries in full while here on earth.’ But I do know that Philippians 4:6-7 promises that God will bring peace to the faithful even when our prayers are not answered: ‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’”
