In the second episode of “Mike and Carrie: God & Country,” the singer and her husband talk about the crisis of faith that followed their losses.
Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are back with another episode from their four-part I Am Second series, “Mike and Carrie: God & Country,” and the second installment is called “The Wrestle” — but the title doesn’t refer to a struggle between the duo.
Instead, as the “Love Wins” singer and Fisher explain in the candid conversational segment, after suffering multiple miscarriages, they found themselves wrestling with their faith and with God.
“It sounds wrong when you say it, but it’s one of those ‘bad things that happens to other people,’ you know what I mean?” Underwood explained of how she viewed miscarriage before it was a reality for her and her husband. “It’s like so many things in the world; it’s not something that you ever envision yourself having to deal with.”
Everything changed after she and Fisher endured pregnancy loss — repeatedly — when they tried for a second child after the arrival of their now-5-year-old son, Isaiah.
But in the video, Underwood recalled the day when Fisher told her they would definitely have another child — a boy named Jacob.
“And you know this because?” she asked him at the time.
“I was frustrated,” Fisher explained. “We’d had two miscarriages. What’s the future look like? We don’t know. Are we going to adopt? Are we going to … just going through things in your mind. I was just wrestling and probably the most honest I’d been with God. And I heard, not audibly, but I just sensed that God told me that we were going to have a son, and his name’s Jacob.”
