Country music star Carrie Underwood and her husband, retired NHL center Mike Fisher, get raw and honest about their life, relationship, and their strong faith in a new video series. I Am Second released a 4-part series titled “Mike and Carrie: God & Country” that every Christian will want to watch.
This power couple seemingly has it all. Carrie found success in music while Mike enjoyed a long career in the NHL. But, like any couple, these two have their challenges.
Mike is a hunter while Carrie is a strict vegetarian. Mike wanted children while Carrie needed coaxing on the issue.
But, their belief in God always brings them together despite what can at time be big divides.
Carrie Underwood’s Miscarriages
Mike and Carrie struggled with infertility after the birth of their first child, Isaiah. The “American Idol” winner suffered multiple miscarriages which left her traumatized.
Then she had an honest conversation with God that she couldn’t do this anymore. She either needed to have a baby or she didn’t. The miscarriages were too much to handle.
After being pushed nearly to her breaking point, Carrie finally got pregnant and had a second son, Jacob.
The couple explores this very raw and personal subject along with how faith helped get them through.
