Despite being seen as calm and collected behind the podium, Kayleigh is crediting God for helping her get her tough job done. In an interview with CBN, she opened up how God intervened during her very first briefing.
“I was in panic mode right before,” she reveals. “I was just rattled and extremely nervous and feeling a lot of anxiety. Called my mom and on speakerphone, my family and we all prayed together…and all of a sudden I took a deep breath and after those prayers, moved forward. I felt such strength, went in and talked to the president, and then walked out and did the job that only could be done if God was there helping you along the way.”
Kayleigh was raised in a Southern Baptist home and as a teenager, she personally accepted Christ into her life. When she started her young professional life in her 20s, she experienced something that deepened her relationship with the Lord more.
“I was going through a hard time in New York and I was going to a great church in New York,” she explains. “I remember feeling very lonely. It was when I first started my young professional life and I remember getting a call. I never answered numbers I didn’t know but I answered that day, and it said, ‘hey, this is the Journey Church. We feel like we need to pray for you right now, how can we pray for you?’ It was at a distinct moment that I needed to hear from Christ and I felt that he communicated to me through my church. It’s that moment I think my faith became even more real.”
“We’re all here for a reason.”
As a devout Christian given an important public position, she believes that God has a reason and purpose.
“I believe God put me in this place for a purpose. And for a reason like he does with each and every life,” McEnany tells CBN News. “We’re all here for a reason.”
