Kayleigh McEnany has only been the White House press secretary for a few weeks, but she’s already shown the mainstream media that she’s not someone to mess with. McEnany has just opened up about her new faith like never before, saying that she firmly believes that God put her in Donald Trump’s administration for a reason.
McEnany explained to CBN News that while she has leaned on her faith all her life, she has never relied on it more than she has since entering Trump’s White House.
“I believe God put me in this place for a purpose and for a reason like He does with each and every life,” she said. “We’re all here for a reason.” McEnany went on to add that she felt God’s presence right before her very first press briefing as the White House press secretary.
“I was in panic mode right before,” she confessed. “I was just rattled and extremely nervous and feeling a lot of anxiety. I 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.”
McEnany also recounted how she often led Bible studies during her time working on Trump’s campaign. “We would pray and read the Word,” she recounted. “It just gave a little pep in our step because these days are demanding, they’re challenging, they’re long in politics, whether you’re a Democrat or Republican. That’s the nature of the job. It was a little rod of lightning, of just energy and joy in our day.”
McEnany then opened up about the bias against conservative Christians, saying that their loyal support for Trump drives the media crazy. “People are attacked for their faith,” she said. “Not just me, but Christian men and women across this country. It’s unfortunate, but I think we have found a real voice in President Trump, who stood for religious freedom and pro-life, and [has] given us this boldness.”
It was during her time at Harvard Law School that McEnany said she first saw this bias against Christians. “I realized it was that megaphone and that kind of boldness we needed, and that kind of fighter we needed to represent the Christian community,” she explained.
In the end, McEnany said that she is devoted to serving God with everything she does, even in the White House. “My mission in life is that when I pass that He will look at me and say, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant,'” she said. “If I can end my life that way, it doesn’t matter what the people say on the way there.” It’s so nice to see an example of a strong, conservative Christian woman serving her country in the White House! McEnany really is someone that young girls all over the country can look up to.
