Sim­ple Grace caught up with Fox News an­chor and for­mer Miss Amer­ica Gretchen Carl­son to ask her our fa­vorite ques­tion

Dur­ing a typ­i­cal day at a busy tele­vi­sion sta­tion, Gretchen Carl­son, Fox News Chan­nel host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carl­son, tack­les a sea of stress­ful dead­lines, harsh crit­ics and tough top­ics. But when she’s feel­ing over­whelmed or anx­ious, Gretchen says she’s just a prayer away from re­gain­ing her calm con­fi­dence. “We all face fear ev­ery day and have in­se­cu­ri­ties,” Gretchen ad­mits. “But my prayer life and my faith keep me grounded and give me the foun­da­tion to con­tinue.”

To­day, just be­fore the cam­eras started rolling, Gretchen whis­pered the Lord’s Prayer, then read the two Bi­ble verses that she al­ways has at­tached to her day book: Isa­iah 41:10, and Psalm 27:1. “I prayed, The Lord is my light and my sal­va­tion, so why would I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress pro­tect­ing me from dan­ger, so why should I trem­ble? It’s such a good pick-me-up,” she says. “It shows that we are all vul­ner­a­ble and that even when we’re not feel­ing good about our­selves, we al­ways have our faith to fall back on.” Here, Gretchen shares the prayer habits that give her courage ev­ery day.

“I’m one of the few na­tional news an­chors that speaks openly about my faith. I find it sur­pris­ing that would some­how be deemed as

a neg­a­tive.”
