11 Christian Celebrities You Should Know

Award-winning country singer Carrie Underwood is known for her hit songs “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Something in the Water,” but she is also candid about her faith. Over the years, Underwood has highlighted the importance of faith in her life, career and marriage.

In a 2020 with I Am Second, Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, shared how God carried them through after Underwood had three miscarriages. 

One night, after falling pregnant for the fifth time following her three miscarriages, Underwood became overwhelmed with the feeling that she was going to miscarry for the fourth time. In her despair, she recalled turning to God to have a serious and honest conversation.

“And I just had an honest conversation with God,” she said in the interview. “And I told Him how I felt. I was hurt. I was a little angry. Of course, you feel guilty for being mad at your Creator. And I told Him I needed something. … We needed to have a baby or not ever, because I couldn’t keep going down that road anymore.”

After this moment of vulnerability, Underwood went to the doctor and learned the pregnancy was going well.

“We were like … ‘This is Jacob,” Underwood recalled thinking when she and Fisher saw their baby in an ultrasound.

The Jacob of the Old Testament, Fisher notes, “wrestled with God through the night and he wouldn’t let go until he got his blessing.”

“We weren’t demanding that He give us His blessing. We were just being honest with Him. Jeremiah 29:13 says, ‘You will seek Me and find Me when you seek me with all your heart.’ It’s so true.”

“So many times, you’re on the mountaintops and things are great. And sometimes those are the hardest times because you don’t feel like you need God. And then you go through the valleys and you actually really seek Him and His will. That’s when you learn and grow and He changes you. He changes our marriage for the better. We were able to kind of work through our faith together like we’ve never done before,” Fisher added.

Jacob Fisher was born on January 21, 2019.

In 2021, Underwood’s faith was again on display when she released a gospel album called My Savior.

“I’m lucky enough that I feel like I’ve been making spiritual music along the way in my career. I love the sassy stuff, and I love to get an attitude and get dressed up and do all that stuff. But it’s so nice to be able to sing songs like this. It’s such a great time to just really slow down and be super intentional about what I’m doing. It’s not about the bigger, better thing. It’s about the smaller thing, the thing that’s inside of me,” Underwood told the Associated Press when talking about the album.

The album, which includes contemporary takes on classic hymns such as “Great Is Thy Faithfulness,” “The Old Rugged Cross” and “Amazing Grace,” debuted as number 1 on the Billboard Country and Christian Charts. At its height, it also took the number 4 spot on the Billboard 200 chart.
