Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has opened up about her personal struggles.
In her book “Serenity in the Storm: Living Through Chaos by Leaning on Christ,” McEnany reveals the dark and troubling times she and her husband had trying to have a second child.
The book goes on sale on May 2.
She said on social media: “Daily Mail published an early excerpt from my book about my second pregnancy, which didn’t come as easy as my first.
“It was a great learning lesson and faith journey for us.
“As I wrote, ‘For millions of women, struggles with pregnancy occur for far longer than a few months, and for some, pregnancy is simply not possible, even though they pray with hopeful expectation and faith, as Sean and I did. My heart breaks for these women, and I imagine the struggle can be incomprehensible. Why did God answer my prayers? I do not have an answer, for we will never know God’s mysteries in full while here on earth.’
“But I do know that Philippians 4:6-7 promises that God will bring peace to the faithful even when our prayers are not answered:
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

She writes in the book:
“My first pregnancy happened rather quickly, and we felt blessed that God had given us a beautiful daughter with relative ease.
“The second time around was different.
“Several months passed, and negative pregnancy tests were ample.
“As spring of 2022 approached, part of me began to worry.
“Why wasn’t I getting pregnant? I attempted to overcome worry by leaning on faith.
“As I tried to pray with expectation, Satan did his best to infiltrate with worry, doubt, and frustration.”
After reading Mark Batterson’s “Draw The Circle: The 40-Day Prayer Challenge,” McEnany said she started to “pray with expectation,” but it wasn’t easy.
“We have a tendency to expect immediate results,” she writes.
“That is a natural human inclination, one that I certainly fall into myself.
“As I tried to pray with expectation, Satan did his best to infiltrate with worry, doubt, and frustration,” she said.
