Carrie has even recorded a number of songs with faithful influences, including “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Something in the Water.”
Now, the couple is opening up about their faith, as well as their family, in a new short film titled Mike and Carrie: God & Country.
The four-part film will air new episodes every week starting on May 27. Those interested in hearing Carrie and Mike’s story can view the film on iamsecond.com.
I Am Second is a nonprofit that shares interviews with celebrities about their faith and how it has impacted their life. Mike was previously the subject of one of I Am Second’s “White Chair Film” projects in 2014.
Now, I Am Second is helping share Mike and Carrie’s story as a couple, and how their faith has helped them navigate some trying times in the lives. A trailer for their four-part film was released on May 25, and shows the couple reflecting on the highs and lows of their marriage.
It starts with Carrie talking about how as a child, she swore she’d never date someone who was a hunter. Carrie, who is now a vegetarian, of course ended up with Mike, who not only hunts, but has his own line of hunting apparel.
“We just differ, drastically,” Carrie is heard saying in the trailer.
Then, the two begin talking about their family. They share sons Isaiah (age five) and Jacob (age one). Carrie admits that Mike was always the one that wanted the big family, while she could not imagine herself being good with kids.
However, that all changed when Isaiah was born. “I was like, oh my gosh, I’m in love,” Carrie says in the trailer.
The trailer then takes an heartbreaking turn, as Carrie and Mike talk about their journey to conceive their second child. Carrie suffered three miscarriages from 2017-2018 before becoming pregnant with their youngest son, Jacob.
“You have all these mountaintops,” Mike says in the trailer. “But we hadn’t had a ton of valleys like this.”
Carrie recalls having an “honest conversation with God” about their many losses, and says her faith helped pull her through that incredibly sad time in her and Mike’s lives.
