Actress Jana Kramer Baptized: ‘This Is The Day I Stopped Walking Alone’

By Movieguide® Staff

Actress and singer Jana Kramer, perhaps best known for her role as Alex Dupre on the television show ONE TREE HILL, shared the news of her water baptism with the world on Sunday.

“This is my battle cry. This is the day I stopped walking alone. The beauty is… I was never alone. He was always walking with me… I just didn’t think I deserved that,” Kramer shared via Instagram.

Last April, Kramer announced the end of her marriage to former NFL star Mike Caussin. Post her public separation and divorce, involving allegations of infidelity against Caussin, Kramer shared her raw emotions and what she learned about herself and her faith.

“Looking up to a father figure with my past was hard to believe or have comfort in. I didn’t think he would stay,” she explained. “That he wouldn’t hurt me. So I pushed God away for years. The last year in the brokenness and quiet moments alone, I realized I wasn’t truly alone. That HE was there. That HE never left.”

Fans, along with fellow actresses Faith Ford, Taylor Dooley, Tori Spelling, and others, offered heartfelt support and congratulations.

Outspoken Christian actress Candace Cameron-Bure wrote: “And all the angels sang in Heaven and rejoiced! Praise His holy name!! A step in faith reaps eternal reward.”

Kramer shared the touching video and photographs from the day, surrounded by members of her church community at Cross Point Church in Franklin, Tennessee. Jamie Myatt, Franklin Kids Director, prayed and talked with Jana before her public declaration of her faith.

“Today I made my faith public and it feels really good to know no matter what happens next on this journey of life, HE is next to me walking with me,” she wrote. “God is walking with you too through all the good and bad times, so let HIM in. I hope this encourages someone to take that next step because you aren’t alone… ‘In the name of Jesus there is healing.'”

Kramer concluded her post by quoting from Lamentations 3:22-23, which reads: “The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.”
