Ainsley Earhardt: ‘God’s Going to Use You in a Mighty Way’
By Movieguide® Contributor
FOX & FRIENDS anchor Ainsley Earhardt is spreading an inspiring message to children through her new book, “I’m So Glad You Were Born: Celebrating Who You Are.”
“When I was growing up, my mother, on our birthdays, would say, ‘I’m so glad you were born,’ and that was her message to us. So, one day, I was on air and I said it and all of the crew and my co-anchors started laughing on FOX & FRIENDS,” Earhardt explained.
She continued, “And I said, ‘I know it sounds funny, and I know you’ve probably never heard that before, but think about it. It’s your birthday. It’s the day that you were born. It’s a very special — you’re going to contribute to this earth, to this world, and God’s going to use you in a mighty way.’”
Her new children’s book spreads that message — one that Earhardt sees as vital for all young people.
“We are going to have hard times,” she explained. “We’re going to have ups and downs in life, and you’re going to have valleys and you’re going to have mountains. But through it all, God says, ‘Take heart, I have overcome the world.’ And I love that Scripture, because it reminds me that, no matter what you’re going through, He has already overcome it.
“Even though you might want that hard experience to change or you want your future to change, take heart because, right around the corner, it will,” she continued. “But God might put you through some suffering and allow you to go through some hard times because He wants you to depend on Him and trust that He is going to make a way for you.”
Earhardt also shared how she stays close to God.
“I think just staying in the Word and being a part of a Bible study — I have an all-women Bible study and we meet on Friday mornings after the show at one of my friends’ apartments,” she shared. “And we say we pray circles around our children’s schools.
“I really feel like God chose me for this position because He wanted me to be bold and wanted me to share the Gospel,” Earhardt concluded. “And Fox allows that and now, with these children’s books, sharing the message to children to the next generation, which is so important, is just such an honor.”

“Parents and children both have big dreams—about their life and the wonders the future holds,” Earhardt’s website reads. “‘I’m So Glad You Were Born’ celebrates those dreams as well as the wonder of everyday experiences like all the sweet and special snuggles and cuddles, fun times and learning times too!”
