Brittany Lutz Reflects on Depression, Pain and God’s Healing Three Years after Miscarriage

By Movieguide® Contributor

Brittany Lutz, wife of actor Kellan Lutz, reflected on dealing with depression during the days around the three-year anniversary of her miscarriage and how God has worked through the pain to bring healing. 

“The last handful of days I’ve been battling what I can only describe as depression. It has been debilitating, painful and SO frustrating,” Lutz shared in a recent Instagram post. 

“I didn’t want to get out of bed. I didn’t want to eat. I’ve had no energy for my family or myself. I’ve felt hopeless and this heaviness looming over me. And worst of all, I’ve had this overwhelming, constant grief. I prayed, I rebuked, I worshipped, I praised…and I still felt it.”

Movieguide® previously reported, “In February 2020, the couple announced the tragic news that they had lost their baby seven months into Brittany’s pregnancy.”

Now, busy with a one-year-old and five-month-old, Lutz hadn’t realized that the anniversary was approaching until a follower messaged her, saying she was praying for them. 

“Immediately the flood gates opened,” Lutz wrote. “All in the same moment I felt an intense sharp pain in my heart and yet a release and lightness washed over me. She didn’t even know it but she helped me name my pain.” 

“I’ve been so busy with a 5 month old and almost 2 year old I didn’t even realize 3 years ago today was the worst day of my life. But my body remembered,” she added.

“For days I’ve been asking God to take the pain away but I realize now what I should have been asking Him is to help me identify my pain because He can’t always heal what isn’t revealed.”

“It was actually in His kindness He didn’t take my pain away because He wanted to heal my heart. When we heal we overcome and what we overcome we have authority over,” she explained.

Lutz shared Psalm 34:17-18 with her followers, which reads, “When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. 

“It will likely still be an emotional day for me,” Lutz reflected. “But I can’t tell you how much peace I have moving forward today knowing my body wasn’t fighting me this last week but was actually trying to protect me from an impact it remembered from January 30th, 2020.”

She encouraged her followers to “Name your pain” and thanked God for the work he continues to do in her life.

“Thank you Jesus for continuing to heal [my] body, mind and soul. I’m praying that if you need it, you let Him to heal you too.”

Brittany Lutz is celebrating her family in a new Instagram post and reminiscing on the ups and downs she and husband, actor Kellan Lutz, have faced over the past few years.

“He redeems. He restores. He heals. He surpasses our wildest dreams,” she started the caption of a series of pictures of the Lutz family.

Her caption continued:

3 years ago I was told I couldn’t get pregnant (fibroids + endometriosis) but God directed my steps and used an incredible dr who made it possible. 

2 years ago I lost my precious miracle baby girl who I carried for 27 weeks and had so many plans and dreams for. Then due to complications it is a miracle that I am alive and that I didn’t have to have an emergency hysterectomy to save my life. 

1 year ago I gave birth to my hilarious, spunky, little beach babe Ashtyn. 

And this year we added our sweet, cuddly chunky monkey Kasen. 

These photos aren’t just sweet family memories. They are visible, tangible proof of God’s goodness and faithfulness. 

“If you’re going through a difficult season there is hope and happiness on the other side,” Lutz concluded. “But the only way to get to the other side is to go through. You’re stronger than you know. You’re not alone. Don’t give up. Keep going.”
