Savannah Guthrie, co-host of “The Today Show,” sat down with Guideposts to talk about her faith and motherhood.
During the interview, Guthrie, who recently became a mom following the birth of her daughter Vale, shares how her faith affects her life as a mother more than anything else. She told the magazine, “My faith is one of the most important things in my life.”
She goes on to say, “There’s a great Bible verse that says ‘Children are an inheritance from the Lord.’ And, I think that, that says it so perfectly. That to have a baby is the ultimate blessing…I never forget the source of that blessing.”
She also shared how motherhood and having a child brought about a blessed but “frightening” vulnerability. She said that the only antidote to the vulnerability of motherhood was to “Trust that God holds her in His hands and that there is a power greater than me that will ensure that she’s okay.”
Finally, she shared that she believes her most important responsibility as a mother is “to introduce her [Vale] to God.”
