Fox Anchor: 'God Wanted Me to Be Bold and Share the Gospel'

"Fox & Friends" co-anchor Ainsley Earhardt has become a familiar face in TV news, but her children's books are also inspiring kids and families to see God's power in their lives.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." That popular Scripture, Jeremiah 29:11, is at the heart of Earhardt's new project, "I'm So Glad You Were Born: Celebrating Who You Are," a children's book inspired by a faith-affirming message from her own childhood.

"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 told "The 700 Club." 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.'"

Watch Earhardt discuss her latest book:

That's a biblical message of purpose and meaning Earhardt has passed on to her own daughter as well, and one she's now bringing to the masses with the release of "I'm So Glad You Were Born," encouraging people to find their worth in the Lord, and to persist and triumph through difficult times.

We asked Earhardt why it's so important that we remind people at an early age that they do have a God-ordained purpose.

"Because we are going to have hard times," she replied. "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."

Earhardt says she's honored God has chosen her to share His message with adults and children alike.

"I really feel like God chose me for this position because He wanted me to be bold and wanted me to share the Gospel," she said. "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."
