The Christian Post has documented Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' pursuit of faith before a first child was born to his wife, Casey, following an earlier miscarriage.
During an interview at the FAMILY Leader's Thanksgiving Family forum, he explained:
“We were married, doing our thing. I was in the Navy, my wife was busy as a TV reporter, and we wanted to have a family, and it didn’t happen at first,” he said. Then after a trip to Israel, "We prayed, we prayed a lot to have a family, and then, lo and behold, we go back to the United States, and a little time later, we … got pregnant."
TRENDING: Are you a hypocrite? Or just human?
That first baby, however, was lost.
"We just kept the faith, we just kept praying. We knew that there would be a path that God would lead us on, and lo and behold … a short time after ... we had our first baby girl."

But now a report at the National Pulse explains how when he was inaugurated as governor in 2019, his staff "scrambled" to buy a Bible.
His family apparently didn't have one.
"The King James Bible, held during the inauguration by the governor’s wife Casey DeSantis, was purchased by staff from Jeff Bezos’s Amazon.com for $21.74 and shipped to Florida’s Republican Party headquarters," the report said. "The revelation that DeSantis did not own a family Bible – at least in 2019 – casts a degree of doubt on his current presidential campaign’s framing of the governor as a staunch Christian and culture warrior. The DeSantis campaign has focused heavily on outreach to Evangelical Christians, though DeSantis himself is ostensibly Catholic," the report charged.
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Shortly after Hamas terrorists fired over 5,000 rockets from Gaza into Israel on Oct. 7 and then proceeded to attack the Jewish state by land, sea and air – torturing, burning, beheading and murdering well over a thousand people, including women, children and infants, and wounding and abducting hundreds more – world reaction was, in its own way, almost equally shocking.
For after the biggest one-day mass slaughter of Jews since the Nazi Holocaust, what followed was an outpouring of celebratory demonstrations, unbridled Jew-hatred, deliriously gleeful support for Hamas and bitter condemnation of the nation of Israel. Not just in the Arab-Muslim world, but throughout the Western world as well, including all across America.
Why? What is behind the explosion of anti-Israel, anti-Jewish, pro-terror sentiment in the United States, where Israel has long been one of America's closest friends and allies? Why are hordes of young "woke" LGBT demonstrators marching in support of Hamas – when Hamas wouldn't think twice about binding and blindfolding them and throwing them off the roof of a tall building – as they routinely do in the Muslim world?
It turns out there's one area of agreement that is so powerful, deep-seated and all-consuming that the vast differences between the deranged left and the murderous jihadists melt away into Kumbaya harmony.
All of this and much more is completely exposed in November's issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled ISRAEL VS. GLOBAL JIHAD: How Jew-hatred, radical Islam and Leftism are pushing us toward World War III. Beyond a deeply insightful dive into why leftists are surging toward radical Islam – which hates and dreams of raping and butchering them – this Whistleblower issue includes fantastic articles by everyone from top Israeli analyst (and former Israel Defense Forces officer) Caroline Glick to Harvest Christian Fellowship's Pastor Greg Laurie on the current war in Israel and biblical prophecies regarding the End Times … which he says are now upon us.
