Nockels and her husband Nathan experienced two back-to-back miscarriages and the singer describes how that shaped her into the woman she is today.

“In 1999 and 2000, Nathan and I experienced two miscarriages pretty much back to back, about seven or eight months apart,” says Christy in a new video on the Desiring God ministry’s website. “Of course it was our first try at having children, and there’s a lot of fear that starts to come around that, because you think if there’s something wrong with my body… am I ever going to be able to have kids.”

The video has been posted as an example of what preacher and author John Piper shared in his latest message on “indomitable joy in Jesus in the very midst of suffering and sorrow.”

“The first miscarriage was physically painful, the second we just kind of had to wait it out and see,” the Texas-born musician said. However, God not only gave her healing, but also a precious realization.

“In remembering it, it’s been so good for me to sort of relive that in a way of realizing that He really entrusts you with the suffering so that you can later share Him,” Christy said. “I think that has been a beautiful part of realizing what that season was for. Had I never experienced that, I would never have been able to comfort others in the way I have been able to comfort them because of how God comforted me through that, and how the body of Christ came around us in that time.”

Christy recalled when she learned she was pregnant with their first child, Noah, who is now 12 years old, she was driving her car. Christy and Nathan were at the time recording a song called, “Glory Baby,” which she started writing after the first miscarriage, but could go only as far as the first line, which read, “Glory Baby, you slipped away as fast as we could say baby.” But God helped her continue writing the song after the second miscarriage, and finish it after a time of healing.
