Natalie Grant Explains Why She Went to Church First After Finding Out Her Mother Had a Heart Attack on Sunday Morning

Award-winning singer Natalie Grant took to social media on Tuesday to share that her mother had suffered a heart attack, and while her first instinct was to hop on a plane to be by her mom’s side, she first went to church.

“Very early this past Sunday morning, my dad called to tell me my mom had a heart attack. Living far from my family has never been easy, but it’s never been harder than it was in that moment,” Grant wrote on Instagram Tuesday.

The soulful singer admitted feeling “paralyzed” and not knowing what to do because her mother lives in Seattle, Washington, and she lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

“How serious is it? Is she OK? Should I fly home? I gathered my girls and Bernie and we prayed. And then we decided to go to church cuz I sure couldn’t think of a better place to be in that moment,” Grant explained.

Very early this past Sunday morning, my dad called to tell me my mom had a heart attack. Living far from my family has never been easy, but it’s never been harder than it was in that moment. I remember feeling paralyzed, not knowing exactly what to do. How serious is it? Is she ok? Should I fly home? I gathered my girls and Bernie and we prayed. And then we decided to go to church cuz I sure couldn’t think of a better place to be in that moment. One thing was certain, I had zero control over my mom’s situation, but being with my church family and worshipping the One who’s in complete control brought such comfort and hope. I’m so forever grateful for answered prayer, and our faithful God. Mom is doing well. 🙌🏼 The doctors have identified some problems which they say are reversible, hallelujah! Would you say a prayer for my momma’s continued recovery, for her heart to be restored to full function, and wisdom for the doctors to know how to move forward from here? Walking in to her hospital room today, finally making it to her arms, I burst in to tears and laughter all at the same time. Nothing like a hug from your momma. ❤️
