Via an interview at CBN, Governor Palin kept her incredible composure and sense of optimism as she recalled the moments of what she describes as her “toughest year” so far.
She acknowledges professional struggles while discussing her departure from FOX News:
“Some things happened that I haven’t talked about publicly, things like getting canned from a job I really liked, sort of out of the blue, because I called somebody out.
Next morning I got word, ‘Oh, we no longer need you anymore'”
She talked about struggles with family and a personal health issue. Within a few weeks of Bristol’s wedding being called off (despite being pregnant with her then-fiance’s child), the governor had a cancer scare when she was forced to have a small melanoma-like growth removed.
But despite all of it, she remained tough and optimistic:
“In the grand scheme of things, especially compared to other people going through great challenges it was not big deal,” she concluded.
“All this stuff within a few weeks’ time, it was one of those years. It’s like, ‘Okay God, what are you preparing us for this time?'”
The governor also goes on to discuss her new book, Sweet Freedom: A Devotional and discusses politics as well as Donald Trump.
