Mike fischer dating carrie underwood
Long before Mike Fisher became famously known as “Carrie Underwood’s husband” (a title he’s no doubt proud to hold), the NHL veteran had earned a well-deserved reputation as one of hockey’s hardest working players.
After 10 full seasons with the Ottawa Senators, Fisher was traded mid-season to Nashville last year where his country music star wife resides.
Fisher: Yeah, even with just my teammates, I’ve been able to be an example for those guys that aren’t even married yet and showing them God’s way to date properly and how to do the right things. I’ve been on the wrong side of it and done it the wrong way and fortunately with my wife, we did it the right way and God has really blessed that. Chad has been working in mass media for over 20 years.
That’s allowed me to help some other guys along the way. Chad’s professional journey began at the University of Tulsa where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts (1993) while working extensively in athletic media relations and serving as a sports editor for The Collegian.
God’s given me this talent and ability and this platform.
The worst thing to do is to blow that off and not give the right people credit. My faith has been a big part of growing up into who I am and who I’m trying to become.
Chad is currently working on five new books including Sooner Legacy, Husker Legacy and Lessons From Sooner Football (Cross Training) as well as The Faith of Stock Car Racing (Judson Press).
What does it mean to have a relationship with Jesus?Hopefully I can be a good light in the hockey world and promote faith as something that’s really real.Bonham: What message do you hope sinks in the hearts of the young people that read this book?He allowed me to be drafted close to home and then the trade happened. We can doubt the Lord when we go through tough times, but you know that He’s always got your best interest at heart.I didn’t ask for the trade or want to leave but it was probably the best things that could ever happen because of Carrie and I. We’d lost 11 in a row before I got traded and things were a little dicey. After the trade, my mom told me a day before I got traded that she thought, “Well maybe the season isn’t going so well for Mike so he can get traded to Nashville and be with Carrie.” She called it. When you see the overall picture afterwards, you’re like, “Why did I even doubt?
How sobering of a thought is it that you are biblically responsible to be the spiritual leader of your marriage and how seriously do you take that responsibility? We’re both doing this thing together but I take it seriously that we make sure we’re encouraging each other and praying together and growing spiritually. The closer we feel to God, the closer we feel to each other.
