Roma Downey turned to God during one of the most painful moments of her life. As a child, the former "Touched By an Angel" star’s mother died of a heart attack. "My mother died when I was just a little girl," the 63-year-old told Fox News Digital. "I was only 10.

And I can honestly say if we hadn’t had our faith to support us and our church community to surround us … life brought us to our knees. "But while we were down there, we prayed," the actress shared. "We prayed for strength, we prayed for understanding, we prayed for comfort.

And the Lord provided. [Faith is] central to who I am and in my work." Downey is starring in the faith-based series "The Baxters" on Amazon Prime.

It explores how a family turns to God during tough times. It features Kathie Lee Gifford, her daughter Cassidy Gifford and Ted McGinley of "Married… With Children" fame.
