Actress and new mom Kelly Preston says her religion helped her through the sudden death of her 16-year-old son, Jett, who lost his in a seizure in January 2009.


Preston told Health magazine in their September issue, "To be honest, [it was] the Scientology Center. I don't know if I would have made it through without it." She learned to not "sweat the small things" and now appreciates life every day. "Love your kids like it could be the last moment."

After two years, Preston and husband John Travolta had another baby boy, Benjamin Hunter Kaleo, born in November 2010. The couple also has a daughter Ella Bleu, 11.

Motherhood, Preston told Health, is the single most important role she's ever tackled. "I've always wanted to be a mother, ever since I was 11. I was doing commercials for thousands of dollars, but I'd still babysit for $3 an hour just because I loved it."
