Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said Tuesday she believes God doesn't want her to let her talents go to waste, so she would consider running for a public office again.

Palin said her creator has given her a "passion for this country" in an interview with Fox News Radio conservative host Brian Kilmeade while promoting her new book, "Sweet Freedom:  A Devotional."

Amazon's description of the book indicates Palin hopes readers draw strength and inspiration from 260 meditations based on Biblical verses. "You are not alone in your doubts and anxieties - we all bear the burdens of everyday stresses, and for most of us, our concerns spread beyond ourselves to our families, communities, and country," it states.

"But Palin shows that with abiding faith, and by opening ourselves to the truths that have saved mankind for generations, we can thrive - and experience true freedom."

Palin told Kilmeade she did the book because people frequently ask her in "this worried world" what to do in "these tumultuous times." She said there are answers in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible for all issues that everyone faces.

She said religion clicked with her from growing up in a "very active, competitive Irish Catholic family during the Jesus movement of the 70s." She also said that at that time, her mother tuned into the Billy Graham crusades, due to seeking a more personal relationship with God. She then led the rest of her family to the faith.

"God has a way of driving us to our knees, to keep us humble, to keep us focused on Him. I can't survive a day without it," said Palin.

Palin said God's talents are "not put in us to frustrate us or tease us, or to just sit on those interests or those gifts of talent - but they're to put us on a road toward fulfillment, toward productivity, ultimately helping other people. And I know that built within me is certainly passion for this country."

Kilmeade asked Palin whether she was considering a bid for one of Alaska's Senate seats, but her answer was that she wasn't sure in which office she'd be most interested to make the most difference.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said on CBS's "Sunday Morning," she would be "willing" to throw her hat in the ring, and in a "Good Morning America" interview on Tuesday, she said God would show her the way forward politically.

"Living my life, putting it in God's hands, you just never know what door may be opened," Palin said. "And if that door was opened, I'm built to run through it."
