Wednesday, Teri Jendusa-Nicolai spoke publicly for the first time since the ordeal.
Officers say she was abducted from her home, beaten, and left in an unheated storage shed in Illinois. Police found her a couple of days later.
Jendusa-Nicolai says her faith and her two daughters kept her alive.
David Larson, 39, is facing kidnapping and attempted murder charges. Prosecutors may also add a murder charge, because Jendusa-Nicolai was pregnant at the time.
They say she lost the baby during the incident.
