I love seeing a public figure who isn't ashamed to show his Faith in God and not care how others view him for it. I enjoyed reading how he fought through not being the starting qb and I especially enjoyed the Bible verses at the beginning of each chapter.he points the reader to God's word for truth and healing. Knowing that our creative God uses all different places of beauty for us to see our Creator, she provides the reader with additional study through suggested music listening, art, meaningful quotes...
Still, this book is filled with beautiful poetry, and her life story will definitely inspire many. It would help explain a lot of what is going on early in this story because it doesn't make sense to me. I'm sure it is a good read with the foundation of the first book. I've tried and tried to read and decided to give up. I don't generally have this problem with a book and I feel kinda bad about it, but that's how it is for me.I've tried and tried to read and decided to give up.

The book could not have come at a better time for me to read, as I gained perspective. Amazing, inspirational, encouraging are just a few of the many words that could be used to describe this book. This is a book that I will read again and again.
"When people approach me, they often start the conversation in the same way. â€˜Are You Kurt Warner's wife?' These days, in answer, I hold out my hand and say, â€˜My name is Brenda.'"
In this gritty account of the wife of the former NFL quarterback who led three teams to the Super Bowl, Brenda Warner captures that same spirit in writing. She extends a hand, and flashing a confident, authentic smile, invites us into the heart of who she is as a human being first, a celebrity second.
Prophetically, we learn that she was a charmer and a cheerleader, qualities that characterize her life today. But what could appear as a Cinderella syndrome is, in reality, a journey marked by tragedy and trauma. The God to whom she was introduced in the sixth grade, was the One who held her firmly throughout the ensuing years, and to Whom she would turn again and again. She is unabashedly candid about her fears and failures and just as quick to attribute her triumphs to his faithfulness.
The story of Brenda and Kurt's romance is delightful, though a bit stormy. If you enjoy a little drama with a happy ending, this is for you.
Today the Warners operate their own foundation "_dedicated to impacting live by promoting Christian values, sharing experiences and providing opportunities to encourage everyone that all things are possible when people seek to put â€˜first things first'." With many facets to the organization, one of her favorite projects is furnishing empty houses which have been provided to individuals by partner organizations. Brenda remembers a day when she was in need of the same.
Contemporary autobiographies are not the type of book I am typically drawn to, and it did seem to lag a bit near the end. Nonetheless it was a pleasant read, [mostly] fast-paced and earthy with a 16-page section of full-color photos. My teenaged granddaughter read it, as did my 50-plus husband and both were captivated. I suspect you will be too.
Brenda Warner takes us backstage into her life; her hard days as a wife and mom, and her triumphs. She relates her actions to her faith. It is refreshing to be a part of her vulnerability as she weaves her life experiences and her efforts to be the best she can be with her desire to please God.
This was a great read, moved along quickly, and was definitely hard to put down.
I was sometimes irritated at her glossing over of her lack of remorse for some of those things in her life that were regrettable. This came across to me as 'no big deal'. But it also reminds me that I need to be more aggressive in this area also. I definitely was turned off several times by her casualness toward her obedience to God. But, then again, I must take this to heart in my own life.
Good read, moved along quickly 5/5 stars.
Christian truths and application, 2/5 stars.
