Headline for Book Review: Fighting for Faith
When http://booksneeze.com let me do free book review on this book I had no idea who Brenda Warner was! She is married to Kurt Warner; Kurtis Eugene “Kurt” Warner (born June 22, 1971) is a retired American football player.
Brenda shares her struggles and faith to overcome her tragedies in her own life and they include:
- Her Baby injured in an accident
- Ended her Marine Career
- Her unfaithful spouse and divorce
- Life as a single mother living off the government to help her live with a disabled child.
- Natural disasters: a lesson of how short life is when loved ones are tragically taken away.
- Her dreams coming true with Kurt Warner and the struggles of dating a NFL player.
I could identify myself is many of the struggles that Brenda went through. One of the things I can identify with is the need to date or marry a Christian man of faith. In the beginning of her first marriage to Neil they had different faith’s that in the end led to arguments. Brenda had a son named Zachary with Neil and later had a beautiful daughter Jesse Jo. Brenda struggles to stay strong during her trials with her disabled son but prevails. If God is the foundation of a relationship, with prayer all things are possible.
In Chapter five I learned a lot about the U.S. Marines and what they had to do which I did not know before. The Marines are a much disciplined unit of individuals; Brenda had a dream to be like her father who was a Marine. She set her mind to become a Drill Instructor. She was second in her class of graduation and was sent to Intelligence for the Marines, which was not exactly what she had planned.
The foundation of support is so important in our daily lives and Brenda had her parents and her sister Kim to help her along her way in life. Whenever she would need a helping hand or encouragement, her family supported her. After her divorce from her unfaithful husband she moved back home and started her life over with a fresh start. Her mom and church friends went to Coyote’s Bar to line dance as they all had the desire to have fun this way. This is the way Brenda met her current husband Kurt Warner and the story unfolds in such a beautiful way that I could not put the book down. I read this book in two days and it blessed me beyond what I can express.
