Book Review: One Call Away: A Memoir by Brenda Warner

One Call Away:  A Memoir
by Brenda Warner

About the Book:
"Brenda’s life has taken twists and turns that are stranger than fiction. It always seemed as if she was just one phone call away from the next explosive change. Each time her plans fell apart, she had a choice: would she give up, or would she press forward and learn from the unexpected? One Call Away is the inspiring story of a woman who has prevailed through many of the circumstances that discourage women: tragedy, poverty, betrayal, and humiliation. But unlike most women, her life has been on display in the media.
Brenda’s faith and God’s strength enable her to face challenge after challenge: an accident that leaves her son blind and brain damaged, a crumbling marriage, a tornado that kills her parents, a new relationship with promising football player Kurt Warner, and the pressures his sudden success brings to their growing family.
Through food stamps and funerals, Super Bowls and serving others, Brenda’s strength is unwavering. Her determination to dream new dreams, willingness to learn from her mistakes, and commitment to giving back to her community make her a role model for women of all backgrounds.
Her dreams haven’t materialized as she had imagined, but Brenda has found that God has a much bigger plan for her. Conversational and candid, One Call Away invites readers facing their own difficulties to trust God and discover hope in the future."

My Review:
I read Brenda's husband Kurt Warner's book "First Things First:  The Rules of Being a Warner" not to long ago and was intrigued by Brenda's story, so when I got the opportunity to check out her book "One call Away:  A Memoir by Brenda Warner" I knew I wanted to read it.  I was not dissappointed.  Brenda's story is one of conviction, tragedy and triumph.  Her faith in God helped her to overcome some of life's most difficult issues and even thrive in the life that she has created for her children and herself.  A great inspiring story that has alot of sadness but alot of realizations that are extremely uplifting.  A great read that is hard to put down once you get started.

*I received a complimentary copy of the book featured in this post via BookSneeze for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.
