I have to admit that once I started reading this book I could not hardly put it down. Brenda is married to Kurt Warner who was an NFL quarter back that is now retired. I know it takes alot for a person to be as honest about details of their like like she was. Not judging her but at times she seemed alittle stuck on her self. She mentions that she was always know as the "pretty one" more than a few times. I know she had to have strong faith to endure some of the hardships that she faced but at times wondered if she would really put God first what would of been the outcome. She and her first husband have a son Zack who is left disabled after an accident under the father's care. When she is eight months pregnant with her daughter he has an affair. Having a troubled marriage any way she leaves him. She shares her struggles being a single mom, the death of her parents in a tornado, and believe it or not coping with being famous and a millionaire, as well as the miscarriages of two babies. There were a few times when I was left hangin on story lines that didn't finish. Like her grandmother, Chach. She was mentioned but you never knew what happened to her. I also wondered about the first two children's father, but at the end she did fill us in on the children's relationship now with him. The pictures that were added were a nice touch to the story, I found myself looking either forward or back at them often. I am glad that she does speak out about her faith as mentioned. I was alittle disappointed at the lack of references to God and His Holy Word. She and Kurt have a foundation called "First Things First". Together they do wonderful things like furnishing homes for low income single mothers and rock babies who have no one to love them. The most touching part of the book for me was when she held Daniel into the arms of Jesus. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs encouragement to go on when times get difficult.
