Book Review: One Call Away

One Call Away: Answering Life's Challenges with Unshakable Faith by Brenda Warner is the life story of Brenda Warner, wife of NFL MVP Kurt Warner. She tells her life story from childhood to now. Her story of loss, love, life changes, and challenges physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Her story is such a testament of how God always has a plan and how the saddest and most challenging things in life still have a purpose.

I found this story so moving. Brenda has overcome so much in her life. The thing I really like about this book is that she was real in it. She said when she made a mistake and regretted it. She showed her flaws and strengths in each situation. Most of all I am amazed that through everything she was able to keep her faith in God strong. She may have wondered why something happened but she never questioned God for being wrong.

I also love the story of Kurt's life in her story. His personality, integrity, and spiritual strength throughout his life is amazing. I love how he came to be a Christian and her view of it. I love his steadfast commitment to his faith when he did make the decision. Fame and Fortune did not change him or corrupt him.

I truly find in their story that all things are possible and that God really is always in control. This book is not always easy to read (i was very stressed out while reading the tragic story of her son. I felt like I was going through it with her) but it is very hard to put down.

I recommend this book... to everyone. Especially if you are a mother you will identify with her in so many ways.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book to read and review through These opinions are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
