One Call Away

Kindle version here:

Brenda Warner is a woman who doesn’t know the meaning of “quit”.  And it’s a good thing, because she’s had plenty of opportunities in life to give up.  As I read One Call Away, I was amazed at Brenda’s determination and persistence when life gave her nothing but lemons. 

Her training as a Marine and headstrong DNA, prepared her for the tragedies that life had in store.  Her faith in God motivated her to keep fighting life through in spite of insurmountable circumstances.  And her love for Kurt Warner kept her through the hardest of times when Kurt’s career and quick rise to fame shook the very core of their relationship.

You don’t have to be a football fan to enjoy this book.   This is Brenda’s story and she writes very openly and honestly about her flaws, imperfections, struggles and failures.   Throughout this book, I felt like I was reading a modern day story of Job – right down to the blessings at the end of his life.

Inspirational and motivational – Brenda Warner is a great example of a woman who doesn’t give up.


Book Description

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.
