Book Review - One Call Away - by Brenda Warner
“One Call Away” by Brenda Warner is the memoir Brenda Warner herself. Her story is a quite a remarkable story of strength, faith and love. When I read her book, it made me stop and really think about how lucky I am to have a wonderful husband, and 3 amazing, healthy kids. Brenda’s story was inspiring, and the book contained many valuable lessons.
Brenda had a life full of many hardships and challenges. She lived through everything bad that you can imagine. She had a son who had a terrible accident changing his life forever, a shocking revelation leading to a divorce, a time of poverty, and a terrible loss because of a natural disaster. However, she had her family to support her. And when her parents passed away, she had Kurt, who later became her husband, to help her get past her hardships. Brenda remained a strong woman, because after all, she was a marine. She worked through her issues, instead of turning from them. She, like any other human being, made several mistakes, and learned from them.
Through her book, I realized that God is truly great, and we can always turn to Him because he really cares. Overall, this was a very good book, and I would definitely recommended it to any of my friends, men or women, because it shows that through good and bad, we can (and should) always put our faith in God.
