‘Bronner’ by Sherri Burgess and a Kindle Fire HD 6 Giveaway

Bronner: A Journey to Understand (New Hope Publishers, January 2016)
God teaches and refines us through pain and suffering. Author Sherri Burgess, wife of Rick Burgess of The Rick and Bubba Show, knows this to be true. After the earthly death of her youngest son, Bronner, Burgess asked, “Why?” And God answered.
Journey with her through this powerful testimony of healing to understand the purpose behind the pain. An empowering resource for book-club discussion or small-group Bible study, this is much more than simply a retelling of an inspiring story. It is a call to action beckoning us to know our Holy God like never before.



Sherri Burgess’ life is a beckoning for you to know a Holy God like you have never known Him before. The wife of Rick Burgess of The Rick and Bubba Show, a nationally syndicated talk radio show, Sherri is someone who now passionately pursues holiness and inspires others to do the same. A seasoned Bible teacher, writer and blogger, she has in recent years answered God’s call as a women’s ministry speaker. This mother of five stays active with her family in Birmingham, Alabama.



MY VIEW OF THIS READ:   I was super excited when this book came up for review.   I was even more excited to be chosen for this read.   I am from Alabama (just an hour and half from Birmingham) and a fan of The Rick and Bubba Show too.   

There are incidents that happen in life that are forever ingrained in it and this is one of those tragic events.   It is the life event that you know where you were, what you were doing and even what the weather was like when the word came to the Christian community about Rick and Sherri's son Bronner "Cornbread" had passed away from a tragic drowning in the family swimming pool.  The call to pray was swift and people were praying for the entire family all over the country.

I was a little apprehensive about reading this book, but it was less on the loss and more on how great God is and how everyone does grieve differently and sometimes the process takes longer than most.   I love how Sherri incorporated her testimony of coming to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.   It is a book of sorrow, loss and most importantly HOPE that not only will you see Bronner again, but you will be with him again forever.

Thank you Sherri for sharing your story with us readers and also most importantly your faith and what gives you hope.

God Bless,

Tia Johnson
