First Things First by Kurt & Brenda Warner

July 2009

Book Description:
If you think you know everything there is to know about Kurt and Brenda Warner, think again.

For instance, did you know . . .
Kurt has to pay his own son to toss the football with him in the backyard?
before she met Kurt, Brenda spent several years in the United States Marine Corps, working in Intelligence?
none of the Warner kids really wanted to go see their dad play in Super Bowl XLIII?
the last time Kurt saw his Super Bowl ring was when the cleaning lady pulled it out from under the living room couch along with a stack of Legos, a handful of Cheerios, and a half-used stick of Brenda's deodorant?

First Things First is an intimate, no-holds-barred look at life inside the crazed and chaotic Warner household. Speaking from a his-and-hers perspective, Kurt and Brenda talk candidly about their marriage, the values they are working to instill in their kids, things they've done right, mistakes they've made along the way, the importance of giving back, and the lasting legacy they hope to leave behind.

Meet the Authors:

Kurt Warner:
Kurt Warner is a retired American football player. He played quarterback for three NFL teams, the St. Louis Rams, the New York Giants, and the Arizona Cardinals. He was originally signed by the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent in 1994, after playing college football at Northern Iowa where he did not start until his senior year. Warner would go on to be considered the best undrafted player of all time,[following a 12-year career regarded as one of the greatest stories in NFL history.

Brenda Warner:
Brenda was a US Marine at the age of 18.
She learned the blessings and pressures of fame and fortune being married to an NFL superstar by the age of 30. New York Times best-selling author Brenda Warner is often encompassed by the meteoric rise of her husband, NFL QB Kurt Warner, but when it comes to stories of tribulation, perseverance, and inspiration she need not take a back seat to anyone. Her life has been an ongoing roller coaster ride of peaks and valleys, but her character has remained unblemished along the way, due to an unwavering faith.



 First Things First was a very easy read. It gave you a first hand look into the life of the Warner's. I'm kind of embarrassed to say that I really knew nothing about Kurt or Brenda Warner before I read this book. I'm the kind of person that doesn't really watch the game unless my team is winning. LOL. However, just by reading this book I feel like I know who the are better than I ever could by watching the game on T.V. .  I really enjoyed reading this book! They are a Christian family with many helpful suggestions for family life.  There isn't much information on his football career included in First Things First because it's mostly about his family and charity work.  
What do I love MOST about this book? 
I love that each chapter begins with Kurt's point of view and then switches to Brenda's point of view. I love to see each of their point of views and how they use them to successfully work together.
This is a very inspirational book, one that I HIGHLY recommend.
