Bronner: A Journey to Understand by Sherri Burgess

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.
My opinion: As a new Mom myself this book really was so very, very hard for me to read. Talk about heart wrenching and hard book to read. Sherri Burgess went through every Mom's nightmare, losing a beautiful child in a devastating accident. The fact that she can is able to praise God and try to find some understanding amidst her pain is a beautiful testimony and one that is so deep and rich. Full of raw emotion and honest this book is for anyone who has suffered and is trying to find purpose and peace in the middle of their suffering. Well written and hauntingly beautiful it sticks with you far after you have turned the last page.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
