Sherri Burgess' life is a beckoning for you to know a Holy God like you have never known Him before.


God teaches and refines us through pain and suffering.


The words of this book have truly left me speechless. Only the power and grace of God could sustain and bring comfort in the deepest of hurt.

— CHRIS TOMLIN, Grammy Award-winning Christian recording artist

No one escapes life unscathed. Everyone faces tragedy. Rick and Sherri did. They did so with faith. We are wise to learn from their example. Their story inspires us to face our challenges by facing God first.

— MAX LUCADO, New York Times best-selling author

Bronner is a deep look into the heart of a mother who chases hard after the heart of her Heavenly Father, who has clung to Him in the darkest of nights and found Him so very faithful. Sherri's words have touched me in the deepest parts of my heart and spirit, and there's not a doubt in my mind that the Lord will convict, inspire, and challenge through Sherri's obedience to tell His story. Beautifully written, Christ-centered, and saturated with Truth, Bronner is truly an offering to the Lord and to the Body of Christ. You'll be changed after you read it. I know I have been.

— SOPHIE HUDSON, author of Home is Where My People Are and A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet

Burgess will have changed the immediate and long term futures of readers all over the world. This book will have eternal consequences. It is the best of it's genre. It has no peer.


Bronner tells the heart-wrenching but ultimately encouraging story of God’s steadfast love for the Burgess family during its darkest hour. This book testifies to how the Lord gave them ‘a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. (Isaiah 61:3)

— JIM DALY, President of Focus on the Family

As a quadriplegic, I have often said, 'God permits what he hates to accomplish that which he loves.' My friends Rick and Sherri understand that hard truth so painfully well – in this remarkable book, they show us that true wisdom is not the ability to figure out God's plan and purpose in a horrible tragedy; wisdom is simply trusting Him, even when all seems dark. It's why Bronner is such a wise and good guide in your journey to grasp God's goodness in your pain. Read it and you will be blessed!
