Author finds meaning in the midst of incredible loss

Sherri Burgess learns after her son’s death there are answers to life’s toughest questions

12/17/2015 || Seattle: If God is good then why does He allow terrible things to happen? It’s a universal question asked by believers and skeptics alike. Some decide no answer exists, but not Sherri Burgess, the author of Bronner: A Journey to Understand (New Hope Publishers/January 19, 2016/ISBN: 978-1-62591-500-9/$16.99). When Burgess and her husband, Rick (host of the nationally syndicated “The Rick and Bubba Show”), lost their two-year-old son in a tragic drowning at home, she turned to God with the same question, and in her grief, learned there are answers. What she discovered about the Lord and herself she now brings to the world in this special book, which Grammy Award-winning recording artist Chris Tomlin said left him “speechless.”

Bronner is an honest and personal narrative that took Burgess five years to write. It brings readers along on her journey of seeking to understand the purpose behind her family’s pain. While admitting we can never truly grasp all aspects of God’s nature, Burgess says she found there were many things she could ascertain about Him, His purposes, and His intentions for herself and her family. “God wants us to ask hard questions,” she reveals. “He wants us to seek Him, and if we do, He promises we will find Him. God’s way is perfect. He wastes nothing but uses everything to teach us, grow us, and mold us into something fit for heaven. We praise Him as Job did when he said, ‘The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken way; blessed be the name of the Lord.’”

Scripture says Christians do not mourn like those who have no hope, and that is certainly the case for Burgess and her family. While they are separated from little Bronner for now, Burgess knows that won’t always be the case. She points out with incredible hope that no matter what horror or loss we face, if Christ is our Savior, we are assured He will redeem everything in time, whether in this life or the next.

Much more than a retelling of one family’s story, Bronner includes a readers’ guide that will be an empowering and in-depth resource for grief support groups, book-club discussions, or small-group Bible studies. Readers will learn how the author believes the Lord has used suffering for good in her life: teaching her, refining her, and even helping her overcome sins such as worldliness, self-reliance, and pride. “There are but two ways to go in a situation like this,” Burgess writes. “We can either run away from God and be destroyed by the pain, or run to Him and be transformed by it into the person He really desires for us to be. God has taught—and is still teaching—me so much through my pain.”

Regardless of what hardship readers have experienced, Bronner will be a call to action, beckoning them to know God like never before. Burgess’s personal hope is that Bronner will help others understand God doesn’t do anything to hurt them, but He allows suffering to occur in life to form them into the people He meant for them to be: people who love and trust Him with a devotion that can withstand any trial.

Reviews
  • ‘BRONNER’

    Bronner was not Sherri’s way of just retelling the painful story of the death of her child, it is the Journey one can take when you understand the why behind God’s actions.

    I highly recommend this book, not just for someone who has lost a child, but to anyone who wants to understand that Jesus Christ is ours, all we must do is ask. Then He can lead us through our lives, with no matter what troubles we face.

  • REVIEW OF ‘BRONNER’ BY SHERRI BURGESS

    I personally want to think Sherri Burgess for writing this book and for God sending it to me exactly when I needed it. When my mom went home I screamed and yelled and even for a moment blamed God for taking her when he could have took one of the criminals instead of her, needless to say I have resolved those feelings. I know that one day I will be by her side again and I will get to meet Bronner Burgess who started a revolution for God that surpassed anything that I have ever seen happen.

    I give this book a solid 5 there are discussion questions at the end to help give you a better understanding

  • WORTH THE JOURNEY

    I know the pain of losing a child and I also know the unexpected ways in which God shows His goodness through such suffering. Because of this, I was curious to hear Sherri’s testimony of the goodness of God. Her book does not disappoint. Though a difficult subject to read, it is full of hope and glory in our Sovereign God. This book is applicable to anyone who is, who has been, or who every will be in the midst of some kind of trial. The Scripture woven throughout her story is on-point and a breath of fresh air in the midst of stifling circumstances. I cannot recommend this book any higher. An absolute gift that she shared her story.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    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.

    It’s important to be reminded of the ways God works in people’s lives. It is an encouragement and challenge to get even closer to God no matter what situation lies before us. I am very, very thankful for the Bugess family, and their willingness to allow us to walk alongside them and learn and grow from their circumstance.

    This is a remarkable book that I recommend to everyone!

  • ‘BRONNER: A JOURNEY TO UNDERSTAND’ BY SHERI BURGESS {A LITFUSE PUBLICITY BOOK BLOG TOUR & REVIEW}

    Bronner is the summary of a mother’s heart following her child’s death. It’s the story of a families response to trial and tragedy at its utmost. It’s the story of trust in the author of life. Bronner is full of bible verses, faith at its core, and a God who can sustain us through the greatest nightmare that any parent can face here on earth. Sherri shares her story with raw emotion and candor and with a heart that longs for only one thing, that you too may know God.

  • ‘BRONNER’ REVIEW

    I surely feel I cannot do this book justice…. This is truly one of the most amazing, unnerving, awe struck books I have ever read! Sherri Burgess is hands down, a godly woman who met the Lord and I mean really met HIM, during, in my opinion, one of the most difficult, heart breaking times in her life.

  • FAITH REFINED THROUGH SUFFERING

    Bronner was both easy and hard to read. I have a hard time reading about children going home to Jesus seemingly “before their time” and certainly before we are ready to let them go. Yet we know that God has numbered all our days. He isn’t surprised when a child comes to Him in heaven before his parents. Yet Sherri Burgess tells her story with a conversational style that makes you feel like you’re sitting right next to her, having a friendly chat.

  • A MUST-READ BOOK!!

    This book is one of the most heart-wrenching, inspiring, faith-filled books that I’ve read. I knew what the book was about but I never imagined the profound affect it would have on me and my faith.

    I highly, highly recommend this book! Yes, it’s difficult read at times, but the depth of faith that the author shares and encourages in us is totally work the tears we shed as we read it. I give it 5 out of 5 stars.

  • MY VIEW OF THIS READ

    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.

  • ‘BRONNER: A JOURNEY TO UNDERSTAND’ + GIVEAWAY

    Be warned. Those who pick up Bronner by Sherri Burgess will shed some tears. No. Not some, but a lot. I teared, sobbed, cried so many times reading through this short, but heavy laden book, that my sinuses were cleared, nose dried and my eyes red and sting-y from all the wiping and re-wiping. Even thinking about this book, the story in it and the pain parents feel with a a tragic lost of a child aches me. If we feel this way, how do you think our mighty Father feels when even one of us gets lost?

    Bronner is a brutally honest, emotionally heart-wrenching and ultimately inspiring and encouraging read on turning your grief to God, and let Him carry you through.

  • SIMPLY A GIFT

    Sherri Burgess gives readers a gift in her book Bronner: A Journey To Understand. This book is written straight from Sherri’s heart – her mother heart. She writes with a transparency and vulnerability but also with an urgency. Sherri wants readers to have a clear picture of the One and Only True God that sustained her through the tragedy of losing her son – the same God that sustains her though her days now.

  • PAIN AND SUFFERING ARE USEFUL IN OUR LIVES, EVEN WHEN WE DON’T KNOW IT

    This is a book that will touch your heart in a very special way and if it doesn’t right away, then I suggest you read it again. There is so much here that each and every one of us can use and understand. Sherri has a way of touching your heart through her personal experience with the loss of her son, and yet not dwelling on what she went through. She dwells on what the Lord can do through pain and suffering. How everything has a purpose and design in His Master Plan and we, even through our pain and suffering, are a part of it.

    This book is an emotional trip. You will feel sorrow, joy, encouragement, you will remember your own hurts, and you will be challenged to want to do the same as Sherri, share your Lord and Savior with others. Pain and sorrow is useful, even when we don’t know it. God will use it in our lives and the lives of those around us.

    This is a powerful book!

  • BOOK REVIEW OF ‘BRONNER: A JOURNEY TO UNDERSTAND’ BY SHERRI BURGESS 2016

    I read this book in one day, so easy was it to step into and connect with.
    The story cannot help but capture the heart and emotions of the reader. My heart wept for the mother and family and friends of Bronner. Yet, as the mother and author of the book would desire, I got a wonderful sense of God’s presence and faithfulness and plan amidst the trial. This book is a marvelous testimony of God’s love and faithfulness. Truly, Bronner’s tragic tale will bring you closer to Christ. This book wasn’t as preparatory for trials as I would have desired and it isn’t entirely a book for healing after a tragedy…it is a testimony of God’s goodness through tragedy and I think that is what the author wished her book to be.

    To be truthful, I was confused a few times because of some of the grammar and phrasing. I decided that it was simply because I hadn’t heard the story before, thus leaving me lost at random moments. I would say that the author assumes the reader has heard all the cold details of the tragedy before reading this book. Nevertheless, it wasn’t terribly confusing. Anyone (like me) can pick up this book and understand the Burgess family’s story.

    Lastly, there are a few doctrinal things in this book which I disagree with but which I will leave unmentioned at this time for fear of hurting anyone.

  • A BOOK ON GRIEF AND GOD: ‘BRONNER’ BOOK REVIEW

    I recently finished a new book called Bronner: A Journey to Understand by Sherri Burgess. When I first started the book, I wanted to put it down because it sounded like Burgess was giving one of the pat answers to suffering I had heard many times…that we just have to trust God’s will and God’s timing.

    Now that I’ve finished the book, I’m glad I didn’t put it down because Burgess had some really great things to say. There were things in the book that I wish she had worded differently, but there were also some really great challenges her book offered to me.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    Because I have gone through pain and suffering in my life (certainly not the death of a child, for which I am extremely thankful), I looked forward to reading this book, to glean encouragement from the testimony presented therein.

    I know that what I am about to say/write will not be popular at all. I mean no offense, though.

    Frankly, I struggled to find the intended encouragement, because I had a hard time getting past the “he’s in heaven now” concept. You see, I haven’t found any Biblical support of that idea.

    With that in mind, I want to mention: if you believe what the Bible says about death in the following verses, you also may have a problem with this book: Eccl 9:5,6; Ps 6:5; Ps 115:17; Job 21:32; and others.

    I went into reading Sherri Burgess’ book expecting a touching story of motherhood and loss. I didn’t expect to find a book that is also a powerful Christian testimony of a powerful faith and an even more powerful sense of grace. Burgress turns what is a heartbreaking situation that would be a nightmare for any family into something for a more powerful good – to bring others to understand Christianity and accept Jesus and God into their lives.

    Be prepared to need a whole box of tissues while reading the story of Bronner. And be prepared to have your heart changed as well.

  • RAW AND INSPIRATIONAL

    I cried while I read this book, feeling the mother’s heartbreak through her words. Burgess is a profound writer and her words have an extreme depth to them that only someone who has experienced grief can fully comprehend. I’m not saying others can’t understand it but you really relate to things differently after you have lost someone. My dad died less then six months ago and while it’s not as tragic as a life cut short so young, it’s still a huge loss and a time of grieving. I have come to understand people better who have experienced loss and I really connected with Burgess in this story. While our losses were very different, grief is a path everyone must walk at some point.

  • A TIME TO UNDERSTAND

    Just a short time after losing her son, Sherri Burgess began to write her story. She was desperate to understand why this tragedy had to belong to her family. Although only a small portion of the book actually divulges the details of what happened the day her son Bronner died, from the first page to the last there is a proclamation of Sherri’s firm belief that God is good, He is holy, and He makes everything beautiful in its time. The Lord has blessed her walk of faith through this journey and produced a work of inspiration. I highly recommend it!

    A Journey to Understand is a book that will grab you, consume you, and, unless you are reprobate, will certainly impact you! Men – you probably will want to read this alone – no one needs to see another ugly faced cry!

    We’ve all known pain. We’ve all experienced grief. Like Job of the Bible, we may have even shaken our fist at God and wondered why He would allow us to be born just to suffer the tragedies of this life. Well, if you want the answers, grab a copy of this book.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    I appreciate Sherri’s willingness to open up about the tragedy of her two year old son, Bronner, dying in a pool accident. The book is full of honest, raw feelings and recollections, helping other parents who have lost a child. She does a beautiful job of tying in scriptures and leaving one with a message of hope. As a mother of young children, this book was hard for me to read, but I feel like it not only helps those who have been through a tragedy, but also helps those who have friends who have been through losing a child to know what the pain is like.

    Sherri Burgess’s labor of love is so beautifully written & I couldn’t put the book down until I reached the last page. There were times where I felt like I was sitting there having conversation. I want to thank Sherri for persevering and sharing her very personal story.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    I am a huge Rick and Bubba fan and I remember when this tragedy took place. I remember sitting at my work desk and crying for this family. When I had the chance to review this book I knew I had to because this story had touched my life. This is one of those books that once you pick it up you cannot put it down. Sherri Burgess’s writes a touching story about losing her son and how she/they survive. It was the kind of book that makes you feel as if Sherri is talking to you personally over a cup of coffee. The book has the capability to touch hurting people of all kinds. Sherri Burgess is an amazing person and writer to be able to work through her own pain in this very personal account of loss. I believe everyone should pick this up and read it. I guarantee you will not be the same once you are finished. It would be an awesome gift for someone who has lost a child.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    This is a book I will keep within arm’s reach on my end table or bedside as it is a poignant and empowering account that can lead others who may have to journey through their own losses. This book is a treasure to read and re-read. I’ve already read it once- straight through and now on my second more deeper reading. It is like a flashlight to help those experiencing in the foggy darkness of deep grief to navigate their way from disbelief, grief and anger towards a greater faith and peace. For anyone experiencing fresh raw grief of a child loss, whether a car accident, a drowning, cancer or exploitation, or for those with old wounds from the untimely death of a beloved child- this is the book to read.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    I could relate to the mother in this book, because I also have a 2 1/2 year old little boy, and I think that was most of the reason why it was so hard for me to read, I couldn’t help but put my little boy’s face in the place of Bronner’s and it terrified me. The passing of Bronner is something that ever mother and father fears, and for it to come true is the worst possible thing that could happen.

  • TO GOD BE THE GLORY

    Wow – what an incredibly brave and brutally honest account from a grieving mother.
    If you only read one nonfiction book this year, pick this one.

    This book has the power to change lives. This book has the power to change hearts. This book has the power to change eternal destinations. This book needs to be read.

    God bless you Bronner. God bless your family. To God be the glory.

  • A JOURNEY TO UNDERSTAND

    I highly recommend this book as you will find your own suffering amidst their pain and you will also find healing through their journey within your suffering. It is a beautiful how God weaves our stories together because suffering was never meant to be walked along.

  • ‘BRONNER’

    I was so encouraged by this book. Once you start reading this book you will not put it down until the very last page. Face God first that’s just what Burgess did, and she wants you to learn from her story.

    I thought my daughter would love to read this and hopefully it will help her in aome way. We lost our sweet baby girl Charliegh-Ann on December 29 2015.
    They say unknown SIDS. It has been the most pain I have ever endured and I can’t even think of the pain my daughter is enduring.
