The Story of St.
Quarterback Kurt Warner meeting and marrying his Wife Brenda-Truth!
Kurtis, a stock boy, meets
and falls instantly in love with Brenda, a cashier at the
supermarket where they both work. He asks her out, and she
resists, saying she's got 2 kids and no money for a
babysitter. Kurtis offers to pay for the sitter, so she
accepts. Kurtis meets the children, one of whom is a boy in
a wheelchair who has Down Syndrome. At the last minute, the
babysitter is not available, and Kurtis offers to take the whole
family out for the evening. He's a hit with the kids and
they are a hit with him and Brenda decides Kurtis is the man for
her. A year later, they are married and Kurtis, the stock
boy, is actually Kurt Warner, the quarterback for the St. Louis
The story of Kurt and Brenda Warner's meeting and marrying is an
often-told and inspiring one, but this particular eRumor version
of it includes a lot of fiction.
They did not meet as fellow employees at a supermarket and their
son does not have Down Syndrome.
When they met, Kurt was a university student and Brenda was a
divorced single mom living on food stamps. In his
autobiography "Keep Your Head Up," Kurt describes his
and Brenda's first encounter when a teammate at the
University of Northern Iowa talked him into going to a
country-music club in Cedar Falls, Iowa. There was an
instant connection, but Brenda didn't know whether it would
last. Not only was she a single mom, but one of her two
children, her son Zachary, had significant medical problems.
He was blinded and brain-injured when accidentally dropped to the
floor by her first husband. Kurt was not turned aside by the
children or Zachary's condition and he and Brenda forged a
relationship that resulted in their marrying four years
later. Kurt's celebrated job at a grocery store took place
in 1994 after he got a pink-slip from the Green Bay Packers.
He returned to Cedar Falls and worked nights stocking shelves for
$5.50 an hour. He rose to fame by throwing an amazing 41
touchdowns for the Rams, bringing them to a 13-3 record and to
memorable victory in Super Bowl XXXIV. He's become known for
his commitment to his family, his clean-kid lifestyle, and his
Christian faith. He and Brenda now live in St. Louis
with their four children Zachary, Kade, Jesse, and Jada Jo.
He is the founder of the First Things First foundation.
A real example of the story as it has
Dear Family and Friends,
