Education and early life

Brenda was raised on a farm by her father who worked for a wealthy businessman, while her mother was a homemaker; she hasn’t spoken about having siblings, and most netizens (citizens of the internet) believe Brenda to be an only child. Her parents died in 1996, when their home in Mountain View, Arkansas was destroyed by a tornado.

Brenda studied at Cedar Falls High School and was into a number of activities during her teenage years; she was mostly into dancing, and was an All-American cheerleader. She matriculated in 1985, and because she hasn’t spoken about her further education, it’s believed that Brenda hasn’t attended college, but joined the US Marine Corps after completing her secondary education.

Brenda’s career

After she was discharged from the Marines, and following her and her first husband’s divorce, Brenda became a licensed nurse.

She and her husband Kurt Warner co-authored the book “First Things First – The Rules for Being a Warner”, in 2009.

Love life and marriages

Brenda was married once, prior to meeting Kurt. She met her future first husband Neil while serving with the Marine Corps in Japan, and they exchanged vows in a small and private ceremony in 1987; Brenda gave birth to their son Zachary in 1989, and their daughter Jesse followed in 1992. Zachary was four months old when Neil dropped him while giving him a bath, and he suffered brain damage which led to blindness; this eventually led to Brenda’s discharge from the Marine Corps, as well as to her and Neil’s divorce.

Brenda and Kurt met while he was still attending college, as he’s five years her junior; they married at the St. John American Lutheran Church on 11 October 1997, and Kurt then legally adopted Brenda’s two children. She’s since given birth to their five children; their son Elijah ‘E. J.’ Warner is today playing for the Temple Owls football team of Temple University, while their other son Kade Warner’s playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL.
