After graduating from Texas A&M University, Julie Brawner had no idea what her life had in store for her. But after marrying Dave and entering the coaching world, Julie joined the ministry of her husband—showing young men and women the hope of Christ through sports and in the classroom.
Every Tuesday and Friday night during basketball season, you would see Julie and young daughter, Adia, cheering on Coach “Daddy” Brawner from the stands in a Texas high school gym.
But as the seasons of life changed, God chose to visit their family in an unexpected way. He dramatically impacted their family and their world when they lost their daughter, Piper Kay, just days before her due date. From the unrelenting touch of God’s hand on her heart, Julie began to write.
Journey through the story of loss and watch as the hope of Christ Jesus unveils before you. Wrestle in the valleys and climb to the mountaintops with the Brawner family as you allow Piper Kay to leave a mark on your heart unlike any other. Join them—and experience the immeasurable depths of love that shines from the face of the Savior.
