Bonita Favre Carries On Through Faith

Bonita Favre signed copies of her book, simply entitled "Favre", Saturday afternoon in front of Waldenbooks in Biloxi.

The book looks at her NFL son's life from growing up in the Kiln to the MVP quarterback he is today.

Favre says many people throughout the nation are eager to read about the journey of a man some would call a legend.

"Phenomenal. Had no idea. It's already going to second press," said Favre.

Favre has been across the country signing copies of her book since it's release back in September.

It was during one of theses book signing stops that she had a bit of a health scare.

"I was in Madison, Wisconsin, and I had been on antibiotics and the antibiotics caused the problems that I had. Killed the good bacteria. But I think I'm fine now," said Favre.

Her own health is just one chapter of what has turned out to be some difficult times for the entire Favre family.

Her husband, Irvin, died last December, and earlier this year, Brett's wife Deanna was diagnosed with breast cancer.

What keeps her going?

"The Lord. Faith in God has got to carry you through everything," said Favre.

So what's next for Bonita Favre?

For now, she says her plans include continuing her book tour, and taking in a couple of more Packer games to see her famous football son as he attempts to guide his team towards the playoffs.

Bonita Favre says her book is perfect for readers of all ages.
