Wife of Former United States Senator Roland Burris Writes Book On Personal Challenges She Faced During Her Husband's Historic Appointment Process To U.S. Senate
Dr. Berlean Miller Burris, Ph.D.
"And having done all to stand, STAND"
Gods Faithfulness Never Fails
In the wake of a political attack on personal integrity, Berlean Burris had no choice but to just stand. The media hounded her family and her husband, Senator Roland W. Burris when he was appointed to the United States Senate from Illinois. Berlean was expected to remain silent and observe the falsehoods regarding her husband's character. Soon, the intense isolation and despair became a transitional moment for Berlean to rest on a firm foundation of family, faith, and years of public service and “just stand” for something greater than herself.
Berlean is to be commended for communicating the story of her journey in such a clear and compelling way. From my perspective, it seems that this narrative forged in the realities of life as a political spouse could very well be helpful to many.

The pages of this book ooze with evidence that Dr. Burris lives what Paul admonishes the believers in the church at Colosse to live out: “Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, live in your hearts and make you wise…” From her early childhood in rural Mississippi to the many places of influence and service that God assigned her, she makes much of Christ. In Just Stand, Dr. Burris chronicles her life of triumphs and trials. In each place, she stands on the Word of God because she realizes that Jesus Christ is preeminent. You will be encouraged and challenged to embrace the truth that God communicates through His Word.”
