ST. LOUIS --  The man who led the St. Louis Rams to a Super Bowl victory helped lead a single mother into her new home.  
The St. Louis woman just received a new home from Habitat for Humanity.

The home is fully furnished thanks to the charity of former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner.

It was a day of surprises for mail carrier Kia Johnson.

"You're Kurt Warner!"

The single mom and her daughters were excited to take possession of a new home, courtesy of Habitat for Humanity -- even if they weren't sure why Kurt and Brenda Warner were there.

"We have been a part of your big day without you knowing about it."

The kindness of strangers ignited a chain-reaction.

"Surprise!"

A kitchen stocked with food, a washer and dryer, furnished bedrooms for the Johnson daughters, $10,000 worth of furnishings from Kurt and Brenda Warner's First Thing's First Foundation -- everything for a new life.

"This is awesome! God, it's so awesome. I'm sorry."

"You never know what the reaction's gonna be, but you know inside they feel so blessed," says Warner.

"As I'm sitting still for the moment, each and every detail is just more and more gratitude, the food, the toothbrushes, the chairs, the dishes, just...overwhelmingly thank you," Johnson says.

"Single moms rock. I mean there's nobody like them," says Brenda Warner.  "They're strong, they are courageous, and they do what needs to be done, and now they're being rewarded."
