Product Description

Review

"If you saw the movie "The Blind Side," you saw a family that is quite honestly the most amazing family I think I have ever, ever seen... Remarkable, remarkable people."--Glenn Beck "In "The Blind Side" I did my best to describe the full force of Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, but there is only so much one writer can do. "In A Heartbeat" picks up where I left off, and gives the reader a much fuller portrait of these extraordinary people."--Michael Lewis "All I can say is, if there were more Leigh Anne Tuohys, the world would be a better-run, more harmonious, and more productive place . . . She's such an amazing person."--Sandra Bullock "Sean is an all-around good guy, and the inspirational story of what he and his family did for this kid--the time, the effort, and the love he put out--is pretty incredible."--Tim McGraw "Their book aims to bring the Michael Oher miracle off the big screen and back down to Earth--and make sure that its message won't get lost here."--"The Baltimore Sun""""For anyone wondering what more there might be to say about the inspiring story of "The Blind Side," the answer is: plenty... They write with humor about their quirks and the joy that Michael brought to their family."--"Publishers Weekly"

Format: Audio CD
"I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' And when he had said these things, he knelt down and prayed with them all." -- Acts 20:35-36 (NKJV)

When I read The Blind Side, I was fascinated by the generosity that Leigh Anne and Sean Touhy showed to Michael Oher. I wanted to better understand how they had become such cheerful givers. While Christians learn from the Bible that they are to be that kind of givers, many struggle in practice to behave that way.

When this CD came out, I was delighted to have a chance to hear the whole Touhy family talk about their Christian beliefs, their family backgrounds, and their giving practices. I learned a lot from it. I especially liked the Popcorn Theory, that we are to serve the needs of those who pop up in our vicinity.

I was also touched to realize that the ways they had received generosity from others led Leigh Anne and Sean Touhy to appreciate the importance of being such givers and how much it affects the lives of others. I counted my blessings about the generosity I've received and that reflection made me appreciate more ways I can share my time, effort, and money to make a difference.

I recommend this audio CD to anyone who has ever wondered how much to give. The answer is: We should give more . . . and cheerfully.

Wow getting ready to reread this great book,so relevant in these modern times.Leigh Ann and Sean Tuohy renews faith in humanity,while they are driven by there Christian faith there approach to life is so modern and full of common sense.
A dynamic and no nonsense attitude to helping others when it's needed and stepping aside once said person can stand on his own.
The story of the people in the movie The Blindside is based on and there beliefs and ideas on life are all within this inspiring novel.This book is a great addition if you own the DVD of the film it will take you deeper into the mind set of these amazing people ,who don't just talk Christian values(like a lot of so called Christians)but walk it ,

I read the Blind side before watching ths film. I assumed that this book was just the background to the story. However, this is so much more. It is a great book for any Christian to read. Brilliant book.

Hilarious and brilliant in equal measure. Not at all sanctimonius, and very uplifting. Would recommend to anyone needing a quick read to cheer themselves up about the world.
