Blind Sided

The movie, The Blind Side, always struck a cord with me.  I left the movie theater wanting to immediately watch the movie again.  The movie moved me to my core and the message I took away that day has stuck in my head ever since.

A few months ago, my mom let me borrow a book, In a Heartbeat, it was the story of Sean and Leigh Anne Touhy.  I added the book to my ever growing stack of must reads and I finally got around to it last week.  I have not been able to put this book down.

Below are some of my favorite quotes from the book:

"No one has ever become poor by giving." - Anne Frank

"Character is something that you cannot buy, and it's something that cannot be taken from you.  You can only lose it.  It's the most important thing you own." - Sean Tuohy

"God gives you money because he wants to see how you handle it." -Leigh Anne Tuohy

In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving
Please read this book.  It is great!
