Publisher's Description

True Story of Courage and Compassion in a School Under Siege

As 870 children waited in fear, their elementary school rushed into lockdown mode. As the nation faced yet another Sandy Hook story of tragedy, one woman rewrote the ending.

Yet the story doesn't start with those first steps Michael Hill took into that Atlanta elementary school. It starts with Antoinette Tuff, a woman who faced her own pain, hurt, and rejection, yet held onto grace, faith, and hope. A hope that anchored her in the most high stakes of moments, a grace that allowed her to empathize with a hurting young man, and a faith that gave her the courage to love him back from the brink.

This is more than just the amazing account of tragedy averted. It's the evidence of what we can do when we allow ourselves to be used by God. And it's a story of how God uses all of our life experiences--the good and the bad--to prepare us for our own moment of divine purpose.

Author Bio

Antoinette Tuff is a true picture of grace, courage, leadership, and heroism at its best. But before she made headlines and talked a school shooter back from the brink, she was a woman who faced--and overcame--her own pain and hurt. Publicly recognized by President Obama for her courageous act that saved a school from tragedy, she's also been nominated for the prestigious Carnegie Medal for civilian heroism. Today Antoinette speaks around the world, spreading hope and sharing her inspiring message of how our lives prepare us for our own moments of purpose. She has two children.

    This review was written for Prepared for a Purpose.
    This book gripped my heart. I couldn't put it down. Her tragic story and God's faithfulness was inspiring. But the practical steps that she took to walk out of her circumstances victoriously are reproducible in any believer's life. It more than just a good read, she gave good advice for anyone that is going through dark times.

    Do you like biographies? Do you like to know behind-the-scenes of events? Do you like to read stories of people who have overcome difficult times?

    Then you will like this book.

    This book weaves the story of Antoinette's life with the day she came face-to-face with a man who was intent on suicide by cop.

    The story tells what she was feeling during that time and how her most prominent thought during part of the time is something you wouldn't expect. She talks about hurtful things in her life growing up, during her young years, and even on the day of event.

    She explains how God prepared her for that day through all she had been through.

    The book gives you thought about your own life and how when things look hopeless, there is always a reason to continue. God puts people in your life at the right precise moment to help them. It may not be a big event as Antoinette's, but it could be.

    The only warning I would give is, don't read it if you need to get up early the next day! I read the book in about three settings and went to bed late two nights in a row. Ha!

    A great book to help you remember that sometimes the hardest times we have to endure can be the very same times we needed to show us what God can do for us! A very inspiring and reassuring read!!
