The Real Blind Side -Leigh Anne Tuohy Visits Lake Charles

The Real Blind Side Leigh Anne Tuohy visits Lake Charles!

 Leigh Anne Tuohy provided an inspirational message to hundreds of women who attended the 2013 Women’s Commission Fall Conference.

womens commission

Every Fall, the SWLA Women’s Commission sponsors a conference for women held in Lake Charles, LA   It is a day of educational speakers, fun workshops, a marketplace of vendors and a luncheon with a  keynote speaker at the Lake Charles Civic Center.  The  come and go session workshops throughout the day offer  women a variety of spiritual, health, creative, career and fun topics of interest.

 This year the keynote luncheon speaker for the 2013  Fall Conference was Leigh Anne Tuohy  

 Leigh Anne Tuohy and her family were portrayed in the hit movie The Blind Side which is the inspirational story of Michael Oher.  If you saw the movie or followed Michael Oher’s life story, he is noted for his collegiate football at Ole Miss and now his success continues with the Baltimore Ravens and a Super Bowl win!

Leigh Anne Touhy

I had the pleasure of hearing Leigh Anne Tuohy speak at the Women’s Conference today and one of the quotes that I took away from Leigh Anne’s inspirational message was “Invest in someone’s life to make a difference, love and hope goes a long way”  

It was refreshing to see and hear Leigh Anne Tuohy speak.  She shares that she and her family are just "real"just and average 'Joe' like you and me.  You don't have to be rich to make an impact in someone's life.  Everyday people can make a difference and mentor others, plug yourself in giving in some way.   I loved that she shared: "God uses simple people to tell a story"

In her interview, Leigh Anne Tuohy  shared that “Everyone can do something to make someone’s life better and help them realize their potential.  All we did is invest time in a young man who had nothing and all of a sudden he is an extremely valuable, contributing member of society” “If someone as immensely valuable as Michael Oher almost falls through the cracks, can you imagine who gets left behind?”  

After Leigh Anne finished  her keynote message she was presented the key to the City of Lake Charles  by Mayor Randy Roach and the key to the  City of Sulphur by Mayor Chris Duncan.

Touhy and Mayor Roach

A little kindness no matter how small goes a long way!  You never know whose life you may impact.

  The Real Blind Side Leigh Anne Tuohy visited Lake Charles and touched me with her geniune and caring insight!

Listen to the complete KPLC TV interview  of Leigh Anne Tuohy and I think you will agree  that she is just as  true and inspiring as The Blind Side story.
