In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving

By Leigh Anne & Sean Tuohy

Published in 2010

264 pages

Why did you pick up this book?

Because The Blind Side is one of my favorite movies. Don’t ask me why, but I would agree to watch inspirational sports movies over any type of fantasy or sci-fi sort of flick. Same for books. I like real life. The cover of this book gives it a cheesy Christian vibe, but it’s a beautiful look at the Tuohy family philosophy of always giving.

What topic(s) does this book deal with?

1. The Tuohy’s story of how they came to welcome football star Michael Oher into their family, and 2. Their inspiring take on giving back

What was your favorite part of this book?

Too much! There are a bunch of inspiring quotes interspersed, and it’s beautiful to read a real-life example of people giving of themselves.

What style is this book written in?

This books is fairly conversational. Chapters flip from Leigh Anne to Sean’s perspective, and are sometimes a mix.

How readable is this book?

This book is extremely readable: there is dialogue and to the point pages on giving back. But it’s their story too, so you get into it.
