First Book Review of the Yr.

I have to say this book was one of the best real true-life stories I'v ever read!  "Prepared for a Purpose', by Antoinette Tuff is an inspiring story about how she herself kept a shooter at bay for over an hour at a school where she worked. She makes the reader feel as if they are right there in the hostage situation along w/her.
 Antoinette does an amazing job of telling the story while she gives an in-depth look at how she was brought up and how it all came together to this moment in time where God used her in an unusual way to keep a 'madman' from killing anyone. 
 What she was taught about God as a young child and the faith she had all the way through adulthood, the very difficult personal trials she went through over the years, the lessons learned along the way, were all part of the key elements in her preventing what could have been an otherwise massive tragedy.
I couldn't put the book down.  It made me both smile and cry at some of the things this woman had to endure. I hope that someday they make a movie from this amazing woman's life!!  You will not be disappointed in reading this book!!
Thanks to Bethany House Publishers for letting me review this free book!

I'll be back in a few days to share some more craft projects w/you!  Stay tuned and stay warm!!
