On August 20, 2013, Antoinette Tuff stood face to face with a gunman at Robert E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy just outside of Atlanta. Using her courage and faith, she was able to talk him into surrendering, protecting more than 800 young children who were locked down in the school.
Tuff's debut book, Prepared For A Purpose, covers the journey that led her to that fateful day. She shares the tale of raising a child with multiple disabilities, and her marriage and financial struggles.
Now Tuff travels around the world sharing her inspiring message of faith, courage and how to overcome to people from all walks of life, from church groups to business groups. She also has started a non-profit organization called Kids on the Move for Success, which is dedicated to providing educational opportunities to underprivileged children.
