Inspirational Subject of "The Blind Side"
The chronicle of the Leigh Anne Tuohy family’s life, Michael Lewis’ New York Times number one best-seller The Blind Side, went on to become a record-breaking Hollywood blockbuster that earned more than $300 million at the box office and became the number one opening weekend sports film in history. The film boldly depicts both the struggles and triumphs of building a blended family.
Leigh Anne is the inspirational matriarch of the Tuohy family. The Tuohy family’s inspirational story has been covered all over the national media, including Katie, Fox and Friends, Good Morning America, 20/20, The Today Show, Dr. Drew, Sean Hannity, Huffington Post Live, and Huckabee, among others. Leigh Anne has also been a contributing writer to the AARP weekly blog and More.com, offering advice through personal stories of determination and charitable giving.
A Memphis, Tennessee native, Leigh Anne attended Briarcrest Christian School and went on to graduate from the University of Mississippi with a Bachelor’s of Science in Interior Design. While studying at the University of Mississippi, better known as Ole Miss, Leigh Anne met Sean Tuohy, her husband. Leigh Anne was a cheerleader, homecoming maid and an active member of her sorority, Kappa Delta.
Leigh Anne owns “Flair I,” an interior design firm. Her work has been featured on HGTV and in numerous publications. She has designed for such clients as Peyton Manning, Scottie Pippen, Isaac Bruce, and OJ Mayo and was a member of the design team for Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Season 8 during the 2010-11 season.
Years after The Blind Side premiered, breaking box office records and inspiring individuals nationwide, Leigh Anne continues to make an impact. In July 2010, she and her husband, Sean, released the New York Times best-seller, In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving, and established their charity, The Making it Happen Foundation, which promotes awareness, provides hope, and improves standards of living for all the children fighting to survive in the invisible cracks in society.
The Tuohy family is actively involved in many civic and faith-based organizations, including Grace Evangelical Church, of which they are founding members. In 2010, Leigh Anne was awarded an honorary doctorate from Christian Brothers University for her outstanding commitment to Christian service and cheerful giving.
Leigh Anne was seen on Family Addition with Leigh Anne Tuohy on UP. The television show featured families as they go through the practical, physical, and emotional process of adding a new family member and also facilitated a makeover of part of their homes to accommodate the new addition.
Leigh Anne’s latest book, Turn Around, was released in 2015, and is a five-day-per-week devotional that uses scripture as a springboard to reconsider what it means to give sacrificially and generously.
