Antoinette Tuff   

Antoinette Tuff is an ordinary woman who God used to do something extraordinary.  On August 20, 2013, Antoinette, a school bookkeeper, came face to face with a gunman carrying an AK-47 and more than 500 rounds of ammunition with an angry promise to kill, steal, and destroy everyone.  She used her courage, bravery and instincts to talk the gunman into surrendering, which resulted in the only school shooting in the nation without fatalities or injuries.  A single mom working three jobs, Antoinette’s faith and obedience had prepared her for that day.  She shares her inspirational message on how all of our lives have purpose, and emphasizes to each of us the same thing she told Michael Hill that fateful day  - “everything will be all right.”
