Every Fall, the SWLA Women’s Commission sponsors a conference for women held in Lake Charles, LA   It is a day of educational speakers, fun workshops, a marketplace of vendors and a luncheon with a  keynote speaker at the Lake Charles Civic Center.  The  come and go session workshops throughout the day offer  women a variety of spiritual, health, creative, career and fun topics of interest.

 This year the keynote luncheon speaker for the Fall Conference was Leigh Anne Tuohy  

 Leigh Anne Tuohy and her family were portrayed in the hit movie The Blind Side which is the inspirational story of Michael Oher.  If you saw the movie or followed Michael Oher’s life story, he is noted for his collegiate football at Ole Miss and now his success continues with the Baltimore Ravens and a Super Bowl win!

I had the pleasure of hearing Leigh Anne Tuohy speak at the Women’s Conference today and one of the quotes that I took away from Leigh Anne’s inspirational message was “Invest in someone’s life to make a difference, love and hope goes a long way”

In her interview, Leigh Anne Tuohy  shared that “Everyone can do something to make someone’s life better and help them realize their potential.  All we did is invest time in a young man who had nothing and all of a sudden he is an extremely valuable, contributing member of society” “If someone as immensely valuable as Michael Oher almost falls through the cracks, can you imagine who gets left behind?”  

After Leigh Anne finished  her keynote message she was presented the key to the City of Lake Charles  by Mayor Randy Roach and the key to the  City of Sulphur by Mayor Chris Duncan.

A little kindness no matter how small goes a long way!  You never know whose life you may impact.
