Is your kid into surfing? The movie Soul Surfer (2011) is a great story about a young girl who lost her arm while surfing but still is able to continue to surf. This girl also has a passion for Christ which just makes her story even more inspirational as she uses her accident to glorify God. The movie is a great film but the true life story of Bethany Hamilton far exceeds the movie. Bethany now competes internationally and in 2010 she was ranked 20th on the 2010 ASP Women’s tour.
“When people ask me what my faith in Christ means to me, I usually answer in just one word: ‘everything!’ “.-Bethany Hamilton
