Soul Surfer – Meet Her For Real

I had the amazing pleasure of meeting Bethany Hamilton and her mom Cheri during their recent visit to FamilyLife. What a joy they both were – this is a mom and daughter who are truly connected.

Soul Surfer, the movie about Bethany’s life and the life altering encounter she had with a shark is being released April 9th.  The shark attack is probably going to be the draw for many movie goers…but they will gain so much more as they see her life unfold before their eyes. This is a family whose faith is at the center of their lives and seeing the story behind the story is the real blessing in this movie.

Allow me to introduce you to Bethany…and I hope you’ll make plans (with lots of friends) to go see the movie because it has it all – drama, action, excitement…and it will leave you wanting to know more about this amazing family!

    Thanks for sharing. I loved hearing this video. We have been advertising the movie at the Christian Radio station that I work at. What an amazing story. I can’t wait to take my teenage kids to go see it this next week.

    I like how Bethany described prayer as a conversation with God and I am encouraged after watching this video to pray more. Thanks for sharing about the movie. I remember Bethany’s story in the news years ago, but didn’t know they had made a movie of her experience. I’ll be sure to add the film to our must watch list.
