Soul Surfer | ★★★★★★★★★★
Again, I am quite a bit late to this party as I am sure that many of you have already seen this great movie. The story is a true one based on the real life events of Hawaiian teen Bethany Hamilton who courageously returned to competitive surfing after losing her left arm in a shark attack. I loved these messages in this story:
1) Faith and trust is so important in the way that we deal with tragedy.
2) Family, and their love, can be a firm foundation in times of trouble.
3) Friends are those who are there for you in times of trouble.
I found the movie to be really inspirational. The life of this young Hawaiian woman touched me. Watching her bravely recover and puruse her dreams moved me. She is a living example of one who believed that all things are possible with Christ.
No surprise that I loved it and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★★★.
