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 ★★★★★★★★★★.


  1. I agree with you, excellent movie! Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thanks Debby! Hope yours is great too!

    2. I am a big fan of surf movies and documentaries but have wanted to avoid this one. Just not wanting to admit a big ole shark could munch me. You rated it so high, I guess I'll have to check it out. Of course I run the risk of never getting back into my beloved ocean.
