Soul Surfer

I went to see Soul Surfer today. Wow! What a story and a testament to Christ and his power in one’s life! It’s a true story about Bethany Hamilton, a teenage surfer, who lost an arm to a shark attack. The movie is well done and worth the $21 spent for my daughters and I to see it. It is rated PG and I wouldn’t recommend it for real young children, but my girls are 10 and 11 and handled it fine. We had a great discussion afterwards about the scripture, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,” and the fact that our outlook in a bad situation can make the difference between God using it for good and his glory or us shriveling up with bitterness and anger. I do have to warn you though, take a box of tissues in with you because you’re going to need it.
