Faith, Family, Family Faves, LIVE

A Movie to Inspire Faith and Courage

“SOUL SURFER is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, inspiring millions worldwide through the love of her family, her sheer determination, and her unwavering faith in Jesus Christ. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid.”

Soul Surfer opens tomorrow all across the country! I had the opportunity to screen this movie and found it inspiring, encouraging and challenging.  The family’s faith is central in this dramatic true story, but don’t expect it to be overtly central to the movie.  It is definitely there, but not the focus of the film.  Christians need to remember that we cannot expect “faith-based” films to do our job for us.  They can open up a dialogue with those who don’t share our faith…it’s our job to get the conversation going!

Enjoy the trailer and plan an outing to see this movie {dramatic events that are the basis for this movie are too intense for little ones}.  I’m glad I did!

Thanks for visiting…have a Beautiful day {especially if it gets a little Crazy}!
