Lessons Learned From Soul Surfer

If you just read and looked at the title, you might think that this is just a simple surfing and sharks story. But Jesus collided with the Soul Surfer. This is not just a true story either, this is actually a true story. The characters here are based on real life and the story is based on real fact.


Bethany (Anna Sophia Robb) was born to surf. A natural talent who took to the waves at a young age, she was leading an idyllic life on Kauai, participating in national surf competitions with her best friend Alana (Lorraine Nicholson), when everything changed.


On Halloween morning, a 14-foot tiger shark came out of nowhere and seemed to shatter all her dreams. Soul Surfer reveals Bethany's fight to recover from her ordeal and how she grappled with the question of her future. Strengthened by the love of her parents, Tom (Dennis Quaid) and Cheri (Helen Hunt), and supported by her youth group leader Sara (Carrie Underwood), Bethany refuses to give in or give up, and begins a bold return to the water.


Lesson learned? Did you ever wonder why people advises you to trust your instinct, to listen, and to follow it? It's because that's the moment when God starts to talk to you...
