Last night, my friend and I got a chance to see an early screening of Soul Surfer. And since I love Bethany Hamilton’s story, I was excited to see it on the big screen.
- My small groups girls will love it…and yours will too. It’s a great TRUE story of a GIRL who overcomes a major trauma. I had the chance to meet Bethany a few years back at our Student Leadership Conference (SLC) and she’s the real deal. She loves Jesus and wants to bring glory to his name. I am certain that my girls (and your girls) will be inspired. I am certain that boys will like it too.
- I was mostly impressed with the movie. There were a few parts I felt myself squirm because…let’s be honest, their budget was not the same budget as Lord of the Rings. And well, Carrie Underwood is a really good singer. But seriously, Dennis Quaid and Helen Hunt were pretty amazing. I loved a lot of the family moments in the movie.
The movie will be in theatres everywhere on April 8th- Definitley consider taking your girls to see it. I am certain they will enjoy it. And I promise it will lead to some interesting conversations!
