    That movie is one of my favorites. It inspired me so much and both my young daughters were moved by it as well.

    Thanks Kadi. I know so many churches in our area are showing it at family nights. What a witness and I love your encouraging statement: "This movie gives a strong Christian witness, a message of hope for those of us with imperfect bodies, and a model of family support in medical crisis. And for me, most importantly, it reinforced the belief I have that no experience in this life is ever wasted - it can all be used to help others." I particularly like the part about "no experience in this life is ever wasted - it can all be used to help others." How true.

    I believe maybe you're off work for the summer? Hope all is well and you're looking forward to your new year ahead. You are such an inspiration!

    Blessings,

    "Soul Surfer"

    I just watched this movie on dvd last night and recommend it! It's the story of Bethany Hamilton, a teenager in Hawaii, who lost her arm in a shark attack and decided to go on with her life goals - including professional surfing - in spite of the difficulties of balance with only one arm. I also really recommend the "special features", a section of dvd's that I usually ignore, but am glad I didn't this time. There are short features on the making of the movie, how the actress got into character, the special effects, and a truly uplifting documentary of the real Bethany and what has become her Christian ministry.

And for me, most importantly, it reinforced the belief I have that no experience in this life is ever wasted - it can all be used to help others.
