Bethany Hamilton, a 13-year-old girl destined for a successful surfing career, lost her arm to a shark in 2003. The attack didn’t cause this determined surfer to give up. Instead, it compelled her to discover her purpose in life as she overcame her loss and got back on the board just weeks later.
'Heart of a Soul Surfer' digs deep into the heart of Bethany's abiding faith in God, and tackles the difficult question 'Why does God allow bad things to happen in our lives?'
Bethany's story has been told by many different people around the world, but this is the first time she and her family have been able to share it from their heart and perspective.
