Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: MUST SEE NEW MOVIE! "Soul Surfer", the Bethany Hamilton story. Opens April 8!

MUST SEE NEW MOVIE! "Soul Surfer", the Bethany Hamilton story. Opens April 8!

I live 20 minutes away the beach, but I can only say that 3 times in my life have I ever tried surfing.

It's not for the faint of heart. It kicked my butt each of those 3 times. I thought I was in shape until I struggled to battle to swim past the waves, to stand up for half of a second, and get tossed back into the tumbling water. What I loved most about the experience though is not just the physical battle, but the spiritual analogies that came out of it all. Each time I have surfed, I've been reminded, isn't that what life is all about? Facing each wave of trial, doubt, insecurity that comes rolling in as we trust God to help us stand up on the board of life in victory.

Years ago I heard about a girl who was surfing and was attacked by a shark who bit off her left arm. Her name is Bethany Hamilton, and I've always been inspired by her story, mostly for continuing to get back out there and surf despite the tragedy that she endured.

Now they have made a movie about her life that will be releasing APRIL 8! If you have been a fan of Fireproof, Facing the Giants and other Christian films, this is one of the first Christian films that Hollywood has backed with Sony Pictures taking it on and providing a budget to create A-MAZING cinematography, A-List actors, and unimaginable CGI editing for the missing arm.

Last night, Stephen and I were given sneak preview tickets to view the film for an early release they are doing around the country to help rally Christians to get the word out about it's release on APRIL 8. It is crucial that as a Christan film, this film exceeds expectations on OPENING NIGHT to help Hollywood continue to want to put money and support behind these needed stories that need to be told.

Watching the sneak preview, it's a story for all generations young and old, and it's incredibly inspiring for all people, Christians or not. It even brought a tear to my eye a few times. You will love it and walk away being totally motivated. As the organizer of the sneak preview told us as the audience last night, "We all have shark bites in our life, and we want this film to inspire others for their own journey."

Also something cool about the actors, this is the film debut for Carrie Underwood who plays Bethany's youth leader. If you love the country star, you will love her in this role!

So here's the trailer! HELP SPREAD THE WORD! If you have a blog, blog about it. If you have a twitter, twitter about it. If you have a Facebook, Facebook about it. Tell your neighbors, church, workplace. Gather a group of your friends to go see it and support it! Let's get BIG numbers for the April 8 release!!
