Overcoming Adversity Through Faith in God
I have learned that nothing can keep me from my goals with God on my side. Not even a tiger shark bite. I want my life to inspire other young adults to never give up on what they want, and to rely on God and your family to help you achieve all that you are meant to be.
Soul Surfer by Bethany Hamilton
A story of a courageous thirteen year girl overcoming obstacles with determination, her friends and family, and most importantly her faith in God. When a tiger shark bit her arm off, she didn't give up her dreams. Instead she asked God to show her what he had intended for her life and how she could glorify Him. Even with one arm she retrained herself to continue surfing competitively. The notoriety she received from her ordeal serves as her platform for her faith and determination.
