LIES YOUNG WOMEN BELIEVE
 
Ever since Eve, women have been swallowing Satan's lies, and so have their daughters.

Study guide includes reflection prompts, challenging activities, and group discussion questions.
They say Bethany Hamilton has saltwater in her veins, and they just might be right! How else could one explain the tremendous passion that drives her to surf? Nothing, not even the loss of her arm in a horrific shark attack can come between her and the waves she loves to surf. Read the story of this courageous 13-year-old and her journey from hospital to competitive surfing once again.
 
Soul Surfer is the moving account of Bethany's life as a young surfer, her recovery in the wake of the attack, the adjustments she's made to her unique surfing style and her unprecedented bid for a top showing in the World Surfing Championships. But, most importantly, it's also the story of her belief in God. It's a story of girl power and spiritual grit that shows that the body is no more essential to surfing--perhaps even less so--than the soul. Recommended for ages 8 and up.
