About the Author:

Cheri Hamilton | Hanalei Bay, Kauai Cheri was 27 when she first met Christ in between surf sessions. At the time she was completely obsessed with surfing. In 1975, she met and married Tom. Together they raised their three kids Noah, Tim and Bethany, and taught them how to surf.

Rick Bundshuh | Poipu, Hawaii

Rick is a pastor, veteran youth worker, writer, speaker and published cartoonist. He serves as a teaching pastor at Kauai Christian Fellowship. He worked with Bethany Hamilton on her best-selling Soul Surfer book. He lives with his beautiful wife, Lauren, their kids, weenie dog and a quiver of surfboards. Rick is also the author of the thought provoking Deep Like Me.

 

Review:

“Spending time with Cheri Hamilton and the whole Hamilton clan during script development, pre-production, filming and beyond gave me a unique perspective on the family. Seeing the love for God, and the love of God, pouring out of them kept us focused on the true reason for producing the film, Soul Surfer. And having the opportunity to have Cheri capture even more of the story in ‘Raising a Soul Surfer’ helps fill in all the blanks that are left unfilled by a 2 hour movie.” Rich PelusoVice President, AFFIRM Films / Sony Pictures Entertainment  If you are that worried about sharks, don’t surf. Fear can ruin a good time, and anticipating the unknown is futile. Ever since a shark attacked Bethany, she focuses on what she can control instead of what she can’t see. In fact, “Don’t Look Down” seems to be an unspoken motto for the entire Hamilton family. This expression is not a suggestion that they ignore their fears; rather, it is a statement of courage that motivates them to embrace life’s challenges. Instead of worrying about what might happen, the Hamiltons trust in the Lord and don’t blink an eye to transitory disturbances. They continue to look up toward the Lord, hoping and praying for good instead of mulling over their fears. This unique family lives a beautifully rough island life, “following their bliss” and not fretting over what is around the next turn. Rather than analyzing and contemplating their next move, they taste life and experience it. This attitude represents an island mentality of living life to the fullest and simply enjoying the gifts God provides: the ocean, family and friends. From the Foreword by Anna Sophia RobbActress (portrayed Bethany Hamilton in the hit movie Soul Surfer)

 



 


 



"I have been truly honored to know Bethany Hamilton, riding with her and sharing platforms where we witness people's hearts being deeply moved by the inspirational story of Bethany and her faith in God.  As a child going and growing through difficulties because of having no limbs since birth, I sincerely understand the importance of a mother's role in one's life through storms that seem too big at times.  Cheri Hamilton's testimony and life's lessons will touch and challenge anyone's perspective of life.  Furthermore her love for Bethany, her family and above all, God, will ignite a flame of faith and encouragement to all who read."
