White sandy beaches, aquamarine sea, and consistent sunshine are pretty awesome selling points, however. So, when I heard that the Bethany Hamilton story was coming to the big screen, I was pretty excited. Bethany is a surfer from Kauai who survived a shark attack as a young teenager and has lived to not only tell about it, but to inspire scads of people around the world to overcome adversity. And, my 11-year old daughter Alex is a big Bethany Hamilton fan. Alex read Hamilton's book, "Soul Surfer," and identified with the surfer's faith and perseverance in a big way.
I was even more excited when I was offered the opportunity to attend an advanced screening of the movie with my family AND give away 5 free tickets to my blog readers.
Spring in Seattle is always slightly disappointing. One sees flowers blooming, but isn't guaranteed a sighting of the sun. So, SOUL SURFER, the movie will bring me the Kauai fix I desperately need, albeit without the tan.
April 6th at AMC Pacific Place in Seattle at 6:15pm. Winners will receive a SOUL SURFER mystery gift pack, as well.
