Bethany Hamilton Speaks About Her Faith in Jesus Christ at National Prayer Breakfast

WASHINGTON, DC — ‘Soul Surfer, Bethany Hamilton, recently spoke during the National Prayer Breakfast held on February 6 in Washington, DC. Bethany spoke about her recovery after she lost her arm in a shark attack at the age of 13 and how her faith in Jesus Christ continues to give her the strength to overcome life’s adversities. Hamilton read two biblical passages and focused her message on overcoming adversities during her speech.

“Because of where Jesus brought me, I have no regrets of the adversities God has allowed me to go through,” said Hamilton. “As you look at me, you could think, ‘Wow, have pity on her, she lost her arm to a shark.’ But I look it as something beautiful. God has taken something awful and turned it into something incredibly amazing.”

At age thirteen Bethany Hamilton was a rising surfing star whose life was shattered one morning when a shark completely bit off her arm. Only the immediate help of her friends, heroic work by doctors and an overwhelming peace kept her alive in the critical moments after the attack. That fact that she survived was a miracle. Bethany looked inward to her relationship with Jesus, who renewed her spirit while also restoring her surfing ability, to even greater heights. Her story today is retold in the movie SOUL SURFER, and continues to inspire others to not give up on themselves..and God.
