I didn't plan on losing my left arm in a shark attack on October 31, 2003. I didn't plan on having to learn to surf all over again, and I certainly didn't plan on becoming famous. I never thought I'd write a book, or throw out the first pitch at a New York Yankees baseball game, or talk to people all over the world who have lost limbs in wars and accidents. One thin I did plan on doing was whatever God wanted me to do. I wanted my plan to be his plan, no matter what. In fact, one of my favorite verses, Jeremiah 29:11, talks about the plans God has for those who follow him. God put his plan into action in my life in a dramatic way, yet I'm thrilled to have any opportunity to tell people about him because sometimes God uses us in small ways too.

“My family and I have had some tough times, including when I was attacked by a shark and lost my arm,” says Bethany Hamilton, the professional surfer and shark-attack survivor whose story of courage and recovery inspired millions of people around the world to face their fears and live their faith. Now, this devoted Christian encourages and challenges teen girls to stand up for their faith, make a difference and avoid spiritual wipeouts. “God promises His children peace right in the middle of tough times,” says Hamilton, and in Soul Surfer Devotions she shares the personal anecdotes, prayers and Bible passages that have helped her to live a fulfilling life by trusting the Lord with all her heart.
