Bethany Hamilton’s incredible story of surviving and thriving in the wake of a shark attack, told in her best-selling autobiography Soul Surfer, has sold more than 1.5 million copies. Yet her family’s adventures started long before Bethany lost her arm and became a pro surfer. Now Cheri Hamilton, Bethany’s mom, tells the inspiring story of the Hamilton Family.
 
Raising a Soul Surfer invites readers to journey with the Hamiltons to the lush islands of Hawaii, to experience a worldwide news event, Bethany’s shark attack, from her parents’ point of view. Witness the many small steps of faith and how God stepped in and gave them a higher purpose.

Editorial Reviews

"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."

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 Robb
Actress (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."
 
Nick Vujicic Founder,
