What Are Some Great Soul Surfer Discussions?

Here are just a few of the great discussions you can have as a parent and teen about movie Soul Surfer.  These are life discussions that get to the core of a person’s being and grapple with one’s relationship to God and others.

  1. When life appears to be hopeless God can provide hope and comfort – 2 Corinthians 1:3-4; Colossians 1:27.
  2. God’s use of tragedy to bring about His glory and our (a person who has a relationship with Him) good – Romans 8:28-29.
  3. God’s use of trials and “hard things” in life to develop endurance, character, and hope – Romans 5:1-5.
  4. God provides strength to overcome temptations to give up, complain, or blame others – I Corinthians 10:13.
  5. Life is about living and loving God and others more than me getting what I want when I want – Philippians 2:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:15.
  6. A loving/godly family is very important to handling life God’s way – Proverbs; Ephesians 6.

There are many other great topics and lessons in this move based on a true story.  Feel free to add to the list.
