Need a suggestion for something to read or watch from the library this weekend? Maybe you'd like to check out an ebook or audiobook? Try some of our Staff Picks, to find what some of the other people in our parish are enjoying.

We know that not every staff pick will appeal to every patron, but not to worry! If you need help selecting something, we have online tools like Book Browse and our Online Catalog, or you can ask one of our friendly staff members to help search for you.

Soul Surfer [DVD]

In the movie, Soul Surfer, a teenage girl who has been consumed with her love of surfing is suddenly faced with some difficult choices. She must choose whether to attend a mission trip with her church or to train for a surfing competition. One day while surfing, she loses her arm in a shark attack. Will she turn toward or away from God in her time of crisis? Will she continue surfing? You will need to watch the movie to find out.

Soul Surfer was a movie that encouraged me during one of the most crucial moments of my life. This young lady has been an inspiration to many teenagers as well as adults in overcoming dire situations.

If Soul Surfer interests you, feel free to request or check it out. We'll be back next Thursday with a different Staff Pick.
