Unstoppable Me, written by New York Times bestselling author and champion surfer Bethany Hamilton with husband, Adam Dirks, tells the story of Makana the lion, who loves to surf but loses her nerve when she wipes out. When her friend encourages her to go back out again, Makana summons up the courage and discovers the success that comes from believing in yourself and never giving up.
As seen in the feature film Bethany Hamilton: Unstoppable, this playful board book with foiled padded cover will have little ones cheering for Makana and inspire them to stay strong and keep trying, no matter what challenges might come their way.
Adam Dirks is not only Bethany Hamilton's husband, but he has played a key role in the lives of many young people as a youth leader and teacher. His passion for God and love for others is infectious. Growing up in Kansas playing football, his heart was always drawn to work with kids. This inspired Adam to pursue a degree in elementary education at Tabor College, and during the summers, he worked at a sports camp for kids. Adam felt certain there was a greater calling in life and followed that call all the way to Kauai, where, in 2011, he helped establish a ministry focusing on running clubs and summer camps for high school students. Adam continues to spread God's word and is now partnering with Bethany on encouraging youth and ultimately being the best parents they can be to their son, Tobias.
Since losing her arm, Bethany has chosen to use her experience to become an inspiration and help others to overcome adversity, no matter how great. "People I don't even know come up to me. I guess they see me as a symbol of courage and inspiration. One thing hasn't changed - and that's how I feel when I'm riding a wave."
