Steven Curtin Chapman

Even if you don't listen to Contemporary Christian music, please be in prayer for The Chapman Family. Steven Curtis Chapman's 5 yr old daughter who was their 3rd daughter they adopted from China was accidently killed today when his son was backing up in his SUV and did not see her. The shock and disbelief the family is going through is one many can only imagine. The guilt of his son is one none of us would ever want to bear. Lets pray for all of them.

I heard about this on the local news.  I am not familiar with his work but to lose a child is unimaginable.  I am keeping he and his family in my prayers.  Leene

they have such incredible faith; I've heard interviews they've done over the years; I know the Lord will guide them through this time

I heard this on the DAYSTAR program I was watching today with Marcus and Joni Lamb.  I don't know if you've ever heard of them.  This was a horrible, horrible tragic thing to have happened.  It must be overwhelming.  Their family is such a blessing to many.  THey will be held up now in so many prayers.

This just broke my heart when I heard it this morning. I still get weepy eyed thinking about it. I just can't imagine what that family and the son is going through.

I love his song Cinderella and I just don't see how he will ever be able to sing that at another concert without breaking down because that was the whole point of the song that he had such a short time with his little girls. What a reminder (and one you know too well) just how short that time is. Makes me want to hug bekah and never let her go.

THank God for the promise of Heaven and the joy of seeing them again. Without that hope how can one go on?

Hope you are doing okay...I am thinking of you and your family often!
