I have heard AMAZING things about this book by Mary Beth Chapman.
I have seen her husband, Steven Curtis Chapman, in concert since the loss of their 5 year old daughter but have never heard his wife’s perspective.
Now you can see her testimony in her book “Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope.” It is on sale on Amazon for $2.99 on Amazon for a limited time.
Chapman, wife to singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman, tells the story of her life and loss in this tender memoir. Chapman discloses how unsuited she is to be the public figure spouse to a charismatic and outgoing husband. Marrying him totally upset her orderly mental image of a quiet life in the suburbs with a 9 to 5 working husband. Instead, she discovered that God gave her a life she didn’t expect that has taken her places she didn’t want to go. As Chapman tells it, fame, travel, and adoption of children took this quiet woman out of her comfort zone more times than she cares to remember. In 2008, the tragic death of their five-year-old daughter, Maria, led to still more inner heartache. The Chapmans’ story is harrowing and deeply sorrowful, yet the author finds a way to communicate their hope, faith, and love for a faithful God in every moment by grace-infused moment.
