My heart is so sad right now. Never is it easy to hear about the death of a child, but this one strikes close. It is so hard to understand.

Steven Curtis Chapman’s daughter Maria died yesterday afternoon after an accident at their family home. Living here in Nashville, we have grown to love Steven Curtis even more. Mine and Hubby’s song is by him. He is an amazing contributor to so many good causes. We love going to his shows. He founded Shaohannah’s Hope, an adoption agency which specializes in placing orphans from all over the world. He and his family had adopted three girls from China, Maria being one of them.

I was in Franklin yesterday, near where the family lives around five o’clock. I saw the fire engines and the ambulances rushing South toward his home. As with every time I see something like that, I make a point to stop, pray, and ask that God’s will be done in the situation. At that time of course I had no idea what the emergency was. There is no explanation sometimes as to God’s will and to why He gives and why He takes away. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child. Please say prayer for the Chapman family.

  1. I just read an article about this. Her brother was driving into the driveway and didn’t see her. So tragic.

    My thoughts are with the family.

  2. I read about that this morning and my heart fell. I cannot believe something so terrible would happen to a family so wonderful.

  3. I hadn’t even heard about this until you posted this, so thanks for sharing! My prayers are with the family.

  4. That’s so awful. I can’t even imagine what their family must be going through. I will pray for them, especially for the brother – because at least she is in a better place, he will have to live. I can’t even fathom what that must be like.

    I used to love Steven Curtis Chapman. (You and hubby’s song? I wanted that to be MY wedding song. But it ended up being a song written by my husband. So, I can’t complain!)

    (I had no idea he had adopted children. That is so very cool.)
