Pray for Stephen Curtis Chapman and Family

When I saw people saying pray for the Chapman's I thought of SCC, but I thought, no there are other people with that name... well it was for them... here is what the website said...

Maria Sue Chapman, adopted and youngest daughter to Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, was killed Wednesday night in a tragic accident in the family driveway on Wednesday evening. She was LifeFlighted to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital but for only reasons God can explain she went home to Him... not to Franklin as we all so desperately wanted.

Your prayers are needed for all in the Chapman family. This is a family who has so generously loved and given to so many. Just hours before this close knit family was celebrating the engagement of the oldest daughter Emily Chapman, and were just hours away from a graduation party marking Caleb Chapman's completion of high school. Now, they are preparing to bury a child who blew out 5 candles on a birthday cake less than 10 days ago. These words are unthinkable to type. - Jim Houser (Manager)

I am truly heart broken for this family! We need to pray pray pray!!!

SCC wrote a song for his new 3 daughters called Cinderella. It is a must hear, but it is also a Kleenex box song! (it has always been a tear jerker, but especially now... look at the lyrics). Since he is a musician, his life was hectic with his first 3 (birth) children. When he adopted his last 3, he decided he needed a change. This song is about enjoying your kids while you can... here is a taste of the lyrics... you need to go to itunes to buy it though...

"so I will dance with Cinderella, whiles she is here in my arms, cause I know something the prince never knew. I will dance will Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song, cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone."

To the Chapman family, even if you never read this... Maria Sue is dancin for Jesus now, and she is waiting until y'all come to be with her too! ♥


  1. Wow. This just shows how fleeting life can be. We need to love our loved ones as much as we can while we have time here on earth. We need to hold on to Christ as with Him there are no goodbyes that last forever for those in Him.

    What a tradgedy to happen to such a God loving family. This shows that we as Christians are not exempt to trouble in this lives but we experience them as those who have hope and God uses them to bring us closer to Him.

    I will definitely be praying for their family.

  2. i like what Bryan said, what a tear-jerker that was to read. We are so very blessed, and my heart is with that family!

  3. I love Stephen Curtis Chapman's music and can hardly fathom the nightmare he and his family are facing.

    They are in my prayers but it's reassuring to know that his sweet little Cinderella has met the Prince of Peace.
