Please pray for the family of Steven Curtis Chapman

I took this from Lulaville...

Please lift up the family of Steven Curtis Chapman (a contemporary Christian artist, for those of you not familiar with him), as his youngest daughter, Maria Sue, age 5, was accidentally killed yesterday. Steven's son did not see his little sister in driveway and she was struck by his Toyota Land Cruiser. His wesbite has more information, as well as a link to a precious video of Maria:

I cannot even begin to fathom what this family is going through, especially Maria Sue's big brother. I'm sure the family covets our prayers during this most difficult time.

Steven currently has an enormous hit with his song, "Cinderella," which is about watching his daughters grow. How bittersweet.


  1. The Chapman family has been on my mind and heart all day. My 6 year old has asked so many questions about what happened, and tonight she reminded me that we needed to pray for the family. Sob-sob-sob. Cannot even fathom such a loss...

  2. Thank you for sharing this.Tears are streaming down my face. All of my prayers and thoughts go out to this poor family. I lost my 3 year old four years ago.. I have been touched today by your talent,creativity,and realness. I am looking forward to working with a woman with such depth and character.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a note!
