From the beginning, Mary Beth Chapman’s life was not how she planned. All she wanted was a calm, peaceful life of stability and control. God gave her an award-winning singer/songwriter husband, crazy schedules, and a houseful of creatively rambunctious children. Most difficult of all, God’s plans for her also included tragedy.
In Choosing to See, Mary Beth unveils her struggle to allow God to write the story of her life, both the happy chapters and the tragic ones. As this story unfolds, she’s been forced to wrestle with some of life’s biggest questions: Where is God when things fall apart? Why does God allow terrible things to happen? How can I survive hard times?
No matter where you find yourself in your own life story, you will treasure the way Mary Beth shows that even in the hard times, there is hope if you choose to SEE.
I attended Women of Faith at the time right after Steven and Mary Beth’s Tragedy with her daughter. I loved his song he wrote about his daughter. I just cried my eyes out. However, there is always someone at Women of Faith that would touch me in such a way where I would cry. I had gone to about every conference from about 2007 to ?2012 or so. Our church used to go as a group, but when we couldn’t get tickets in advance anymore without paying $5,000 upfront we had to quit going. I really do miss this conference as I looked forward to it every year.
