Apparently his daughter was hit in the driveway of their home by his teenage son, driving an SUV. It’s a horrible tragedy and the family definitely needs all our prayers. I can’t even imagine what they are going through right now – or what the son is having to deal with right now. Chapman’s website also includes information, along with a page dedicated to his daughter Maria.
Steven Curtis Chapman has always been one of my favorite singers and one of the very few that had an impact on me. I even got to meet him once and help out at one of his concerts. It was quite an amazing experience, to say the least. If you’ve never heard any of his songs, I’m including my favorite one in a YouTube video below. (If you don’t recognize the pictures in the video, they are about Jim Elliot, who died as a missionary when he was killed by a tribe he was trying to help.)
Let’s all keep the Chapmans in our prayers. 🙁
