Grieving with Hope *updated with video link*

Today on Good Morning America the Chapman Family were interviewed. They are working through their grief after the loss of their precious Maria Sue in May. Their faith is strong. As Steven so wonderfully put it, 'We are a family of great faith a lot of people say, but we're a family with a lot of questions. But that's what faith is, it's living with the questions.'

You can see the enitre interview here.

Steven and Mary Beth will also be sharing their story on the Larry King Live show on Thursday, August 7th.

Continuing to pray for this very special family.


  1. What a beautiful interview and so heartfelt. I could feel the love they have for their children in my soul. I love one of the first lines of the interview where it states (as they showed Maria Sue singing), "Singing is a gift that comes naturally in this family..."
    What a way to honour this family. Thank you for sharing this today.

  2. Beautifully done. They are a wonderful example for all of us in so many ways.

  3. Thank you for posting the interview. I pray to have a faith that sustaining and strong...and I wish to add my prayers for the Chapman family as they move forward together.

  4. Oh, to have the faith and spiritual maturity of this incredible family.....

  5. Thank you for sharing this. I am admire this family so much for moving on after such sadness.

    Keep smilin!

  6. Such a wonderful interview...I cried my eyes out!

    My thoughts and prayers go out to that family!

  7. To be honest Catherine, I had a lot of difficulty watching this interview...and in fact....left before it was finished. I thought is was so well done...and my respect for the Chapman family is so great. I know Mary Beth said so clearly, with the heart of a mother, that she didn't care about being an example....she just wanted Maria back....I felt like someone was squeezing my heart, so much did I feel gridf for this entire family. Whether they want to be or not...once cannot help but become stronger in faith, in belief...and in perserverance.

    The prayers of my family continue to be with this beautiful family...and in fact all families that have had a similar loss...I cannot imagine the pain...

    Lovely post...and thank you for the reminder that we must continue to lift up those in grief...


  8. I cried my eyes out too..she held it together so well.....I would not have been that strong.

  9. I can only pray that I never am put through such a test. And I can only hope that, if I do face such a trial, my faith and spiritual maturity sustain me so well.
