Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain…John 15:16a

Sight Before Seeing
Choosing To See takes us inside the private world of Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman. It is a world sprinkled with the good, the bad and the ugly that life metes out, yet through it all, their faith has been the thread holding them together.
The loss of a child is nothing any parent can prepare for. Rescuing the family from the aftermath is a journey that can only be made with God. With God the Chapman’s are making the journey back to wholeness. The trip has not been without stumbles, pain, depression and many shed tears. It is however one Mary Beth has chosen to tell via the sharing of her most private thoughts letters, and personal events.
This is by no means an easy read, but one that can be of help to those dealing with tragic family loss and depression.Mary Beth is to be commended for her courage and her generosity is Choosing to See beyond human sight.
