Additional Information About Steven Curtis Chapman & His Family
The Chapman family has 6 children including 3 adopted children.
In 2003, the Chapman’s started a non-profit organization called Show Hope which was named after their oldest adopted daughter Shaohannah Hope. It was begun to help assist families who wanted to adopt children but could not afford the initial cost.
Mary Beth Chapman wrote an excellent book called Choosing to SEE. It was about her struggles after the death of Maria.
The Chapman’s have been through a lot which is probably why Steven is such a good songwriter. He can directly relate. My husband and I have had our share of extreme heartache. If you have followed me, you know our adoption story has not been good. After all the heartache, we still believe that all children need to be adopted but at a very early age. Children deserve a loving home and have a chance to learn about God and His love for them. My children were 4 and 7 1/2 when we adopted them. They had already experienced more pain in their life than any human should have to experience. I admire the Chapman family for all they do to help orphans find loving Christian homes.
What is The Glorious Unfolding all about?
The Glorious Unfolding is the theme for the CD. Both the title of the CD and a song is called The Glorious Unfolding. The Glorious Unfolding is a collection of songs that Steven Curtis Chapman wrote about how God is Unfolding his story about his life. Life is not meaningless and over time, the pieces of your life start fitting altogether. My favorite song on this CD is called Love Take Me Over. It is his prayer to God every morning. He wants God to help show love each day in every situation. He prays “Love, take these words that I am speaking. Love, take these thoughts that I am thinking. Love take me over.” Steven is asking God to help him show love to others like God shows love to him. I believe it is easier to show love to other people when you know how much God loves you. It is a beautiful song that I need to pray every day. I have to show unending love to my adoptive children. After seven years of being in our family, they still cannot receive nor give love. When we know that God sent his Son to die for us so we can be forgiven, we have to know that God loves all of us. To me, this CD is all about:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and future.”
God is working every piece of our lives together to fit in His BIG Plan, which is what Steven Curtis Chapman’s The Glorious Unfolding is all about. I was thrilled to get my advanced copy of The Glorious Unfolding. I also have a second copy to share with someone.
