Meet Steven Curtis Chapman

Meet Steven, a man whose love for God and the Bible is expressed through excellent song.

He has earned more awards than any other Christian singer.

But Steven didn’t aspire to be famous. He came from a musical family in Kentucky, where he learned to love God and love song.

Steven raised a musical family of six children—three adopted—with his wife, Mary Beth.

His daughter Maria was tragically killed when she was five, leaving her family to exercise their unshakable hope in the face of unimaginable grief.

Steven started an organization called Show Hope, to financially assist people wanting to adopt.

Steven's Vision for Life

by Steven Curtis Chapman

God, I want to be your man and I want to communicate, because time is short. I want to live with that sense with the music I make, with the art I make, with the way I love my kids, with the way I am a father and a husband and a friend and a follower of Christ, I want to live with reckless abandonment to the truth of the Gospel.

See quote source

Put it all in the hands
of the Father,
give it up, give it all over
to the only one who can
turn it into something beautiful.

Maria Sue Chapman's Story

by Show Hope


I believe God weeps
over death.
Jesus wept at the grave of Lazarus.
In the Bible, Jesus weeps at death.

Job 1:21 NIV

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart.
The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised.”


Taste and see
that the Lord is good; 
blessed is
the one who
takes refuge in him.

Psalm 34:8 NIV
