Sad NewsMay 22, 2008
In the midst of rejoicing about my Lakers coming back from 20 to win game 1 of the Western Conference Finals and David Cook winning American Idol, my heart is deeply saddenned. Steven Curtis Chapman’s youngest daughter, Maria, was killed in the driveway of their house yesterday. It was a tragic accident. Steven is one of the all-time great Christian singers, and one of the all-time great men of God. He has three naturally born children, and three daughters that he adopted from China. More than five years ago, Chapman and his wife MaryBeth founded The Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry after bringing their first adopted daughter, Shaohannah, home from China. My thoughts and prayers are with the Chapman family.
