A Journey of Struggle and Hope
From the beginning, Mary Beth Chapman’s life was not how she planned. All she wanted was a calm, peaceful life of stability and control. Instead, God gave her an award-winning singer / songwriter husband, crazy schedules, and a houseful of creatively rambunctious children. And then, she experienced the tragedy she never could have imagined.
In Choosing to See, Mary Beth unveils her struggle to allow God to write the story of her life, both the happy chapter and the tragic ones. And as the story unfolds, she’s been forced to wrestle with some of life’s biggest questions: Where is God when things fall apart? Why does God allow terrible things to happen? How can I survive hard times?
No matter where you find yourself in your own life story, you will treasure the way Mary Beth shows that even in the hard times, there is hope if you choose to see.

“Mary Beth has an important story to tell that starts long before the accident. It’s a story of heartache, betrayal, depression, and loss. Yet her encouragement to us is that there is hope—sporing is coming.” —Mark (of Casting Crowns) and Melanie Hall
