Choosing to See by Mary Beth Chapman

I just finished this book last night...Was such a great book to read. Made me laugh and cry both at the same time. Very touching.

This is a story about Mary Beth Chapman and Steven Curtis Chapman. It's a story of how they met, the struggles of first being married, her as a mother, fighting depression, challenges of juggling life, how they came to adopt 3 beautiful girls from China and then loosing one of them when their son accidentally hit her with the car at their home. The fear for their son and how they have struggled to get through their loss.
Mary Beth is so very honest in this book. She is so encouraging, that even in the hard times, times of loss or struggles, even just being a mom that she still has hope or prays; "I believe, help my unbelief".
She adds songs in the book that go along with their life. Many of the songs we have all heard on the radio but have a different meaning as you read about their lives. From first being together, from raising kids, to his "Beauty Will Rise" CD, which is the struggles of loosing his daughter.
I highly recommend this book. I'm usually not a non-fiction type of reader but this book is worth the read!
