Dear, dear Chapman family--
We will be praying for you to experience the peace which passes all understanding. It comes only from the God you have served so faithfully.

Dear Steven and family,
Our family is saddened at the traegdy that has happened in the life of your family. My mom and I heard the news on WRBS 95.1 Baltimore, Maryland and we turned off the radio and prayed. We prayed that you will lean on the hope given to you in Christ as a anchor for you to lean on in this difficult time. It is a blessing, Steven, that God inspired you to write that song "With Hope". May the message of that song, backed up by the truths of Gospel, comfort you and your family in this hard time. Remember also that God is still on his throne and that He is with and for your family during this hard time. May in this valley you face, you find brothers and sisters in Christ standing with you in this hard time.

Love,
The Moore Family from Abingdon, Maryland (Don, Linda, Michael, Stephen)

Dearest Chapman Family,

Our thoughts and prayers are with you this day. May the Lord lift your family and others through this tragic accident. We so enjoyed your concert @ Landmark Cincinnati this past Feb. My husband help to load in & load out your band and equipment and was so blessed by all in your group. Our hearts are broken and filled with sadness. We love you!

My love, thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time. God will see you through this. You have so inspired me with your music and your family's testimony of love and service for God. I am especially praying for your son.

What a precious video that is of your sweet baby girl. My prayers are with you and your family as you grieve the loss of this precious child. I cannot begin to imagine what you are going through. May God's love envelope your family at this time.

I am so sad for the Chapman family . . . words seem so inadequate. As a mom who has lost a daughter, I know some of the pain, emptiness and grief you are feeling. I am so grateful the Lord Jesus has promised to go with us through these troubled times. He is SO NEAR -- and as much as your family loves Maria, the Lord Jesus loves her more and this has not taken him by surprise at all. He is in control -- and he is sovereign. Heaven will indeed be SO SWEET. I am so sorry for your great loss. May it be a comfort that we are all grieving with you and are holding you up in prayer continually. Psalm 145:13

Cindy S.

Dear Steven, Beth, and family,

Our heart is just broken for you and you all will be in our prayers. Precious Maria is home now and may God surround you with peace and grace to get through the grief and sadness of missing her here. We love you all!

Mark and Karen Foster, Federal Way, WA.

Mark and I would like to share our sympathy with the Chapman family at the loss of their little girl, Maria. The Lord blesses those who mourn and we mourn with you and pray for His inner peace. For the driver also, a special prayer as you find the forgiveness God has granted you along side your family. Draw strength from their love for you as you heal from this loss. In His hands always, Karen and Mark Foster

Dearest Chapman Family,
I am deeply saddened by your tragic loss. Maria is now in the arms of Jesus "without a care in the world"...

Dear Chapman family,
The prayers of our family will certainly be with you. The video blog introduced us to a precious little girl. I pray that God's arms of comfort will be very real to you at this time.

I had the opportunity to sit in the front row to hear/watch you sing in Grand Rapids last year. Your love for your family is so obvious in your presentation, and I won't even pretend to understand the pain you must be feeling. I pray for your son who must be broken beyond anything I can imagine. The Lord be with you all. Let the Lord be your strength as you struggle through these times.

Cindy

I am so very sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. She looks like she brought you so much joy. I will be praying for your whole family. May the Lord and his Blessed Mother wrap their arms around you to bring you comfort.

Leslie Horwood

May you find comfort in knowing that the Lord is there with his arms wrapped so tightly around you and your family. My cousins son was 6 years old when he was killed in a car accident four years ago and we know the pain that you are feeling at this time. I have you so close in my prayers.

God Bless you and your family,
Leslie (Texas)

Susan

Steven and Beth, I've listened to Steven's music for a long time. As parents who have lost a child...we're so sorry. It eventually gets easier to bear. Our Father be with you and with your family and particularly your son. We can only imagine his pain over an accident to his beloved baby sister.

I heard the tragic news this morning on a Christian radio station. My heart went out to your family. i have not stopped thinking about and praying for your family since then. The heartfelt messages and prayers from the callers at the radio station were very moving. You have so many prayers on your family's behalf right now. We can never forget to dance with our "cinderellas", what a beautiful song and reminder that we are not promised tomorrow with them, so cherish everyday! Thanks so much for touching our lives through the years with your songs and your family's faith!! You are an inspiration to so many!

John and Sherry Jeffries

Dear Chapman Family,

We are so sad for this tremendous loss to your family. Our hearts are broken for you and we are praying for you. We can only offer words to help comfort but we know the only comfort is in our gracious Father's hand. We will be praying for peace to settle in your hearts and all the days of your lives. We love you.

In Christ's Love,
The Jeffries Family in Dyersburg, TN

John and Sharon Konior

Our hearts and prayers are with your family. We lost a family child and our only strength was through Jesus Christ since she was his child afterall and we felt he needed her with HIM for some reason. GOD Bless you all during this time.

Frances

I am so sorry for your loss and also for the pain your son must be suffering at this moment. You already know that Maria is with Jesus at this moment and being loved like never before. My prayers are with each of you but especially with your son as he deals with this. I know Jesus will surround each of you with His peace that cannot be explained. As Jesus is holding Maria, He is also holding each of you.

annette johnson

the loss of a child is the most difficult thing a person can go through the loss of my grandchild in 2005 taught me this:everyone has a set time on earth god knows when and why. everything even the most tragic happens for a reason keep your faith and cling to your family don't let anger win. becaus if you let it it will.
live your life as she would have wanted knowing she is safe and waiting for you. on the other side hug your son he probably will need you most in this to know that it is not his fault he loved her too. god loves you and she is safe on angles wings

Dawn Finch

Dear Steven and Family,

My husband and I had the honor of being at your concert at Overlake Christian church this past weekend. We were once again touched by the love you have for your family and for God. You beam brightly as you speak of your love for your family and God. We pray that you all will draw even closer together as a family as you rely on each other and our heavenly Father. May you feel the comfort of all the prayers that are being lifted up to our God of Grace and Peace.

Blessings and much love,
From the Finch Family in Ferndale WA
