Nashville, TN - June 15, 2010 - Sharing her personal story for the first time, Mary Beth Chapman, wife of award-winning recording artist Steven Curtis Chapman, has written the book Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope (ISBN: 978-0-8007-1991-3, $21.99, Revell). The book, which will hit shelves this September, was co-authored by Ellen Vaughn, a New York Times bestselling author and inspirational speaker.

In Choosing to SEE, Chapman bares her heart and soul as she shares honestly about her personal journey - from her childhood, to challenges of married life, to the sudden and tragic loss of a daughter. Choosing to SEE follows her lifelong wrestling match with God, questioning why the life she had planned so carefully doesn't seem to match to the plan that God has mapped out for her. The book also explores Mary Beth Chapman's relationship with God in the face of the unexpected, and in the pain of such a brutal loss. Throughout the pages, Chapman tackles these questions with grace, grit, insight, and most of all, hope.

"I have cried so many tears mixed with the sadness of missing Maria and the joy of remembering her!" Chapman writes. "I think when those tears get all mixed up together and fall, it has to water the dry places of our hearts and begin to slowly heal us..."

Mary Beth Chapman will be speaking at 12 upcoming Women of Faith conferences this year, as well as on the "A Night With the Chapman's" concert tour scheduled for this fall. She is represented by Creative Trust Literary Group located in Nashville, Tennessee.
