Watched it, cried and was encouraged. I hope I raise my children to have a close relationship with their SAvior and each other

What a great interview. I'm so glad they took this opportunity.

When I listened to Mary Beth speak, it was like hearing myself about a year ago. I remember at the funeral and days afterward, people would tell me how God was going to use this in such great and wonderful ways. I snapped at one point and said, "I don't care if this sparks a Billy Graham crusade. I just want my Robbie back!" Even though this may seem selfish or foolish to others, it is an honest reaction. I am glad they were both so honest about the way this has affected them.

Grief is a crazy, unpredictable journey (and very very long)! But we can now say:

"My ears had heard of You, but now my eyes have seen You." Job 42:5

I still can't imagine going through everything they have been through all the while being in the public's eye. My heart aches for them.

Cate said...

What a wonderful interview!

I don't know this precious family, and yet I've grieved for them the past three months.

The words of Mary Beth are so right on. My nephew endured a terrible illness, and, praise the Lord, recovered, but walking through it was the worst experience of my life, and he's not even my child. Have I seen God use it, absolutely, but that doesn't change the fact that I wish it had never happened to begin with.

My prayers for this precious family will continue.

Terry said...

Watched the interview and weeped. I'm sure tomorrow night will bring out even more emotion as it will be an entire hour.

The Chapman's are in my prayers several times each day. There are times when I have to stop what I'm doing and pray for them because that tug at my heart is so intense. I can't explain why I feel so strongly about a family I've never met.

Praying and knowing that God will change lives as so many hear His word through the Chapman's hope and faith.

they are still in my prayers. I was very moved...
I too loved and was very touched by MB's comment. I feel it was so much more "REAL" than people who try to act holy and say they are so grateful for the good things such a tragedy brings.
I continue to pray for Will as well.

Denise C said...

OH Gwen.....I sat there and cried with them....such a precious family...living their tragedy in public view....and through it all...showing the world HIS HOPE....HIS PEACE...and HIS GRACE!

Such amazing people of GOD!
I pray for them daily....May GOD blanket all of them with HIS blessings!

My Mom and I watched it this morning she sobbed through the whole program- They are constantly in our thoughts and prayers......

Tracy said...

My mom called and told me to turn it on. I'm so thankful to that precious family for the powerful witness they choose to demonstrate to a watching world.

Steffie B. said...

I watched it and I was so moved by MB's comments as well.....it is hard as a Mom....thanks for sharing the reminder with us....hugs girl...miss you! ;)

The Shingletons said...

What a beautiful job! It was so good and so real. I, too, understood, in a different way, when she said that she felt cold by thinking how she didn't care that it helped others. When we lost our baby, people kept telling me that throught this, God would use me to help others. I felt like such a horrible person for not caring about that! I just wanted my baby in my arms! Yes, God is using it now, but at the time, you feel guilty for feeling that way, but like Mary Beth said, it's the heart of a mother.

nikki said...

I sobbed thru it all, of course, and will be watching tonite as well.
I love this sweet family and pray for them all the time, for although they are inspiring - their pain is raw and SO real.

Laura Nipper said...

So heartbreaking.I cried through most of the interview. What an amazing family the Chapmans are. Our prayers continue to go out to this family.

emily said...

Watched, cried and continue to be amazed at the faith they live! What witnesses for Christ- they are living authentic lives before others.

Praying for them...........

Mallory said...

Just watched Larry King Live and still have tears in my eyes. My prayers will continue for them. The part about the verse in the song cinderella was so amazing cant exactly remember what was said but that he will dance with her again.

Kristi J said...

Kathi said...

Bella's momma said...

It was a beautiful testimony of their love for each other and their faith in our heavenly Father.

Tiffany said...

WE WERE ABLE TO SEE IT HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were SO excited that the Larry King Live show airs here!

Bawled, laughe with them, and was totally encouraged how God is working through them during this time.

Hard stuff but beauty from ashes is all i can say.

jennifer said...

I cried like a baby during both. They did such a great job on LKL, but Larry made me mad that he couldn't remember Maria's name!!

Michelle said...

Hi Gwen,
I watched both GMA and LKL. What an amazing family!! They are still in my prayers.

p.s. I know you are good friends with Emily. I was so impressed by her comments. I'm sure that she would rather have been anywhere than doing an interview regarding the loss of her little sister, but she is wise beyond her years. What a tremendous family.

Heather said...

My heart remains heavy and burdened for their family, especially sweet Will - I know God is big enough to get them through, but I almost cheered when MB said that she didn't care whose life it changed or what good came from it, right now she was a mother who wanted her baby back...truth, pure and simple truth - just love them even more than all the orginal reasons I loved them:) Standing right in that gap.

Love ya Gwen!
Heather

Kelly said...

There really are no words, but WOW--what a wonderful family. They are so real. Praying for them, still.

Erica said...

I watched. I prayed. I cried. May God be glorified through this incredible family despite a heart wrenching tragedy.
