Publisher's Summary

For decades Steven Curtis Chapman's music and message have brought hope and inspiration to millions around the world. Now, for the first time, Steven openly shares the experiences that have shaped him, his faith, and his music in a life that has included incredible highs and faith-shaking lows.

Listeners will be captivated by this exclusive look into Steven's childhood and challenging family dynamic growing up, how that led to music and early days on the road, his wild ride to the top of the charts, his relationship with wife Mary Beth, and the growth of their family through births and adoptions. In addition to inside stories from his days of youth to his notable career, including the backgrounds to some of his best-loved songs, listeners will walk with Steven down the devastating road of loss after the tragic death of five-year-old daughter Maria. And they'll experience his return to the stage after doubting he could ever sing again.

Poignant, gut-wrenchingly honest, yet always hopeful, Steven offers no sugary solutions to life's toughest questions. Yet out of the brokenness, he continues to trust God to one day fix what is unfixable in this life. This backstage look at the down-to-earth superstar they've come to love will touch fans' lives and fill their hearts with hope.

    "The Story Behind The Songs"

    An honest, open, heart rendering autobiography of one of my favorite performers. As a result of this book, I will hear Steven Curtis Chapman's songs with new insights and compassion. Every person has a story on this great adventure called life, but don't ever assume you know it without knowing the person. Highly recommend!

    Story
    "A heartfelt, transparent look at life."

    This book is humble. It shows life through the lens of reality, accepting that life can be hard and that trials are inevitable. It accepts that though we ma have faith in God, life is still going to be tough and painful. Yet, we keep our eyes on Him, asking and praying for His will to be done. Wonderful message and narration.

    "Amazing Testimony"

    Excellent listen. Well read as though by Steven himself.
    Steven shares an amazing testimony of Gods direction and provision. From birth to Gods leading in music, adoption, family and faith. He allows the reader inside the profound pain of loss and the victory over the enemy.
    Thank you Steven and family. You truly will overcome by the word of your testimony.

    "Long time fan"

    I enjoyed the story. My only problem was the narrator. It could have been so much better if SCC did the reading. I had to speed up the narrator to get through it.
