Chapmans' family tour will share pain and joy

The Chapmans pose for a photo outside their Nashville home.

The family of Christian music singer Steven Curtis Chapman has been very open about the pain they have felt since the death of Maria Sue Chapman two years ago.

The 5-year-old was accidentally struck by a SUV driven by one of her brothers, in the family's driveway in May 2008. The family has shared their journey of grief with their fans through media interviews.

Steven Curtis Chapman also sang of his pain and his hope for the future in his most recent album, "Beauty Will Rise," and his wife, Mary Beth, has written a book, "Choosing to See," in which she talked about the challenges of her life, including Maria Sue's passing.
