Mary Beth was clinically depressed. "The Live Adventure" was very close to never happening after Mary Beth was clinically diagnosed with depression. Their marriage was in a tough place, and Steven was gone all the time recording and in meetings. They really considered and prayed about not going through with the tour because of the help Mary Beth needed at home, but in the end they knew the tour had to happen. If that particular tour didn't launch, Steven's career would probably not be what it is today. It really rocketed Steven's fame and popularity throughout the Christian music community.

Talking about his two sons, Will and Caleb, who were like 3 and 5 years old at the time, Steven tells the audience "Pray for Will Franklin. Mary Beth and I would like to see him reach 4, but we're not sure Caleb has the same goal." He had mentioned earlier that Caleb loved to play with his little brother (Will) but sometimes Will didn't always want to play the games Caleb wanted to play; and that sometimes Caleb's idea of playing with Will meant inflicting pain on him.
was transpiring. This is from the song "11/6/64" which tells Mary Beth how special Steven's life became on the day she was born. He played this for one of the first times in front of an audience at a conference called "Rekindling the Romance", and of course all the women were melted into puddles, and the husbands were like "yeah thanks Steve, just hand us the crappy husband award now." Hey, it takes a special guy to write songs like this for his sweetheart!
I Love My Lips. Although Caleb co-wrote "See the Glory" with Steven, they did not record it together. The Chapman boys were actually asked to be a part of a recording for a Veggie Tales album by various artists. So, they chose "I Love My Lips", and did a really creative arrangment of it.
