Episode 11: Candace Payne

Take the Stage - for Speakers, by Speakers

Do you remember Chewbacca Mom?  Four minutes of pure joy on Facebook live over four years ago.  The woman with the infectious laugh is Candace Payne. Candace joins me and shares how, just a few weeks before the video went viral, she stepped out in faith and onto a stage and told her story at a conference.  It was on that stage Candace she felt like she finally belonged.  "I knew this is what I'm supposed to be doing.  "I didn't even know how to do it -- number one, I've never been told I could, or that I should and I've never been allowed."I knew that this was what I wanted to do with my life.  Just a few weeks later -- the video goes viral.  Candace shares about serving in a variety of areas of ministry -- from worship leader to creative planner -- but she never felt like she was a good fit for any of these areas.  But she served -- in all manner of areas. We talk about her speaking style, which Candace refers to as an echo chamber of what God is saying to her.  She shares how she is intentional to serve the audience who sits before her -- and she leans into God to serve them well. Fluff has to go -- 'break our addiction to recreation' and we have avoided the hard topics for so long.  Speakers are called to encourage, strengthen, and comfort those she serves.
