Happy Hour #179: Candace Payne

My guest for The Happy Hour # 179 is Candace Payne. On the show today, you'll get to know the woman behind the Chewbacca Mask whose video became a viral sensation and the most-viewed Facebook Live video to date. Candace is a speaker and author of Laugh It Up: Embrace Freedom and Experience Defiant Joy, and the small-group curriculum, Defiant Joy: What Happens When You’re Full Of It. Candace and I start the show discussing all things movies by playing "Skip It or Ticket" and you'll learn how much I know about Star Wars (hint: I may have fallen asleep during one of the movies!). Candace shares how posting her Chewbacca Mask video changed her life literally overnight, and what it has been like to experience fame so quickly. Candace opens up about struggles her family has endured, including a time when they were homeless. Candace reminds us that through God we always have access to joy and freedom no matter the circumstances, and it's up to us to choose to fight for it. Candace will make you laugh and encourage you to embrace and experience joy, and I know you'll love my conversation with her. {You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends.
