Candace - Your Teacher

The world knows Candace Payne as “Chewbacca Mom,” the wife and mother from Dallas who captured hearts around the world with what became Facebook Live’s top video. But what the video doesn’t show is Candace’s storied journey of daunting obstacles on the way to the joy-filled life—extreme poverty, past trauma, and struggles with self-worth. Her book Laugh It Up! tells the story behind the woman in the Chewbacca mask.
