Cafe Connections, Pickens, SC, will be hosting another women's event called, "God, You Say - Finding Joy in Who God Say's You Are". Our featured speaker will be Candace Payne, also known as the "Chewbacca Mom". In 2016, Candace reached more than 200 million people when her surprise outburst of joy at the simplest pleasure of a Star Wars mask went viral on Facebook.

Since that time Candace has gone onto publish a memoir detailing her personal journey of discovering joy called, "Laugh it Up" and a small group curriculum, "Defiant Joy: What Happens When You're Full of it". She is a beloved speaker and speaks at multiple venues throughout the year.

The event will be held at East Pickens Baptist Church, 2244 Gentry Memorial Highway, Pickens, SC 29671.
