Chandra Peele's Bio:

Chandra Peele, author of Cherished, Priceless, and Radiant and coauthor of Great Love (for Girls) and Great Love (for Guys), is a highly recommended speaker and author. Her latest book is Power[Full]: The Power of God in a Girl.

She has been endorsed by pastor and author Max Lucado; nationally known youth speaker David Nasser; Christian contemporary recording artist Natalie Grant; author and speaker Jennifer Kennedy Dean; and many others.

Using a high-energy, zany approach, she motivates, encourages, and equips teens to live a lifestyle of holiness. As she shares the truths of God’s Word with more than 8,000 students each year, she has audiences laughing, crying, and, more importantly, growing in the love of Christ.

She speaks straight from her heart, and God uses her authentic style to lead others to the feet of Jesus. Her passion for Christ is contagious! She believes that to have the best relationship with others, we simply must desire Jesus first. “Through His Word, prayer, and fellowship, we can each enjoy the sweetness that comes from being filled with the joy of the Lord. Then instead of chocolates or pizza, we begin to crave and want more of Jesus!”

This former minister of youth is the founder of GAB (Godly and Beautiful) Ministries, Inc., a ministry with the mission of reaching teens in a real world with a real God. She is a certified abstinence trainer and has worked with such ministries as World Hope, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Youth Specialties, and WAIT Training.

In addition, she is an advocate against human trafficking and has worked with teen moms and pregnancy care centers across the United States, as well as other programs needing assistance with at-risk children. In the past, she has written a monthly column, “Dear Gabby,” for the Christian Beacon (San Antonio) newspaper. Although she travels extensively, she and her family call Houston, Texas, home.
