Most Requested Topics
1. Finding God Through Pain It is so easy to pull away when we are in pain. We isolate from others, and sometimes we even isolate from God. We then find ourselves feeling alone and afraid when God has promised to be our present help in times of needs. In Finding God Through Pain, Chou shares how pain, both emotional and physical, brought her closer to God and how you can find God in your painful experiences as well.
2. Rise Up
Chou has endured sexual, emotional, and spiritual abuse, as well as rejection, betrayal, depression, anxiety, and a load of health issues. Instead of seeing these challenges as opportunities to give up, Chou learned how to rise above her circumstances and she now teaches others to do the same. She wants you to know that, “when we turn our stumbling blocks into stepping stones, we find joy on the journey.”
3. You got one life to live
After having a stroke at the age of 33, Chou was awakened to her own mortality. She now lives each moment with eternity in mind and teaches others how to make their lives count. Chou reminds you that you have one life to live, so live it well, live it fully.
4. Do you know who you are?
Identity crisis is what kills our faith, our joy, and our peace. We give so much power to the devil and everything else in the world, that we forget to claim and reclaim who we are in Christ. When Chou realized who she was, she no longer lived by the world’s expectations or standards. Instead, she started dancing to the beat of her own drum, to the tune that her Heavenly Father gave her. She is now a woman who knows who she is. Do you know who you are?
