Rachel and Mary Scott are SO thrilled to have one of the most fun guests on the show this week, Candace Payne. Candace is an author, speaker and viral sensation. Her 2016 Facebook Live video, which shows her trying on a Chewbacca Mask, holds the record for the most-viewed Facebook Live video in history (170+ million views) and resulted in her becoming internationally known as “Chewbacca Mom.” She has been featured in more than 3,000 media outlets including “Good Morning America,”
“The Late Late Show with James Corden,” The New York Times, PEOPLE, and Cosmopolitan. She is the author of Laugh It Up, Defiant Joy, Simple Joys and Consider It Joy. Candace lives in Texas with her husband, two children, and ornery pugs.
Overnight Candace went from a normal mom sharing funny videos with friends on Facebook to a Youtube sensation. Her story is incredible and we can’t wait for you to hear all about it from her perspective. We also talk about her new book, Simple Joys: Discovering the Wonder in the Everyday. Candace is SUCH a joy and we loved our conversation with her. We can’t wait for you to listen!

I am an online encourager based out of Birmingham, AL that's obsessed with my girls and sharing bits and pieces of my life. I wear a lot of hats these days including mama to two boys, military wife, blogger, podcast host and more. You can find me behind the microphone at Real Talk with Rach where we talk about everything from jeans to Jesus, playlists to pop culture, the good and the grief and everything in between.
I'm Rachel, your online soul sister!
