Candace Payne chats about defiant joy & her new book Laugh It UP Author, speaker and Chewbacca Mom, Candace Payne (a viral sensation with over 170M FB views) chats with us about Joy and her new book Laugh It Up. She shares how her family handled tough times. Dire situations and/or hardship (including homelessness) "were never a defining attitude that crushed our entire day - it was a small, brief roadblock or little speed-bump for us to get over." Which led to her contemplating joy and the impact it has in our lives. "Joy is that the thing that satisfies; it lasts beyond whatever is happening around you" - something for which we all long.
