This Christian Comedian Put Aside The Funny To Share Her Painful Memories

Besides my mother, Chonda Pierce is my hero. Chonda Pierce is so much more than just one of the most hilarious people on the planet, she isn't just a wonderful singer and songwriter, a daughter, sister, wife and mother, she is a walking inspiration, a walking testimony. A few years back I had turned my back on God, I was doing drugs, achohal, stealing, the whole nine yards. My mother was really into the gaither tapes and I actually still liked them too. I guess there was a part of me that never forgot about God and watching the tapes made me feel closer to God, even if it was just for a moment. We saw Chonda on one of the tapes and loved her, so we decided to look into her more. We bought one of her books and even had it autographed, and after reading about her life story, I was inspired to give God another try. She may never know it until we get to heaven, but in a way, it's like God brought Chonda in my life to encourage me and to draw me to the Lord.

Anyway, here she talks about the deaths of her two sisters, the absense of her earthly father, and the hope her heavenly father gave her.
