Candia, Vice President

candia national director

Life is a journey, mine has brought me here. At this point, I love my life, I am blessed with a wonderful family and I am walking out the purpose and destiny that God has for me. This wasn’t always the case. After many years of addiction, abuse, rejection, hopelessness, and life in the sex industry, Jesus rescued me. It wasn’t over there. After all the guilt and shame, and brokenness, He healed me. It took time, it wasn’t overnight.

My message is one of hope, healing, and restoration. My main purpose is to share my story and to help those hurting, to let them know they are not alone. If he has done it for me, He will do it for others. My desire is to help people find their identity in Christ. To overcome the lies with the truth and bring the light to the dark places. My heart is to connect people to the heart of the Father but also be a connection to the resources around them.

My goal is to start the conversation and have it continued within the church. Conversations that lead to small groups and the start of ministries. To aid existing ministries with the help of books, resources and study guides. To also be a point of connection for these ministries. Prevention is also key. I’ll talk about tough topics such as Sex Trafficking and Pornography, the problem, the effects and what can be done.

I’m honored to be a part of The Priceless Journey. Through speaking at churches, conferences, groups and events, I look forward to sharing my story and helping people find their identity. With all my heart, I want to help people to know they are Priceless. This is the journey.
