Motivational moments with Dr. Angela Chester

Encouraging and Equipping 


I love how patient God is with us. No matter how many times we mess up, drop the ball, stubbornly refuse, or just don't have a clue, He gives us far more grace and chances to transform our lives than most of us are willing to give ourselves. I’ve overcome quite a few challenges in my life – from divorce to cancer - and what others used to bring shame, I now allow to shine. No one has it all together all the time; there's no such thing as a perfect person (yep, including them..lol).  I share my messes that God has transformed into a message of hope, perseverance, and faith. 

As a breast cancer survivor, she speaks from a very personal place. Sharing her story - the moment you hear the word CANCER to a successful. recovery. What being a "survivor" means the first years., and what being cancer free means 8 years later. 

Dr. Angela Butts Chester will inspire your audience to believe again - to believe that there is still a hope. Life is different but who says it can't be better. Learn to live the life you've always wanted in spite of cancer.
