Your voice is a treasure

Your voice carries a unique sound
It is a treasure within
That is often taken for granted until you are unable to speak
Will you use your treasure, your voice?
Your voice carries a distinct sound

Speak life with boldness and confidence
Be courageous with your treasure
Speak a kind word
Sing a song or whisper a prayer
This treasure is yours

Someone needs to hear your voice
There is no need to be silent, your voice has been restored.
Fear and shame tried to forfeit this treasure
The chains have been broken
A new level of freedom has arose
Rise in faith and declare with your voice
You are more than a conqueror
This storm that you are facing will not destroy you, Abba has you in His hands

Use your voice to tell yourself and others
You can make it, and you won’t fail
Sing, shout or whisper if you may
Don’t delay using your treasure
The world needs to hear your gift

Candace Taylor was born and raised in a small town in Ohio. She attended Georgia State University and received her B.S. in Exercise Science.
In 2016, she was diagnosed with CRPS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. Through the journey of living with chronic debilitating pain and applying her faith in God, she encouraged herself to change the acronym to Conqueror Rising Past Storms.

Candace is a servant leader, and she has ministered to many in her administrative and volunteer work for conferences, events, the Healthy Explosion program and singing on the worship team.

While becoming ill with covid-19, she was unable to speak beyond a whisper for 5 months and learned the value of honoring (or celebrating) the simple things in life.

Candace is a Health Advocate, and her story has been featured on CBS, the New York Times and the Make Good Together platform among others.

She is passionate about helping others through the intersection of music and health.

She has created her own apparel line to bring awareness about CRPS, and continues to be a voice of encouragement to people across the globe battling chronic illness.

Her motto is to be a Courageous, Resilient, Powerful, Solider, no matter what life may bring, and to always remember that you are more than a conqueror.
