Meet the Author

Chandra Peele, author of Priceless and Radiant and coauthor of Great Love (for Girls) and Great Love (for Guys), is a highly recommended speaker and author. She has been endorsed by pastor and author Max Lucado; nationally known youth speaker David Nasser; Stan Lee, founder of Dare 2 Run Ministries; and many other ministers of youth who have invited Chandra to minister to their youth.

Using a high-energy, zany approach, she motivates, encourages, and equips teens to live a lifestyle of holiness. As she shares the truths of God's Word with more than 8,000 students each year, she has audiences laughing, crying, and, more importantly, growing in the love of Christ. She speaks straight from her heart, and God uses her authentic style to lead others to the feet of Jesus. Her passion for Christ is contagious! She believes that to have the best relationship with others, we simply must desire Jesus first. “Through His Word, prayer, and fellowship, we can each enjoy the sweetness that comes from being filled with the joy of the Lord. Then instead of chocolates or pizza, we begin to crave and want more of Jesus!”

This former minister of youth is the founder of GAB (Godly and Beautiful) Ministries, Inc., a ministry with the mission of reaching teens in a real world with a real God. She is a certified abstinence trainer and has worked with such ministries as Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Youth Specialties, and WAIT Training. In addition, she frequently works with Teen Moms and pregnancy care centers across the United States, as well as other programs needing assistance with at-risk children.

She writes a monthly column, “Dear Gabby,” for the Christian Beacon (San Antonio) newspaper. Although she travels extensively, she and her family call Spring, Texas, home.

    Helpful and Biblical Guidance for Sex and Dating

    Great Love is a no-nonsense, practical, and biblical exploration into the world of sex and dating for young adults in the twenty-first century. Peale and Spears treat the issues from both a female and male perspective, respectively, providing dual insights that are often missed in other sex and dating manuals. Moreover, it has a leader's guide that accompanies a student guide which prepares the leader to deal with the issues from a biblical perspective. I would highly recommend this valuable tool for workshops, youth and church events, weekend youth retreats, and discipleship weekends such as disciplenow. Incredibly useful resource for teens and young adults.
