Christian Comedian Chonda Pierce  “Enough” In Theaters for One Night Only

Christian comedian Chonda Pierce, second documentary “Enough” hitting  select theaters for one night only April 25th.

Chonda PiercePierce, who likes to borrow a line from Lucille Ball,  “I’m not funny; I’m brave,”  considers herself brave enough to share aspects of her life in humor that heals the heart.

“We are still in a culture where thousands of women are trying to identify themselves with something, either to have a man, or to get the job they want, to be the size that culture is telling them they have to be,” Pierce told Baptist Press. “So women are bombarded with this thought that I am not enough. I am less than.”

Pierce has only turned the corner in the last few months herself, she told BP, on her journey to thrive after the 2014 death of her husband David, who battled alcohol addiction during their 31-year marriage and died during surgery to treat a stroke.

You realize “that you’re breathing again and laughing again,” she said two weeks before the film’s release. “You just have to walk the road. There’s no easy way around it,” said Pierce, who has suffered abuse, depression, rejection and loss in her journey of 57 years.

“God is always faithful, and you have to stay faithful to Him, and you start breathing again.”

The Christian comedian hopes the 90-minute film, continuing her story after the 2015 “Laughing in the Dark” documentary on her depression and other struggles, will help women see they are enough to live the life God has for them.

“I think that the feeding ground for Satan to grow into the mind of a woman is that you’re never going to measure up, when you and I both know that the great, beautiful, merciful side of Jesus is that we are now heirs to the King,” Pierce said. “We are a princess in His eyes. Our Daddy is the Big Daddy, the Mac Daddy.”

Amen!
