Candance L. Greene is a published writer, editor, and the founder of Cherishedflight, a ministry dedicated to helping women realign with the peace of God. She has produced over 70 episodes of Cherishedflight the Podcast where she shares biblical steps women can take to embrace the peace and purpose God has for their lives.
Through Cherishedflight, Candance introduced Cherishedflight the Blog, a series of reflections on topics ranging from abiding with God, to how to forgive. She's also conducted sets of blog series on the Fruit of the Spirit, Praying the Names of God and Abide In Me centering around Christ's message to His disciples in John 15:1-11.
Candance also introduced the concept of #PeaceBreaks for women who are overwhelmed by the demands of marriage, motherhood, and maintaining their careers. With the #PeaceBreak, Candance encourages women to carve out moments in their day to pray and breathe in order to deescalate stress and reconnect with the presence of God. She has conducted #PeaceBreak sessions through Cherishedflight the Podcast, as well as with live audiences.
In the spring of 2018, Candance released her book Inhale Peace: A 31-Day Journey to Realign with the Peace of God. The devotional was created as a daily guide for people to connect with the peace of God every month of the year. In July 2018, she launched Inhale Peace: Journey Through the Devotional, a video series that walks her #PeaceCollective through each day's devotional.
Candance is a graduate of Paine College where she earned a BA in English, and Goucher College where she earned an MFA in Creative Nonfiction Writing. She has been published in a variety of anthologies, scholarly books, and journals including: Bittersweet: An Anthology of Contemporary Black Women’s Poetry; Brevity: A Journal of Concise Literary Nonfiction; Fearless Confessions: A Writer’s Guide to Memoir; and the Huffington Post.
