Chad Robichaux - Marine and Martial Arts Champion, Helping Veterans Become the Warriors God Intended
Those who serve our country protecting its freedoms, oftentimes sacrifice more than just their lives. They come home physically and emotionally wounded. Though heroics are often the battle cry of warfare, the hurting of the soul in the aftermath is a reality they face alone. Enter Chad Robichaux. He almost became a statistic of the high suicide rate among veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress. As a Force Recon Marine, he served eight deployments in Afghanistan. Although trained to take on the enemy using advanced battle tactics and brute strength, he was ill prepared to face an adversary he could not see, hear, or touch. His strength as a Martial Arts Champion and a black belt in Jui Jitsu, could not defeat the enemy that lie within: depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts. He alienated his family, suffered depression, and nearly destroyed every relationship he had because he didn't have the arsenal for spiritual warfare. But then he had hope. And that hope came not from strength but from weakness... from submitting himself to God's power to heal. And that is the victory he shares with other veterans through his Mighty Oaks Foundation. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, Robichaux talks about this journey with God and his book An Unfair Advantage: Victory in the Midst of Battle, soon to be made into a movie.. He's dedicated the book to men, to "challenge and inspire them to rise up and be the warriors God created them to be." Spiritual warriors, able to claim victory over the enemy within.
