Run Like a Woman

Bindi Cole Chocka is an award-winning artist with a remarkable story of transformation. From a difficult childhood to finding Jesus in prison, we talk forgiveness + family, cancel culture + creativity. It's a tear-jerker!

Show Notes

After a traumatic upbringing, Bindi Cole Chocka first encountered Jesus inside a prison cell, before going on to become a prolific artist and raise a family of her own.

In the last 12 years, Bindi has held 25 solo shows, been in over 60 group exhibitions and has been shortlisted for 18 art prizes and won or placed in 6. However, since 2018, she became 'The Cancelled Artist' due to her conservative Christian views.

Bindi's story is gut-wrenching at times yet a powerful testament of God's love, forgiveness, and grace.

“Hearing raw, honest stories from other Christian women is a truly powerful thing. Even if their experience is different to mine, I have found it relatable and often healing. It resonates with me for a long time afterwards." – a Run Like a Woman listener
