Hey there! I’m Dawn!

I am passionate about Jesus, loving people, and serving my community. Oh, and coffee. More specifically lattes of all shapes and sizes. When I am not at work, you’ll find me often in coffee shops, more than likely meeting with friends, writing, or reading a good book.

Oh yeah, and then one time, I actually wrote a book…you can check that out here.

I love helping people learn how they are known by God, encourage them to desire more out of their life by knowing God can do immeasurably more, and seeking unity by loving our neighbors as ourselves.

Ephesians 4:1-3 has become a life verse for me:

As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.

This is where the whole idea of inspiring people to Live Worthy has come from because this is exactly who I want to be. No matter what we do with our lives, I hope we can get to the end of it knowing that we lived a life worthy of the calling we have received.


Dawn Owens is the Founder/Executive Director of The Link of Cullman County. Her husband Chris, a native of Cullman, AL and their son, Sawyer moved to Cullman in 2010 after feeling led to start a new local church. It didn’t take long before God re-arranged their plans and gave Dawn a vision of an organization that would sit like a hub in a wheel to meet the needs of the poor in Cullman. After abandoning all of her plans God has been taking her on the adventure of her lifetime as she stewards His vision for the Cullman area through The Link of Cullman County.

The Link of Cullman County, was founded in March 2012, and is a faith -based non-profit working to break the cycle of poverty through encouragement, education,  and employability training.

Dawn is an author, speaker, radio show host and the Founder/Executive Director of The Link of Cullman County. When she’s not pursuing one of these roles she is totally content as serving our family which includes her husband Chris and wanna-be scientist son, Sawyer.

Though Dawn is originally from Havertown, PA she feels much at home in Cullman, AL. “A yankee with a southern heart” is how her husband describes her.

Dawn received a B.A. in Professional Writing, with minors in Speech Communications and Public Relations and a M. Ed. in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Kutztown University in Kutztown, PA. She also has an almost completed M.A.R in Pastoral Leadership from Cincinnati Christian University in Cincinnati, OH.
