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.
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 M Owens is the award-winning author of Like Me or Not: Overcoming Approval Addiction, receiving a 2019 Selah Award and the Writer of the Year at Write to Publish.
But those awards are not what define her. Dawn has learned through seasons of struggle that God lead her to write a book about overcoming approval addiction to prepare her for a period of stripping away. Over the last three years Dawn has been stripped away of titles: Executive Director to a ministry she created and led for seven years, Radio Show host to an audience of 24,000, and wife to a man she had been married to for fourteen and a half years.
Through those struggles, Like Me or Not’s content became the instruction guide for her life. Now she can truly say it no longer matters what she does; she knows who she is.
Dawn speaks to women’s groups about identity helping them understand more of who they are and whose they are. She also serves in a dual-role as the Communications Manager to Senator Garlan Gudger (AL- District 4) and his business, Southern Accents, which has been featured on American Pickers.
Dawn lives in Cullman, AL with her ten-year old son, Sawyer. You’ll see her most frequently grabbing coffee with a friend to talk Jesus and life – knowing that honoring God and giving Him the glory is the only goal worth living for.
