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. In 2010  she moved to Cullman, AL with her son and his Dad 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 life 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 helping people grow out 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 hanging out with her wanna-be scientist son, Sawyer or writing at her local coffee shop.

Though Dawn is originally from Havertown, PA she feels much at home in Cullman, AL.

Dawn received a B.A. in Professional Writing, with minors in Speech Communications and Public Relations and an 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.
