Reimagined versions of “If You Want Me To” and “Wonderful Wonder” will delight longtime fans and remind listeners of the remarkable career Owens has forged. After signing a record deal with Rocketown Records in the late ’90s, the singer/songwriter garnered critical and commercial acclaim with her debut album, Without Condition, as she set radio airwaves ablaze with her R&B-inflected brand of thoughtful pop. The Gospel Music Association named Owens New Artist of the Year in 2000, and the songstress went on to earn two additional Dove Awards. A string of radio hits and accolades followed, in addition to Owens’ music appearing in films and television shows. She also co-authored with Andrew Greer Transcending Mysteries: Who Is God and What Does He Want From Us (Harper Collins 2015), blogs at , is the creator of the How I See It video series where she invites people into her daily life as a blind person, and has served as an adjunct professor in the songwriting department at Belmont University.
Wanting the quality of your life to be better and taking positive action to make this happen is no contradiction to being grateful for the precious gift of life. This way you have an inner feeling of joy for being alive and this positive energy will give you more inner strength to create the kind of life that would be better for you. The first thing we say when we wake up in the morning is the one line statement that we are grateful for being alive. In Hebrew it is Modeh ani… That's amazing, isn't it? The first words we utter each day say that we are grateful. This sets the tone for the entire day. "Today I will be grateful from the first moment when I wake up."
