Suicide is Riddled

The suicide rate is on the rise and we must push back against this lie that seeks to take precious life. After being asked by a radio talk show host to submit a spoken word piece, though I had several mentions in some of my works, I wrote this tonight. As I reflect on...

The Melody of My Life

Books By William Owens

Naked Before God - Poetry

During these sacred moments, William unashamedly bares his heart before God and exposes himself to the unfathomable grace, love and understanding that God is so willing to show him. Suddenly – words that express his heart begin to flow!

Warriors Arise!

The purpose of this book is to point you to the power of God’s Word within you. If you do not have God’s governing authority working through you to bring about His will in the earth, any hope that you possess will be quickly swept away by this forthcoming conflict.

Astonished!

Astonished! Is about allowing God to “experience you” through your personal journey of faith. Whether through a bike trek across America, a devastating sickness, the building of a company, a suffering relationship with children, or even divorce. 

Poems for America

William wrote a poem on 9/14/16 entitled “America In Trouble”. He then followed with “Prayer as an American”. The poems continued to flow. He therefore committed to write a poem everyday until the elections for a total of 53 poems.

As I rode my book 1,014 miles from NV to TX I came face to face with people from all walks of life in different shapes and sizes that desired one thing: courage to do their passion and the step to discover what that is. Filled with pictures, video and my story, you’ll be challenged to Astonish God with your life everyday.
