Join us for a enlightening interview with Dawn Owens, author of Like Me or Not; Overcoming Approval Addition.  Interviewing with Dawn felt like you were chatting with a girlfriend at a coffee shop.

The book made its beginnings over 7 years ago as Dawn was realizing how approval addition was impacting her life. In addition, as part of her day job she was seeing people that did not understand their identity.

The main idea in Like Me or Not that Dawn wants people to know is that God already approves of you when you accept Christ.

Dawn is vulnerable and authentic in the book.  She reveals that she shared more in the book than she planned. As a result those are sometimes the chapters that people relate to the most.

Dawn laughs about the parallel of writing and marketing a book and the approval addition.

The book is a tangible and practical way to work through approval addiction. Like Me or Not will help you realize when you are in the approval addiction cycle and how to break it.

Like Me Or Not: Overcoming Approval Addiction

Like me or notThere is a difference between being someone other people like and being defined by what others think. Some people are so addicted to approval that their lives spiral out of control creating discontent, depression, and alienation. Recovering approval addict Dawn Owens identifies all the ways craving approval can negatively impact our lives, and offers sound, biblical strategies to overcome them. Using her own and other’s stories as relatable examples, Owens shares the journey to an identity found only in Christ.
