Ginny Owens has been able to see the more profound truths of life, partly because she has been blind since the age of 3. Her music has won her many awards, but her story has touched countless hearts. Her desire for her audience to see God's goodness in the midst of trials has transcended her music, as she also writes and speaks.
She became a household name as the Gospel Music Association’s 2000 New Artist of the Year. Growing in notoriety as both a singer and a songwriter, winning 3 Dove awards and multiple ASCAP Awards along the way, Owens has sold over a million records over the course of her career. A top performer on the Christian radio charts with hits like “If You Want Me To,” “Free," and “I Wanna Be Moved” among others, Owens has released no less than 11 full albums and 3 EPs, and her music has also impacted mainstream audiences at Lilith Fair, the Sundance Film Festival, and the White House.
Her heart for the Lord is as evident in her talks as it is in her music. She speaks on some of the issues we tend to wrestle with most as believers. Many of us have called ourselves Christians for a long time, but we’re overwhelmed with worry, anxiety, and doubt. How can we learn to be content in any situation we face? Is it possible to endure a difficult job, family situation, disability, or terminal illness with hope? Ginny deals with these and other difficult topics in her talks.
Ginny continues to travel and present for concerts, women's ministry and non-profit events. She loves encouraging and challenging audience to see God in a new way.
Live a Story of Hope - We don’t always get to choose our circumstances, but we do get to choose the stories our lives tell. I believe each of us is meant to live a story of hope, no matter what challenges we face. Blind since age three, I have firsthand experience learning to find hope in every situation. Drawing from my own life story—the funny parts and the challenging moments—and looking to Scripture for stories of others who have learned to have joy in the midst of challenges, I’d like to lead us in a time of encouragement, knowing we’ll walk away inspired to “always have hope.” (Ps. 71:14)
The Secret of Contentment - Have you ever wondered why, in the age of “self-care” and “work-life balance,” we are still restless, anxious, and searching for contentment? How can we learn to be content in any situation we face? Having experienced several harrowing life struggles myself, including walking with my mom through cancer, I have found answers in a letter the Apostle Paul wrote from a prison cell. Come discover Paul’s secret of contentment through my teaching and music. Based on Phil. 4:12.
Love be the Loudest: Hearing God’s Voice Above the Noise - Our lives are full of noise – from our everyday busyness, to social media, to the voices whispering doubts and lies in our own heads. As the noise of career demands, singleness, and self-doubt grew to a fever pitch for me, I went on a mission to discover what needed to change. Psalm 25:14 says God wants to tell us His secrets, , but how do we tune our hearts to His voice? Let’s explore together some of the most important ways we can hear God’s voice above the noise of our crazy lives – and be changed by it!
What Our Songs Say - I don’t know about you, but I love music. Come join me in an exploration of current popular songs, what they tell us about our current culture, and how they can point us toward good news.
Let It Echo: Finding Your Voice as a Songwriter - For most of us, music is a source of comfort, encouragement, and inspiration. Many of us either love writing it, or wish we could express ourselves more confidently and clearly through it. Since I’ve been songwriting for quite a few years now, one of my very favorite things to do is to teach it. Let’s celebrate songwriting by learning something about the craft, and looking at songs—yours, mine, and others—to learn how to express our hearts through the medium of songwriting.
