Cheating= Exit to the Left!!!

Cheating is never an option. If your relationship is falling apart and you no longer want to be with that person have the decency to tell him/her. Money, sex, and dependency are selfish reasons to stay tied to someone. Always put yourself in that person’s shoes and see if you would like being used. In today’s society many people have lost their lives or have been seriously hurt because of cheating. Do the right thing and let that person go.

From the heart,

I See Your True Colors-I Know Who You Really Are!

Ladies, before you are intimate with a man, get to know the person first. When sex is involved, at the beginning stages, it clouds your judgement. Women are emotional creatures which means we get attached easily while a man sees it as emotionless sex. You need to know if he is married, separated, in a relationship, employed, spiritually grounded, has good credit, goals and aspirations, been convicted( circumstances that led to the conviction),etc. A background check is not a bad thing in today’s society. Look out for yourself and don’t fall for every man that tells you that you look good.

I Made It; 50 Years of Life 2-23-2013

Gwen 2 years old (3)Today is a very special day for me. I am 50 years old! I want to thank God for being a healer, restorer of life, a friend in my darkest hours and my strong tower. Because of you, I am. Thank you for giving me the gift of life and allowing me to use my experiences to help others. Thanks to my family, friends, and FB family for the love you have shown me today; I feel very special because of you!


My testimony:

I want to help somebody to see the light today,

I want to lend a helping hand to show someone the way,

I want my life to be an example as I go

Cause I’ll never pass this way again…

How Did You Do It?

RSWY CEO Gwen OwensPeople ask me all the time, “how did you overcome adversity?” I DECIDED that I wanted more out of life and I was through feeling sorry for myself. It was that simple. The process was sometimes difficult but I would not trade the life God has given me. I learned to take one minute at a time and embrace me. I know what it is like to be broken; but, I know what joy and being whole feels like,too. I have peace even when things are off course because I know there is someone much greater than me. He made promises and I can count on Him to keep them. He doesn’t lie and he is merciful and kind. He never said it would be easy but he promised to comfort and keep me. I believe you know Him, too! Just step out on faith and believe.
