Dawnna has always had the joy of the Lord in her heart. Growing up in a strict church she learned to fear the Lord and keep him at a distance. During her teen years she learned that the Lord desires to be close to her but only if she was quiet, neat and calm. Throughout her young adult years she began a tug-of-war with God because of the lessons of her youth. She wanted to be closer to God but she didn’t fit into that mold. After hitting rock bottom in her personal life she finally cried out to the Lord. He revealed her identity by simply saying that she was wild and beautiful and loved wildly by a beautiful God. That He approved of her and loved her more than she could ever know. She reconnected with God the Father and Jesus the Son, found a church and finally met Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit cemented her faith and she was finally able to surrender to the Lord. Dawnna’s heart cry is to live intimately with the Lord, help others find their identity in Him and share the Gospel with the world. She dreams of a world with free people freeing people through God’s love and truth. She sings on the worship team at Awaken Youngstown and attends church at Victory Christian Center.
