Dawn "D-LYTE" Runyon



"You really gave our ladies a lot to think about it and it opened their eyes to their conduct on social media. Thank you for sharing so vulnerably and real - your passion is so authentic!

                                               - L. Williams, 2015 YWL Chaperone - Lincoln Co.

"Thank you, thank you, thank you - you truly helped me to understand how important my role is as a SW and you gave me a new hope and vision to serving the people in my community and organization. I never thought of what I did as contributing to building such a lasting legacy - great insight. You were truly enjoyable and hilarious!"

"Dawn after your Self-Esteem presentation @ AMBC your ears should have been BURNING! They loved it! You were truly an inspiration to the A-Team. You love what you do and it shows through your words. God Bless you!"

"Dawn, Thank you so much for a powerful, eye-opening presentation! I'm sure the students, as well as the parents who were in attendance took "something" away. I know I did." Again, you were a blessing to us all. Thanks so much!

"Dawn Runyon was the perfect key note speaker for our church's "Women's Night." Her passionate address touched hearts in a way that impacted everyone that attended! I would definitely recommend her to anyone that needs a speaker for an event where you want more than a canned presentation about success. There's nothing "canned" about Dawn, she speaks from the heart!"

Dawn, it was so great being able to talk to you at our First Christian Church woman's retreat this past fall. You really opened my eyes and I really believe it has gotten me closer to God. Keep up your awesome work and sharing God's word!

Dawn, Thank you for speaking at Employment Solutions Annual Partnership Luncheon. Your message for us to be "cathedral builders" was inspirational. It was a great reminder that in the arena of social work, we have the opportunity to do more than our "job", by building something great in the lives of those we serve.

Dawn, every since that first day I met you in high school I thought there was something special about you (besides your looks and great smile). I have always wondered what happen to you and after reading about you on here I can say you are a very specials person in this world. Sounds like you are a lucky one that has found their calling in life. Can't wait to see more of you on here and a book.
