“Do you want to view reality from a fresh perspective? If so, Katherine T Owen’s book It's OK to Believe is a must-read.”
Stephanie J Hale, Literary Agent at Oxford Literary Consultancy
Out of 250 authors going through out of the original 3000 in the Next Top Spiritual Author Competition, Joanne chose five to promote only 5 books. I was honoured that It's OK to Believe was amongst them.
"Unique. That's what I'd go with. Her voice and life story are so compelling, it's hard to come up with comparisons.
Katherine could have gone the memoir route and simply told the
extraordinary healing journey she's made for body, mind, and soul during
a 14-year virtually immobilized illness challenge that most of us could
But, no. Instead, she just tells us it's OK to
believe, in the things we can see, and in the things we cannot see. That
would seem to take up only a simple sentence, but not so.
a blend of narrative poems, release statements, and quotes from the
Bible and A Course in Miracles, Katherine blows right past your mind and
into your soul, which starts saying "Yes!" right away. The resonance
was immediate." .
The only comparison that came to mind from
the first poem was of Khalil Gibran. A gentleness with ancient text-like
authority, perhaps due to the biblical and ACIM influences.

Carol, Reiki instructor
"It's OK to Believe illuminates fundamental truths about the spiritual journey. It is an intensely personal, deeply moving, wise and heart-warming book, and deserves a wide audience.”
Cathy Jeffrey, Lightworker, Five Rhythms Dancer
“It is amazing. It gives another point of view and people want to hear that... “It's OK to think life has no meaning”. I don't know why but that release makes me feel very emotional. I love the way you give permission.”

“I like your words [from the introduction] – “On reading the release, we relax in the understanding that we are accepted as we are” etc, and “Once we release judgement we gain an ability to accept, see and therefore judge the behaviour more clearly.” I like the idea of loosening the knot – it’s so true it becomes apparent what you do next.... This has a lot in it to benefit others. Congratulations. Very thought provoking.”
Kate Sweeney, Universalist, Retired Physiotherapist
“I have a sense of you being on a journey and I am going with you, asking questions and looking for answers. It helps me clarify my own beliefs somehow – a feeling of the penny dropping... I expected it to be difficult, but it is really accessible... I like all three parts to the page – the poem, the release and the quote... I have read it a page at a time and now I am re-reading it.”
Mark Pugh, Secular, HGV Driver
“Well written, perceptive and feeds the spirit... You have a message of love and hope that people are in need of... I love it. I will now re-read it slowly to do it justice as it is the sort of book that stands as a reference point to life and belief... I so admire how out of a big problem in your life your spirit has created something so impressive.”
Teresa Davey, Free-thinking Christian (Catholic), Swindon Poet and Writer

"I have been asking spirit vehemently for days to send me the answer to something I have been trying to figure out. Last night they told me guidance would be coming in human and spirit form.
This morning, I was so tired from frustration I took the kids to school and went back to bed. I never answer the door when I am asleep, nor my landline but keep my mobile next to me as an alarm.
My stepfather rang me and woke me up, asking if I would be practicing later. I said yes and was about to go back to sleep when I had a strong sensation I was being woken up for something else. One minute later someone knocked on the door and your book turned up.
Thank you so much for writing the book. I think there will be many more things in there I haven't yet thought of!
Much love Jenny
PS. The answer to my problems was on page 40."
“I like It's OK to Believe very much. I don't like books much, but it was left at a salon I was working at. I started to look it over several weeks later and I was unable to put it down.”
Candice V posted on your Wall, Los Angeles, USA
“I bought your book then and there, and read it in short order, enjoying it very much, and being very inspired by it. I have not suffered in the same way as you have, but I have also been in great need of healing.”
Hugo J, Copy of It's OK to Believe purchased in Rainbow - Swindon Christian Bookshop, Catholic
“The one page format embracing poem, release and spiritual quotation and preceding explanatory notes enables a quality of focus, encouraging one to turn the corner of a page that ‘speaks’. The excellent text combines depth of content with accessibility; it is relevant to both experienced Christians and those people who are responding to the innate need in all of us to seek.
Paul Sunners, Former Headmaster, Christian
“Dear Katherine, Having read your wonderful book, It's OK to Believe, I have to say that I am surprised how much I enjoyed it. As a non-believer it became apparent that one does not have to share your faith to enjoy the book. Every inspiration you write in it says something new, but knowing your history I am not the least surprised. You yourself are an inspiration. Keep smiling.”
Tom Bryer, Author of Terror on the Tracks:
A Rhodesian Story
“It's OK to Believe has inspired me to trust my own creative way in conjunction with ACIM. I like the way the book delightfully 'lightens the way and brings in the permission for things to be as they are". A great book to have by my bedside. (whoops I sound a bit like an advert don't I - but I am only just saying how it has been for me!!)”
