What's Your Gift to Give

April 2016

Ms. Tipton grew up in Hamilton, Ohio, surrounded by believers. She learned very early in life about the power of prayer and fills her books with Bible Verses and Prayers.

As a writer, she hopes her books encourage others to write and pray daily, using a journal.

She has published three books:
First—The Prayor:  One Who Prays (2013)
Second—Feeling Wheels (2014)
Third—The Prayor Worships with Isaiah (2015)

She plans to publish two more this year.

As a long time writer prior to retirement, she spent thirty-seven years as part of her profession, writing documents, newsletters and speaking to large and small groups across the country.

Her career highlights include serving as Senior Vice President of GMAC Mortgage Corporation in Philadelphia, Director at the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation in Washington, DC, Vice President of Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati, and Chief Executive Officer of a small public company.

Ms. Tipton earned a Graduate Certificate in Savings and Loan Finance from Indiana University and her Bachelors and Master's degrees from the University of Cincinnati.

She has spent more than half of her life in the Cincinnati area where she has many accomplishments and honors, which include the founding member of the Women’s Alliance, Inc., Cincinnati Enquirer Women of the Year, and YWCA Career Women of Achievement.  Her national recognition includes Martin Luther King Drum Major for Justice, Outstanding Young Women of America, and Who’s Who in America.

During her professional career, she has spoken before the Congress of the United States of America regarding the housing needs of low-and moderate income communities and in more than 50 communities around the country.

She lectures in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Cincinnati and The Institute for Learning in Retirement at Miami University. This year, her class titles are “Take Hold of Your Life by Journaling” and “Take Hold of Your Life by Journaling II."


Public Speaking

BIO

Gwendolyn Carol Tipton truly understands the power of prayer and has written a yearlong inspirational journal to help lead readers out of the darkest corners of their lives and into a place of peace. Writing was a skill Gwendolyn learned early in life and honed during her climb through corporate America to the rank of CEO. But it wasn't until a series of mistakes led to her conviction and 40 months in a federal women's prison that she truly found her calling.

The Prayor: One Who Prays offers a yearlong glimpse into Gwendolyn's struggle to understand her actions and forgive herself. Gwendolyn has also published Feeling Wheels, a book of poetry.

While Gwendolyn loves writing, her greatest loves are her husband and their son and daughter. She is also thankful for the fifty special family members and friends who supported her throughout her prison sentence. She currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Prayor: One Who Prays offers a yearlong glimpse into Gwendolyn’s struggle to understand her actions and forgive herself. Gwendolyn has also published Feeling Wheels, a book of poetry, and The Prayor Worships with Isaiah, which uses the Book of Isaiah to guide worship.

While Gwendolyn loves writing, her greatest loves are her husband and their son and daughter. She is also thankful for the fifty special family members and friends who supported her throughout her incarceration. She currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Her next book (about journaling) will be published this year.
