Among Women Podcast #140 features Dawn Eden and her book offering hope and healing for sexual wounds

Among Women 140* turns our attention to the tender subject of recovery and healing from the wounds of sexual abuse, especially those sustained in childhood. My guest this week is Dawn Eden, author of My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints. In this conversation, Dawn shares some of the spiritual richness she found after coming into the Catholic Church as a convert, and how the prayers, sacraments, and saints of the church offer solace and renewal for those who have suffered from sexual wounds. She also describes the stained glassed triptych to the left, in some depth.

This program also features some excerpts from St. Faustina's Diary of Divine Mercy, and in particular, contains a lovely prayer of thanksgiving for the gift of grace found in the sacramental life. You'll also find numerous links and resources on the podcast page, including a free drawing to enter for Dawn Eden's new book.

*Programming note: due to the sensitive nature of this topic, parental discretion is advised. While no abuse is graphically described in this conversation, we wish to protect the innocence of children who may be in earshot of the program.
