My Peace I Give You
Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints
By Dawn Eden
"A sensitive and poignant effort to offer the gift of healing to some of the most wounded people of our time, with the aid of the wisdom of the great saints. A book that is both moving and useful."
—Rev. James Martin, S.J., author of My Life with the Saints and Between Heaven and Mirth
Internationally known speaker and author Dawn Eden shows how the lives of the saints have given her hope and aided her journey of spiritual healing after childhood sexual abuse.
If you are among those victims of childhood sexual abuse, I want you to know you are not alone, you are not forgotten, and you have more friends in heaven than you realize.
What Rev. James Martin, Jennifer Fulweiler, Alice von Hildebrand and others are saying about Dawn Eden’s new book on healing sexual abuse.
One in four women, and one in six men, report having been abused in childhood. Here's my story of how I began to heal my own wounds through the lives of the saints.

Eden takes the deeply painful, deeply personal stuff that comes up when you dredge old demons out of the murky waters, and then treats her wounds with the antiseptic of faith and the balm of the saints, in order to bring about healing and something more: real hope for the rest of one’s life.
Whatever wounds you have, whether they be sexual, emotional, social, or physical, this book provides much-needed hope and relief.
The saints are boon companions, safe confidantes, and shining examples that good can come from evil, that the light of faith, eventually, overcomes any and all darkness.
The way Eden engages with the Church and with the saints provides a model for how we can respond to our own needs and sorrows.
In each chapter, Eden highlights a particular saint and shows how their lives can be a guide to conversion and healing. Hands down, this is the best book I've read on the lives of the saints.
Regardless of one’s view of the concept of “saints,” Eden offers hope to any person who lost innocence too soon, or simply has been captivated by the materialistic culture in which we live.
The community of faith is always given a gift when someone tells the truth about a deep wound and seeks to bring theological and spiritual reflection to that event.
There’s a world of sexual wounds out there, and there’s an immense amount of grace and love in the heart of God for healing those wounds (often wounds inflicted by believers).
