TONIGHT: Watch me on EWTN’s “Journey Home”


Tonight’s the night that my interview for “The Journey Home” airs on EWTN, in which I share my conversion story with host Marcus Grodi and also discuss the message of my book of Catholic spirituality for adult victims of childhood sexual abuse, My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints. Go to to check the network’s schedule to see what time it will air in your area, or to watch it online. The site also includes a Channel Finder to help you find EWTN on your cable system. Here on the East Coast, the show airs at 8 p.m. tonight, to be repeated at 1 a.m. Tuesday and 1 p.m. Friday.

If you have any friends or family members who have suffered trauma, particularly if they have suffered childhood sexual abuse, they may find inspiration and hope for healing through seeing me tell my story on “The Journey Home.” You could also recommend the interview to anyone who is in recovery, and to those who struggle with same-sex attraction (a struggle that, although not part of my story, is similar to those I faced in overcoming disordered desires). All who have suffered any kind of wound need to know the Good News of Christian suffering, and that is what I share in this interview. In addition, if you know any Jews, atheists, agnostics, Protestants, or fallen-away Catholics, my interview might also be of interest to them, as I discuss my conversion. And Chesterton fans should enjoy it, as GKC’s influence is a key part of my story.

I am tremendously excited about the “Journey Home” interview’s airing, because it enables the My Peace message to reach many people who would not otherwise hear it. There is therefore great opportunity for the healing light of Christ to reach people who have been living for years with misplaced guilt and shame. Please pray for the program’s viewers, that God will use it to touch them so that they might find healing or that they might lead others to healing.

    Enjoyed your interview on journey home tonight. Thank you for sharing your story of a suffering and now joyful heart. I will pray for you and for all who have suffered evil acts of others, for healing and peace by the Holy Spirit. Welcome home Dawn, and those who will come home also by the Holy Spirit.

    Your finest hour. I’ve been a fan since your earliest days at Goldmine, writing about my musical heroes like Curt Boettcher and Gary Usher. Fast forward to 2005. My wife and I are taking RCIA, I discover your blog, read about your Catholic journey, we came into the Church the same Easter weekend you did in 2006. Thanks for years of sharing, teaching, and growing. Our prayers will continue for your vocation. May God continue to richly bless you with His understanding and wisdom.

      Brad, I did not realize we went back that far, so to speak. That is amazing that we came into the Church that same weekend. Welcome home! Thanks so much for your prayers. Praying for you and your wife, with thanksgiving.
