Podcast Ep. 105: Dr. Dawn Eden, Catholic Convert and Author

Our latest podcast guest is Dr. Dawn Eden, a Catholic convert and author most recently of Remembering God’s Mercy: Redeem the Past and Free Yourself from Painful Memories.


Dr. Eden was born into a Jewish family, became an Agnostic during her teenage years, and then found God and became a Catholic in her 30s. Along the way, she was a rock journalist and worked as an editor for the New York Post and Daily News. Since her conversion, she’s written several books including The Thrill of the Chaste. She’s also a long-time blogger at the Dawn Patrol.
