Dawn Eden, internationally known speaker and author of the bestselling The Thrill of the Chaste, shows how the lives of the saints have given her hope and aided her journey of spiritual healing after childhood sexual abuse. One in four American women and one in six American men report having been sexually abused during childhood and My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints provides a much-needed resource for spiritual healing from the isolating effects of these wounds.
Eden uses her own story as a backdrop to introduce numerous holy people--like Laura Vicuna, Thomas Aquinas and Bernard of Clairvaux--who suffered sexual abuse or sexual inappropriateness, as well as saints such as Ignatius of Loyola who suffered other forms of mistreatment and abandonment. Readers seeking wholeness will discover saints with wounds like their own, whose stories bear witness to the transforming power of grace. Eden explores different dimensions of divine love--sheltering, compassionate, purifying, etc.--to help those sexually wounded in childhood understand their identity in the abiding love of Christ.

"Eden describes the lives of canonized saints and saints in waiting ... revealing how and why each one offers hope for abuse victims today. By doing so, she breaks through the artificial barriers often placed between us and those mighty representatives of God."-- William Doino, Jr., Inside the Vatican
