From sex abuse victim to teenage rock music journalist, now a best-selling Catholic author

2016-10-02

Dr. Dawn Eden Goldstein was born into a reformed Jewish household. Her career started when she became a music journalist, interviewing top rock bands and writing for music magazines like Billboard by the time she was 17 years old, a profession that many would envy. 

Despite the perks and many doors that opened for her, Dawn felt that other aspects of her life were missing or closed-off. Little did she know that her views on life would soon change.

DAWN EDEN
Catholic Author
"When I was 27, I was doing a telephone interview with a rock musician. I asked him what he was reading lately and he said, he was reading an author I had never heard of, G. K. Chesterton." 
"I had never heard of Chesterton so out of curiosity, I picked up this novel, having no idea that Chesterton was this great Anglican convert to Christianity.

Today, she writes books under her pen name, Dawn Eden. Her fourth book, "Remembering God's Mercy: Redeem the Past and Free Yourself from Painful Memories,” focuses on her experiences and how she has been able to cope with them through her faith. 

DAWN EDEN
Catholic Author
"Once I began writing and speaking on chastity, I began to see that many people were trying to live the Church's teachings on sexuality, but they were having difficulty because of wounds in their past. I could identify with people who had those wounds, because I myself suffered sexual abuse as a child.

As a victim of abuse, those experiences triggered something within her that eventually manifested into a positive and spiritual source of strength.

DAWN EDEN
Catholic Author
"In "Remembering God's Mercy,” I write especially about Pope Francis' Ignatian spirituality because as a new Catholic, I found St. Ignatius' spirituality to be deeply healing.

For Dawn, this form of spirituality has helped her find meaning and purpose in her life. In May of 2016, Dawn became the first woman in the history of University of St. Mary of the Lake's to receive a Doctor of Sacred Theology degree.
