A poignant and powerful spiritual memoir about how the lives of the saints changed the life of a modern woman.
In My Sisters the Saints, author Colleen Carroll Campbell blends her personal narrative of spiritual seeking, trials, stumbles, and breakthroughs with the stories of six women saints who profoundly changed her life: Teresa of Avila, Therese of Lisieux, Faustina of Poland, Edith Stein of Germany, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and Mary of Nazareth. Drawing upon the rich writings and examples of these extraordinary women, the author reveals Christianity's liberating power for women and the relevance of the saints to the lives of contemporary Christians.
Dawn Eden is a blogger and popular author of The Thrill of the Chaste: Finding Fulfillment While Keeping Your Clothes On and My Peace I Give You: Healing Sexual Wounds with the Help of the Saints. Born into a Jewish family in New York City, Eden lost her faith as a teenager and became an agnostic. During the 1990s, she worked as a rock journalist in New York City, interviewing oldies and classic rock performers. She went on to work for the New York Post and the Daily News. At age thirty-one, Eden underwent a dramatic conversion to Christianity that ultimately led her to join the Catholic Church. Both of her books, The Thrill of the Chaste (originally published in 2006) and My Peace I Give You (2012), have been featured in the New York Times and on numerous EWTN programs. Her new version of The Thrill of the Chaste is a completely revised and updated Catholic edition of the popular book. Eden received her pontifical licentiate in sacred theology from the Dominican House of Studies in 2014 and is studying for a doctorate. She has spoken about chastity, spiritual healing, and conversion to thousands of people throughout North America and abroad. She lives in the Chicago area.
