The Faith Fringes Podcast hosted by Dawn Gabriel is for anyone who has ever - or who is currently - questioning their connection with God. Do you find yourself wondering if what you believe is true, asking how a loving God can let bad things happen to good people, or questioning how you're 'supposed’ to experience God in everyday life?

As someone born into a Christian home amidst the Christian culture of the Midwest or "Bible Belt," Dawn has experienced many emotions, unanswered questions, and life-changing moments that altered her perceptions of faith forever. She's here to let you know that everyone's journey in finding a deeper connection with God is different, but that doesn't mean that journeys shouldn't be shared.

As a Group Practice Owner, Consultant, wife, boy mom, and Podcaster, Dawn believes that you can - and will - experience God in so many unexpected ways. It's okay to question and challenge everything you've been taught. If you're a Spiritual Explorer, interested in becoming one, or looking for an inclusive and safe space where doubt, questions, and curiosity are encouraged, Faith Fringes Podcast is for you.

Big6Mama ,

Just wow!

Listening to Dawn tell her story and why for the podcast had me almost crying. Her descriptions of authentic community and all the good and hard of that...so much truth and faith in an amazing refreshing way!

Can’t wait to hear more trail transformation stories!

And what a needed breath of fresh air. Discussing things of real value with an open mind and heart to learn and grow. We are all different and need each other to become who we are meant to be.

Real. Authentic. Brave.

I love it!

The authentic podcast you’ve been looking for

Faith Fringes hits the mark between commitment to faith and exploration of spirituality. Dawn’s willingness to be honest and vulnerable is a game changer for so many who feel like they want to know God but are unsure how to do so outside of traditional church practices. A must-listen for those who have gone through, or are currently going through, their own faith fringe journey.

Engaging • Honest • Authentic

I have enjoyed all the episodes so far and look forward to more! Dawn has such an approachable, non-judgmental way in discussing spiritual exploration. And this quote from Episode 2 (Hiking) actually reminds me of THIS podcast - “A literal and figurative way to change the pace and perspective of your life.”
