Publishers Description We must be women who are spiritual mothers, women who are full of grace, women of the abundant life. --from Chapter Eight What happens when women give their lives over to God? They become vessels of grace, bearers of healing, consolation, encouragement and strength to a troubled world. Far from being passive, the woman of grace will actively embrace God's will, actively seek out the suffering and lost, and actively bring God's healing love to others. If she accepts God's call to authentic womanhood, her role, in the words of a closing speech at Vatican Council II, becomes nothing less than to "aid humanity in not falling." "Full of Grace" will empower all women to fully embrace their God-given identity. This edition of "Full of Grace" is now correlated to The Women of Grace(R) Foundational Study Series. A Servant Book. "A beautiful woman-to-woman book on the way to holiness for Catholic women. A book for all ages."--Ronda De Sola Chervin, Ph.D., author and speaker "Johnnette Benkovic masterfully combines the teachings of Scripture and the Church with a down-to-earth program for the way to holiness, upholding the mission of Christian women in the world today."--Father George T. Montague, S.M., author of "The Woman and the Way" "Well-written, well-researched and filled with spiritual insight, this spiritual manual is a true aid to those who seek holiness."--Monica Migliorino Miller, Ph.D., author, "The Authority of Women in the Catholic Church" "A glowing account flowing out of a maternal heart that illuminates the glorious mission God has confided to women in the world and in the Church."--Alice von Hildebrand, Ph.D., author and speaker

grace May 29, 2008
Excellent book I recommend for all women. They will definitely know their worth in GOd's eyes and give them direction in their life - for them and their families, friends, etc. Johnnette Benkovic is a gifted writer and evangelist. No woman will be the same after reading her book. Everyone I gave it to agree with this and it changed their lives.
For all Catholic Women Jan 11, 2008
As a Catholic women in her 20s, I often feel that literature is written to women older than me who have children at home or even grown children. I find it hard to relate to these kind of books, and I usually try to stay away from them. This was not the case at all with this book. I found myself relating to it on so many different levels, and now, several weeks after finishing the book, I still hear Benkovic's words in my head as I go through my daily routine, attend Mass, and seek to live a Christ-centered life. I believe Catholic women, of all ages and levels of spiritual maturity, will be able to relate to and benefit from reading this book.

We have a Women of Grace group whose concept is based on Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life. We use this book as part of our study group. Everyone, without exception, loves this book. You cannot get enough of it. Most of us have read it more than once. It fully addresses a woman's spirituality like never before. Our group is uplifted, confident and energized by this book. We would urge all women to get a copy and read it over and over.
What a blessing! Jan 27, 2007
Johnnette Benkovic is a brilliant writer, and she writes with the compassion and depth of a Godly woman. This book is a gift for every woman who wants to realize her calling from God as "Woman." It's quite a calling! :)
