Overview


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® Foundational Study Series. A Servant Book.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Godly womanhood and femininity are the focal points in this book by Benkovic, founder and director of a Catholic communications ministry called Living His Life Abundantly. Using Mary, the mother of Jesus, as her prime example, Benkovic shows how Mary's faithful example of obedience provides a model for the spiritual lives of women today. In eight chapters, Benkovic discusses ways that women may incorporate spiritual practices like prayer, praise, the Eucharist and discernment into their everyday lives. The author exhorts women to be introspective and contemplative as they examine their attitudes and actions and to measure them against the standards of Godly womanhoodobedience, loyalty, wisdom, faithfulness, compassionfound in scripture. As they nurture their spirituality, Benkovic's readers can find parallels in their own spiritual lives to the lives of biblical women of faith. Benkovic's anecdotal style brings her staid admonitions to life. Feb.

    Wonderful view of biblical womanhood from a Roman catholic perspective

    This book does a wonderful job of empowering Catholic - all Christian women - to take an active role in their religion, Church, and spirituality. Fairly well referenced and soundly Biblical. The section on prayer was especially meaningful to me.
