Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them

Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them
Higgs, Liz Curtis
$15.99

Ten of the Bible's best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of this popular and unforgettable study with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.

Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture-Sarah, Mary, Esther-but on most days, that's not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they're honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel's take-charge pride or Eve's disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today's modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.

So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved Bible study teacher and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs, and choose a better path. Whether they were "Bad to the Bone," "Bad for a Season, but Not Forever" or only "Bad for a Moment," these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life.
With her trademark humor and encouragement, Higgs combines a contemporary retelling of the stories of these "other women" in Scripture with a solid, verse-by-verse study to teach us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!

Breaking Through: Catholic Women Speak for Themselves

Breaking Through: Catholic Women Speak for Themselves
$16.95
Catholic women are some of the most maligned, most caricatured, and most intriguing people in American society

America is flirting with the idea that being a Catholic female means saying "yes" to the faith as a private source of comfort, but "no" to living out its more countercultural moral and social teachings.

Catholic women are facing unprecedented questions about sex, money, marriage, work, children and the church itself questions with innumerable personal and societal repercussions. Is it even possible that the teachings of a 2,000 year old religion are still relevant for today's toughest issues?

Nine such Catholic women varying widely in age, occupation and experience share personal stories of how they struggled toward the realization that the demands of their faith actually set them free. Their stories full of honesty, but ultimately hope --shed new light and new clarity on women's continued attraction to the Catholic faith.

Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life

Full of Grace: Women and the Abundant Life
Benkovic, Johnnette S
$13.99
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

Girl, Arise!: A Catholic Feminist's Invitation to Live Boldly, Love Your Faith, and Change the World

Girl, Arise!: A Catholic Feminist's Invitation to Live Boldly, Love Your Faith, and Change the World
Swinarski, Claire
$14.95

Winner of a 2020 Catholic Press Association book award (second place, gender issues-inclusion in the Church).


Is it possible to be both a Catholic and a feminist? Claire Swinarski, writer and creator of The Catholic Feminist podcast, believes it is: "I'm a feminist for the same reason I'm bold and honest and sometimes ragey: because Jesus was all of those things."

In Girl, Arise!, Swinarski reconciles the two identities by demonstrating the strength and abilities women have to share with the Body of Christ, the importance of women throughout the history of the faith, and how the love you experience through Christ and the Church can change you and the world around you.

In Girl, Arise!: A Catholic Feminist's Invitation to Live Boldly, Love Your Faith, and Change the World Swinarski points out that while both "feminism" and "Catholicism" can mean different things to different people, both feminists and Catholics desire to make the world a better, fairer place. And she shows that by treating women with dignity equal to that of men--by calling them his friends and teaching them--Jesus acted as a feminist as well.

With humor and sass, Swinarski addresses her frustration with the traditional concerns churches ascribe to women, as shown by the many talks directed at women focused on marriage and modesty rather than social justice. But she pinpoints the areas where modern feminism goes too far, arguing against abortion and exploring what it means to serve others rather than focus on our own needs first.

Swinarski also tells the stories of holy women--including Vashti in the book of Esther, Sts. Thérèse of Lisieux and Joan of Arc, Mary Magdalene, and the Blessed Virgin Mary--to show how their faith influenced their actions, even when those actions went against traditional norms and roles of women.

You will be empowered to embrace your God-given abilities as you follow the women who have gone before you in faith who--by announcing Christ to his disciples, believing in God's promises, and being faithful in hardship--changed the world.

$16.95

2019 Best Book Awards, Winner in Religion: Christianity
2018 Catholic Press Association, 3rd Place in Scripture: Popular Studies

In Jesus Approaches, Elizabeth Kelly shares vivid stories of New Testament women whose encounters with Jesus freed them to flourish in life. The stories are supplemented with moving accounts from her own life, and from the lives of women like you, to demonstrate that sometimes the best way to find healing, strength, and wholeness in Christ is, ironically, to lead with vulnerability and openness.

Ultimately, Jesus Approaches teaches that finding the fullness of life for which you were created begins with bringing your brokenness to the Lord.

Made for More: An Invitation to Live in God's Image

Made for More: An Invitation to Live in God's Image
Anderson, Hannah
$13.99

Who are you, really?

In an uncertain world, we crave the security of knowing exactly who we are and where we belong. But too often as women, we try to find this safety in our roles and relationships, our professional accomplishments, or our picture-perfect homes. And as we do, our souls shrink smaller and smaller. It's because these things aren't made to hold us.

In Made for More, Hannah Anderson invites you to re-imagine yourself, not simply as a set of roles and categories, but as a person destined to live in the fullness of God Himself.

Starting with our first identity as image bearers, Hannah shows how Jesus Christ makes us people who can reflect His nature through our unique callings. She also explores how these deeper truths affect the practical realties that we face as women--how does being an image bearer shape our pursuit of education, our work, and even our desire for holistic lives?

Because you are made in God's image, you will only ever know yourself--only ever be yourself--as you find your identity in Him. Find it now.

Pray Fully: Simple Steps for Becoming a Woman of Prayer

Jaminet, Emily
$15.95

"I feel silly trying to make up prayers myself."
"My mind starts to wander as I am speaking to God."
"I just don't have time to pray."

Do you recognize yourself in any of these statements? Then Pray Fully is for you. Michele Faehnle and Emily Jaminet--bestselling authors of Divine Mercy for Moms and The Friendship Project--share the rewards and frustrations of their own prayer journeys to create a practical guide that combines testimonies, tips, and journaling space to help you spend quality time with God. Whether you want to learn how to pray aloud in a group or to stop your mind from wandering during prayer, Faehnle and Jaminet have practical advice and the real-life experience to help you overcome obstacles to everyday prayer.

Both raised in Catholic families who spent time in prayer, Faehnle and Jaminet wanted to experience a relationship with God that consisted of more than Sunday Mass and an occasional panicked Rosary or a rushed cry for help. They each found that the noisy, self-centered monologue of their youth grew into a fuller, more mature dialogue of love when they gave time to God and began to truly listen to him.

In Pray Fully, Faehnle and Jaminet share basic prayer principles that have helped them to become women of prayer:

  • make time for personal, daily communication with Jesus
  • spend time meditating and engaging in other spiritual practices such as adoration or the Examen
  • recognize the critical times of each day when you need a "prayer boost"
  • live deeply in the sacraments and enrich your life with sacramentals
  • record your intentions and thank God for answered prayer
  • Encouraging stories and practical advice--including tips from the lives and writings of the saints--questions for personal reflection and private meditation, and journaling space will help you develop a lifelong dialogue with God.

    The book is perfect for individual or group study.

    Weaving Faith and Experience: A Woman's Perspective

    Weaving Faith and Experience: A Woman's Perspective
    Hathaway, Patricia Cooney
    $14.99
    In this final volume of the award-winning Called to Holiness series, Patricia Cooney Hathaway concentrates on helping women understand the relationship between faith and human experience during the middle years within the context of the whole life cycle. She explores the wrenching and puzzling questions women in their middle years need to ask: Who am I? Who am I with? Where am I going in terms of a life plan? What aids or blocks my growth? Is God a personal God who is invested in my life? Do I have a personal destiny related to God? What is the meaning of suffering? What is my fate after death?

    With wisdom and a nurturing voice, Patricia Cooney Hathaway provides insights about how our Christian faith can help women grow in a personal relationship with God and how our falling in love with God can find practical expression in the way we choose to live.
