    At His Feet: Drawing Closer to Christ with the Women of the New Testament

    At His Feet: Drawing Closer to Christ with the Women of the New Testament
    Little, Derya
    $14.95

    Every one of us has some distance to go when it comes to our relationship with Christ. As twenty-first-century women, it often seems that the challenges of our modern lives make it even more difficult to live an authentic friendship with him. Thankfully, we have the lasting examples of women in the New Testament to show us how to draw close to Jesus, no matter what our circumstances might be.

    At His Feet is written for the woman who desires to rest in the peace of the Lord. This Bible study, specifically designed for women, helps us surrender to God's will and, in doing so, find the true freedom that only our Savior can offer. Like us, the New Testament women featured in this study knew what it meant to struggle with the burdens of life and with their own sinfulness. But when they encountered Jesus, their lives were changed forever.

    Like the women of the New Testament, we can bring Jesus our burdens and receive his healing, his love, and his grace. We, too, can experience the life-changing power of drawing close to him and resting in his love.

    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
    $17.00

    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!

    Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul

    Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman's Soul
    Eldredge, John
    $17.99
    Every woman was once a little girl. And every little girl holds in her heart her most precious dreams. She longs to be swept up into a romance, to play an irreplaceable role in a great adventure, to be the beauty of the story. Those desires are far more than child's play. They are the secret to the feminine heart.
    And yet―how many women do you know who ever find that life? As the years pass by, the heart of a woman gets pushed aside, wounded, buried. She finds no romance except in novels, no adventure except on television, and she doubts very much that she will ever be the Beauty in any tale.
    Most women think they have to settle for a life of efficiency and duty, chores, and errands, striving to be the women they "ought" to be but often feeling they have failed. Sadly, too many messages for Christen women add to the pressure. "Do these ten things, and you will be a godly woman." The effect has not been good on the feminine soul.
    But her heart is still there. Sometimes when she watches a movie, sometimes in the wee hours of the night, her heart begins to speak again. A thirst rises within her to find the life she was meant to live―the life she dreamed of as a little girl.
    The message of Captivating is this: Your heart matters more than anything else in all creation. The desires you had as a little girl and the longings you still feel as a woman are telling you of the life God created you to live. He offers to come now as the Hero of your story, to rescue your heart and release you to live as a fully alive and feminine woman. A woman who is truly captivating.

    Extreme Makeover: Women Transformed By Christ, Not Conformed to the Culture
    Tomeo, Teresa
    $17.95
    Popular radio host Teresa Tomeo knows from experience that the self-image of American women is being distorted by pop culture. With its emphasis on youth, physical beauty, and sexuality, the secular media is encouraging women - and girls - to see themselves primarily as sex objects.A former television news reporter, Tomeo pulls together the latest research on social behavior and trends to demonstrate that women are harming themselves and their chances for true happiness by adopting the thoroughly modern, sexually liberated lifestyle portrayed in magazines and movies. Packed with not only persuasive statistics but also powerful personal testimonies, Extreme Makeover shows that it is not the slogans of the sexual revolution and the women's liberation movement that free and dignify women, but the beautiful teachings of the Catholic Church.So what are women steeped in the Hollywood and Cosmo girl version of reality to do? Undergo Tomeo's Extreme Makeover. With the help of this book, they can shed the toxic messages that objectify and enslave them and embrace the truth about being a beloved daughter of God.

    Feldhahn, Shaunti
    $15.99

    Discover the Truth He Wants You to Know...

    The man in your life carries important feelings so deep inside he barely knows they're there, much less how to talk about them. Yet your man genuinely wants you to "get" him--to understand his inner life, to know his fears and needs, to hear what he wishes he could tell you.

    In her landmark bestseller, For Women Only, Shaunti Feldhahn reveals what every woman--single or married--needs to know. Based on rigorous research with thousands of men, Shaunti delivers one eye-opening revelation after another, including:

    - Why your respect means more to him than your love.
    - How he feels deep inside about his role as provider.
    - What it means for a man to be so visually "wired."
    - Why sex for him is primarily emotional, not physical.
    - What he most wishes he could say to you.

    Now, in this expanded and updated edition, you'll find insights from the latest brain research plus an all-new chapter that shows what's really going on when he seems to "check out." (You'll be surprised and pleased.)

    Millions worldwide have experienced dramatic change in their relationships because of the "aha" moments and practical ideas in this little book. Discover how to love your man for who he really is.

    Gaze Upon Jesus: Experiencing Christ's Childhood Through the Eyes of Women

    Gaze Upon Jesus: Experiencing Christ's Childhood Through the Eyes of Women
    $16.95

    What if you had walked beside the Virgin Mary from the Annunciation to the point at which she and Joseph found Jesus in the temple? How might seeing Christ as a child impact you and your faith?

    WINE: Women In the New Evangelization offers its second, six-week scripture study, this time following the infancy and early years of Christ as seen through the eyes of Mary and other familiar and imagined women in the gospels.

    Founder Kelly Wahlquist and ten other members of WINE uniquely blend scripture reflections, imaginative encounters, and visio divina "sacred seeing" with practical spirituality and discussion questions that will help you take a prayerful and creative journey through Advent and the Christmas season.

    Not much is known about the childhood of Jesus, but the Gospels highlight six key moments in his early life:

  • the angel Gabriel proclaiming Jesus' birth to Mary at the Annunciation
  • a pregnant Mary visiting her cousin Elizabeth
  • the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem
  • the presentation of Jesus in the temple
  • the flight of Mary, Joseph, and Jesus to Egypt
  • discovering the twelve-year-old Jesus in the temple
  • Week by week, you will dig deep into each of the scriptural vignettes of Jesus' early life and grow in your faith as you learn about virtues such as humility, patience, charity, reverence, prudence, and courage.

    Each chapter uses an image that allows you to practice visio divina, the ancient practice of praying with sacred art. The images are included in an eight-page, full-color insert.

    Gaze Upon Jesus will appeal to women who want to deepen their relationship with Jesus during Advent. Contributors to this inspiring scripture study include: Alyssa Bormes, Sarah Christmyer, Mary Healy, Maria Morera Johnson, Stephanie Landsem, Elizabeth Lev, Joan Lewis, Deborah Savage, Kelly Wahlquist, Katie Warner, and Carol Younger. Popular Catholic media personality Teresa Tomeo, also a member of WINE, wrote the foreword for the book.

    As an individual or group study, Gaze Upon Jesus is a memorable way to encounter the God who sent his Son to show us his loving Father's heart.

    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.

    In Go Bravely, Wilson Hussem offers readers warm and friendly encouragement as she shares her experiences with other young women as their youth minister as well as her own struggles with insecurity, relationships, loving and forgiving herself, and living her faith. You'll feel right at home as she challenges you to be a light in the world while simultaneously offering you easy-to-digest advice on your most pressing questions.

    Fresh off figuring out who she is as a daughter of God, how to cultivate healthy friendships, how to save sex for marriage, and how to develop a prayer life, Wilson Hussem gives you advice about what she learned in the midst of becoming a young woman. Aware of the information overload that young people face today, she shares simple wisdom for bravely living your faith, such as:

  • Always be kind to other women.
  • Work hard at what you love.
  • Recognize God's plan for your life.
  • Remember that nobody is perfect.
  • Cultivate authentic friendships.
  • These are basic ideas, Wilson Hussem says, but taking care of yourself and loving others are easy tenets of our faith to forget. A book that can be read in short snippets or in one sitting, Go Bravely offers you the encouragement and tools you need to live out your Christian faith with purpose and zeal.

    Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life

    Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World: Finding Intimacy with God in the Busyness of Life
    Weaver, Joanna
    $16.00
    CBA BESTSELLER - More than a million copies sold! An invitation for every woman who's ever felt she isn't godly enough, isn't loving enough, isn't doing enough.

    "Easy to read, personal, and well-written with a message much more than surface deep. Joanna probed, challenged, and encouraged me to live day by day as Mary in a Martha world."--Carole Mayhall, author of Come Walk with Me and Here I Am Again, Lord

    The life of a woman today isn't all that different from the lives of Mary and Martha in the New Testament. Like Mary, you long to sit at the Lord's feet . . . but the daily demands of a busy world just won't leave you alone. Like Martha, you love Jesus and really want to serve him . . . yet you struggle with weariness, resentment, and feelings of inadequacy.

    Then comes Jesus, into the midst of your busy life, to extend the same invitation he issued long ago to the two sisters from Bethany. Tenderly, he invites you to choose "the better part"--a joyful life of intimacy with him that flows naturally into loving service.

    With her fresh approach to the familiar Bible story, Joanna Weaver shows how all of us, Marys and Marthas alike, can draw closer to our Lord: deepening our devotion, strengthening our service, and doing both with less stress and greater joy.

    This book includes a twelve-week Bible study for individual or group use. A Study Guide and a corresponding ten-session video series on DVD or online are available separately.

    2019 Best Book Awards, Winner in Religion: Christianity
    2018 Catholic Press Association, 3rd Place in Scripture: Popular Studies
    2018 Independent Press Award, Distinguished Favorite: Religion Non-Fiction

    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.

    Manual for Women

    Manual for Women
    Bean, Danielle
    $29.95
    Manual for Women is for women who seek to grow closer to Christ and his Blessed Mother, for women who seek to discover or rediscover what it means to be a woman after God's own heart.

    In Part I, noted Catholic author Danielle Bean, using examples from Scripture, the lives of the saints, and modern life, reminds women of today to embrace and cultivate their distinctive gifts:

  • Receptivity, or an openness and welcoming spirit toward others.Sensitivity, or an ability to see and understand the needs and feelings of others.
  • Compassion, or an instinct to suffer with and alleviate the suffering of others.
  • Beauty, or the recognition that the female body is a reflection of her great capacity for nurturing, whether she ever becomes a mother physically or not.
  • Generosity, or an extraordinary capacity for self-giving love.

  • She also reminds readers that they will embrace those gifts most perfectly if they imitate that most immaculate of women, Mary of Nazareth. Bean concludes with practical advice which every woman, whatever her state in life, will benefit from.

    In Part II, readers will be nourished by the depth and richness of the Catholic tradition's teaching on women. Church documents, wisdom of the saints, relevant passages from Scripture, wisdom from today's Catholic women, prayers, and hymns will inspire, delight, and edify women, young and old, single and married, consecrated to God in the religious life or a member of the laity.

    Now, perhaps more than ever, women need to be women. But what it means to be a woman has been so distorted by the various ideologies that the modern world imposes. Manual for Women serves as a reminder to women that authentic femininity (and, yes, authentic feminism) springs from an embrace, rather than a spurning, of the great and unique gifts God has bestowed on them, whether they be married or single, in religious life or a laywomen, a homemaker or a women who works outside the home, or, as so many women in today's hectic world are, some combination thereof!

    Pray Fully: Simple Steps for Becoming a Woman of Prayer

    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.
