By Johnnette S. Benkovic
"The true woman and mother, by her caring and
understanding, knows how to lighten for others the burden of life.
Thus she becomes the great conqueror of everyday life. Every day she
conquers anew by making the trivialities of life bearable. And
should no one even notice, her conquest had been thorough indeed."
Noted author and speaker Johnnette S.
Benkovic guides women into a deep and rewarding walk with the Lord with Grace-Filled Moments,
a unique combination of Scripture, insightful quotes, Johnnette's own
penetrating insights, and heart-felt prayers. This beautifully
devised book can successfully be used by the individual woman to enhance
her spiritual life, or it can be used by a small group of women who come
together for growth and encouragement. Grace-Filled Moments
is a book to be savored, absorbed and treasured by women of all ages and
A note to
CatholicMom.com participants from author Johnnette S. Benkovic
I pray that Grace-Filled Moments
becomes an opportunity to experience the rich treasures of your femininity as well as coming to a
understanding of who God desires you to be as a woman. He has incredible plans in mind
for us, and it is nothing less than this: to aid humanity in not falling. We
women have been gifted with the grace to bear life -- physical life and spiritual life. As women of God, the grace
to bear spiritual life flows
from our intimacy with Him and our union with His holy will. Whether we are
moms raising our children according to the precepts of the Church and the laws
of God, whether we are working women who bring Christ's presence into the
work place, whether we are consecrated women whose vocation is a conduit of
grace in the world, whether we are single women whose lives are dedicated to the
service of others in any number of ways, through our gender we women are called to spiritual motherhood. May each of us
live our call in union with Him who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
In His Service,
Johnnette S. Benkovic
