Don't you just love this season? The air is filled with
joy, generosity, and gratitude.
The Women of Grace® team would like to personally express the many ways we are grateful for you!
"I am grateful for our Women of Grace® Regional Coordinators! They are like a fleet of grace-filled women heeding the call of God in their lives with unwavering dedication and leadership. These spiritual mothers accomplish so much in their roles for God's Kingdom by truly living the Gospel and loving His daughters in their personal spiritual journeys! God has richly blessed this organization and me personally with these women 'in the field!' I am blessed to be a part of this awesome team!!"
- Thea Parsons, Event Coordinator
"There are no words to express how much all the people I have met over the 20 years I have worked for this ministry have inspired me and enriched my faith. All of our Sacred Sisters who are always there to offer a prayer and a helping hand when one is needed. Our donors who have been so faithful with their financial help and especially their prayers. Those I have worked closely with each and every day have been a blessing. Thank you to all who have watched and listened to our programs, attended events and supported us through the years, we thank God each and every day for you! And I thank God for the work that He has given me as it has truly been a gift that I can unpack each day and find new blessings and graces."
- Joanne Kane, Development and Administrative Coordinator
"I am so grateful for everyone who has given so generously to this ministry with their time, talent, and treasure. Having come from 'the other side' of this vital message about authentic femininity, I have personally experienced the heartache, disappointment, and pain that comes from following the world's idea of feminism. If only I knew then what I know now! Thanks to Women of Grace®, I can now spread the truth about who we are and help women from all walks of life avoid the same mistakes that I made. It's a satisfaction too profound for words! Make no mistake about it, we're changing lives, and it's all because of people like you who have opened your hearts to this mission. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
-Susan Brinkmann, OCDS, Director of
"My favorite part of this Season is remembering all of the wonderful individuals who have supported me in this beautiful life. This year, I am so thankful for the men and women who tirelessly serve the mission of Women of Grace® in so many ways: through prayers, encouragement, and financial support. Our Lord has truly blessed us this year, and I am filled with gratitude as I remember all of His blessings!"
- Betsey Sawyer, Mission Advancement Coordinator, Study Programs
"I am grateful to the countless donors and volunteers who have partnered in our mission to 'transform the world.' From the time I had my conversion in 1998, I wanted to dedicate my life to serving the Lord because He has been so merciful to me. It is such an honor to stand side-by-side with individuals who are just as passionate about the Women of Grace® mission and want to help women and their families understand how loved they are by Our Lord Jesus and His Church. It is truly a gift and blessing to serve you and I can't wait to meet you in person at one of our retreats, conferences, studies or events."
- Isabelle Liberatore, Director of Development and Administration
"I am grateful for the mission of Women of Grace each and every time I look into the eyes of one of my sisters. I realize just how much love we have to give to the world, each other, and our families. Where ever the feminine genius is woven in, whether family life, work life, or community life- there is love. Ours is a mission of love, to 'aid humanity in not falling.' I am so incredibly blessed to be on this journey shoulder to shoulder with each of you my sisters. I love you all!"
- Adora Ibrahim, Mission Advancement Coordinator,
Benedicta Leadership Institute for Women
"It's gratifying and uplifting when I see the response to our appeals to partner with us in our mission. It shows people recognize the importance of what we are attempting to do to help our sisters to know Christ and the Church in a deeper way. I believe our partners are also encouraged to see how much we have accomplished for women and are now reaching out to our Young Women of Grace®."
- Jane Spencer, Customer Service Representative
"I am extremely thankful for all of the supporters of Women of Grace®. It is through their generosity, sacrifice and continued prayers and encouragement that we are able to push forward in our mission to 'transform the world, one woman at a time' and indirectly, 'one man at a time', as they witness and respond to the transformation of these women.
The Church tells us that 'the Christian life on earth is a warfare' and like all soldiers and armies in battle, we soldiers of Christ need our fellow warriors in this spiritual warfare to support, encourage, pray and be our spiritual allies. It is truly a team effort in all our endeavors and without our financial and prayer supporters, none of us would survive on the battlefield of life.
Thank you Prayer Warriors, Financial Supporters and all of you fellow spiritual soldiers. HUA!!!!"
-Thomas K. Sullivan, Director of Operations
"I am grateful for the great privilege of serving each and every one of you in this important mission and vision that has been entrusted to us by God. Absolutely none of it would be possible without His grace and your support. My heart is filled with abundant love and gratitude for YOU!"
