Dear Administrator,

Blessed Advent to you and your loved ones. May God bless you with every spiritual blessing in the heavens during this holy season of watching, waiting, reflecting, and remembering.


Could I be so bold as to ask again for you to remember our mission during this special season if you haven't already? Would you help us achieve our year-end match challenge goal of $30,420?


Recently I gave a talk at one of our Women of Grace groups right here in Birmingham, Alabama. The Lord gave me the scripture passage above from Galatians 4:4, “In the fullness of time, God sent His son born of a woman….”


I shared that Satan has been targeting women since the very beginning. Why? Because woman is so integral to the plan of God. She is the sign of the sacred and she points the eyes of man to the reality of who he is, created in the image and likeness of God. When Satan can destroy a woman's authentic femininity and undermine her spiritual maternity, he has greater access not only to her but also to her husband, her children, and her family. We see the noxious fruits of this in our culture today.


That is why we must place ourselves under the watchful protection and guidance of THE women, Our Blessed Mother Mary. Eve turned away from God, but Mary turned us back. 


Here at Women of Grace, we are constantly discerning how best to inform, instruct, and inspire women (and girls) about the importance of who they are and how to model themselves after Our Lady and the great women saints. From our in-person and online study programs to our life-changing events. From book studies on the great masters like Thomas Dubay to our world-renowned expertise on the dangers of the New Age movement. And now in 2024, we are preparing to relaunch the Benedicta Institute for Women with some of the most well-respected Catholic scholars in the world. We make every effort to make these opportunities as affordable as possible, many of them are free. We can’t do this without your help.

The need is more urgent than ever because the attack on women (and girls) is more ferocious than ever. Why? It's because she holds the keys to LIFE in her hands. It is through the womb of a woman that new souls enter the world. It is primarily through a woman's heart and intellect that souls are formed. It is through a woman's nurturing charisms that families (the cornerstone of civilization) are fostered. The enemy knows his time is short and he has pulled out all the stops. Many of our women and girls are falling into his diabolical disorientation.

We have to work more aggressively than ever to reach as many women as possible. We NEED holy, healed women NOW in our time!!! Women like Joan of Arc, Catherine of Siena, Therese of Lisieux, Maria Goretti, Josephine Bakhita, Edith Stein, and so many others. We know it can be done because it has been done! Holy women of the past have dramatically transformed and elevated the culture in which they lived.

The Vatican Council fathers recognized the importance of women when they stated, “Women of the entire universe, whether Christian or non-believing, you to whom life is entrusted at this grave moment in history, it is for you to save the peace of the world.”

Women of Grace continues to answer this plea. God is already putting together our plans for 2024. And this time of year, we must beg your help because it costs money to execute these important programs and resources. We do not have any outside funding source. We MUST ask YOU. 


If we are to continue our mission to transform the world one woman at a time by affirming women in their dignity and vocation as daughters of God and in their gift of authentic femininity through ongoing spiritual formation, we need your help. We cannot realize our vision of a civilization and culture imbued with the spirit of the Gospel renewed, revitalized, and healed through the love of God without you.


Would you be willing to give $5, $10, $15, $25, $50, or more? No gift is too small! As a reminder, every gift will be matched up to $30,420 by a generous group of donors who have created the 2023 “Go Forward” Matching Challenge Fund.


Perhaps Our Lord is prompting you to a greater level of generosity. Your gift of $1,000 becomes $2,000. And $2,000 becomes $4,000. Imagine how many women and girls will discover who they were created to be and to set free from wounds of the past! God CANNOT be outdone in generosity. And our mission, a mission formed in the mind and heart of God, CANNOT stand without YOU! Perhaps you can make a gift of $5,000 or $10,000 or more. God will reward you abundantly!


Many beautiful organizations are seeking your help this time of the year. Please prayerfully consider us. We have a proven twenty-year track record of putting your gifts to work directly for the women, girls, and families that we serve.
