About this item

Christ wants you to join in His saving work.

He has called you to be a holy handmaid, a royal princess, a daughter of the Most High: a fighter alongside your King on the spiritual battlefield for souls.

To equip you for this mission, author Julie Onderko here brings you exciting tales about bold female warriors of the spirit, from heroic Old Testament women such as Judith, Deborah, and Esther (who prefigured the most courageous of all, the Virgin Mary) to more recent icons of the Faith, including Saint Clare, Saint Monica, and Saint Faustina.

From within their diverse circumstances and vocations, these storied women warriors for Christ will teach you the powerful spiritual tactics that they used in their battles against the devil – and that you can use, too! – tactics that will help you grow holy even as you engage in the profoundest endeavor of all: saving souls for Christ.

In the great drama of human history and on a continuing basis, souls are won or lost for eternity. With all the angels and saints – and in particular with the Virgin Mary – you are called to play your part. Open these pages to prepare yourself today!

Among the additional holy women you’ll meet in these pages are:

  • St. Jane de Chantal
  • St. Margaret Bosco
  • St. Zélie Martin
  • St. Thérèse of Lisieux
  • St. Joan of Arc
  • St. Perpetua

An inspiring book that uses relatable examples from the lives of women who became saints because of their cooperation with God's plan for salvation. My attention was held by the unique way Julie tells the stories of these women warriors from the Old Testament up to present times. Well written and inspiring, this is a must read for anyone wanting confirmation not only for the necessity of going to battle for souls but learning and being inspired by women who have done it in the past and the strategies they used.

Very helpful and inspiring
This was a very enjoyable and inspiring book. I especially liked the variety of Saints. They came from such different backgrounds and experienced unique struggles. It was easy to find someone who I could identify with. The examples of how the Saints cooperated with God during their struggles gave me both hope and an example to follow in my own difficulties.
