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

I truly enjoyed your book, Holy Handmaids of the Lord. I was captured by the lives of these holy women, so strong, powerful and doing the Will of God. Julie told their stories in such a concise manner, I wanted to continue to study their holy ways and apply it to my daily life, increasing my Faith and doing God's Will. The book is so good, I'm going to read it again and again. Joyce Kissel-Barth, Parishioner @ Christ the King Parish in Milwaukie OR

The Battle for Souls
Holy Handmaids of the Lord helped me to gain a deeper understanding of what it means to be Christian woman in service to the Lord. I love how Julie Onderko presents theses saints as remarkable and, at the same time, down to earth women. I loved learning new details about saints known to me and meeting a few new saints, as well.

Excellent Read!
Julie does a masterful job at reminding us through the actions of these saints, that regardless of our status or stage of life that cooperation with God's Holy Will can help us and others along the road to salvation. Each section of this delightful book is a quick read, but also has great depth and an opportunity to see God's works in the many aspects of being a woman and a Holy Handmaid of the Lord. I would highly recommend this book!
