It all started on October 9, 2015, in Irondale, Alabama, the home of the Eternal Word Television Network. I was at the Network with the co-developers of the Young Women of Grace Facilitator/Teacher Guide, Mary Dillenback and Susan Jacobsen for a few days to tape shows about our new program. On the final day of our visit, we were getting ready to do a “live” show which meant that the audience would be able to call in and ask questions about Young Women of Grace.

Johnnette Benkovic will serve as co-host of EWTN’s coverage of the historic convocation of Catholic leaders who are coming together in Orlando, Florida next weekend to come up with ways to bring the joy of the Gospel into the fabric of our nation.
As the Catholic world remembers Mother Angelica, the feisty nun who founded the largest religious communications organization on the planet, it will do us all well to reflect on this first anniversary of her death on how effectively she evangelized just by daring to be herself.
The week of January 16th through January 20th, we will be featuring several special guests on the Women of Grace LIVE radio program. Please mark your calendars and be sure to tune in via EWTN!
It's been a blessing and honor to be here at the World Meeting of Families, guest hosting the event with EWTN Bookmark's Host, Doug Keck. I wanted to share a few pictures and highlights with our Women of Grace family and friends so that you could get a sense of all that is happening here. Please keep us in your prayers as we continue to pray for you.
I will add updates to this page as I am able. God bless you!
We are sharing the urgent prayer request below from EWTN's Facebook page:
Urgent prayer request from Sister Monica, Daughter of Charity in Paris: "Members of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul in Syria were kidnapped, along with their wives and children. The children were isolated and put into cages. Adults who do not deny their faith will be decapitated, and their children burned alive in the cages. Let us remain fervently united in prayer, and have as our intention the welfare of all brothers and sisters in our Christian faith who are being held hostage. Mother Mary, please console them, and protect them all from harm! O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee." EWTN Prayer Warriors, please share this with everyone you know.
One of the highlights of my year is attending the Catholic Radio Conference, sponsored by EWTN and the Catholic Radio Association, and held each year in Birmingham, Alabama. It is a beautiful time of fellowship with the men and women who have also been called to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through the airways.
