In this riveting collection of true stories, Catholic speaker and spiritual director Christine Watkins inspires readers with stories of conversion and healing linked to the intercession of Mary.
In Full of Grace, Watkins tells her own dramatic story of miraculous healing and conversion to Catholicism, along with the stories of five others, including a homeless drug addict, a stripper, and a modern-day hero. Each story is accompanied by scripture, prayer, and discussion exercises designed to remind readers of Mary of Medjugorje's intercession on their behalf and God's personal love for them.
Ideal for use in parish faith-sharing groups, addiction recovery support groups, and for parish retreats.

“Direct, honest, heart-rending, and miraculous.”
“Christine Watkins’s beautiful and touching collection of conversion stories prompted by Medjugorje’s apparitions is further proof of the good fruits of this ongoing phenomenon. The stories are direct, honest, heart-rending, and miraculous.”
Author of Medjugorje: The Message
“Give it to everyone you know.”
“How much do those caught in the coils of life’s deceptive attractions long to think there is a way out? I praise God that the subjects of these conversion stories care enough about us to bare their souls so that others might have hope. Who could resist the arms outstretched of Jesus and Mary as depicted by these desperate souls? Read this book. Rejoice. Give it to everyone you know who is looking for happiness in the wrong places and is desperate for salvation.”
