When I encountered Endow I thought to myself, finally! This is it! Endow is a pot of gold.


This second study examines the question, “What is Love” through an exploration of CS Lewis’ Four Loves as well as an introduction of Gary Chapman’s Five Love Languages. It explores the purpose of friendship and outlines how to identify a good friend. In discussing several holy friendships, including Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross as well as Saint Francis de Sales and Saint Jane Frances de Chantal, the concept of true friendship is further solidified. The study concludes with an exploration of the difference between love and lust and introduces the concept of dating with intention, allowing young women to understand the critical importance of surrounding themselves with those who desire what is best for them and will enable them to flourish.

Navigating the study
This four-part series was created for young women in high school.

  • Created for Love
  • Created for Community
  • Created for Holiness
  • Created for Mission

Through reading aloud, group discussion, and dynamic activities, young women are introduced to their identity as daughters of God and their role in the Church and society through the intellectual tradition of our Catholic faith. Through these studies, they will grow in knowledge and understanding of the faith, leading to the development of virtue and a more active interior life. Ultimately, the goal of the Endow High School Study Series is to draw young women into a deeper, more profound relationship with Jesus Christ, the author of our dignity as women.
